"Oldie" but "Goodie"

In 1958, Glenro entered the infrared market with its Ceramic Face Electric Infrared Heater. Today, this heater continues to support our sensible approach to solving many demanding industrial heating applications by replacing less efficient and less reliable, cast ceramic, Calrod® and quartz tube reflector housed emitters.        


It provides our customers with a more energy efficient and more uniform radiant heat source. It also eliminates several maintenance headaches the other style heaters bring on after put into use.




Uniformity –

ü      No spaces between emitters.

ü      The entire surface area of the radiating face is available to transfer energy to your product.

ü      The heaters replace the space a reflector housing takes up with a uniform radiating surface.

Efficiency –

ü      No reflectors. It is never dependent on the cleanliness of a reflector to retransmit at least ½ of its energy in the right direction.

ü      The insulated design minimizes radiant losses, delivering more energy to the product.

ü      The heaters can also be positioned much closer to the products they are designed to heat, eliminating radiant losses to the surroundings and delivering more of the available energy to the product.

Maintenance –

ü      The heater does not require cleaning. The radiating face is self-cleaning.

ü      The heating element is located behind the ceramic radiating face; it is not exposed and it is free to thermally expand and contract.

ü      There are no quartz tubes, cast ceramic housings or sheath type elements to crack or break when you run them a bit harder and hotter.

ü      There are no reflector housings to clean.

ü      There are no exposed terminal connections to corrode. The competitive heaters mentioned have to include or add “moisture resistant terminal housings”.

ü      Proper protection of the terminals come standard.

ü      The competitors would like to position you to buy new after each and every failure…

ü      Or to buy new when you get tired of cleaning the reflectors…

ü      Or to buy new when the terminal connections get corroded.

ü      Our heater can be repaired. Keep a spare in house and send the failed heater back to us so that we can fix it for you.

So, What does it Cost?  About the Same!

You will find that there are several choices of heaters to select from; each with a unique amount of insulation, ranging from 2.5” thick to 6” thick. 

There is also a wide array of power densities to choose from; ranging from 500 Watts per square feet to 2000 Watts per square feet. 

This design flexibility allows us to “redesign” your heating approach so that the cost to replace an existing bank of cast ceramic, Calrod® or quartz tube reflector housed heaters becomes cost competitive while bringing with it much more value.

Contact Us today to learn more about this alternative. You will find that we understand the limitations and the frustrations of using inexpensive and/or disposable infrared heaters to heat larger areas. We have a more sensible and economical solution for your application.
