Quartz Heaters

A reliable source for Quartz Heaters information and leading Quartz Heaters Companies & Manufacturers.

Quartz heaters are heating devices that transfer heat using electromagnetic radiation known as short-wave infrared heating. Radiant heating makes use of infrared waves for directly heating surfaces and objects. Every object emits and absorbs infrared heat (the part of the electromagnetic spectrum with a frequency below visible light). In quartz heaters, an electric heating element is powered to produce energy in the infrared portion of the spectrum that will then transfer to the target. Read More…

What are Quartz Heaters?

Air does not quickly absorb infrared energy; therefore, most of the energy is used to heat the target. Quartz heaters are incredibly efficient. This is because quartz is almost transparent to infrared energy. That means the heat produced by the heating element can pass through quartz without being absorbed. High-quality quartz can have over 95% transparency to infrared energy.

The Working Principle of Quartz Heaters

Quartz heaters are common types of infrared heaters. A heating element enclosed in a quartz tube creates and releases heat from the heaters. The heating element produces heat at specific wavelengths to create the right intensity level to heat a specific material.

The tube protects the heating element and prevents the escape of convection heat. When the heating element becomes very hot, the quartz tube will experience a sudden heat build-up. When the tube reaches the appropriate temperature, heat is emitted from the tube. The infrared heat produced is directly absorbed by the people and objects near the heater.

Types of Quartz Heaters

The different types of quartz heaters include:

Medium Wavelength Tube Heaters

Medium wavelength tube heaters of quartz heaters are made with a heating element inside a quartz tube. These can be mounted in banks to create heating arrays for drying applications.

Short Wavelength Tube Heaters

Short wavelength tube heaters are similar to medium wavelength tube heaters because they both have a heating element inside a quartz tube. They differ, however, because quartz tubes are filled with a noble gas and sealed, and these elements are made from tungsten. Short wavelength tube heaters are suitable for metal and powder coating applications.

Quartz Panel Heaters

Quartz panel heaters are higher-mass heaters used to produce evenly-distributed energy over large surface areas.

Furnace Tube Heaters

Furnace tube heaters consist of a heating element wrapped around a quartz tube. Putting the heating element on the exterior rather than the interior benefits IR and convection heating users. Furnace tube heaters are best for furnace applications where the object and environment must be heated to a set temperature.

Benefits of Quartz Heaters for Manufacturers

Quartz Heaters are Affordable

Quartz heaters are more affordable than other heating systems. They have a low maintenance cost and are energy efficient. Quartz electrical heaters are especially energy efficient as they heat objects quickly with minimal energy.

Quartz Heaters Maintain an Even Heat Distribution

Quartz heaters directly heat objects. They provide an even, consistent heat source from every point they are placed.

Quartz Heaters are Safe and Secure

Quartz heaters are safe to use in commercial and residential settings. This is because they do not burn oxygen as other heaters do. Quartz heaters use electricity as their power source. An added bonus: quartz heaters are environmentally friendly. They don’t release toxic gases into the air.

Quartz Heaters are Durable

Quartz heaters have a long life expectancy, with minimal maintenance required. Quartz heaters will heat up and cool down quite quickly. Quartz heaters can be used for creating quieter heating equipment because the air movement that comes from noisy convection blowers is unnecessary.
