Comparing Different Forms of Infrared Heat

    Throughout the years many different forms of infrared heat sources have been developed. Some of the more familiar forms seen today are metal sheathed tubular heaters, quartz tubes, quartz lamps, gas-fired catalytic, flat faced panels, and ceramic emitters. Each source has its own distinctive set of properties:

Radiant Efficiency:  The total amount of infrared energy, relative to a "black body radiator," that is emitted from the source.

Physical Strength:
   The physical strength of each source. A high rating indicates a very durable source that can withstand physical abuse such as dropping a wrench on the source.

Heat-Up/Cool Down:
   The amount of time required for the source to come up to operating temperature and cool back down to room temperature.

Maximum Temperature:
   Maximum operating temperature of the source.

Color Sensitivity:
    Refers to the ability of a typical load to absorb the spectral radiation emitted from a source based on the color of the load.  The shorter the wavelength emitted from a source the more color sensitive a load will be to the sources spectral radiation.
