Infrared Heaters

What are infrared heaters?

An infrared heater uses wavelengths of light just outside the visible spectrum at its red end to heat objects.

What are the best applications for infrared heaters?

The best applications for infrared heaters are those that require something to be heated not just a space to be heated. The list below gives some examples.

  • Adhesive Curing
  • Annealing Glass
  • Drying Lacquer
  • Web Drying
  • Power Paint Curing
  • Plastic Thermoforming
  • Plastic Vacuum Forming
  • Drying Ceramic Glazes and Pigments
  • Curing Extruded Plastic Parts
  • Drying Plastics
  • Laminating
  • Foam Curing
  • Silicone Curing
  • Sintering Teflon
  • Mold Heating
  • Drying Remoist Glue
  • Adhesive Activating
  • Heat Setting
  • Vinyl Fusing
  • Drying Paper
  • Drying
  • Laminating
  • Drying dyed/printed fabric
  • Curing latex coatings
  • Bonded/painted/plastic coated components
  • Drying same components
  • Food Warming
  • Baking
  • Drying Printing Inks
  • Drying Waterbase Coatings
  • Pre-Heating
  • Liquid Paint Curing
  • Annealing Plastics
  • Resin Curing
  • Neoprene Curing

Why are Infrareds better?

  • Precise temperature control incorporates zoning and closed loop feedback for product quality
  • Intense infrared heat puts maximum energy where it's needed
  • Process temperature reached quickly on line startups
  • Rapid cool-down on line stops prevents product damage
  • High energy efficiency saves power and fuel costs
  • Small footprint consumes minimal plant floor space
  • Infrared combined with ambient air and hot air for increased drying speeds
