Of all the heating systems available, infrared panels for industrial hovens makes the most sense. The system is efficient and reliable. It is also exceptionally good at providing a steady quantity of heat to specific objects.
Infrared rays are part of the electromagnetic spectrum. They produce heat when the infrared ray is between 0.78 and 1000 microns. This can be split into short waves, medium waves, and long waves. The longer the wave the wider the beam and the further it is capable of traveling.
Infrared panels can be powered by gas or electricity and set to produce a specific amount of heat. This means if you place an object at a set distance in front of the heater, the heat it receives will be constant. That makes it perfect for drying items.
Of course, the fact that it feels like you are standing in the sunshine also makes it a great choice to heat the workers.
Catalytic technology In Infrared Panels
The creation of specific levels of heat is perfectly demonstrated by these infrared panels for industrial hovens which are designed to produce 30KW/m².
Of course, the heat can be modulated according to what you need. The temperature of the heater surface can be set anywhere between 365°F and 1202°F. Depending on the heat output you need power usage will vary from 6kW to 25kW.
Catalytic technology allows you to create flameless heat that can be set high in the electromagnetic wavelength to ensure the widest possible distribution of heat at a steady temperature.
This makes it the perfect option when you need to dry a long row of products, such as painted discs. It can also help control the curing of powder coating and coil coating.
The real beauty of this technology is the ability of a platinum catalyst to convert the gas into the infrared waves that are needed. This can also be achieved via a chemical conversion process.
Gas Or Electric?
It is possible to get gas or electric catalytic emitters for your infrared panels. Both are effective at generating heat. However, electric infrared panels are more likely to experience failure, and gas catalytic infrared creates emission wavelengths perfectly balanced with the absorption or an array of organic coatings.
In short, the gas option is generally the better choice as it is more reliable and efficient.
The Right Infrared Panels
Choosing the right infrared panels is easier than you think. Once you have decided what you need the heat for you will be able to calculate the amount of heat required. This will guide you to which size panels you need and what heat output.
Remember, the higher the wavelength the broader the infrared ray and the further it will travel. But, it won’t be as hot as a lower electromagnetic wave that uses a narrow beam.
Any infrared panel will do the job of heating your industrial hoven, but choosing the right wavelength ensures a balance between heat and efficiency.
