This report measures the differences in emitted heat flux between hollow and plain elements. Of particular interest is the effect of a reflector placed at the rear of the elements on the emitted infrared output.
Our white papers are a selection of authoritative guides written by our own Ceramicx infrared heat experts commenting on a range of infrared heat technology subjects and technical experiments. This free PDF resource library aims to give you in-depth reference material, analysis, and explanatory information to help you understand any infrared technology issues.
If you’d like to request independent testing of your own materials to be compiled into a white paper report by us, please contact us on [email protected].
A Comparison of The Use of Convectional Heating and Infra-Red Heating in Out of Autoclave Curing of Carbon Fibre Composites
This paper describes the systematic investigation into the comparisons between a traditional convection oven and a novel infrared (IR) heating set-up when applied to the curing of an out of autoclave carbon fibre / epoxy laminate.
AUTHOR DATE CREATED VERSION DOCUMENT NUMBER Conor Newman 18 July 2018 V1.1 CCII-00129 Introduction A company is interested in heating
This report describes a series of experiments on Quartz cassettes in which Stainless Steel and Aluminised steel reflector materials were compared. Tests were performed with reflectors and without reflectors.
To experience infrared heating at first hand is to know that there is a real and qualitative difference in kind between it and other heat sources.
