Ahiba IR – state-of-the-art, air-cooled infrared dyeing unit. Supports a wide range of dyeing and testing requirements at an affordable price.

 

The systems should be installed on a sturdy table or benchtop in a laboratory environment with temperature and humidity conditions:

  • 5°-31°C with <80% rH
  • 31°- 40°C with <50% rH
  • Electrical supply: 230 V, 50/60 Hz Single phase, 3 wire (line, neutral, and earth ground) tolerance of <+/-10%.
  • Heating power: 3000 W
  • Total power: 3850 W
  • If the mains supply is prone to interruptions and failures a UPS is recommended.
  • The unit is air cooled, ensure at least 12” clearance behind unit for air exhaust

Key features

World class repeatibility

  • State-of-the-art microprocessor control and sophisticated algorithms ensure unrivalled temperature regulation.
  • Every step of your process is monitored and managed at the highest level of accuracy.
  • Strict attention to detail and design guarantees the safety of operators, delivering a low environmental impact machine.

Best-in-class productivity

  • Operator error is essentially impossible – intuitive multi-language user interface easily recalls up to 99 locally stored programs. Programming flexibility allows quick programming to match production processes.
  • Up to 20 dyeing positions in the dyeing unit ensure that a large number of samples can be dyed accurately. Dosing options are available for swift addition of liquid or powder auxiliaries during the dyeing process.

Beaker and substrate flexibility

  • Easily match laboratory and production workflow processes with specially designed workflow flexibility.
  • Multiple beaker sizes and dual agitation methods expand the unit’s flexibility, ensuring Datacolor AHIBA can meet the widest range of textile dyeing applications.

Improved energy efficiency

  • High efficiency infrared lamps, circulation fans, and a sealed dyeing compartment guarantee that the radiant temperature transfer from chamber to beaker is optimized. Smart industrial design and modern materials reduce heat loss from the dyeing chamber, making the Datacolor AHIBA one of the lowest powered units on the market. Achieve heating and cooling gradients comparable to much higher powered units.
