Infrared ink drying system
Eden Prairie MN USA
Research Inc. introduces the Speed-Dri Model 3620 infrared heater. The company says the ink drying system provides instantaneous infrared and convection technologies to dry ink printed on target areas up to 1" (25 mm) wide. The Model 3620 is designed for easy installation, low operation cost and minimal maintenance. A combination of fast-responding, medium-wave quartz lamps and convection drying evaporate water and solvents and break down the boundary layer resulting in evaporation of the ink solvent. An integrated fan blows air past the lighted lamps resulting in heated air impingement on the target product surface.
