Unitube Heater

Unitube Heater

The Unitube heater can be tuned to match the peak consumption point of the material being heated over the usable wavelength range of 2.4-6.0 microns, with emitter temperatures of up to 1800°F

The Unitube provides energy efficiencies of up to 80%, drastically reducing electrical power consumption over competitive tubular heaters.

Unitubes can be arranged to provide temperature profiling, or can be shut down to conserve energy with narrow width products.

Unitubes can be mounted together to form banks; prewired into single or multiple zones.

Supply and exhaust air systems can be provided for moisture removal or use in solvent environments.

Design Flexibility

Unitubes can be mounted together to form banks; prewired into single or multiple zones. Supply and exhaust air systems can be provided for moisture removal.

Sturdy Construction

A heavy walled, 5/8” diameter, quartz tube is used in the Unitube construction, making the heater one of the strongest of its kind.
