Easy Mounting — Heater can be mounted to radiate in any direction.
Reliable Operation — No reduction in radiant output over life of heater.
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.
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.
One-Piece Bonded Construction resists damage
from vibration and shock.
Overtemperature Control — These units
should be controlled such that overheating
and premature failure do not occur.

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
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. These rugged
panels can be mounted in any direction.
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 — Woven refractory
cloth with black ceramic coating for high
radiant energy transfer for CPLI, CPL and
CPH type heaters. Aluminum emission
surfaces are available for applications
such as in the food industry.
Frame — Heavy gauge, heat resistant,
aluminized steel for CPLI, CPL and CPH
Heating Element Support — Fibrous
ceramic material, specially developed for
high insulation qualities, durability, shock
resistance, asbestos free.
Insulation — High temperature insulation
to minimize heat loss from back of
Terminals — For CPLI, lead-wires are
provided on a 2 x 4" junction box. A 2 x 4"
junction box with stainless steel terminals
is provided for CPL and CPH type heaters.
Thermowell — Quality tubular quartz
thermowell, with strain relief, to accept a
Chromalox C-700JU or C-700KU
thermocouple on units with suffix T in
model number. Standard placement of
the thermowell is on side of heater.
Specials are available with thermowell
exiting back of heater.
