FRMW (Fast-Response Medium Wave) IR Lamps
for Industrial Infrared Heaters
Fast-Response Medium Wave infrared lamps fill a gap in the market place for higher wattage at medium wavelengths. As their name suggests, FRMW lamps heat up and cool down faster than other medium wavelength lamps, which can take between 10-45 seconds to reach full emitting power. They are an excellent and more cost effective alternative to carbon filament lamps.
FRMW infrared lamps are a good fit in infrared drying applications because medium wave infrared lamps generate the bulk of their energy between 2-3.5 microns, where water has an excellent absorption peak. While shortwave heaters are often used for deep penetration, medium wave is often needed for surface heating of thin films, drying inks, adhesives, & paint, and the curing of many polymers.
FRMW IR lamps utilize a quartz tube with a special helical wound tungsten or large cylindrical filament with a unique coiling technique that allows more energy to be distributed in the medium wave length range. They are available in various custom lengths, and with a variety of endcaps and coatings.
