Vastex BigRed High Performance Electric Screen Printing Tunnel Dryers
BigRed dryers offer true multi-purpose drying to suit the most demanding shops that need to cure DTG, water based and plastisol inks on one truly high performance platform. Upgradeable for future expansion. 15 Year heater warranty.
If you are looking for an infra red screen printing dryer in a high production environment or perhaps to cure water-based inks, or DTG prints alongside plastisol, the BigRed range offers a versatile, high speed solution on an upgradeable platform.
The BigRed range offer two main models, each being available in two sizes. The first is a three heater (BR 3) single heat zone dryer which is ideal for printers that need high performance in curing plastisol and water based inks.
The second option is a four heater (BR 4) dual zone heat control unit that is ideal for curing DTG printed textiles. The production capacity of the BigRed 4 models fit in-between the LittleRed X3-D single and double chamber models, thereby offering an additional stepping stone in production capacity.
Filtered air intake provides a clean cure with no recycled fumes and make-up air (forced air) and negative exhaust air removes moisture and fumes fast.
Cool down air at the end of the conveyor helps to quickly reduce the temperature of the garment, a clever feature not found on many small format screen print tunnel dryers.
- Additional heating chambers to increase production
- Belt extensions
- Locking castors
- Exhaust hood (reduces fumes at exit)
- Hat support rail
- Reversing belt / HD drive
