Helios Quartz IR Technology - IR Quartz Emitters and Systems

Radiation is the most powerful and efficient way of heating a material. In fact radiation does not need to come into direct contact with the surface of the products to be heated up and does not require the presence of any intermediary agent such as air.

The IR heaters, if compared with traditional heating systems that use the hot air, emit more energy for unit surface and this energy could be focused, concentrated, directed and reflected just like the light.

The use of this technology can give enormous benefits in order of:

• speed heating process;

• energy saving and less heat generation in the sorrounding area;

• easy control of the emitters;

• absence of direct contact with the material and no surrounding area contamination;

• smaller sizes and dimensione of IR quartz heating modules and ovens respect of traditional hot air heating equipments.

Helios Quartz for over 70 years has been specialized in the manufacturing of IR quartz emitters (in short, medium and fast medium wavelenght) and in the production of Infrared Modules and Systems for industrial heating processes. 
Thanks to its long track record and wide set of products always in stock, Helios Quartz can advise the customer choosing the right emitters for the specific application.

Helios Quartz for the Glass Industry

Helios Quartz products are used in many fields of application of the Glass Industry. Here are some examples of the most common areas of use.

Laminated glass production and processing

The laminated glass is a special glass made of two or more glass plates with in between PVB layers. In order to obtain a good laminating process, it is recommended to be sure that the float glass air side surface is in contact with the PVB layer, for this reason it is advisable to check the glass with the Automatic Tin Detector. Of course in case of laminated glass with more than two glass plates it is impossible to have always the air side in contact with the PVB foil. IR Medium Wave emitters are particularly indicated for the heating of the PVB during the lamination process. Helios Quartz design its IR Medium Wave emitters with a high performance that is especially appreciated by most of the worldwide leader companies in the production of laminations ovens. The Fast Medium Wave emitters, thanks to their fast on/off response time, are used in the laminated glass cutting machines.

Drying screen printing and coating curing

In the drying screen printing processes of automotive and household appliance glasses and in the curing of decorative glass coatings it is suitable the usage of Helios Quartz products, in particular:

- the float glass tin side detection by using the TIN DETECTOR ANALYZER;
- the usage of Infrared emitters, that permit the heating only when and where is really necessary, speeding up of the process, improving the output quality and the reduction of the energy consumption;
- the usage of UV lamps and Polimer equipment for the polymerization of inks, lacquers and paints that react with the UV light.

Mirror production

In the mirror production lines the IR quartz emitters are used for the glass preheating before the silvering process and after, in ovens, for the curing of the coating.

Glass bending and fusion

In the glass bending and glass fusion processes more and more often the IR quartz emitters are chosen as heat generator. They guarantee:
- a shorter heating time therefore a considerable energy saving;
- a high quality output; thanks to the homogeneous heating the glass is not affected by thermal stress; simple installation and fast maintenance
precise regulation of the temperature in the different zone of the oven.

Glass annealing processes

After glass modeling processes, in order to avoid stress and easy breakage, it is advisable to make the glass cool down in a controlled way; for this process it is possible to use the IR quartz emitters that, thanks to their easy control, allow a smooth control of the desired temperature profile.

Vacuum processes

IR quartz emitters produced by Helios Quartz can be properly designed for their usage in vacuum chambers as it happens in the thin film solar cells production and during the preheating process before the coating of the low emitting glass.
