American Phoenix Takes Flight Once Again
American M&M Screen Printing Equipment announces the reintroduction of their popular Phoenix
Turbo infrared dryer. Geared specifically for the textile printer who needs fast turnaround with
consistent results, the Phoenix is a time-tested dryer with a thirty-year track record of success.
The Phoenix cures all plastisol inks, as well as a variety of solvent based and specialty inks too.
To keep energy costs low but production speeds up, the Phoenix combines a radiant heat panel design with a series of carefully positioned jet-knives to direct and recirculate hot air in the chamber. This results in much less drying time when compared to similar dryers. Depending on how many garments the customer wants to place on the conveyer at one time, belt widths come in 48, 60 and 72 inches. The conveyer features a rugged Fiberlon™ belt that is heat-resistant to 500°, with a variable belt speed control and digital readout which enable the operator to find and maintain the exact speed necessary for any particular garment. Standard configuration for the Phoenix features a 5' infeed, 10' main heat chamber, and 2' outfeed.
Expanding is easy with ambient cooling stations available in both 4' and 8'sections, and the unit can also be built with an optional quartz preheat module for customers with special temperature/curing requirements. Additional conveyor sections are also available as options, as well as a stainless-steel lining insert upgrade for customers who want to get the longest possible life from their dryer.
Operator conveniences include an easy-to-clean, outside access filter; tool-free access to heat panels for quick panel height adjustment; simple belt-tracking adjustment; and a dual-position control panel that easily mounts on either side of the dryer to accommodate limited floor space or operator preference. The Phoenix Turbo is built at the company's headquarters and main manufacturing facility in Chicago, Illinois, along with a variety of UV, infrared, gas and quartz dryers.
