Vastex LittleRed X3-D DTG and Water Based Screen Printing Dryers
The all new LittleRed X3 tunnel dryers are true multi-purpose machines that cure DTG, water based and plastisol prints at much higher rates than other dryers. LittleRed X3 dryers can be upgraded in future and offer a 15 year heater warranty.
Featuring a high power pre-heating zone, ink is taken up to cure temperature very rapidly to maximise the dwell time of the shirt in the oven for optimal curing. This means the dryer can be run faster for better production speed and offer the possibility of curing 100+ DTG printed shirts per hour.
Fitted with a powerful exhaust for rapid removal of fumes and moisture as well as X-Series conveyor belt tracking system with heavy duty motor. The digital temperature controller offers +/- 1 F controllability and the dryer occupies a very modest floorspace for its production capability.
Ideally, three phase power is required for this range. If you need similar production without the need to cure DTG and only have single phase power, the EconoRed II range of high production infra red tunnel dryers would be ideal.
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 infrared panels.
- Additional heating chambers to increase production
- Belt extensions
- Locking castors
- Creeper gear (for ultra slow belt movement)
- Exhaust hood
