Sections with a reflector integral to the heat source disperse infrared energy across a 180 degree pattern.
Sections with a parabolic reflector deliver infrared
energy across a 130 degree pattern with the reflected
infrared in a tighter 65 degree pattern. More energy can
be delivered to the product with the parabolic shape.
! Three different reflector widths are available: 5 ½", 11", and
16 ½" wide parabolic reflectors. This allows the customer to
match the power density of the equipment (watts per square
inch) to the application.
Sections are offered in three different widths: 5 ½", 11" and
16 ½". The 11" wide sections can be purchased with one
11" reflector or two 5 ½" wide reflectors. The 16 ½" wide
section can be purchased with one 16 ½" reflector or three
5 ½" wide reflectors.
A variety of lengths are offered:
11", 16", 22", 31", 44", 55", and 66".
These length are available in all section widths.
Sections are designed so they can be bolted
together side by side or end to end. This makes the
fabrication of large heat banks possible.
! Parabolic reflectors are formed from gold anodized aluminum.
These reflectors are approximately 85% efficient when new.
A normal maintenance schedule using non-abrasive liquid
cleaners will keep the reflectors at a high degree of
For high temperature applications, gold porcelain
reflectors (24K gold fired onto a porcelain coated steel
reflector) are recommended.
Quartz lamps, quartz tubes, and metal sheath rods can
be used in the 900 series modular sections.
Modular sections use a sturdy ceramic SO9
socket. The socket provides an easy positive means for
connecting the heat source leads.
Heat sources can be wired in series, parallel or in any
combination to suit process and control requirements.
