Modular Cylindrical IR Heaters have clam shell design.
March 9, 2012 -
Available to OEMs and capable of 24 hr operation, cylindrical clam shell IR heaters provide precisely controlled heat at medium wavelength that completely surrounds product for uniform effect. Heaters utilize clear or opaque quartz tubes in center with heating elements wrapped around outer surface of quartz. Insulation keeps outside skin at 120° for operator safety, and design failitates operator threading/cleaning and is suitable for vertical and horizontal mounting.

New, Exceptionally Efficient Cylindrical Infrared Heaters for OEMs
Hawthorne, New Jersey--- Anderson Thermal Devices Inc. now offers cylindrical "clam shell" infrared heaters to OEMs. These heaters provide intense, precisely controlled heat at medium wavelength that completely surrounds the product for uniform and efficient heat transfer. These modular infrared heaters utilize clear or opaque quartz tubes in the center with heating elements wrapped around the outer surface of the quartz. This combination allows for maximum efficiency and high rates of heat transfer.
Even at high temperatures, insulation keeps the outside skin at 120°for operator safety. This design is suitable for vertical and horizontal mounting. Stacking multiple units permits faster line speeds. Typical products made with this design are wire, cable, tube, profile and hose.
The quartz tube prevents the product from touching the heating elements and is durable enough to withstand the impact of most products that would be processed in this type of heater. Its make-up permits 24 hour operation.
This unit's design allows for easy operator threading and cleaning. Manufacturing not needing easy access can use other infrared heater designs- specifically the solid and keyhole configurations. Its space age insulation minimizes heat loss into the work area making them exceptionally efficient. Drying, heating, sintering and curing applications can be run on this clam shell design.
