Heraeus carbon infrared emitters CIR® feature a unique design of the heating filament that combines the effective medium-wave radiation with very short response times in the seconds range. The unique twin tube design of the Heraeus infrared emitter (the "Golden 8") provides higher radiation density and improved mechanical stability. Carbon infrared heaters are also available as round tubes.


Heraeus carbon IR heaters can be built as complete IR systems.

Carbon Infrared Emitter features:

  • High-quality quartz glass for good transmission and thermal stability
  • Carbon heating element with very short response time
  • Robust ceramic lamp base
  • Gold reflector for directed radiation and high efficiency
  • Twin quartz tube (the "Golden 8") for high stability and double power, available in various lengths
