ABOUT INFRARED LAMPS PRODUCTS

Infrared has a wavelength just greater than that of the red end on the visible light spectrum but less than that of microwaves, and has a wavelength from about 800 nm to 1 mm. Infrared is used for heating, drying, baking, melting, shaping/moulding, activation or bonding.

INFRARED EMITTERS OFFER INTELLIGENT HEAT WITH THE FOLLOWING ADVANTAGES

• Infrared Emitters have short switch-on and switch-off response times
• Extreme accuracy in temperature control is possible when using Infra Red
• Infrared heaters can heat precisely where its required
• Infrared Emitters can be tailor made to client's requirements
• Infrared Emitters can be adjusted precisely to the material properties
• Infrared heating technology saves energy and increases the process speed

 

INFRARED EMITTER PRODUCTS

The Infrared Process Technology Division of Heraeus Noblelight develops and manufactures Infrared Emitters and systems for industrial thermal processes. For more than 50 years, the focus has been on the specific requirements of the application. Based on the experience gained from more than 3,000 different thermal processes we can precisely adjust our Emitters to your requirements with regards to spectrum, power, length and shape.

EMISSION SPECTRA OF INFRARED LAMPS

WAVELENGTH RANGES OF DIFFERENT EMITTER TYPES

The wavelength of an Infrared Emitter has a major influence on the efficiency of a thermal process. The better the emitted wavelength fits the absorption spectrum of the material to be heated, the more efficient the process. For instance, water absorbs best at about 3000 nm. Therefore, medium-wave and Carbon Infrared (CIR) Emitters are optimal to heat water and water-based coatings. The main emission of these emitters lies exactly within the range of the main absorption of water. Another important Emitter parameter is power, measured in W/cm (Emitter length) or W/cm2 (heated surface). Due to the higher temperatures of the heating filaments, the power density of short-wave or Halogen Emitters is in most cases higher than that of medium-wave Infrared Emitters. When selecting an Infrared Emitter for an industrial process, wavelength and power are among the most important parameters that are taken into account.
