The high energy of an infrared heater is used for reliable drying, curing or heating processes. The direct IR energy from a radiant heater will remove moisture, cure paint and heat plastics. Types of IR heaters include: ceramic, quartz lamp/tube, panel, and metal sheath. They deliver electromagnetic infrared radiation in short, medium or long wavelengths and offer 1300-1600° F capabilities. Heat-up times vary by heater type. Materials, such as plastics, organic substances and water, absorb infrared energy with greater efficiency than other materials used in industrial processing. Infrared heating equipment reaches a desired operating temperature rapidly for enhanced efficiency. Since radiant energy heats the product directly, without a heat transfer intermediary (such as air), radiant heating can yield faster response times than traditional convection heating.
Industrial Infrared Heaters and High Efficiency
We help industry work efficiently and economically. Our industrial infrared heaters and sensors support balanced, direct surface heating. Through the process of conduction, radiant heat will reach a desired temperature and move through the product with high efficiency. Infrared heat sensors can control heating by sensing the targeted product’s temperature. Contact Hi-Watt if you have additional questions concerning efficient infrared heating for industrial applications.
