QUARTZ INFRARED HEATING ELEMENTS
A versatile and popular radiant emitter, infrared quartz heating elements provide an instant heat response wherever it’s needed, across a variety of industrial process applications.
Normally favoured and used for industrial processes where rapid heater response and/or zone-controlled heating is required, quartz elements heat up in seconds – far less time than ceramic heaters. This makes them particularly efficient and effective for manufacturing processes such as plastic thermoforming, curing and heater systems with long heater-off cycles.
Operating up to 750°C (1380°F), infrared quartz radiant heater produces wavelengths in the 1.5 – 8-micron spectrum, slightly shorter than ceramic elements. With a standard voltage of 230V, standard wattages range between 150W and 1000W.
Our full range of medium to long-wave, infrared quartz elements – including full, half, quarter, and square elements, together with pillared quartz elements and quartz square tube elements – are CE approved.
Custom quartz heating elements are also an option for our customers. In the past, Ceramicx has worked closely in developing heater geometry required for specific applications.
