Series 251, 262, and 263
Glenro quartz tube infrared heaters pack massive energy transfer into small spaces. They deliver 50-100 watts per linear inch of clean, quiet heat. Heaters are available with medium wavelength or short wavelength tubes. Series 262 and 263 heaters use medium wave quartz tubes, while Series 251 is a high intensity T-3 tube model. T-3 quartz tubes can develop temperatures as high as 4000°F for applications that require intense heat. Quartz tube systems offer excellent multizone control across wide webs. In many cases Glenro uses gold-backed quartz tubes, which direct heat towards the product for high energy efficiency. The reflective gold backing also eliminates the need for insulated reflectors which can release contaminants into the product stream. Some coating and printing applications need intense heat applied to the web because of high process speeds. Clean room manufacturing operations need intense heat with no risk of product contamination. The proven solution to both requirements is a Glenro quartz tube infrared heater or system. They can easily be retrofitted into coating lines, printing presses and other equipment to speed drying. Quartz tube heaters are also available for clean room applications such as medical manufacturing.
