Short Wave Single Tube NIR

Short Wave Single Tube NIR

The economical and powerful shortwave single tube NIR heaters from Heraeus are suited for situations requiring high temperatures in the shortest possible time. And because these Heraeus NIR lamps are also manufactured in standard configuration designs, matching the right heater to your application is a snap.

Performance Advantages

  • High radiation density in a small area
  • Optimized reflection thanks to back-mounted gold reflector: increasing output and saving energy
  • Practically no heating-up and cooling-down times
  • Economical
  • Heated lengths up to 40"
  • Stock, Custom and OEM sizes
  • High service life
  • High power densities

Economical and Powerful Heaters

Heraeus NIR lamps produce heat in the same way that a light bulb produces light. Featuring standard heater configuration designs, they can be easily interchanged. Equipped with the original Heraeus gold reflector, the heaters operate at a significantly higher efficiency than conventional lamps.

Spectral radiation distribution of an IR heater

Heraeus NIR Heaters with Gold Reflector

Without reflector, heaters radiate 50% of the infrared radiation to the rear and 50% forward. Consequently, only 50% of the potential radiation is available to heat a surface. With white reflectors about 72% is available. With the Heraeus Gold reflector 95% of the available radiation is directed at the workpiece surface.
