Infrared Radiant Heaters

Model STAR infrared radiant heaters are electric heaters specifically designed to emit infrared heat.  This allows for efficient use in open areas where it is not ideal to heat by other means.  Typical applications are spot or zone heating.  Because STAR heaters rely on infrared energy, they are able to transmit heat without losing it to the outside or other areas not being utilized.  Chromalox offers both fixed and portable models.

STAR-P Portable Radiant Heater & STAR-F Fixed Overhead Radiant Heaters

The Chromalox ChromaStar™ infra-red comfort heaters are designed to provide a rugged source of heat for use in areas where dependence on air movement is impractical. The heaters are versatile, designed to provide warmth directly where it is needed for primary or spot heating applications. Each unit is constructed for long life and requires minimal maintenance. There are no moving parts or motors to wear out, no air filters or lubrication required.

All Chromalox ChromaStar™ radiant heaters feature the exclusive “Arctic End” Patent Pending heating element terminal construction. This feature lowers the terminal box temperatures resulting in extended element and wiring life.

Extruded aluminum housings are rigid to provide added protection to the heating elements located at the focal point of a built-in mirrored aluminum reflector(s).

The heater(s) consist of hairpin bent .430” diameter alloy sheath tubular element(s) constructed of high quality resistance wire embedded in carefully selected MgO refractory insulation. The element feature “Arctic end” terminal construction for longer life and cooler terminal enclosure temperatures. The element(s) also feature terminal construction using a waged-in silicone bushings that produce unequalled resistance to moisture absorption. The heating element(s) connect to a gasketed, moisture resistance terminal enclosure with liquid-tight bulkhead threaded fittings. An extension reflector constructed of 0.050” mirrored aluminum extends over the assembly to provide a more uniform heating pattern.
