Short-wave Infra-red Industrial Process Heating
Short-wave infra-red (radiant) heating is simple, energy efficient and flexible. The product is heated directly by energy radiated from a high temperature emitter without the need to heat up large amounts of air.
This brings many benefits:
Short-wave infra-red is provided by quartz-halogen lamps with fine tungsten filaments at a temperature of around 2500°C. The many benefits that can be enjoyed by using short-wave infra-red include:
Very fast thermal response similar to a light bulb, allowing energy control via product detectors.
The radiant infra-red heats the product directly without the need to heat up large amounts of air.
Simple, energy efficient and flexible.
Reduces energy costs
Our Short-wave range of infra-red heaters can be used for a variety of applications:
Very rapid pre-heating of castings and metal components
Bonding using thermoplastic and thermosetting materials
Rapid curing of powder coatings
Forced curing of resins
Forced drying of metal components
Rapid curing of sealant
