Vastex LittleRed X3
The all-new multi-purpose LittleRed X3-D infrared dryer cures direct-to-garment (DTG) printed textiles as well as plastisol, water-based and discharge-printed garments at higher rates than possible with conventional dryer designs.
It features a high-powered pre-heating zone that rockets ink temperatures past 300°F (149ºC) within the first several inches of conveyor travel, maximizing the distance and dwell time for optimum curing of any ink, allowing increased conveyor belt speeds and dryer output.
The Little Red X3-D model is equipped with a 30 in. (76.2 cm) wide conveyor belt and three 24 in. (61 cm) wide infrared heaters (8300W @ 240V total wattage) and can cure 360+ plastisol-printed garments/h, 100+ water-based or discharge-printed garments/h, and up to 50+ garments/h inkjet printed with digital white ink.
With overall conveyor belt length of 88 in. (224 cm) long and 41 in. (104 cm) long heating chamber, the X3-D features a powerful 380 cfm (10.7 cmm) targeted exhaust system as standard to rapidly remove moisture and air contaminates from the heating chamber, as well as cool the skin and controls.
Capacity can be increased as needs grow by adding additional heating chambers, extending the belt length and increasing the infinitely-variable speed setting of the digital belt control.
