Industrial Infrared Heaters

industrial infrared heaters

The high energy of an electric infrared heater or radiant tube heater is used for reliable drying, curing or heating processes. The direct IR energy from a radiant tube heater will remove moisture, cure paint and heat plastics.

Types of electric infrared heaters and radiant tube heaters include: ceramic, quartz lamp/tube, panel, and metal sheath. These industrial electric heaters 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 the radiant energy from the radiant tube heater heats the product directly, without a heat transfer intermediary (such as air), electric infrared heaters can yield faster response times than traditional convection heating.

High Efficiency Industrial Electric Heaters

We help industry work efficiently and economically. Our industrial electric 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 industrial heaters if you have additional questions concerning efficient radiant tube heaters and heating for industrial applications.

Infrared Radiant Heaters with Precision Control

Valuable radiant heating solutions begin with infrared radiant heaters from leading manufacturers, including Watlow. This trusted manufacturer’s RayMax radiant panel heaters generate electromagnetic waves that are absorbed and converted to heat through high efficiency designs.

Uniform heating is achieved with industrial electric heaters that are precisely controlled. With stainless steel construction, they can offer maximum operating temperatures of up to 2000°F (1095°C). Radiant panel heaters meet an array of industrial demands and can be customized to exact temperature and watt density requirements.

The Hi-Watt Advantage

Find the precise industrial heater design you need to restore your industrial process or improve your production line. At Hi-Watt, we specialize in leading electric infrared heaters to provide efficient heat for a variety of uses. Compare these basic heater types to discover the most effective solution for your heating needs.

Quartz Infrared Heaters

Choose a quartz infrared heater for instantaneous heating and short-to-medium electromagnetic waves. Quartz heaters use short wavelengths to provide rapid, intense heat in a controlled environment. If you need a small heater that is capable of heating up to 1,600 degrees Fahrenheit, quarts is the option for you.

As the hottest infrared heater design, quartz heaters are best when used in high-heat applications. They aren’t suitable for slow, long-term heating options. Choose either a quartz lamp or tube and compare single or twin tube options to find the ideal heating solution.

Ceramic Infrared Heaters

Ceramic heating comes in two basic options: ceramic infrared heaters and ceramic radiant heat panels. Choose ceramic if you need affordable, broad heating options for heating an entire room or small area. Like other electric heating solutions, ceramic infrared heaters don’t require any pipes, ductwork or ventilation.

Compared to quartz heaters, ceramic heaters are a far more affordable alternative. It can take up to five minutes for your ceramic heater to heat up to full temperature, but they are easy to replace and inexpensive options for many air heating needs.

Metal Sheathed Infrared Heaters

For rugged heating requirements, choose metal sheathed infrared heaters. Metal sheathing protects your heating element from damage as it heats up the surrounding air or liquid.

Just like ceramic, metal sheathed heaters require additional time to heat up to full temperature, but they are more protected from damage or interference than other heating options.

Metal sheathed heaters are ideal for submerged heating systems or for heating high-traffic rooms and work areas. Once it heats up to its full temperature, metal sheathed heaters are effective at heating a room or a liquid to most temperature requirements. A stainless steel sheathed heater can reach face temperatures of up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

A metal sheathed radiant panel heater can include a protective coat to avoid corrosion or other contamination. This feature is essential for submersible heating applications.

If you require radiant heat, a metal sheath protects your heater from accidental damage from flying debris or transporting objects around your facility. We’ll work with you to identify the exact size and wattage specifications for your heating application.

Custom Heating Solutions

If you don’t see an electric heater option that fits your specifications, ask about custom heater designs. Our team at Hi-Watt can fabricate heaters using a range of materials and expert designs. Choose a carbon steel, aluminum or stainless steel design and work with our team to create a submersible or radiant heater for your exact industrial needs.

A custom heater offers the same rugged dependability and extended service life of our name-brand heaters. Because your custom heater is manufactured by our team, we can easily provide any maintenance or emergency repair needs with affordable parts.

Custom heating designs are flexible enough to handle your particular industrial need. Our electric infrared heaters work with a range of industries and provide reliable, consistent heat for heating rooms or for use with industrial applications. Don’t settle for generic, expensive heating systems, but invest in a heater tailored to your company and your industrial process.
