Vastex EconoRed III Conveyor Dryer

The Vastex EconoRed III dryers in 30 and 54 in. (76 and 137 cm) belt widths cure garments screen-printed with plastisol, water-based inks or discharge at higher rates, in a smaller footprint, and at lower cost. Fully expandable, these dryers can grow as your needs grow.



SKU: VAS ER-III Category:


The Vastex EconoRed III-30, with 30 in. (76 cm) wide belt and three 24 in. (61 cm) wide heaters (total 10,800 watts) cures up to 475 plastisol-printed garments/h, or 100 garments/h screen-printed with water-based ink or discharge.

Model ER-III-54, with 54 in. (137 cm) wide belt and three 48 in. (122 cm) heaters (total 21,600 watts) cures up to 950 plastisol-printed garments/h, or 300 garments/h screen-printed with water-based ink or discharge.

The EconoRed III Deluxe model, available in either width, comes as standard with adjustable side-mounted heaters that increase the “cure zone” to 24 inches on the EC III-30 and to 48 inches on the EC III-54. Other standard features on the deluxe model include heavy-duty drop down wheels for easy shop mobility and an 18 in. (46 cm) front conveyor extension that provides additional room for loading garments on the belt.

Capacity of both models can be doubled, tripled or quadrupled by adding one, two or three modular heating chambers and conveyor belt extensions — as new or when needs grow.

A top-mounted ventilation system filters exhaust air, cools the enclosure’s outer skin, and evacuates moisture and fumes from the heating chamber. It also makes ER-III dryers over 20 percent quieter and 5 in. (13 cm) narrower, and allows the control box to be positioned the right side (standard) or left side of the enclosure to suit shop layouts.

All heaters feature closely spaced coils that provide high-density, medium-wavelength infrared heat for maximum cure speed without cold spots or under-curing, and come with a 15-year warranty.

The Vastex Infrared Focusing System allows heater adjustment to any height from 2 to 7 in. (5.1 to 17.8 cm) above the belt, allowing the operator to compensate for bulky garments or hats. Models with side heaters can be adjusted from 4 to 7 in. (10 – 17.8 cm) from belt to heater.

All models include a digital belt speed display and a belt tracking system for increased belt life. The digital PID temperature controller is accurate to +/- 1°F (+/-0.5°C), allowing the operator to fine-tune or accurately repeat drying results at any future time.
