Electric Infrared Ovens - Continuous and Batch

LittleRed logo X3D54



The LittleRed X3D-54 infrared oven with 54 in. (137.2 cm) wide conveyor belt accommodates large or wide items and features a high-powered boost zone that spurs substrate temperatures past 300°F (149°C) within the first few inches of conveyor travel. By significantly shortening the pre-heat time, the X3D allows items to cure at the optimum temperature and dwell time without constant monitoring.

The oven's three 48 in. (122 cm) wide heaters (17,800W @ 240V total watts) are digitally-controlled and height-adjustable to maximize curing efficiency for bulky or over-sized objects. The X3D also offers precision-thermal-profiling (PTP) to match curing conditions to the drying characteristics of each process.

The multi-purpose oven is 88 in. (223.6 cm) in overall length, 65 in. (165.1 cm) wide and 50 in. (127 cm) high, and features a 650 CFM (18.4 CMM) targeted exhaust system as standard to rapidly remove moisture and air contaminates from the heating chamber, keeping the exterior surfaces and controls cool.

The conveyor belt is continuously centered by a roller belt tracking system, and 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.
