A new BigRed 4D-54 infrared conveyor tunnel oven from Vastex Industrial boosts temperatures to over 300°F (149°C) within the first several inches of conveyor travel, and maintains at-cure temperatures of up to 900° (482°C).

It is equipped with a 54-inch (137 cm) wide conveyor belt, dual heating zones and four height-adjustable infrared heaters capable of heating film, sheet, parts and metal products uniformly from edge to edge, at high rates.

An air flow mapping system draws ‘make-up’ air into the chamber’s double-walled shell through filtered inlets along opposite exterior sides serving to cool the outer shell for safety, while preheating incoming air.

The six-inch (15.3 cm) diameter exhaust fan outlet can rotate 360 degrees for easy connection to ductwork, and the control box can be located on the right (standard) or left side of the chamber.


Exhaust flow sensors with warning lights alert operators to a clogged exhaust line, clogged filter or blower failure. Other safety features include a light tower to monitor oven status, and a ‘cool down mode’ for powering down.

With a total of 22,800 watts, it is wired for 240V as standard, and available in 3-phase, 208, 380 and 480 voltages.
