Ceramic Infrared Heating Elements
As one of the most popular infrared radiant emitters on the market, ceramic heater elements can be applied in a diverse range of industrial and engineering processes. With typical heat applications including thermoforming, packaging, and annealing as well as being used as heaters for paint curing, printing, and drying, these robust ceramic heaters provide long-wave infrared radiation that’s both effective and efficient.
Each ceramic infrared heater element operates up to 750°C (1382°F) producing infrared wavelengths in the 2 – 10 micron range. Standard voltage is 230V and standard wattages range between 60W and 1000W.
Our trough-style elements produce a concentrated output which disperses with distance, making it better suited to emitters positioned further from the target. Hollow style elements produce a uniform output better suited to emitters positioned closer to the target material.
Our range of long-wave, infrared ceramic elements are CE marked with UL approval for full quality assurance and compliance.
They are also used very effectively in infrared outdoor heaters and infrared saunas. Ceramic elements produced by Ceramicx include ceramic trough elements, ceramic hollow elements, ceramic flat elements, and ceramic infrared bulbs.
Ceramic elements operate in the temperature of 300°C to 700°C (572°F – 1292°F) producing infrared wavelengths in the 2 – 10 micron range. Most plastics and many other materials absorb infrared best in this range, which makes the ceramic heater the most popular infrared radiant emitter on the market. A range of aluminium clad steel reflectors are also available to ensure the maximum amount of infrared radiation is reflected forward to the target area.
