MICOR *KIR infrared tube emitters

With our infrared tube emitters, you can succeed in reducing drying and heating distances and thus optimise your production processes sustainably. The reflector geometry that we have specially developed ensures substantial energy savings and thus leads to more economic efficiency in production processes.

Our custom-designed infrared tube emitters transfer the energy as pure infrared radiation without any direct contact to the product to be heated/dried – in a temperature range of 25-1,000°C. The intensity of the infrared radiation can be flexibly defined at any time via the applied voltage and changes in distance to the object.

MICOR infrared tube emitters: Full performance at the touch of a button.

Thanks to extremely short response times, the full power of our tube emitters is available to you in less than a second. Our elliptical tube emitters bundle 98% of the infrared rays on a 4mm heat tube – and are therefore highly efficient. The gold-coated reflectors also direct the radiation to such a concentrated level that we achieve optimum reflection properties for short-wave infrared light.

MICOR infrared tube emitters: Custom-tailored solutions for your business!

Our tube emitters can be individually adjusted according to your needs, without any loss of time; they feature a space-saving design and are tailored to your unique requirements and circumstances. Each infrared tube emitter can be integrated into your existing systems.

Benefits of MICOR infrared tube emitters

  • Superior drying speeds through maximum heat transfer
  • Loss-free heat supply and high energy efficiency thanks to gold reflectors
  • Extremely short response times due to full performance in under one second
  • Precise heating due to exact focal line
  • Tailored to specific requirements through infinitely variable regulation of the infrared tube emitters
  • Maximum product quality through homogeneous infrared and uniform drying
