Entry level tabletop dryer with 18" (45.7 cm) wide conveyor belt cures up to 110 plastisol-printed garments/h, 50 discharge-printed garments/h, and DTF adhesives at high rates. Adjustable heater height/angle, heat intensity and belt speed provide full operator control. 120V and 240V models with optional powered exhaust remove moisture and fumes — critical for rapid drying of water-based inks and discharge, and curing of DTF adhesives.

ATKINS THERMAL PROBE COMPLETE KIT

(Includes controller, probe and extra wires)
 

Accurately measure ink temperatures to profile conveyor dryers

Atkins Thermal Probe Complete Kit

  • Constructed of temperature-resistant Teflon®, it may be used hundreds of times with-out degradation of material or accuracy of measurement.
  • The wires are designed to make DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE INK. Many other temperature measuring devices are capable of reading only the temperature of the air around the screen printed item. The rise and fall of the ink temperature may be significantly different than that of the garment or the surrounding air.
  • Response Time: 1 second, in liquid
  • Auto Shut-off: Auto shut-off after 10 minutes of non-use
  • Warranty: 5 year instrument warranty, 1 year probe
  • Cable Length: 15 ft cable with Silicone outer jacket
  • Certifications: NSF, CE, Rohs, Weee
  • Temperature Range: -40° to 400°F (-40° to 205°C) with probe
  • Temperature Accuracy: ±0.5F° (±0.3C°) over entire range at ambient temperatures between 68° to 86°F (20° to 30°C)
  • Resolution: 0.1°
  • Waterproof Rating: IPX7 Waterproof-rated
  • Battery Life: 1800 hours typical, 2 AAA Alkaline batteries (included)
 

THE IMPORTANCE OF USING A DONUT PROBE

The Importance of Using a Donut Probe

See it in action!

Testing Ink Temperatures

With the thermometer on and probe plugged in, place the "ring" over an inked part of a garment (or scrap piece of material) with the cross-hairs wires down. Be sure the wires are actually touching the ink. Allow the garment and probe to be fed into the dryer along the conveyor belt. The temperature displayed by the thermometer reflects the rise in temperature of the ink as it moves through the dryer. When the temperature begins to quickly decline, the probe should now have exited the dryer. Unplug the probe and allow only the lead wire to follow the probe through the dryer. DO NOT ALLOW THE THERMOMETER TO GO THROUGH THE DRYER and DO NOT PULL RING BACK as this could damage the delicate cross-hair wires.

 
 

SCREEN PRINT DONUT PROBE

The "Donut" Screen Printing Probe is specially designed to meet the needs of today's Screen Printers.

Screen Print Donut Probe

  • Constructed of temperature-resistant Teflon®, it may be used hundreds of times with-out degradation of material or accuracy of measurement.
  • The wires are designed to make DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE INK. Many other temperature measuring devices are capable of reading only the temperature of the air around the screen printed item. The rise and fall of the ink temperature may be significantly different than that of the garment or the surrounding air.
  • Type K thermocouple surface probe for monitoring the temperature of ink or screen printing dryers
  • Measures temperature from -40° to +400°F (-40° to +205°C)
  • PTFE ring 3 in. (7.6 cm) in diameter supports the sensor wires
  • Response time of 1 second in liquid for fast readings
  • Warranty - 1 year
  • Silicone-jacketed cable 15 ft (457 cm) in length withstands temperatures up to 400°F (205°C)
 
 

TEMPERATURE LASER GUN

 

Temperature Laser Gun

Measures temperature of ink and/or substate.

  • Measures temperatures from 0F to 716°F (-18°C to 380°C) with typical accuracy of +/- 2%
  • Fixed emissivity: 0.95

Please note that a temperature gun "only" measures the surface temperature. For the most accurate results, a donut probe is highly recommended.
