Which Heater 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 outlet 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.
