Do you know what IR emitters have to do with your heater?

02.02.2018

Gas turbines need air for combustion, which must be free of dust and other particles. Therefore it always need to be pre-filtered.

Moist cold intake air in the winter months can easily lead to icing of the filter. The filters then allow only minimal airflow and the gas turbine must be throttled or shut down completely - just when it is needed the most.

Infrared systems from Heraeus Noblelight successfully prevent the filters from icing up in gas power plants and gas compression stations during the cold season.

Would you like to read detailled application examples about anti-icing with infrared systems?

Infrared heat technology for industrial processes

Industrial heat processes need to provide energy at the push of a button, at precisely the right time and to the correct place.

  • You wish to debur difficult plastic contours?
  • Your paint drying must not limit production?
  • You need heat for food processing adjusted precisely within +/-1°C?

Intelligent infrared systems can do this. See how it works!

How does infrared heat technology work?

Infrared heat technology works by transmitting electromagnetic waves which generate heat within the product.

  • Heating requires no contact
  • High heat transmission capacity
  • Fast transfer with high power
  • No energy wasted to a transmission medium

Infrared radiation adjusted to product and process

Part of the electromagnetic radiation is absorbed in the material, another portion is reflected and the rest penetrates the materials. Only the absorbed portion contributes to heating. Each material has its own absorption spectrum, the range in which the electromagnetic radiation is best absorbed.

When the emission spectrum of an infrared emitter is optimally adjusted to a material's absorption spectrum, the material is heated much faster and much more efficiently.


Your advantages

  • Infrared emitters transmit heat without contact
  • Short response times
  • Infrared emitters are precisely adjusted to the product with regard to wavelength, voltage, power and shape
  • Precisely adjusted infrared emitter systems increase process speed, improve quality and save energy

Im Focus: Light from a roll – hybrid OLED creates innovative and functional luminous surfaces

Up to now, OLEDs have been used exclusively as a novel lighting technology for use in luminaires and lamps. However, flexible organic technology can offer much more: as an active lighting surface, it can be combined with a wide variety of materials, not just to modify but to revolutionize the functionality and design of countless existing products. To exemplify this, the Fraunhofer FEP together with the company EMDE development of light GmbH will be presenting hybrid flexible OLEDs integrated into textile designs within the EU-funded project PI-SCALE for the first time at LOPEC (March 19-21, 2019 in Munich, Germany) as examples of some of the many possible applications.

The Fraunhofer FEP, a provider of research and development services in the field of organic electronics, has long been involved in the development of...

Im Focus: Regensburg physicists watch electron transfer in a single molecule

For the first time, an international team of scientists based in Regensburg, Germany, has recorded the orbitals of single molecules in different charge states in a novel type of microscopy. The research findings are published under the title “Mapping orbital changes upon electron transfer with tunneling microscopy on insulators” in the prestigious journal “Nature”.

The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks...
