M&R bills its Fusion R as the company’s most affordable 36-in. (914-mm) dryer. It features thermal insulation is to help prevent heat escape, and it’s equipped with height-adjustable infrared panels and a DC motor that drives a Teflon-coated fiberglass conveyor belt. Process and set temperatures are controlled digitally, and a fuzzy logic controller ensures temperature consistency. The controller responds to ambient temperature changes and dryer-load conditions while keeping chamber heat within 1° of target temperature at the thermocouple. Fusion R also features adjustable entry and exit openings and crowned rollers for positive belt tracking. An automatic shutdown sequence keeps the blower and belt running until the chamber has cooled. Fusion R dryers are available with 6- and 10-ft (1.8 and 3.0-m) chamber lengths.
