INFRARED HEATERS

Quartz Tube/T3

Protherm has joined forces with Fannon Products, LLC who manufactures over 1000 different high quality and fairly priced quartz infrared lamps. We have the ability to install their quality medium-wave and short-wave quartz tubes in heaters and ovens of various sizes and shapes. All of these quartz tubes can be made in virtually any length, wattage, voltage and with a variety of end terminations. Fannon uses a “tube in tube” design with an integral gold reflector know as the “Goldenrod” that directs the infrared energy where it is needed.

Golden Rod Advantages
Gold is proven to be the best reflector of infrared radiation. A standard infrared lamp will emit infrared in a 360 degree heat pattern, thus relying on a secondary reflector to direct over half of the infrared toward the object being heated. Secondary reflectors quickly become dirty and inefficient. Fannon Products, LLC manufactures infrared lamps with an integral gold reflector built into the lamp that makes the lamp directional, and offers distinct advantages:

  • 23.5% more efficient than a standard lamp that utilizes a secondary reflector
  • Virtually 100% of the infrared energy is directed toward the object being heated, with minimal waste
  • Eliminates the need for costly, heavy, inefficient secondary reflectors
  • Upgrade outdated equipment and improve radiant efficiency
  • Keeps interior equipment surfaces and surrounding equipment cooler
  • Increase in efficiency allows for reduction in lamp output, extending lamp life
  • Can be grouped together for very high watt densities
  • Specific IR dispersion angles from lamps
  • Snap-in design for quick and easy installation; no wire connections necessary

Goldenrod Medium-Wave Infrared Lamps
The Goldenrod medium-wave infrared lamp is a directional lamp design that contains its own integral reflector. The infrared energy is dispersed out of the tube in one direction without the need for an external reflector. The gold reflector is coated on the quartz tube that directs the energy toward the work in process. The reflector cannot become soiled because it is integral to the product. Some of the features of the Goldenrod Directional Medium-Wave Infrared Lamp are:

  • Available in virtually any length, wattage, and voltage
  • Can be made to operate in the horizontal and/or vertical position
  • A variety of resistance alloys available for operation up to 2000 degrees F
  • Available in clear or translucent quartz, single-tube or twin-tube design
  • Long life – up to 10,000 hours of actual burning time
  • Reasonably fast thermal response for precise control
  • Saves 23.5% energy expense compared to standard IR tubes
  • Integral reflector keeps interior equipment surfaces and surrounding equipment much cooler
  • Snap-in design available; no wire connections necessary
  • Specific IR dispersion angles from lamp are available
  • Affordable pricing

Standard Medium-Wave Infrared Lamps
Fannon Products, LLC will manufacture standard infrared lamps in any length, wattage and voltage for new applications or for replacement lamps for any existing equipment. Our quality is the best, and our pricing and delivery cannot be beat!

Fast-Response Medium-Wave Infrared Lamps
In applications where medium-wave infrared is required and the thermal response of the lamp is critical, Fannon Products, LLC manufactures Fast Response Medium-Wave Infrared Lamps. These lamps are available as standard or with a gold reflector, and can be made in virtually any length, wattage and voltage.

Instant ON / OFF Medium-Wave Infrared Lamps
Fannon Products, LLC offers a medium-wave Infrared lamp that is Instant ON/OFF. This lamp is currently available in a 17.25” heated length (19.75” OAL) and a 21” heated length (23.75” OAL). Custom sizes are also available.

Short-Wavelength

Goldenrod Short-Wave Infrared Lamps (Tube-in-a-Tube design)
The Fannon gold-backed short-wave infrared lamp is a directional design that contains its own integral reflector. The infrared energy is dispersed out of the tube in one direction, without the need of a secondary reflector. There is an outer quartz tube that contains the gold reflector which surrounds the inner quartz tube. This provides an air space (360 degrees) around the inner tube. This provides many advantages for protection and function. Some of the features of the Goldenrod Directional Short-Wave lamp are:

  • Instant thermal response for precise control
  • Saves 23.5% energy expense compared to standard lamps
  • Available heated lengths: 1”, 5”, 8”, 10”, 16”, 25”, 28”, 38”, 40”, 53”, 58”
  • Single or twin-tube design
  • Horizontal and vertical operation available
  • Tungsten filament for burning temperature up to 4000 degrees F
  • No secondary reflector required to direct energy toward work in process
  • Air space provides superior heat dissipation to protect gold reflector
  • Can be grouped together for very high watt densities
  • Snap-in design available; no wire connections necessary
  • Integral reflector keeps interior equipment surfaces and surrounding equipment much cooler
  • Specific IR dispersion angles from lamp are available
  • Custom lengths, wattage, and operating voltages are available
  • Long life, affordable pricing
