General Description:
Infrared heaters encompass a wide variety of designs with emitters of pre-fired refractory shapes, ported ceramic plates, metal and ceramic fiber mats and porous ceramic boards. Heaters are available either as standard-sized modules, usually 6" or 12" long, for assembly onto supply manifolds to suit customer requirements, or as large single panels built to order. Most emitters are essentially flat panels, but some manufacturers offer cylindrical burners or custom shapes.

Principal Applications: Atmosphere Generators, Glass Melter Forehearths, and High Temperature Kilns & Calciners
