Intelligent planning of plants for industrial processes – infrared systems from a single source

Curing of powder coating, drying of wet coating, welding of plastics – innumerable industrial production processes require heat. Rapid heating and low space requirements make infrared systems attractive as sources of heat. However, adjustment to the product and the process require a well thought-out plant concept.

Intelligent planning of plants

Efficient and well-controllable infrared emitters are the core of any plant. We make sure you optimise your process.

Some application examples:

Infrared oven reflow process

Wilms builds electroplating plants worldwide for tin-coating of steel and nonferrous sheet. Heraeus infrared ovens have been used in the reflow plant for a longer time. The Wilms project owners were looking for options to save energy in the process and for energy-efficient alternatives. After talking to Heraeus application specialists, a solution was soon found: the innovative MAX infrared ovens.

Infrared preheating glass bottles

When bottles are filled, there is a high risk of the glass bursting or splintering due to the thermal shock, especially if the temperature difference between liquid and glass exceeds 42°C. A solution was a four metres long infrared oven with a nominal output of 109.2 kW that heats the empty bottles. The oven has three zones and in the third, a PID controller ensures that the bottles have the correct temperature for filling.
