The Lo-E Dryer cures direct-to-garment prints, pretreatment, water-based screen prints and discharge inks at high rates, using 20% less energy than comparable dryers, says Vastex International

The dryer cures up to 45 garments per hour printed with digital white ink at three minutes dwell time, and up to 88 garments per hour at 1.5 minutes dwell time, using CMYK DTG, pretreatment only, or screen printed water-based ink or discharge.

The Lo-E Dryer’s 76cm wide conveyor has a patented belt aligner and speed controls, allowing adjustable dwell times from one to five minutes, adds the manufacturer.

“Capacity can be increased by adding heating chambers and conveyor belt extensions, and conveyor extensions can also be added to the front or back of the dryer to optimise loading and cooling/unloading of garments.

“In addition, its height-adjustable heaters offer dual-zone temperature control, with a boost zone to quickly reach cure temperatures, and carry a 15-year warranty.

“Drawing only 22 amps, the Lo-E Dryer’s infrared heaters provide 4.6 kW of power, maximising curing capacity and minimising energy costs per garment cured, while a 10.5m3/minute exhaust system evacuates moisture and air contaminants from the heating chamber, and cools the enclosure’s outer skin.”
