Convection curing systems utilize about 50% of the oven length to raise the part to temperature leaving little time to complete a cure. Casso-Solar Technologies infrared brings the part to temperature in 1/10th the time of a convection system, allowing for more time at temperature to cure or to increase production.
Since infrared does not require air to transfer the energy to the product, different colored powder coated parts can be run, one after another, without cross contamination. Powder is gelled before reaching the convection portion of the system.
Liquid - both water and solvent based plus powder, can be safely processed. Combination air and infrared prevents solvent popping and other defects Systems can be inserted into entry vestibules to save on floor space.

For solvent applications, plenums introduce clean air into the system between columns of heaters, maintaining a safe dilution of the evaporated solvent. Solvent laden air is exhausted from the top of the chamber
