Industrial Infrared Heating Solutions

For specialist applications and materials testing, Ceramicx has the in-house capabilities to build custom-designed industrial infrared ovens and heating solutions to almost any design and specification.

Drawing on a wealth of in-house knowledge and experience in application engineering and heatwork development, each oven is built to precise customer requirements. Each oven or system can be produced to sit within any existing frameworks or as complete, standalone systems capable of integrating into other machinery.

The choice of short, medium, or long wavelengths for any custom oven or heating system will be dependant on your chosen application process. The installed power is always specified to our rule of ‘as much as necessary, as little as possible’.

We also keep the entire infrared process under one roof. That way, we’re able to give you an end to end service that takes care of your own unique oven, from modular, precision solutions to custom-built, high temperature ovens for specialist testing.

These case studies are examples of what we have done in the past to give you a better idea of what we can do for you.

  • MSE look to infrared to overcome system inefficiencies

    A key part of our recommendation was that their state-of-the-art machinery should be fitted with arrays of industry standard ceramic, square hollow elements (SFEH). With a flat body, these particular elements have a much shorter heat up time, increased energy efficiency, and have the ability to produce a diffused, radiant output-to-target distance.
