IR Dryers

HMI infrared (IR) dryers and modular conveyers are an economical way to maximize drying efficiency and reduce energy costs. Incorporating black-body, long wavelength (5µm) infrared elements, IR dryers transmit evenly distributed heat with minimal absorption loss, while measurably outperforming hot plate and 3µm wavelength dryers.

All HMI dryers offer zone construction. Built as a series of open bed zones, heat zones and cooling zones, the requirements of the process are incorporated into the design. Open beds are typically for loading, unloading and inspection purposes. Heat zones are available in two foot sections. The temperature of each two foot section can be individually controlled, monitored and alarmed. The cooling zones include forced air exhaust.

Each dryer is available with a woven stainless steel belt, stainless steel ware trays, programmable over/under temperature alarms and adjustable belt speed for 0-75 inches per minute. All IR Dryer models can be integrated with HMI’s product line of loaders and unloaders.

The standard MCD models achieve 210°C maximum temperatures. The CDO models are capable of maintaining 310°C maximum temperatures and have enhanced insulation and solid metal ends to accommodate higher temperatures.

HMI IR Dryers are built from heavy-gauge steel to endure through repeated heat cycles, are easy to operate and are available in custom designed configurations. Whether you need a stand-alone or an in-line unit, the HMI IR Dryer offers an economic way to satisfy your paste and process requirements.

CDO-3600 DRYER Belt Width 36

The HMI CDO 3600 IR Dryer has a 36” stainless steel belt. It has the high temperature heaters (max. temp. at 310°C), controllers and the associated modifications to enhance the insulation and durability of the mechanical elements affected by the increased thermal exposure.

All HMI IR Dryers can be configured to accommodate the varying demands of the process. Custom length heat zones, cooling zones and open belt zones can be mixed and matched to precisely meet the thermal profile recommended for the paste.
