LITTLE RED INFRARED CONVEYOR DRYER
Fast curing of all DTG inks and pretreatment, as well as screen printed water-based inks and discharge — at a low 4.6 kW of power, drawing only 22 amps @ 230V and just 7 amps at 400V!
The Lo-E 2D Dryer cures DTG printed inks and pretreatment, and water-based screen printed inks and discharge, at high rates using 20% less energy than comparable dryers — only 22 amps @ 230V and 7 amps @ 400V. The compact size is ideal for use in any shop where limited amperage is a concern. Modularity of Vastex floor-standing dryers permits you to easily add one or multiple heating chambers and extend the conveyor belt, allowing a significant increase in curing capacity.
This exclusive Vastex advantage enables you to increase capacity as your business grows, limited only by your available floor space and power supply. All Vastex dryers except the smallest D-100 and D-1000 can be expanded. Conveyor extensions can also be added to the front or back of your dryer to optimize loading and cooling/unloading of garments.
The Lo-E 2D is a great machine for a single DTG operating out of a home or, with expansion, larger shops will find it an effective production dryer.
At 3 minutes dwell time it cures up to 45 garments/hr* with digital white ink. At 60 seconds dwell time, it cures up to 88 garment/hr* using CMYK DTG, pretreat-only**, water-based inks or discharge.
Drawing 22 amps at 230 volts, the dryer's two 24 in. (61 cm) wide by 18 in. (46 cm) deep high-efficiency infrared heaters provide 4,600 watts (4.6 kW) of power, maximizing curing capacity and in turn, minimizing energy costs per garment cured. Height-adjustable, the heaters offer dual zone temperature control and carry an industry-leading 15-year warranty.
A 370 CFM (10.5 m3/min.) exhaust system evacuates moisture and air contaminates from the heating chamber, and cools the enclosure's outer skin and control panel.
The 30 in. (76 cm) wide by 88 in. (224 cm) long conveyor runs true by means of a low friction belt aligner patented by the company, with belt speed controls allowing infinitely adjustable dwell times from 1 minute to five minutes.
