Vastex EconoRed III Conveyor Dryer


Introducing the Vastex EconoRed III Conveyor Dryer, a powerful and efficient solution available in 30-inch, 54-inch, and 78-inch belt widths. Designed to deliver exceptional performance, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness, the EconoRed III dryers are perfect for curing garments screen-printed with plastisol, water-based inks, or discharge.

The Vastex EconoRed III-30 features a 30-inch (76 cm) wide belt equipped with three 24-inch (61 cm) wide heaters, providing a total of 10,800 watts. With this setup, it can cure up to 475 plastisol-printed garments per hour or 100 garments per hour when using water-based ink or discharge.

For larger production needs, we offer the Model ER-III-54 with a 54-inch (137 cm) wide belt and three 48-inch (122 cm) heaters, boasting a total of 21,600 watts. The ER-III-54 efficiently cures up to 950 plastisol-printed garments per hour or 300 garments per hour with water-based ink or discharge.

Our EconoRed III Deluxe model, available in either width, takes performance a step further. It comes standard with adjustable side-mounted heaters that extend the “cure zone” to 24 inches on the EC III-30 and to 48 inches on the EC III-54. Additional deluxe features include heavy-duty drop-down wheels for easy shop mobility and an 18-inch (46 cm) front conveyor extension that provides more space for loading garments onto the belt.

The capacity of both models can be easily expanded as your business grows by adding one, two, or three modular heating chambers and conveyor belt extensions.

The top-mounted ventilation system in the EconoRed III series efficiently filters exhaust air, cools the enclosure’s outer skin, and evacuates moisture and fumes from the heating chamber. This results in a dryer that is over 20 percent quieter and 5 inches (13 cm) narrower, and it allows for flexible positioning of the control box on either the right or left side of the enclosure, based on your shop’s layout.

At the core of the EconoRed III dryers are heaters with closely spaced coils, providing high-density, medium-wavelength infrared heat for maximum cure speed without cold spots or under-curing. We have so much confidence in these heaters that we offer a reassuring 15-year warranty.

The Vastex Infrared Focusing System allows for easy heater adjustment from 2 to 7 inches (5.1 to 17.8 cm) above the belt, enabling operators to accommodate bulky garments or hats. Models with side heaters can be adjusted from 4 to 7 inches (10 – 17.8 cm) from the belt to the heater.

All models come equipped with a digital belt speed display and a belt tracking system, ensuring increased belt life and precise control over the curing process. The digital PID temperature controller is accurate to +/- 1°F (+/-0.5°C), allowing operators to fine-tune or accurately repeat drying results at any future time.
