Carbon Infrared HeatersHigh heating efficiency and rapid cool down make the mediumwave infrared carbon heater from Heraeus the only medium-wave heater to offer response times comparable to shortwave lamps. Suitable for all medium-wave applications, this heater also allows the user to match temperatures to the optimal absorption wavelength for each application. Together, these features eliminate overheating and contamination of sensitive substrates, a critical consideration for many applications.
A great deal of medium wave radiation is absorbed in water, solvents and plastics and converted into heat. This allows significant benefits. For example, carbon heaters are very effective for drying of printing inks; because the radiation acts more intensively on the ink, there is less stress on the paper. The high power heater increases print drying speed and reduces drying time. For plastics and glass applications, efficient Heraeus medium wave technology heats in a targeted manner, with less heating of the surrounding environment.
Heraeus Carbon IR heaters have a unique filament design that combines the versatile medium-wave spectral emission with very short reaction times of just seconds. They are made with high-quality quartz tubes and gold reflectors for high efficiency. The unique Heraeus "Figure 8" Twin Tube design gives Heraeus carbon lamps higher power densities and good mechanical stability. Round tube designs are also available.
Heraeus Carbon IR heaters are also available as complete IR systems.
Efficiency: Radiation Intensity and Absorption
The Carbon Twin HeaterThe Carbon Twin heater from Heraeus Noblelight offers maximum power density -- twice that of conventional twin tube heaters. It's perfect for a vast array of applications including:
Common to both types of heaters is the medium wave spectrum. Many materials are especially receptive to infrared waves from this region of the light spectrum. The use of infrared heaters therefore contributes to the accelerated drying of water and other solvents and to economical processing of plastics and glass.
Heraeus' proven twin tube design brings high stability to the carbon twin, as well as significantly increasing radiation density. What's more, these heaters offer the possibility of manufacture in a range of models. These heaters can be built for connection to conventional standard power supplies.
The carbon heater technology contributes to the high power density of the carbon twin. Carbon heaters have twice the maximum power density of conventional medium wave twin tube heaters. In addition, carbon heaters have fast heat-up and cool-down times and can be switched on and off in seconds.
