Which flash dryer is right for you?
Step One: Identify the power source you have available, 120V or 240V. Keep in mind that a typical household has a 120V oulet rated at 15 amps.
*Check with your electrician if you have questions about your power lines and power outlets.
Step Two: Identify the size of your platen. Typical sizes are 14", 16", and 20."
Step Three: Choose a nominal element size (hot face) at least 2" larger than your platen. This will best assure you can flash your largest image.
Step Four: Decide how fast you want to flash your impressions. A higher wattage heater has more power, meaning that it will get hotter and flash faster.
Finally: Choose any accessories for the heater, such as stands, heat controls, and auto/manual swing devices.
