Ceramic infrared panel

INFRARED HEATER PANEL

Ceramic Infrared Heater is a type of heating device that utilizes ceramic elements to produce and emit infrared radiation, which transfers heat directly to objects and people in its path. These heaters typically consist of a ceramic plate or coils that heat up when electricity passes through them. They emit infrared rays that warm up nearby objects by penetrating the air without actually heating it directly, making them an efficient and quick heating solution. Ceramic infrared heaters are known for their energy efficiency, rapid heating capabilities, and ability to provide focused warmth in specific areas. 

SFH Ceramic Infrared

SFH Super Flat Radiators are ceramic infrared radiators in flat design. They reach operating temperatures up to 800°C and surface ratings up to 64 kW/m².  The radiators of the SFH series are very suited for applications, which require space-saving installation. The borders of SFH radiators are used as bearing surface on a metal mounting sheet or reflector. For each radiator a corresponding rounded mounting hole is required to place the heaters into them. When mounting SFH super flat radiators a heat insulation can be added additionally. A temperature resistant insulating material can be applied on site directly on the back of the radiator. SFH super flat radiators are available in four designs and cover the power range from 60 W to 1000 W.

 

ALW
D-1 Ceramic Infrared

HTS

(Energy saving) HTS

Elstein HTS high temperature heaters are ceramic infrared panel heaters, which can be used for operating temperatures up to 860 °C and surface ratings up to 64 kW/m².

HTS heaters are produced using a hollow-casting ceramic process and are filled with thermal insulation material. This improves the radiant power output to the material to be heated.

Furthermore, there is a significant reduction in heat dissipated in the wiring space, so that additional insulation of the heating area is usually not required.

Compared with IR heaters, which are produced by using full-poured casting processes, HTS heaters have a considerably reduced heating-up time and, depending on the type of application, enable energy savings of up to 25 %.

Elstein HTS high temperature heaters are available in four designs and cover the power range from 60 W to 1,000 W.

SHTS

(Max Power, Panel Radiator)SHTS

Elstein SHTS super high temperature heaters were developed to increase the previous maximum possible surface rating of ceramic panel heaters from 64 kW/m² to 77 kW/m².

The SHTS heaters, produced using a hollow casting ceramic process, are filled with thermal insulation material and have a special black glaze and a gold-plated back. At an operating temperature of 860 °C, over 75 % of the electrical energy supplied is transferred to the material to be heated as medium to long-wave IR radiation.

SHTS heaters are therefore particularly suitable for use in plant construction in which special solutions have to be drawn up for the customer’s specific needs and for applications requiring high outputs.

The four standard designs cover the power range from 300 W to 1,200 W and have customary market dimensions regarding the Elstein product range. Existing IR equipments can therefore be retrofitted with Elstein SHTS heaters.

HSR

(Short heat-up/cool-down time)HSR

Elstein High Speed ​​Radiators HSR are especially suitable for use in clocked production processes, with frequent tool changes or when the temperature has to drop quickly in the event of transfer disruptions in order to avoid damage to a production plant.

They are fast-reacting ceramic infrared panel heaters, designed for operating temperatures of up to 900 °C and area outputs of up to 64 kW/m².

The external feature of the HSR heater is the visible heating coil, which is built into a ceramic body. Compared to infrared heaters with a heating coil embedded in ceramic, this design offers up to 65 % less heating and cooling times as well as reduced heat dissipation into the wiring space.

Elstein High Speed ​​Radiators HSR are standardly available in three designs and cover the power range from 125 W to 1,000 W.

FSF

(Max service life)FSF

Elstein FSF series heaters can be used universally. Due to the low height of the elements, space-saving installation is possible. Compared to other heaters, the height of the FSF elements, measured from the radiating surface to the mounting plate, has been reduced by approx. 45 %.

Elstein FSF panel heaters are ceramic infrared heaters with a low overall height. They are manufactured using a full ceramic casting process and are designed for operating temperatures of up to 750 °C and area outputs of up to 64 kW/m².

Elstein FSF are available as standard in four designs with standard Elstein panel heater dimensions and cover the power range from 60 W to 1,000 W.

FSR

(Proved Quality)FSR

Elstein FSR panel heaters can be used universally and are suitable for building up heating systems with any geometry.

With the FSR panel radiators, Elstein-Werk has been setting the globally recognized standards for ceramic infrared heaters in terms of shape, design, performance and quality since 1952.

Elstein FSR are ceramic infrared emitters that are designed for operating temperatures of up to 750 °C. Optionally, area outputs of up to 64 kW/m² can be installed.

They are manufactured using a full ceramic casting process and are characterized by their concave design. Due to this design, there is a gap between the radiator and the mounting plate, which reduces the heat absorption of the wiring space.

They are available in three standard designs and cover the power range from 60 W to 1,000 W.

IOT Screw Heater

(Easy Connection E27 Base)

IOT

Elstein screw-in elements of the IOT series are ceramic infrared elements with an E27 screw base.

The emitters of the IOT series are so-called “dark emitters” that do not emit any visible light and, due to this property, the robustness, especially in the heaters’ socket area as well as the simple temperature control options (e.g. with standard dimmers), have been used successfully for millions of times, for decades. They are used e.g. in animal breeding or terrariums and are perceived by animals (self-warm and cold-blooded), especially during the night, as a non-disturbing source of warmth.

The standardized E27 thread enables simple and safe installation, as the elements can be screwed into porcelain sockets or metal sockets with a porcelain insert like lightbulbs.

Elstein IOT infrared elements are suitable because of their simple connection options for both individual operation and for setting up groups of heaters. The possible uses are diverse and, in addition to animal breeding and terraristics, particularly extend to the areas of medical and gastronomy technology.

The standard IOT/75 and IOT/90 emitters are available each in two power levels of 60 W and 100 W or 150 W and 250 W.
