Ceramic Emitter Mounting
This drawing shows a ceramic heater and a reflector with an oblong hole for mounting.
LTE Ceramic Emitter Mounting
Our larger LTE element has two mounting posts on the back side. This drawing shows an LTE and a reflector with two oblong holes for mounting.
This drawing shows an LTE installed in a reflector.
temperature 842°F (450°C) MG or similar style wire (with a suitable temperature and
amperage rating) should be used for all electrical connections made within the terminal
area of the infrared panel. The high temperature wire must be run on top of (or above) the
ceramic fiber insulation.
|Ceramic terminal blocks are
recommended to allow for quick emitter replacement, flexibility in zoning, and "touch safe" design.
|The terminal cover for the infrared panel should be louvered or made out of expanded metal to minimize the temperature within the terminal area.|
The spacing of the emitters should be such that the resulting infrared emissions incident on the target will be even and maximized.
|Emitters that are tightly spaced in an array will allow the
target to be positioned close to the emitters and still result in even heating. The
intensity and efficiency of the infrared radiation will be maximized and heat losses will
|Emitters that are loosely spaced in an array will force the target to be positioned further away in order to achieve even heating. This style of panel would typically result in a lower intensity infrared emission.|
