SPECIALIZED CONVEYOR DRYERS
inks, water-based inks and discharge
These Vastex dryers excel at curing all screen printed plastisol inks, water-based inks and discharge in low to high capacities, filling the requirements of beginning screen printers and high volume shops alike. Modular expandability of all floor standing dryers enables you to add heating chambers and conveyor belt sections to double, triple or quadruple belt speeds and
output. All Vastex heaters carry an industry-leading 15-year warranty, and feature closely spaced coils that provide high-density, medium-wavelength infrared heat for maximum cure speed without cold spots or under curing common with lesser designs. Precisely controlled belt speeds enable you to fine tune dwell time.
Entry level tabletop dryers with 18" (45.7 cm) wide belts (D-100) and 26" (66 cm) wide belts (D-1000) in 120 and 240V models offer capacities to 110 plastisol-printed garments/h and 50 garments/h screen printed with water-based ink. Adjustable heater height/angle, heat intensity, belt speed.
Mid- to high-capacity dryers with 30 or 54 in. (76 or 137 cm) wide belts. 120V/2,000 watt single-heater models up to 240V/15,600 watt three-heater models offer capacities from 90 to 720 plastisol-printed garments/h and 45 to 240/h screen printed with water-based ink.
Slimmer profile, and 20% quieter than earlier models, these high production dryers are available in 30" and 54" (76 and 137 cm) belt widths, and in single- or double-heating chamber configurations. EconoRed II dryers can cure up to 1,200 plastisol-printed garments/hour or up to 400/hr with water-based ink or discharge. EconoRed III models can cure up to 1,900 plastisol-printed garments/hr or up to 600/hr with water-based or discharge inks. Deluxe models include side heaters, heavy-duty drop down wheel sets and front conveyor extension.
and water-based screen printing inks and discharge
These Vastex dryers are specifically engineered to cure DTG-printed digital white ink, which is the most difficult due to its high water content, and can therefore also cure all types of screen printed inks and discharge at extremely high rates. Capacities can be doubled, tripled or quadrupled by adding heating chambers and belt extensions.
Little Red "D" models and the BigRed® 4D feature a high-powered pre-heating zone that boosts ink temperatures past 300°F (149°C) within the first several inches (centimeters) of conveyor travel. This increases the dwell time that ink is exposed to optimum curing temperatures, allowing higher conveyor belt speeds.
DTG capable dryer with 30" (76 cm) wide belt draws only 22 amps. Cures up to 45 garments/hr* DTG printed with digital white ink @ 3 minutes dwell time. At only 1.5 minutes dwell time it cures up to 88 CMYK DTG garments/hr*, 88 pretreat-only garments/hr**, or 88 garments/hr screen printed with water-based ink or discharge.
Ultra compact and affordable DTG capable dryers with 18" (45.7 cm) wide belts (LRX1D) and 30" (76 cm) wide belts cure 27 to 52 garments/h DTG printed with digital white ink, 81 to 180/h screen printed with water based ink and 162 to 480/h printed with plastisol ink.
These high-output dryers in 30", 54" and 78" (76, 137, and 198 cm) belt widths offer capacities from 61 to 185 DTG-printed garments/h, 185 to 555/h screen printed with water-based ink and 360 to 1080/h printed with plastisol ink. Ideal for mid- to high-volume DTG and screen printing shops.
BigRed® 4D Series dryers are slimmer and more powerful for curing DTG, water-based, plastisol or discharge inks. Offered in either 30" (76 cm) or 54" (137 cm) belt widths with pre-heating booster zone, high-efficiency air flow mapping system plus four infrared heaters, these robust machines can cure up to 144 garments/h printed with digital white ink, 432/h screen printed with water-based ink and 950/h screen printed with plastisol ink. Deluxe models include side heaters, heavy-duty drop down wheel sets and front conveyor extension.
