Infrared Thermal Processing Systems are designed and manufactured to
meet the demands of industry.
|ABOVE: Infrared Heating Technologies' Automated Continuous
Belt System and Power Supply/Controls System coupled to a rolling mill at
a large foil manufacturing company. Foils are automatically loaded,
annealed, and unloaded at a production rate of 15-20 feet per minute. The user reduced the number of required passes through a rolling mill to
achieve gauge on an intermetallic alloy by 40%.
"We are very pleased with the performance of the infrared-based
heating system and its benefit in reducing the number of rolling
passes", Manager, Research and Development.
|ABOVE: Infrared Spring Stress Relieve Oven and Power Supply/Controls System.
15 feet long by 4 feet wide Infrared Conveyor Oven designed and
manufactured for In-Line Stress Relieving of large garage door
extension springs. This all electric infrared system features dual PID/Fuzzy
Logic Adaptive Tuning control heat zones, all stainless steel constructed
hearth and belt, adjustable belt speed, and a production throughput rate
of 1,000 lbs/hr. Springs stress relieved in the Infrared On-Line Oven
System perform (in cycle and load tests) as well or better than those
stress relived using a standard batch oven process.
|ABOVE: 8' high x 6' wide x 28' long Infrared
Curing Oven for curing large powder-coated seating structures.
This 300KW system has two control zones and includes a 48" turn
radius right turn and hood structure to accommodate the customer's current
overhead conveyor system and floor plan layout.
The system uses T3 lamp based heating elements and is completely
modular in design. Integrated heating panels can be added or removed in
48" length increments. The interior features 1" of IR reflective
fiber board insulation for low heat loss and high efficiency.
These Infrared Curing Ovens are available in nearly any size to
match your part size and production throughput requirements.
ABOVE: Multi-Zone Infrared Pre-Heat System during final
testing/run-off at Infrared Heating Technologies' facilities. This 100KW system
features a total heat zone size of 12' length by 3' height, four
independent temperature control zones, and a maximum temperature
capability of 1200oF. The system is completely modular
with eight (8) independently removable panels and accommodations for side
loading and/or overhead conveyor loading of parts. The system is versatile
enough to be used for a variety of applications including
pre-heating, curing, annealing, and others.
ABOVE: Custom designed and manufactured 250KW, 48" x 96"
heat zone, Infrared On-Line Heater And Power Supply/Control System. The system
was designed, manufactured, and installed inside the customer's rolling mill
facility by Infrared Heating Technologies two weeks ahead of delivery schedule at the
request of the purchaser.
The user immediately cut the cost of hot rolling an aluminum alloy with
the addition of The Infrared On-Line Furnace And Power Supply/Control
"Prior to in-line heating we were processing the aluminum
composite from a resistance heated air furnace in a batch-wise manner. Our
cycle time for a customer batch was 8 days. The product was also
inconsistent in frictional properties during rolling resulting in low
yield. We needed a method to improve consistency and decrease our delivery
times. We looked at induction heating, direct gas fired heating and quartz
infrared. We chose in-line infrared by Infrared Heating Technologies because the
system was industrially robust, simple to operate, and it easily met our
process improvement demands. Process times were decreased
from 8 days to 4 days with yields improved from 70% to 80%." Thomas
R. Muth, Technical Manager, Manufacturing Sciences Corporation, A BNFL

Infrared Tube Furnace
and Power Supply System. A large steel heat-treating facility uses this
system placed in series with a linear feed material handling
system and polymer quench to harden and temper steel on a continuous feed.
The Infrared Tube Furnace is a high power radiant furnace offering fast
and uniform heating for a variety of processes. These systems offer large
production throughput capacity in a small heat zone length. High
production throughput rates are accomplished with the system's rapid
start-up time and high burn-temperature filaments leading to faster
heating. The uniform heat flux of the Infrared Tube Furnace leads to
extremely uniform heating profiles in the processed material. Also, part
size and configuration is not critical. A single Infrared Tube Furnace
Heat Zone can uniformly heat a variety of different part sizes and

used for pre-heating PVC square tube prior to blow molding into spindle.
The system feature four modular panels with dual control zones for fast
and uniform heating.
|ABOVE: Infrared Heating Technologies' Continuous Belt Muffle
Furnace. This electric infrared furnace has a maximum temperature
capability of 2000oF and features an Inco 600 muffle heated
from both top and bottom for uniformity with a high temperature 35-19CB
belt with a variable speed drive. These systems are available with inert
and reducing atmosphere coverage and can be used for several low and high
temperature applications including soldering, brazing, sintering,
hardening, annealing, and stress relieving. Systems are available in a
variety of sizes and temperature ranges to meet your specifications.

Infrared Heating Technologies
Systems include conveyor belt, batch, vacuum, atmospheric, and others. All
systems feature extremely fast heating and cool down and outstanding temperature
and process control for fast and precise heating runs.
ABOVE: Infrared Vacuum Furnace, 170 KW, 12 inch diameter by 25 inch long heat zone.
Designed and manufactured for the experimental group at a large filter manufacturer for vacuum and controlled atmosphere sintering and joining.
The Infrared Heating Technologies Infrared Vacuum Furnace uses radiant heating
filaments to heat parts in vacuum and/or protective atmosphere. The system
offers very short cycle times and is specifically designed for experimental
small parts vacuum batch processing.
