Short Wave Twin Tube

Short wave infrared heaters

Short wave infrared radiation has high heating power. Short wave lamps are particularly well-suited for processes that require quick start-up and shut-off, since they achieve their full operating efficiency within seconds. Heraeus Noblelight has designed infrared heaters in the highly stable and application-proven twin tube format.

Twin tube lamps are notable for their high radiation density and high power intensity. A gold reflector (using Heraeus's patented "Figure 8" technology), fitted directly to the emitter, directs the infrared radiation onto the object to be heated. The result exhibits greatly improved efficiency compared to plate reflectors.
