Infrared (IR) elements offer fast and efficient heating at a low investment cost. IR elements are used for radiant heating, for example in the plastic industry. You can also use IR elements for patio heaters, which are mounted under an umbrella. IR elements are made of ceramic material, quartz glass and quartz glass with halogen. IR elements can be used in a vacuum environment or in environments with air movements. Infrared radiation is especially suitable when a short-term intermittent heating is required.
