Model VBH-1 Versatile Bed Heater

Versatility for Challenging Applications

This versatile and integrated modular bed heater accommodates a wide variety of difficult-to-process heat-shrink tubing applications. With an adjustable upper heating chamber, the bed heater separation can be adjusted from 37mm [1.5 in] to a 150mm [6 in] gap enabling the unit to process heat-shrinkable tubing products up to 127mm [5 in] in diameter and infinite length. The upper and lower chambers are provided with adjustable heat shields to maximize oven heating efficiency. Its infrared energy source is well-suited for efficient processing of either single wall or adhesive-lined tubing. Heat output and drive speed can be controlled to accommodate a wide variety of products and substrates. The unit includes a transporter base and motorized wheels, which are directed through an aluminum track.
