Featured Infrared Application

Reducing Residual Moisture in Cotton Tissue A manufacturer of fashion tissue employs a carbon infrared heating system to reduce moisture from 7% to 1% in their product. A double-sided heating system is used, with three-zone power control for maximum flexibility. Homogeneous drying is achieved, even with a line speed of 100 meters per minute. The IR system did not require changes to the machine's configuration, and the resulting product is colorfast and free of unwanted color gradations.

What's more, the infrared heater has practical, effective and efficient uses in many processes throughout industry. Infra-red can be used to heat: metal, plastic, textiles, rubber, glass and wood are a few of the materials that can benefit from infared heaters. Drying with IR can reduce moisture and help dry coatings. The curing process uses infrared quartz heaters for plastic, metal, glass, ceramics and other materials. Adhesives can be activated using infrared. And specialized uses like ultrapure water and vacuum often benefit from a Heraeus infrared heater.

IR technology is often ideal when applied to processes like activating, curing, drying, fixation, foaming, glueing, laminating, melting, preheating, shrinking, soldering, sterilizing and tempering. That's merely a partial list; if your application isn't among these, the applications experts at Heraeus Noblelight can still work with you to develop a solution to your process challenges.

Primer: The Basics of IR

  • Heat transfer is simple -- it requires no contact with the material and no intermediate medium such as air or water.
  • IR heaters transmit high power -- even irregularly-shaped items heat in seconds.
  • The heating process fits in easily with the manufacturing process -- by appropriate choice of heater or heater module, an infrared heater can match the process speed.
Quartz glass IR lamps provide a superior alternative to other heating sources (such as steam, hot air, ceramic emitters, gas or metal heaters) because infrared has the unique ability to transfer large amounts of energy (heat) quickly, and IR lamps can precisely target that heat while specifically matching the needs of the process.

All these advantages can add up to reduced energy consumption, higher line speed/throughput, smaller footprint and overall enhanced heating performance.
