Drytronic is a generator of different infrared wavelengths with an extremely broad spectrum that employs an exothermic catalytic chemical reaction to combine hydrogen and oxygen using natural gas or LPG. Since the catalytic chemical reaction takes place in the total absence of flames, there is no risk of fire or explosion, even if the panel were to accidentally come into contact with flammable liquids or gases. The Drytronic panel is therefore ATEX certified and approved for use in environments where explosive mixtures may be present, such as spray booths.
The chemical reaction takes place because the catalyst inside the lamp breaks the gas molecule’s chemical bonds separating the hydrogen from the carbon. On the outer surface, the hydrogen coming out of the lamp is oxidized with oxygen thus creating flameless energy. And since there is no combustion, the carbon is released into the air in the form of carbon dioxide. The Drytronic generator emits a specific and selective spectrum of electromagnetic waves that release more than 85% of the energy contained inside the paint molecule. The patented Wave Length Control System (WLC) allows for the management of the various wavelengths based on the paint’s brand and type.
The Drytronic wave spectrum penetrates directly into the paint molecule, instantly drying it: for example, it takes as little as fifty seconds of exposure to dry clear lacquer. The Drytronic unit can be used to dry various paints, materials and thicknesses, with almost no differences in terms of drying time and quality. The Drytronic lamp emits its radiation with a cone of fifty degrees, which significantly amplifies the exposure area and provides for two main benefits: a slower and more uniform increase in paint temperature, in order to prevent defects, as well as the proper drying of any particular angles or undercut curves. The Drytronic technology is entirely safe for human health, with absolutely no side effects resulting even from prolonged exposure. Furthermore, there are no risks posed to the eyes, since the radiation is in a wave spectrum that is entirely invisible to the human eye itself.
