Innovative Infrared Dryer is Ideal for Adhesive Curing and Drying Applications

May, 2004, Eden Prairie, MN - Research, Inc., an industry leader in the design, development, and manufacture of electric infrared heating components and integrated heating systems, recently introduced a new infrared dryer, the DryIR® Model 6040. The DryIR heater offers the capability to concentrate infrared heat directly to the desired area, resulting in immediate evaporation. This heater makes it simple to add extra capability enabling increased line speeds. Designed for easy installation, low operation cost, and minimal maintenance, the system is an economical solution.

The DryIR Model 6040 is designed for drying applications that require a clean, responsive, non-contact heat source on target areas up to 4 inches (102 mm) wide. It is ideal for water-based drying, solvent-based drying and adhesive curing. The infrared energy emitted from each heater can be adjusted to match the specific heating requirements for a variety of applications. It provides a clean and efficient heat source, which does not contact the product being heated. The modular design of the heater allows units to be installed in a variety of configurations suitable for many applications.

The Model 6040 heater supplies a variety of features and related benefits. The aluminum construction of the DryIR combined with the air-cooling, allows the heater to withstand continuous high-temperature operation. An integral fan blows air past the lighted lamps resulting in heated air impinging on the target product surface. The hot air combined with the infrared energy produced by the quartz lamps produces extremely efficient drying. A digital power controller comes integrated with Models 6040.
