Increase Curing Efficiency

Adelco incorporates the latest technology in its new Duplex textile dryer. Offered by Hirsch International, this curing system is a double-decker oven designed for high-production digital tex-tile printers that need a long cure time on minimal floor space. Screen printers also can benefit from the Duplex dryer concept to reduce the footprint of conventional dryers.

This machine provides 20 feet of oven-curing capacity in the same footprint as a 10-foot oven. The Duplex is very efficient with low-energy consumption due to its single gas burner and seven electrical connections. Due to the reduced energy consumption, the Duplex drastically cuts running costs, the company says.
