The M&R Companies introduces the Sprint 3000 DHZ dual heat zone gas dryer, which is destined to be a garment-curing game changer.
Not only can it function as a full-width split-belt 183cm (72in) single-chamber gas dryer, it can be converted on the fly into twin 91cm (36in) heat chambers. The heat chambers can be set at different temperatures and the belts can be run in the same or opposite directions. Operators have the option of heating both or only one zone, dramatically decreasing energy costs.
Sprint 3000 DHZ is loaded with the features that have made Sprint 3000 the most technologically advanced gas dryers in the industry. A variable-frequency AC-drive motor powers M&R’s patent-pending Teflon-coated fiberglass Patriot Belt with the SureTrak roller system.
M&R’s patent-pending AccuSet retention-time belt-speed controller makes it easy to duplicate settings and eliminates the need to convert feet per minute into the time substrates will spend in the heat chamber. Job Recall allows operators to store operational parameters – and recall those settings for similar substrate/ink combinations.
Other features include high-capacity circulation and exhaust blowers; an integrated roll-down outfeed hood with exhaust blower; adjustable entry and exit openings; and cleanout access panels on the sides of the burner sections and drone modules to simplify cleaning and maintenance.
