Keep Cool. Take Aim.
Directional heating elements put the heat where you want it!
Our directional quartz elements feature shielding that deflects radiant energy away from the shielding side of the tube. This creates a "cool side" and is ideal for heating environments where it is undesirable to radiate heat in all directions. This allows OEM's to offer customers more efficient use of limited space.
We can manufacture these innovative elements in virtually any size. Two varieties are available:
Gold Vapor Treated
Pure gold is applied to one side of the tube in a patented process. This micro-thin shield is approximately 93% reflective, allowing you to reduce component size, avoid heat dissipation and interference in process, and concentrate useful heat energy.
A strip of special-composition nonconductive ceramic fiber is inserted into the tube parallel to the resistor for low cost directional heat.
