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

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.
- 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
