RADIANT QUARTZ
GLO-QUARTZ® infrared radiant heaters are fast responding and a very efficient source of radiant energy. With heat-up capabilities of 45 to 50 seconds and complete cool down in approximately 15 seconds, this is an ideal heating device for use in applications where frequent line stoppage is expected or immediate heat-up and cool down is essential. quartz lamps, quartz heaters, radiant heater

TECHNICAL DATA ... Notes of Caution...
For a longer operating life and more efficient heating, quartz heating applications should be rated around 35 to 45 watts per linear inch.
Quartz heaters are designed for horizontal use only.
The translucent quartz tube provides an infrared wave length at an energy peak of 2.5 to 4.0 microns, when operating at full voltage and is suitable for most industrial applications.
 

 

  • White cotton gloves should be worn when handling quartz elements. Touching the elements with bare hands can leave oil and dirt from the skin and contaminate the quartz sheath causing hot spots and premature failure.
  • Quartz heaters must not be operated in the presence of combustible materials, such as vapors, gases or other flammable materials without proper ventilation.
