Flat Ceramic Elements
Ceramic IR Flat Elements (FFE/HFE/QFE) are industry standard ceramic emitters used in a wide range of industrial, commercial and domestic applications. These solid cast ceramic elements consist of a high temperature FeCrAl resistance alloy embedded in a specially formulated ceramic body allowing operating temperatures up to 750degC and a maximum power output of 1000W (FFE Model Only). The solid cast heater body is flat, producing a diffuse radiant output to target distance in some applications.
Ceramicx are highly committed to the research and development surrounding its component lines which also has the capacity to inform the applications engineering side of its business. We have developed test and evaluation facilities focused on Infrared heating energy that are the first of their kind. These test and evaluation facilities have been developed in conjunction with Trinity College Dublin as part of an Innovation partnership program funded by Enterprise Ireland and Ceramicx. These test and evaluation facilities allow Ceramicx to evaluate the infrared energy (watts per centimeters squared) outputted from their ceramic heaters. Temperature and Thermocouples have always been a poor method of evaluating the performance of Infrared emitters. Ceramicx can now build on their research facilitating more infrared energy produced at a lower temperatures allowing more energy efficient processing including producing energy efficient industrial heaters and heaters for industrial processing.
This concept can now be demonstrated and proven to customers. Read more information on the Innovation Partnership project here. Test data for all the Ceramicx range of elements will be made available in the coming weeks and months. Ceramicx are leaders in providing world class infrared heating elements UK and to Ireland.
