Infrared waves, or infrared light, can be found between microwaves and the visible light portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.
The human eye encounters infrared light every day without ever realizing. We cannot see infrared waves; however, we can feel the heat that infrared waves emit. There are three general types of infrared waves: short, medium and long. The heat produced from IR waves is instant and transferred directly from source to subject, with little heat loss or wasted energy.
Infrared heat is versatile, clean, safe and precise, therefore making it an important component in many different industrial manufacturing processes. Incorporating direct radiant heat from an infrared industrial oven can increase productivity, reduce maintenance costs, energy costs and down time.
The Fostoria Division of TPI Corporation has a long history of designing and manufacturing electric infrared oven systems, spanning over eight decades. We invite you to schedule a consultation with one of our application engineers to learn more about the benefits of incorporating infrared technology into your business.
