Infragas infrared catalytic gas heaters emit heat through infrared rays and operate with catalytic gas oxidation in total absence of flame. They are innovative systems for pre-heating treatments, curing, drying in the most varied industrial sectors, from paint drying to textile treatments, wood sector and glass sector.
With Infragas panels high technology combines with LOW WORKING COSTS, TREATMENT SPEED and COMPACT OVENS.
Infragas catalytic infrared panels are fit for thermal treatments such as:
Our continuous research is oriented to satisfy customer's expectations with performing, innovative and safe THERMAL SOLUTIONS.
ADVANTAGES OF INFRAGAS INFRARED CATALYTIC PANELS
10 minutes: pre-heating phase made with an electrical element in order to reach the necessary temperature for catalytic reaction. The start-up in 10 minutes is absolutely the shortest compared with all catalytic systems present in the international market considering equal electric power engaged in pre-heating phase.
Compact ovens – ovens built with IR INFRAGAS catalytic systems require less space for installation: power being equal, infrared Infragas systems occupy about 1/3 of the space as regards traditional convective systems.
radiation direct on the object – the ambient is not heated, infrared rays concentrate only on the item to be treated (high power density). Space and energy saving.
By modulating the gas pressure, i.e. the gas quantity, the radiant surface temperature ranges from 180°C (356°F) to 650°C (1202°F).
Infrared medium/long waves are focused on the item to be treated, therefore only the surfaces hit by radiation has to cool down and not all the mass of the treated item, not the surrounds, as compared with hot air traditional convective systems.
The catalyst is able to decompose solvents, alcohols and generally VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) without burning; as a consequence, it occurs a reduction of the atmospheric pollution and a sensible odor abatement in the working area.
Thanks to catalytic technology based on combustion without flame, Infragas radiant panels are usable in spray-booths and where the presence of flammable solvents does not allow the use of the open flame types (INFRAGAS = FM and ATEX certifications for potentially explosive atmospheres).
Gas as primary source of energy is more economic than electricity. Moreover, IR radiation concentrates on the item to be treated: as a consequence, catalytic IR systems involve quicker treatments with low costs.
In case of coating drying with traditional convection systems working with hot air, it is necessary to pre-heat the external part and then to heat the innermost part of the item. Therefore, in evaporation phase from inside to outside, humidity and vapors must cross the surface layer that had been already heated before and had formed a coating film: the result with the traditional system is a not homogeneous effect, called "bubbling effect".
Whereas with infrared radiation concentrates on the innermost coating layers and then the heat goes back to surface: the result is an extremely homogeneous finishing, without defects, as infrared waves penetrate the paint surface and heat the coating layer leaving the external surface porous enough to let solvents and water to get out before surface curing.
