3.0 HEAT CHAMBER ASSEMBLY
Assembly of the heat chamber was done at Vastex. It was run and tested for one hour minimum. The
heat chamber will be placed on the conveyor and should not be positioned over the motor and control.
You are now ready to plug into the properly grounded outlet. See the section 5.0 for power
requirements.
4.0 CONVEYOR ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS.
See Document #01-16-003, 004, 005, 006 included with manual.
5.0 POWER REQUIREMENTS
Outlets must be grounded and tight.
5.1 DB120
The DB120 is designed to operate at 120volt AC on a dedicated circuit and will draw 16.5 amps.
You must consult an electrician to prepare the outlet and size the wire for the application. A 12
gauge wire is the minimum size that should be used for a 16.5 amp load.
Note: The plug is a 20 amp Nema 5-20p, requiring the 5-20R receptacle.
5.2 DB120-200
The DB120-200 is designed to operate at 200volt AC on a dedicated circuit and will draw 12
amps. You must consult an electrician to prepare the electrical hookup and size the wire for the
application. A 14 gauge wire is the minimum size that should be used for the 12 amp load.
Note: A 14 gauge cord is supplied. Customers electrician must install outlet.
5.3 DB240
The DB240 is designed to operate at 240volt AC on a dedicated circuit and will draw 13.5 amps.
You must consult an electrician to prepare the outlet and size the wire for the application. A 14
gauge wire is the minimum size that should be used for a 13.5 amp load
Note: The plug is a 15 amp Nema 6-15p, requiring the 6-15R receptacle.
5.4 DB-120-X-EU
The DB-120-X-EU is designed as a 240 volt machine with the Continental Europe plugs.
The 2000 watt heat chamber will draw 8.5 amps and the conveyor well under 1 amp. Please
consult your local electrocution for proper outlet installation.
Note: The plug is a 16 amp CEE 7/7, requiring the proper receptacle.
5.0 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
A.
Be sure your breaker is in the off position and the dryer switch or dial is turned off. Then plug
the unit into the properly rated outlet. See section 5.0 for power requirements.
B.
Turn the belt control on and adjust the speed for 25 seconds travel through the tunnel. An object

placed on the belt then timed through the tunnel is the best way to set this time.
Turn the heat switch “ON”, or the optional temperature dial to “High”.
Allow 15-20 minutes for the heater to get to full temperature before using.
Adjust the heater height to approximately 3" above the product.
If needed, change the belt speed or change the heater height to get the proper cure. (See section
6.0 for help with the proper cure.) If you have the optional temperature dial you can also lower
the heat setting depending on the substrate.
6.0 PROPER CURE
6.1 CURING PLASTISOL WITH INFRARED:
Plastisol ink can fully cure in approximately 15-25 seconds. The ink itself throughout must
achieve 310-320 degrees to cure and fuse to the garment. Actual cure times can vary depending
on environmental conditions such as garment color, ink color, thickness and manufacturer.
Aggressive air movements, though desirable, are not necessary with plastisol. Proper exhaust is
important for expelling effluents from the curing chamber and ultimately from the work
environment. Use a temperature gun to measure the skin temp.
7.0 CONTROLS
7.1 TOGGLE SWITCH (standard)
DB-120: 20 amp single pole breaker switch.
DB-240, DB-120-200 and EU: 20 amp double pole breaker switch.
This breaker/switch turns the power on and off to the heater. It will trip if an electrical short is
detected. Consult factory if frequent trips occur. (Caution! The plug must be removed before
entering control box or any servicing to the heater head.)
Switch output light.
The red pilot light next to the breaker switch is wired to the output side. When the breaker/switch
is sending power to the heater, the pilot light will illuminate.
(See troubleshooting guide for light diagnostic functions.)
7.2 OPTIONAL CONTROL DIAL
DB-120-HC: 120 volt BiMetal variable control timer
DB-120-200-HC, DB-120-X-EU-HC and DB-240-HC: 240 volt BiMetal variable control timer.
An optional control dial is available for the DB120, DB120-200 and DB240 dryers. This dial
allows the user to adjust the heat from low to high (full power).
