What is Infrared Energy? All objects above absolute zero (- 460° F) emit infrared radiation. The infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum is found between visible light and short radio waves. Infrared radiation is emitted at wavelengths between 0.72 and 1000 microns. However, only the 1 – 10 micron wavelength band is utilized in the vast majority of industrial heating applications (1% of the range).

Useful Equation Weins Displacement Law: µm = C/T –µm = Wavelength of most energetic radiation –T= Absolute Source Temperature –C= 5200 when applied to absolute temperature in Fahrenheit (°F + 460) –C= 2900 when applied to absolute temperature in Centigrade (°C = 273) This equation will calculate the most energetic or peak operating wavelength of the radiant source when operated at a specific temperature. If source temperature = 1500 °F, then µm = 5200/( ) = 2.7 ©2010 Glenro, Inc.Useful Equations 5
One Last Equation Stefan-Boltzmann Law: W = Eσ (T s 4 - T t 4 ) –E = Emissivity Factor (1 for Black Body) –T s = Absolute Temperature of Source –T t = Absolute Temperature of Target –σ= Stefan – Boltzmann Constant = 3.5 x (° F + 460) 4 –W= Watts/in 2 Energy Density or Flux Transferred This equation shows how small changes in source temperature relate to much larger increases in energy transferred. The implication of this Law reveals that a practical limit is quickly reached with respect to industrial heating applications for the kinds of products and materials under consideration for this presentation. As an example, if the source temperature is increased 10% from 1500° F to 1650° F, the energy transferred or flux increases from 51 W/in 2 to 69 W/in 2 or 35%.. ©2010 Glenro, IncUseful Equations 6

Practical Overview of Theory What you should know… –Infrared energy delivered to a product by an industrial heater encompasses a range of wavelengths and temperatures –The physical characteristics of your product will determine the rate at which infrared energy is effectively absorbed. –Almost all products are highly absorptive at more than one wavelength. The Right Approach – Solve for Watt Density & Dwell Time –The key to successfully incorporating infrared energy on a product manufacturing line relates more to watt density and dwell time and less to whether the infrared heater is operating at the peak absorption wavelength of the product. –How aggressively can I heat my product before something bad happens? –How much time is required to transfer the energy I need to get my work done? –These are the questions to answer that will serve you well and ultimately help you produce an acceptable product. ©2010 Glenro, Inc.Practical Overview of Theory 8

Controlling Technologies Open Loop Control Semi-Open Loop Control Closed Loop Control ©2010 Glenro, Inc.Controlling Technologies 13 One of IR heatings biggest advantages over other methods of heat transfer is its ability to transfer significant heat energy in a relative small space. This concentrated energy needs to be controlled accurately for repeatable process results. A radiant heater realizes its full potential for a given application only when the proper controls are utilized. The method of control relates the heater to the application.
Open Loop Control Open Loop Control: These circuits do not use heater or work (product) temperature as a control factor. Instead, control is by manually varying the heater supply voltage. Since there is no corrective feedback from heater temperature or work temperature, open loop control cannot be used where close control of the process is important. Heater Element vs Product Temperature Control : Where either the temperature of the heater or of the work (product) must be the controlling factor, a temperature sensing device must be used. To control by heater temperature, an embedded thermocouple is mounted in a fixed position relative to the heating element. To control by work (product) temperature, a radiation pyrometer or optical pyrometer is used. Each of these devices can be connected in a control loop. ©2010 Glenro, Inc.Open Loop Control 14
