Custom Infrared Panel Heaters

Custom Infrared Panel HeatersInfrared panel heaters are custom built heaters operating primarily in the long wave range. The basic construction consists of a resistance coil embedded into a ceramic fibre board which is then located behind an emitting surface of either anodised aluminium or glass ceramic. This is then placed inside a 75mm high aluminised steel housing which normally contains 50mm of thermal insulation to reduce heat loss through the rear of the unit.

Panel heaters can be used in thermoforming ovens and for various curing and drying applications. The panel heater design and construction makes it a very robust and efficient heater with operating life often in excess of 20,000 hours in many applications (depending on operating temperature and environment). Standard power density is 1.5-2.3 W/cm² (10-15 W/in²). Higher power densities available on request.

Standard options

  • Emitting surface
  • Glass ceramic face - very good radiant efficiency, high percentage transmission of radiant output in medium to short wave range, surface can be easily cleaned.

    Anodised aluminium face - good radiant efficiency, very robust, surface sheet can be easily cleaned or replaced if damaged by molten material.

  • Electrical terminations:
  • Open 2P terminal block

    Terminal block with cover

    M6 or 1/4" threaded stud

  • Type K thermocouple with fixed high temperature socket and removable plug
  • Fixing studs: M5/M6/M8/0.25" x 25mm long
  • Other options available on request.
