Anderson Thermal Now Offering Exceptionally Efficient Cylindrical Infrared Heaters For OEMs

Hawthorne, NJ, February 08, 2012 --( Radiant Round clam shell infrared heaters provide intense, precisely controlled heat at medium wavelength that completely surrounds the wire, cable, or tubing for uniform and efficient heat transfer. These modular infrared heaters utilize clear or opaque quartz tubes in the center with heating elements wrapped around the outer surface of the quartz tube. This combination allows for maximum efficiency and high rates of heat transfer.

This rapid response infrared heater features fast heat up (815°C (1500°F) max) and cool down. Even at high temperatures, insulation keeps the outside skin at 100° for operator safety. This design is suitable for vertical and horizontal mounting. Stacking multiple units permits faster line speeds.

The quartz tube prevents the product from touching the heating elements and is durable enough to withstand the impact of most products that would be processed in this type of heater. Its make-up permits 24 hour operation.

This unit’s design allows for easy operator threading and cleaning. Manufacturing not needing easy access can use other infrared heater designs— specifically the solid and keyhole configurations. Its quartz insulation minimizes heat loss into the work area making them exceptionally efficient. Clam shell heaters are field repairable. Drying, heating, sintering and curing applications can be run on this clam shell design.
