Medium Wave Quartz Infrared Heaters

Medium Wave Quartz Infrared Heaters are excellent for surface heating and for drying coatings paint, dyes, lacquers, adhesives and in the processing of plastic sheet and films. They are available in Clear or Opaque Quartz Tube with gold or ceramic reflective coatings that focus the emitted energy onto the substrate.

The filament temperature of a medium wave emitter is from 850°F and 2150°F (454°C - 1177°C).  The majority of energy generated by the medium wave lamps is in the range of the electromagnetic spectrum between 2-4 microns.

Medium wave emissions do not penetrate as deep into substrates as shortwave.  The emissions are readily absorbed by water films, plastics and many solvents.

Medium Wave Quartz Infrared Heaters are slower in response to changes in process requirement as compared to the short-wavelength lamps and are slower to heat up and cool down.

Because of their long life, medium wave quartz infrared heaters perform extremely well in continuous processes.  Medium wave infrared heaters are sold as individual heat sources or wired together in multiple emitter cassettes also known as IR Modules. The Standard End Connection in the Medium Wave Quartz Infrared Heater is the Screw Connection with Ceramic Cap to Protect the Terminals.

Medium wave Quartz Infrared Heaters consist of a quartz tube with a nickel chromium alloy coiled filament.  Anupam's medium-wave quartz infrared heaters typically come in Diameters of 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm, 15 mm for Single Tube configurations or with 11 x 23 mm & 15 x 33 mm for Twin Tube configurations. The Lengths of the Medium Wave Quartz Infrared Heaters can vary from 300 mm to 1500 mm as per customers design and specifications. Standard medium wave emitters are not filled with any gases and are not sealed.

The Medium Wave Quartz Infrared Heaters are to be mounted in Horizontal Position only. Mounting support should be located on Non Heating ends.

Short wave quartz infrared heaters are used in various industrial applications. It contains tungsten filament, helically wound, encased in quartz envelope. Tungsten as resistive element is capable of generating temperature in excess of 2750° C. Its response time is very rapid in 1 second it emits over 90% of IR energy. It is by products free & pollution free. Heat focus is very accurate due to compact and narrow diameter of IR tubes. Short wave IR element has maximum heating rate of 200W/inch.

The quartz envelope allows transmission of IR energy and protecting the filament from convective cooling and corrosion. Addition of small percentage of halogen gas in it not only increases life of emitter but also protects blackening of tube and depreciation on infrared energy. The rated life of short wave infrared heater is around 5000 Hrs
