The SFA-Q industrial infrared heater from Radiant Energy Systems features a quartz plate in front of stamped-foil elements that enables infrared energy to pass through to the product while ensuring that the heater remains isolated from the process. Flowing air cools the plate and internal heater components while simultaneously pressurizing the heater. This pressurization and purging ensures contaminates do not enter the heater housing nor become exposed to the heating elements. The heater is specifically designed for operating in difficult environments like solvent or dusty applications and corrosive atmospheres. It also can also be placed within many classifications of clean-room environments.
The SFA-Q’s elements are designed to heat up and respond quickly to different set points. Additionally, it needs less time to cool down than a typical quartz face heater, the company says.
