Vastex D1000 Entry Level Infrared Dryer | 26" Belt x 4' Long


Compact Infrared Conveyor Dryer Cures Oversized Screen Printed Garments and DTF Adhesives 

The D-1000 compact infrared heating model comes with 26 in. (66.1 cm) wide belt and 56 in. (142.2 cm) long conveyor belt, with a 25 in. (63.5 cm) infeed as standard. An optional 10 inch conveyor extension is available if desired. A 27.75 in. (70.5 cm) wide chamber infeed allows for loading of heavier and larger garments.

Also optional is a powered exhaust hood to remove moisture and fumes from the heating chamber — critical for rapid drying of water-based inks and discharge, and curing of DTF adhesives.

At 56 in. (142.2 cm) long and 32 in. (81.3 cm) wide overall, the unit fits on tabletops or on utility carts with tops as small as 30 in. (76.2 cm) square, and is available with an optional mobile stand. It is also suitable for mobile screen printers to power on site using a small generator at fairs, concerts, trade shows and other events where larger garments as well as tees may be screen printed.

It is available in 120V or 240V models equipped with a 20 in. (50.8 cm) wide by 16 in. (40.6 cm) long, 2050 watt heater that carries the same 15-year warranty as all Vastex infrared heaters.

Variable controls for both heat intensity and conveyor speed allow fine-tuning of the drying process according to ink type, ink coverage, desired cure temperature, and rate at which items are being screen printed, or coated with DTF adhesives.

The heater can be raised, lowered and pivoted using lock knobs on the sides of the heating chamber according to the thickness of printed garments and/or the angle of printed images on irregularly shaped items, for uniform curing of the printed area using minimum energy. Heater shields are included as standard to maximize edge-to-edge temperature consistency for increased image quality.

The compact unit is CE certified and shippable worldwide via UPS, FedEx, DHL and other small package carriers. 

We strongly recommend using an exhaust hood (EXH-18) on this conveyor dryer when curing DTF adhesives to reduce fume emissions.








Hi/Lo heat adjustment and variable belt speed give you full control.


The D-1000 has a tilting heater design which works great for curing hats or mugs.

Dense coil pattern, heater shields and a 6.35 watt per sq in (0.98 watt per sq cm) infrared heater eliminate hot and cold spots and provide the power you need to get the job done.
