CERAMIC ELEMENTS


Applications for infra-red ceramic elements range from thermoforming machines to ovens for drying glued wood and furniture parts.These types of elements are normally used for heating or drying processes. Typical applications are vacuum/thermoforming, shrink wrapping lines, paints and ink drying, water evaporation, industrial and commercial space heating and food warming stations.

At Under Control Instruments we have a full range of ceramic long-wave infra-red elements. All our ceramic elements have CE and UL approvals so quality is assured.

We also can supply a range of accessories, including high-temperature cables, ceramic blocks and energy regulators.

Ceramic Infrared heater elements are very energy efficient converting 96% of the input power to heat and a maximum temperature of 700ºC. Standard voltages are 120, 220, 230, 240 and 480 and standard wattages range between 150 and 1000.

FEATURES

5000 – 10,000 hours working life!

Maximum temperature of 700ºC.

Heating wire embedded into flat or concave shaped heater creates infrared in either focused or parallel rays.

In compliance with all implemented EU

Watt densities vary from 6.45 w/in2 to 38.71 w/in2 (1 w/cm2 to 6 w/cm2.)

Can be supplied complete with K type thermocouple.
