The IR Medium Wave emitters are particularly suitable for the fast heating of surface parts or thin thickness materials. Plastic, water and other solvents absorb particularly well the radiation at this wavelength.
The main characteristics of IR Medium Wave emitters are:
Twin tube standard section:18 x 9 mm – 22 x10 mm – 33 x16 mm
Radiation peak in the range of 2,2 – 3,2µm
35 W/cm maximum density of nominal power(to be verified in prototype phase)
60 kW/m2 maximum surface power density
Filament Response time to Switch on /off between 30 and 70 seconds
Long lifetime of the emitter
Horizontal working position but on request there is also the possibility to design vertical working emitters
Possibility to apply a reflector directly on the quartz tube, to better convey and focus all the energy emitted on the material
Helios Quartz can design the right IR emitter with the peak radiation wavelength matching the optimal absorption curve of the material to be heated; this allows you to obtain the most efficient heating process with less energy consumption
Helios Quartz Technical Department can realize twin tube IR emitters with different filament configuration. This allows an extraordinary flexibility both in term of heated area modularity and cables position. In the picture below there are represented some of the most common filament configuration.
Helios Quartz can also provide IR Medium Wave Single tube emitters in the following configurations:
