Industrial Burners: Catalytic Panel Heaters

Gas-Air Mixing Type: Catalytic
Options Available:

Performance Capabilities:
Output Range: Up to 7500 Btu/hr-sq ft.
Maximum Furnace Temperature: 500°F
Turndown Ratio: Up to 2 to 1

General Description:
Catalytic heaters are not burners because they create no flames. Raw gas enters the rear of the panel assembly and passes out through a porous pad on the front of the heater, where it meets atmospheric air and reacts with it, aided by a precious metal catalyst on the pad. Although the heat release pattern is low intensity compared to infrared burners, it is very uniform and well suited to heating thin, delicate materials which might be harmed by localized overheating.

Principal Applications: Ink & Adhesive Drying, Paint, Powder Coating & Varnish Curing, Plastics Thermoforming and Shrink Packaging
