Quick-heating infrared chamber heater

A new infrared heater is designed to provide a clean and efficient heat source without contacting the product being heated. The ChamberIR Model 4069 heats products in continuous process for applications including curing extruded silicone tubing and re-glossing plastic tubing. The heater is available in lengths of 10, 16, 25, and 38 inches, and the infrared energy emitted from the heater can be adjusted to match the heating requirements of a variety of applications. The T3 quartz halogen lamps are said to reach 90% of full operating temperature within 3 seconds of a cold start, which is reportedly 10 times faster than convection or hot wall radiant systems. After the power supply is disconnected, the radiant energy is said to dissipate to 10% in 5 seconds. This minimizes time wasted on start-ups or waiting before maintenance can be performed. When the heater is combined with the power control option, the complete system allows the end user to easily install both the heater and control to allow the system to be put to use quickly.
