Natural Gas: Gas Impingement Heaters

The first infrared heater was an impingement type. Traditionally referred to as the workhorse of IR heating, the heater operates when gas and air combine and produce a flame, heating the tile to incandescence.

Heaters vary but most come in line or cup shapes.

How It Works:

  1. Flame and combustion gases are forced across the surface of a cup, cone, or bell-shaped refractory tile
  2. Tile is heated to high temperatures
  3. The tile becomes the radiator emitter
  4. Refractory walls are also potentially heated becoming an emitter

Applications: Paper Drying, Paints & Coatings, Textiles
