Industries Using IRToday's industries can enjoy significant savings in cost and efficiency through use of IR heat from Heraeus Noblelight. Below are just a few of the industries that put infrared heaters and quartz heaters to effective use.
Featured Infrared ApplicationA compressor manufacturer's process required preheating of the compressors. Their previous means of doing this -- a tunnel oven -- was effective, but higher efficiency was desired. Heraeus Noblelight supplied a solution in the form of a fast mediumwave infrared oven. The new system allows semiautomatic power control via potentiometers. Compressors are detected at the entrance of the oven, so the heaters turn on only when compressors are present. The quick on/off characteristics of the fast mediumwave heaters makes this possible, increasing efficiency and line speed.
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.
