Additional information about Panther Pad Print Dryers.
The machine height of the Infrared dryer is 115.5 cm and the Combi is 121 cm.Both dryer types comply with all relevant EU Directives.Infrared Dryer only: -The Infrared Dryer is supplied with a heavy-duty normal size rubber 13-amp plug.The expected conveyor working speed of the oven is about 0.5 to 1 metre per minute depending upon the type of ink and substrate in use.
Combi Dryer only: - The Combination Dryer can be connected either via an Isolator on the wall or with a 16 Amp 3 round pin strain-relief plug and socket. We can fit the plug before shipping.It would probably run OK on a 13-amp supply but that would not comply with Health and Safety Regulations. We can also supply the socket if required.The oven has a hot air recycling facility to assist the drying of water-based inks. When selected the hot air recirculation fan blows hot air down onto the conveyor belt which breaks up the vapour saturated layer of air over the print allowing evaporation to carry on at an accelerated rate. There is also a steady slow bleed off of air from the oven which prevents the atmosphere in the oven from becoming vapour saturated, this also assists solvent or water evaporation from the print.The hot air recycling facility allows more even heating of irregular shaped objects and the curing of inks on more delicate products.Expected working speeds with pad printing ink are between 0.75 and 1.5 metres per minute. Thermal conductivity and size of the substrate object as well as the ink type and the film thickness of the print can cause variations in the maximum working speed. The dryer is versatile and can be used in several operational modes from extremely hot direct radiant heat through a combination of gentler radiation and warm air to a hot air oven making it an ideal machine for a wide variety of applications.
Guarantee.As a small firm we do not in the normal course of events do on-site servicing.However we do offer a 1-year guarantee on all parts of our dryers. We can diagnose any problems by telephone, we can email instructions, and deliver any replacement parts next morning.
Spare parts. All dryer components are easily accessible for servicing when necessary.Any parts in these dryers that in the normal coarse of events will eventually wear out have been sourced so that they are easily available either over the counter or overnight from RS Supplies as well as from Panther Dryers. The power relays fitted in these dryers are actually well over-rated but besides that they are 2 pole, which means that when the contacts eventually do fail there is a built in spare pair of contacts without having to install a new relay.
Options. Both types of dryer can be made up with any variation in inlet, oven or outlet length. We can also make specials with taller or wider ovens for extra large items.Any height of conveyor working height can be arranged at the time of manufacture.
