Electric Infrared Ovens - Continuous and Batch

LittleRed logo X3D30



The multi-purpose LittleRed X3D-30 infrared oven, with a 30 in. (76.2 cm) wide conveyor, features a high-powered boost zone that rockets substrate temperatures past 300°F (149°C) within the first several inches of conveyor travel, exposing items to efficient at-cure temperatures sooner, allowing increased conveyor belt speeds and oven output.

The oven's three 24 in. (61 cm) wide heaters (8300W @ 240V total wattage) draw under 40 amps (single-phase) and are digitally-controlled and height-adjustable to maximize curing efficiency as items are conveyed through the heating chamber, providing the precision-thermal-profiling (PTP) needed to match curing conditions to the drying characteristics of the process.

The compact unit is configured with an 88 in. (223.6 cm) long x 30 in. (76.2 cm) wide conveyor belt and 41 in. (104.2 cm) long heating chamber, and features a powerful 388 CFM (11 CMM) targeted exhaust system as standard to rapidly remove moisture and air contaminates from the heating chamber, as well as cool the skin and controls.

The conveyor belt is continuously centered by a roller belt tracking system, and is driven at precisely controlled speeds to vary dwell time in single-chamber units from 30 seconds to four minutes, and up to eight minutes in dual chamber models.

A Teflon®-coated fiberglass belt with alignment tracking system is standard. Stainless steel mesh belts for high-heat and/or sanitary applications are optional.

The capacity of all LittleRed ovens can be increased by adding heating chambers, extending the conveyor belt length and increasing the infinitely-variable speed setting of the digital belt control.

The heaters of all Vastex ovens carry an industry-leading 15-year warranty, and feature closely spaced coils that provide high-density, medium-wavelength infrared heat for maximum cure speed without cold spots or under curing.

Modular expandability allows your oven to grow with you

Modular expandability allows your oven to grow with you

The capacity (belt speed) of LittleRed™ X1D, LittleRed™ X2D, LittleRed™ X3D, EconoRed™ III Series, and BigRed™ 4D (shown) conveyor ovens can be doubled or tripled as new or when needs increase by simply adding one or two modular heating chambers and extending the conveyor belt. This eliminates the need to invest in a larger oven than you need at the onset, and avoids the high cost of purchasing a new oven when your needs increase.
