For more than 30 years, KRELUS has been manufacturing custom-made infrared heater systems for a wide range of applications. Areas of particular emphasis include:

  • Coating of textile, film, paper, etc.
  • Embossing calendars
  • Laminating machines
  • Thermoforming
  • Pre-drying and heating equipment

The unique KRELUS technology applies direct radiation from the heat source to the product. A special heater construction is effectively blocking the heat loss to the reverse side. The fast medium-wave KRELUS-IR-heater allows operations with precise temperature control on product surfaces. Due to the very rapid reaction time of these IR-heaters, they can be switched off even for short breaks.

With the optimised emission of the heat energy in the real medium wave range (+/-3μ) – where almost all products have best absorption – the KRELUS-IR-heater is more efficient in comparison to traditional infrared heaters, allowing energy and cost savings.

KRELUS has now extended its range of made-to-measure IR infrared heaters with three standard models. Using identical technology, we are now able to supply the sizes 248mm x 248mm, 123mm x 496mm and 123mm x 248mm. Power densities of 26kW/m² to 40kW/m² are available.

These three new types of module allow individually-controlled radiation zones to be easily constructed to any desired size. These new KRELUS-IR heaters are of course particularly suited for use in thermoforming equipment, and on continuous running lines, to give accurate and consistent temperature profiles.
