Uses for far infrared heating ceramic elements range from thermoforming machines to ovens for drying glued wood and furniture parts. The use of these infrared elements is 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.
Ceramic Infrared heater elements are energy efficient, converting 96% of the input power to heat and a maximum temperature of 700ºC. Standard wattages are available from 150w to 1000w, voltage options available on request.
We also supply a range of accessories, including high-temperature cables, ceramic blocks and energy regulators.
The ceramic heaters from UCI are available in 2 standard sizes 245 x 60mm and 125 x 60mm. They have a curved profile and emit far wave infrared heat. The sun emits this type of wave pattern so is more gentle and is suitable for warming through an object, unlike short wave, which is more intense.
The elements are used in many applications from thermoforming, drying and curing. They are considered very energy efficient as 96% of the energy is converted into heat.
We recommend the use of our non-contact pyrometer sensors for accurate temperature control.
