Type FHT Heater


Type FHT Heater - Product Bulletin

The Casso-Solar Technologies’ Infrared Heater Type "FHT" is a self-contained, high temperature furnace heater module, designed for ease of use and installation. The FHT heater maximizes productivity through high energy transfer rates, uniform energy distribution, and accurate process control.

The FHT heater is meant to be used as part of a larger array of FHT heaters to create a furnace-like environment up to 1600°F.  Each module has a total insulation thickness of 6" and an array of modules can be used to create the wall, ceiling, or floor of a furnace without additional insulation. 

Individual modules can be provided with thermocouples or with a sight hole for mounting a pyrometer for temperature control.  Single units can also be designed with multiple zones for when precision control is required. 

Ideal applications for these high temperature furnace heaters include glass bending and firing furnaces.  The self-contained nature of each heater module minimizes costly maintenance as both insulation and heater are easily replaced as a single unit. You can get in touch with our team today for more information on these high temperature furnace heaters.
