Ceramic infrared heat elements are efficient, robust heaters which provide long wave infrared radiation. The ceramic heaters and infrared heaters are used in a diverse range of industrial and engineering applications such as thermoforming heaters, packaging and as heaters for paint curing, printing and drying. They are also used very effectively in infrared outdoor heaters and infrared saunas. Ceramic elements produced by Ceramicx include ceramic trough elements, ceramic hollow elements, ceramic flat elements, and ceramic infrared bulbs.
Ceramic elements operate in the temperature of 300°C to 700°C (572°F - 1292°F) producing infrared wavelengths in the 2 - 10 micron range. Most plastics and many other materials absorb infrared best in this range, which makes the ceramic heater the most popular infrared radiant emitter on the market. A range of aluminised steel reflectors are also available to ensure the maximum amount of infrared radiation is reflected forward to the target area.
