Capacity of EconoRed-III 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.
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.
