Infrared ceramic heater elements
Ceramic infrared heaters are devices that produce long-wave infrared radiation by heating a ceramic body to high temperatures.Read More
The useful wavelength range of these heaters is 2-10 microns, which means they emit infrared radiation that has a wavelength between 2 and 10 micrometers.
Other variations of these heaters include different voltages, wattages, lead lengths, and terminations. These can be customized according to the specific needs of the customers.
The max permissible operating temperature of these heaters is 750°C, which means they can reach up to this temperature without damaging the ceramic body or the resistance wire inside.
The average operating life of these heaters is up to 20,000 hours depending on the conditions. This means they can last for a long time without losing their efficiency or performance.
The recommended radiation distance from the heater is 100 mm to 200 mm, which means the heater should be placed at this distance from the target object or surface.
The minimum recommended spacing between elements is 5 mm, which means the heaters should not be placed too close to each other.
The heaters are supplied with 125 mm ceramic beaded power leads, which are insulated wires that connect the heater to the power source.
Some heaters can also be fitted with a reflector, which is a metal casing that reflects the infrared radiation towards the target object or surface. The reflector can increase the efficiency and directionality of the heater.
All of the ceramic heating elements listed here on Under Control are CE and UL-approved, ensuring you get the quality assurance that your business deserves.
How to choose the right ceramic heater for you
Ceramic heaters come in a variety of styles and designs to suit your needs. Typically, you’ll choose between two different sizes: half-size (measuring roughly 125x60mm) and full-size (measuring 245x60mm). Accessories such as ceramic blocks and energy regulators can enhance your experience and ensure you are getting the best out of your heater.
The variety of ceramic heating elements means you are sure to find what you are looking for. Need advice on the best ceramic elements for your business?

How do ceramic heaters work?
Ceramic heaters use electricity to warm the ceramic plate. The heat of the plate then radiates into the desired area, providing a consistent heat. With the right temperature control equipment and accessories attached to the ceramic heater, you can have more precise control over the maximum temperature your heater reaches.
What are the benefits of using ceramics in heating elements?
Ceramic infrared elements operate at the far(long) wave spectrum, this means that the heat they generate is better suited for penetrating surfaces. Unlike shortwave which has a wider curve, long wave has a shorter wave pattern making them easier to be absorbed by surfaces. Being also strong and durable makes them the smart choice for radiant heating elements. The ceramic material is resistant to electrical currents and thermal conductivity, helping the generation and conduction of heat.
Are ceramic heaters efficient?
Ceramic heaters are popular because of their size and portability, but they also offer good energy efficiency at a minimal cost. Capable of reaching high temperatures, both ceramic heaters and quartz heaters are popular within the hospitality and retail industries.
Where are ceramic infrared elements used?
Infrared ceramic heaters are some of the most popular across industries, as they are ideal for heating indoor and outdoor areas, vacuuming and thermoforming, food warming stations, and industrial or commercial space heating.
