Highest Watt Density Available of any
Medium Wave Infrared Radiant Panel Heater
— Due to thermal and electrical properties
of the grooved quartz face plate, CPHI has
the highest watt density (5.76 kW/Ft2) of any
medium wave infrared radiant panel.
Uniform Radiation Pattern Assured with
a wide flat infrared surface versus the line
pattern given in normal radiant heaters. This
eliminates uneven heating of the work and
allows uniform heating of a stationary surface
such as in an indexing process.
Lower Operating Cost with up to 80% of the
input energy transmitted to and absorbed by
the work material. The maximum amount of
radiant energy is transferred to the work with
very low heater convection losses. Typical
installation distance of two to four inches from
the work surface significantly reduces the
External Reflectors Not Required — The
refractory board and bulk insulation behind the
heating element help prevent back heat loss.
This eliminates the need for external reflectors.
Costly Downtime Minimized — There is no
deterioration of the output radiation level with
heater life and no reflectors to clean which
could cause downtime and increased maintenance
costs. The unit is resistant to vibration
because of the compact homogeneous
Easy Installation — The light weight building
block approach allows for a modular installation
which is easily expandable.
Note — CPHI heaters mount only so that the
coil direction is in the horizontal plane.
Repeatable Process Performance Assured
— Used with closed loop control, the system
automatically compensates for ambient temperature
ranges and line voltage fluctuations.
Maximum energy transfer requires matching
the peak wavelength output to the specific material
absorption characteristics. Because the
peak wavelengths of the flat surface heater are
repeatable and adjustable, the quality output of
the process is assured.
Heating Element — Precision iron base
resistance wire, designed to give extended
life and uniform emission over entire
Emission Surface — Grooved fused
quartz face plate for CPHI type heaters.
Special ratings with aluminum emission
surfaces are available for applications
such as in the food industry.
Frame — Heavy gauge, heat-resistant
Heating Element Support — Fibrous
ceramic material specially developed for
high insulation qualities, durability, shock
resistance, asbestos free.
Insulation — Hight temperature insulation
to minimize heat loss from back of
Terminals — Stainless Steel terminals in
a 4 x 4" junction box are provided with
CPHI type heaters.
Thermowell — Quality tubular quartz
thermowell, with strain relief, to accept a