The control has positions low-2-3-4-5 and High. The controller turns the power to the heater on
and off to vary the temperature. The higher the number on the controller the longer the on cycle
and shorter the off cycle is. The High position keeps the power on constantly.
Control output light.
The green pilot light next to the controller is wired to the output side of the controller. When the
controller is sending power to the heater, the pilot light will illuminate.
(See troubleshooting guide for light diagnostic functions.)
7.3 BELT SPEED CONTROL
The control takes the AC voltage and converts it to DC voltage and varies it from 0 to 90 volts.
The dial is for reference only. Speed can vary from location to location depending on the input
voltage. You should time the belt and note what dial position gives you desired number of
seconds in the chamber.
7.4 HEATER HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
The crank handle on top of the dryer controls the heater height, which is another way to adjust
the amount of time it takes to cure a garment. The height can be adjusted from 2" to 7" off the
belt. The optimal height is 2.5" off the substrate in most cases, but this can be changed to
whatever setting you desire.
DB120 and DB240 Manual
Page3
7.5 GEAR MOTOR
A 90 Volt DC gear motor is located to the rear of the conveyor. It drives the rear pulley and belt
via a roller #25chain and 25B22 sprockets. A one amp fuse is located on the belt control box to
protect the belt control.
9.0 CONVEYOR
9.1 BELT
The conveyor belt is made of Teflon coated fiberglass. It is joined together with an alligator lace
using a steel pin to connect each side. The belt will not burn under normal conditions but the
dryer should always have the belt moving while the heaters are above 500 degrees. The belt
should remain tracked in the center of each pulley. (See 01-16-004, 005, 006 for installation and
tracking adjustments.)
9.2 ALIGNOR
The alignor is a device for tracking to your belt and keeping it on the pulley. As the belt moves
from side to side the alignor is used for adjustments to keep it centered. The belt does not have to
be perfectly centered on the pully but just not hanging over either edge.
9.3 PULLEYS
The pulleys at either end of the conveyor are made by VASTEX of 41/2" inch tubing with 3/4
inch center shaft. They are mounted on self aligning flange bearing blocks for precision rolling.
A belt lagging material is used on each pulley for better belt grip and aid in the tracking.
10.0 MAINTENANCE
Your VASTEX dryer has few points that need maintaining. The most important first step is to follow
the unpacking and setup instructions. The proper electrical hookup and exhaust duct installation will
insure the most can be achieved from your investment. Turn off power at your disconnect before
entering any part of the machine.
10.1 ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
Electrical connections will loosen in time from heating and cooling. Every three (3) months the
power should be turned off at the external disconnect and all the points of connection should be
inspected and tightened.
10.2 LINT BUILDUP
As with your clothes dryer at home lint will build up where ever air is flowing over garments.
10.2.1 The optional exhaust blower, located on the rear of the machine, and any air paths
leading to the blower should be cleaned every 2-3 months depending on usage. To
perform the cleaning, remove the two black covers on top of the chamber and the blower
box cover, (left side of machine). Remove the lint build up and any other foreign matter
around the air slots and the blower “squirrel” cage.
10.2.2 Every six months the top cover should be removed to clean around the heater and any
other visible debris buildup.
(Note: Restricting the air flow can do damage to electrical components, inhibit your
dryer’s performance and cause a fire.
10.3 MOTOR & ELEVATOR CHAIN
Chain can loosen in time and should be inspected, tightened and lubricated when necessary. The
motor chain is located in the rear of the conveyor. And the elevator chain can be accessed by
removing the lid and baffle on top of your chamber.
(Caution: Do not over tighten chain, damage to bearings may occur.)
10.4 SPARE PARTS
VASTEX stocks parts used on current model machines. Also any older machine can be upgraded
to new style components to keep their controls modern and operating. But having spare parts on
DB120 and DB240 Manual

your shelf can save you overnight shipping costs and the downtime waiting for shipment of parts
in the event of a component failure. The only downside of buying spare parts ahead of time is the
warranty starts on the ship date, not installation date.
