Dense coil pattern, heater shields and a 6.35 watt per sq in (0.98 watt per sq cm) infrared heater eliminate hot and cold spots and provide the power you need to get the job done.

The D-1000 compact infrared heating model comes with 26 in. (66.1 cm) wide belt and 56 in. (142.2 cm) long conveyor belt, with a 25 in. (63.5 cm) infeed as standard. An optional 10 inch conveyor extension is available if desired. A 27.75 in. (70.5 cm) wide chamber infeed allows for loading of heavier and larger garments.

At 56 in. (142.2 cm) long and 32 in. (81.3 cm) wide overall, the unit fits on tabletops or on utility carts with tops as small as 30 in. (76.2 cm) square, and is available with an optional mobile stand. It is also suitable for mobile screen printers to power on site using a small generator at fairs, concerts, trade shows and other events where larger garments as well as tees may be screen printed.

It is available in 120V or 240V models equipped with a 20 in. (50.8 cm) wide by 16 in. (40.6 cm) long, 2050 watt heater that carries the same 15-year warranty as all Vastex infrared heaters.

Variable controls for both heat intensity and conveyor speed allow fine-tuning of the drying process according to ink type, ink coverage, desired cure temperature, and rate at which items are being printed.

The heater can be raised, lowered and pivoted using lock knobs on the sides of the heating chamber according to the thickness of printed garments and/or the angle of printed images on irregularly shaped items, for uniform curing of the printed area using minimum energy. Heater shields are included as standard to maximize edge-to-edge temperature consistency for increased image quality.

The compact unit is CE certified and shippable worldwide via UPS, FedEx, DHL and other small package carriers.

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.

 
 

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)

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.

 
 

CONVEYOR EXTENSIONS & ADDITIONAL CHAMBERS

Vastex Conveyor Extensions make it easy to increase production without buying an entirely new dryer. Extensions can be used to increase the infeed, outfeed, or add additional heat chambers. With bolt-on installation and conveyor belt extensions, your dryer can be upgraded quickly and easily.
