Have any of you ever taken the apron off of a Besler print dryer, washed it and reinstalled it? I know from experience that they can shrink to the point where they cannot be reinstalled. Better yet would be a source for a new one....Thank You.

Not a Beseler, but various others. Wash in cold water, and put it back on the print dryer damp.

Thank you for your reply. Question? How long do you have after washing to get the apron back on before it shrinks too much? This happened to me when I washed first one. Fortunately I had a new spare which is the one I would like to wash now. At present I am using screens to dry prints on but would like to get the Beseler working again. Thanks again.......Regards!

Take it out of the washer and put it on the dryer ASAP. And turn the heat way, way down at the start.

New belt? Contact B&H it's likely the one for the Arkay dryers will work but it's a lot of money and not returnable.

Post a picture. Omega had Pako build their dryer. Pretty sure Beseler did too. Pako will have belts made to order if it's one they made. Minimum order is 3 belts. Will set you back over $300. You can wet the original belt and get it back on . I love drum dryers.

Pako is now Pakor still in Minnesota. Great customer service.
