Infrared Emitters protected against dust and spray

A sealing system for infrared emitters developed and manufactured by Heraeus Noblelight GmbH has been granted IP65 certification by VDE Offenbach. This sealing system allows the use of infrared systems for outdoor heating processes, where it will protect against the ingress of dirt or spray water.

Wire rope hoists on cranes must not freeze up in cold damp weather. Infrared emitters can protect rope hoists as well as tracks, filters and locks from icing up quickly, effectively and energy-efficiently, as the heat is transferred without contact in an easily controllable manner. This prevents the possibility of any short circuit in the system, for example by dampness penetrating a switch box.

Infrared emitters from Heraeus Noblelight are made from hard-wearing and shock-resistant quartz glass, so that they are well suited for outdoor applications. The electrical connectors for such emitters are fed into the connection box via a special seal. This system underwent many days of testing by the VDE in Offenbach in June and July and proved itself totally sealed to dust and spray, conforming with and satisfying VDE 0710 DIN40050, relating to IP65.

Heating processes Improve With Precise Matching

Industrial processes can be optimised in many ways by using infrared heating technology:

• High heat transfer capacity
• Heat transfer without contact
• High efficiency
• Efficient energy transfer by selecting the optimal IR wavelength
• Contained energy application by matching the emitter to the shape of the product

• Fast response times to optimise energy usage

Infrared heat is always used when heating processes are required to meet particular requirements in terms of place, time or quality.
