Forced Air Screen Drying Cabinet Cuts Costs and Drying Times
ALLENTOWN, PA — A Dri-Cab Forced Air Screen Drying Cabinet from Vastex International dries coated screens five times faster than passively-ventilated drying cabinets, it was announced by Mark Vasilantone, president.
"The VDC-2331 Dri-Cab is the latest addition to our line of high-quality, affordable, space-saving equipment specially engineered for smaller shops and entry-level screen printers," he says. "With the VDC-2331 Dri Cab, you can coat and expose your screens the same day, instead of waiting overnight for air drying."
The compact unit can hold up to ten 23 X 31 in. (59 X 79 cm) screens, and features a positive pressure ventilation system with air filter to prevent dust contamination — a common cause of pinholes in air-dried screens. The pressurized cabin dries most coated screens in less than one hour.
To ensure total darkness, the unit is constructed with large overlapping seams, and is equipped with a latching, rubber-sealed door and light-tight bottom exhaust port. Screens sit horizontally on removable shelves that are angled
to prevent screen mesh fabric from touching the shelf surface.
With its forced air design, simple On/Off switch, and easy-access filter housing, the VDC-2331 Dri Cab is economical to operate and easy to clean and maintain. Equipped with locking casters, it can also serve as a mobile stand for a Vastex E-200 or E-1000 LED exposing unit, D-100 Conveyor Dryer, V-1000 table top press or other tabletop equipment, saving floor space.
