Type T3 lamps utilize a low mass tungsten filament to provide a high temperature source that responds rapidly to voltage changes, thereby allowing precise control in steady-state or dynamic situations.
Lamps are hermetically sealed and filled with an inert gas. The temperature of a T3 lamp operating at full voltage is approximately 4000ºF making its peak energy wavelength 1.15 microns.
These lamps are available in several standard lengths with a wattage rating of 100 watts per linear inch.

For your convenience, the wattage and voltage of every Fostoria infrared lamp can be found on one ceramic end cap, and the part number can be found on the opposite end cap.
This information is used to ensure accuracy when ordering replacement elements for your infrared oven system or equipment.
FOSTORIA GLARE-REDUCING RUBY RED SLEEVES
Optional Ruby Red Vycor Sleeves are available forall quartz lamps. Sleeves easily slide over the lamp to filter out over 90% of the visible light (the lamps will glow red), yet allow over 90% of the infrared energy to pass through and effectively heat the intended area.
