Utilize tungsten filaments to produce the most
efficient heat transfer.
Linear quartz glass construction allows for high
temperatures and quick response time.
Lamp wattages available from 300 to 5800 Watts.
Lamp sizes available from 8 inches to 61 inches.
Several types available in 120 Volt; however, most IR
lamps operate on high voltage of 240+ Volts.
Variations of internal reflectors and gold coating enhance
and improve the basic IR lamp if external reflector
assemblies are not used.
Many types of quartz lamps in various sizes may be used
for more compact applications and several reflector
types are available for point source radiation.
Longer wavelengths are produced by quartz heaters using a
nichrome wire as a heater source.
Have advantage of not operating in an inert atmosphere or
vacuum as short wave lamps do, and may be manufactured in many
different size, wattage, and voltage variations to accommodate
the heating equipment.
Available on a custom basis for short runs with 15 different
standard base types.
Quartz heaters, while not as efficient as short wave lamps,
still operate at up to 80% efficiency.
