Carbon infrared emitter CIR®

Heraeus carbon infrared emitters CIR® feature a unique design of the heating filament that combines the efficient radiation with very short response times in the seconds range. The unique twin-tube layout of the Heraeus carbon emitters (the "Golden 8") gives them higher radiation density and improved mechanical stability. Carbon infrared emitters are also available as round tube.
Heraeus carbon IR emitters can be manufactured as complete IR systems.

Your advantages

  • High-quality quartz glass for good transmission and thermal stability
  • Carbon heating filament with very short response time
  • Robust ceramic lamp base
  • Gold reflector for directed radiation and high efficiency
  • Twin quartz tube (the "Golden 8") for high stability and double power, available with different lengths
