Infrared Drying Ovens

As the name suggests, industrial infrared drying ovens are designed to remove moisture, water, or other fluids from any material or object. Depending on your chosen process and production needs, a Ceramicx custom-made infrared heating system can meet every drying demand.

Whether a standalone conveyor oven or multiple-zone heating system for optimised drying efficiency, our infrared heat engineers can plan, design, configure, and build a heating solution that gives you precision accuracy and control.

Leading the advanced development of infrared heat technology, Ceramicx are manufacturers and global suppliers of bespoke industrial infrared drying ovens. Suitable for a range of processes and production needs, each system is custom-built and configured to individual specifications and uses our own industry-standard infrared heating elements and components to meet every drying and curing demand.

Whether a standalone infrared drying oven or multiple-zone heating system for optimised drying efficiency, Ceramicx infrared heat engineers can plan, design, configure, and build a heating solution that gives you precision accuracy and control.

From physical size and shape to precision temperature control, power requirements and constraints, and process demands, Ceramicx engineers use your own specifications to manufacture a unique heating solution that works for your chosen processes.

A stainless steel structure with multiple heater access points and polished aluminium reflectors provides the durable framework for every custom-built infrared drying oven or system. Key system and safety features are all bespoke, added to match your requirements, together with any additional features you need.

Arrays of high quality, industry standard Ceramicx infrared heater elements give the uniform heat distribution needed for any process with the advantage of rapid-response heating and increased energy-efficiency. Together with complete custom controls or plug and play systems, a bespoke Ceramicx infrared drying oven will improve your productivity as well as reducing any downtime. Bespoke infrared drying ovens can include:

Industrial Infrared Drying Ovens

  • Ceramic Infrared Panels for a Consistent Drying Process

    To keep their current processes up to date, the customer needed specialist panels to ensure a consistent heat coverage that would match previous iterations of their older and outdated heaters.
