Quartz Heating Elements
Quartz heating elements provide short to medium wavelength radiation and are the preferred source of heat when a rapid heater response is needed. They are often seen in thermoforming or vacuum forming applications, similar to size to ceramic infrared heaters and emitters. If you need a smaller heating element capable of a faster heat-up time, you’ll want to choose quartz infrared emitters.
How quartz heaters work for your business
Quartz heating elements are a common type of infrared heater and so are commonly seen in environments where you need to directly heat objects or even keep people warm. They are often seen outside of bars and bars, warming patrons in the outside seating areas. They are extremely useful no matter the size of the environment as the heat is not affected by wind, providing a direct heat source.
As the heating element gets hot, the quartz tube will build up heat and then emit this heat when it reaches a specific temperature. The infrared spectrum of heat produced means that very little of the heat is absorbed by the air, ensuring that the objects and people you wish to target will benefit from this heat source.
Here at Under Control, we stock a range of full-sized and half-sized quartz heating elements for you to choose from. Full-sized quartz heaters are 248x62mm in size, with average surface temperatures varying between 430°C and 770°C depending on the model. The half-sized quartz heating emitters offer an average surface temperature between 500°C and 750°C at just 125x62mm size.
Choosing the quartz heater for you
There are a number of things to consider when choosing the right quartz emitter for your business. First of all, you’ll want to think about the wattages and voltages. Half-sized quartz elements come in 200w, 250w, 325w, and 500w, while full-sized quartz heaters are up to 1000w.
One of the biggest benefits is not only the rapid heat-up time for these heaters but also the fast cool down. With low convection losses and high radiant efficiency, they offer the heating solutions needed in fast cycling environments such as manufacturing or even for outdoor dining.
At Under Control, we offer quantity discount pricing on all of our quartz element heaters. The more units you buy, the greater the discount, with discounts up to 20% when you purchase 51 or more units at a time. Not sure how many you’ll need for your space or whether you should opt for half or full-sized heaters? Contact Under Control today to speak with our honest and professional team.
What are quartz heaters?
Quartz heaters use infrared technology and are comprised of a series of quartz tubes. These tubes run parallel to one another and contain a coiled resistance wire, which heats up. As the wire heats up, the heat is emitted and then absorbed by nearby objects.
How long will a quartz heating element last?
Quartz heating elements are designed to last for a long time, with many expected to deliver between 20,000 and 60,000 hours of running time. This makes them ideal for environments where heating is required on a more immediate basis, as they quickly heat up and cool down.
Is a quartz heater safe to use?
Quartz heaters are a safe option for many commercial and residential settings as they do not burn oxygen. As they use electricity to produce the heat, they don’t release any toxic gases, making them an environmentally-friendly option.
How much power will a quartz heating emitter use?
As quartz infrared heaters work similarly to electric heaters, the amount of energy consumed will depend on the rating. The Under Control quartz heating emitters vary between 200w and 1000w.
