The LittleRed™ X2D Dryer is the most compact and affordable DTG-capable dryer from Vastex. Radically new heat mapping speeds the curing of ink jet, water-based and discharge inks, as well as DTG-digital inks, making the X2D an unbeatable value for smaller shops.
The X2D model comes with a high powered pre-heating zone that surges ink temperatures to over 300°F (149°C) within the first several inches of the heating chamber. Two closely spaced, height adjustable infrared heaters and dual zone heat controls maintain consistent temperatures needed for DTG and all other inks. Rapid preheating maximizes the dwell time for each type of ink, allowing increased conveyor belt speeds and dryer output.
Model X2D-54 has a 54" (137 cm) belt width with two 48 in. (122 cm) wide infrared heaters designed to cure up to 480+ garments per hour with plastisol ink, 180+ with water-based ink and up to 52 garments per hour with DTG/digital white ink at 3.5 minutes dwell time.
It also comes with a powered exhaust system as standard to rapidly remove moisture and air contaminates from the heating chamber, as well as to cool the outer skin and controls.
Capacity can be expanded as needs grow by adding optional modular heating chamber(s) and/or longer conveyor belts.
