Model Little Red X2D - Infrared Conveyor Dryer
Model Little Red X2D - Infrared Conveyor Dryer
 
 
All Little Red series dryers have a tilting heater design. Works great for curing hats.

The LittleRed® X2D Dryer is the most compact and affordable DTG-capable dryer from Vastex. Radically new heat mapping speeds the curing of ink jet, water-based and discharge inks, as well as DTG-digital inks, making the X2D an unbeatable value for smaller shops.

The X2D model comes with a high powered pre-heating zone that surges ink temperatures to over 300°F (149°C) within the first several inches of conveyor travel inside the 27 in. (69 cm)

heating chamber. Two closely spaced, height adjustable infrared heaters and dual zone heat controls maintain consistent temperatures needed for DTG and all other inks. Rapid preheating maximizes the dwell time for each kind of ink, allowing increased conveyor belt speeds and dryer output.

Model X2D-30 has a 30 in. (76 cm) wide belt, two 24 in. (61 cm) wide infrared heaters (6300W @ 240V total wattage), and cures up to 240+ garments per hour with plastisol inks, up to 122+ garments per hour with water-based inks, and up to 34 garments per hour with DTG/digital white ink at 3 minutes dwell time.

This model comes with a powered exhaust system as standard to rapidly remove moisture and air contaminates from the heating chamber, as well as to cool the skin and controls.

The conveyor length is 66 in. (168 cm), with a low friction belt aligner and belt speed controls to precisely set dwell times from 35 seconds up to four minutes.

Fully expandable, additional heating chambers and conveyor belt lengths allow for future expansion as business grows.

The heaters of all Vastex dryers carry an industry-leading 15-year warranty, and feature closely spaced coils to provide high-density, medium-wavelength infrared heat for maximum cure speed without cold spots or under curing associated with conventional units.

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

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.
