Halogen IR Ovens- Available in Portable, Closed Batch and Open Tunnels configurations.
The Halogen element is the most energy efficient heat source available. It reaches full operating temperature in one second and can be used in any type of drying or forming process. Used in HalCon tunnels, they can operate in both medium wave heat and short wave heat and are also used to generate convection heat. These tunnels use 50% less power to operate then a gas systems and are environmentally friendly with zero carbon emissions. From the manufacturing perspective, they reduce cure times which allows for higher productivity, reduce the amount of floor space needed for better facility utilization, reduce heat in the factory for a much better employee working environment and are safer than any gas system in that the element is sealed and does not need oxygen to operate.
The HalCon tunnel uses a PLC for all tunnel operations and has the ability to communicate with our optional PowerCarts to operate the heat program best suited for the product the PowerCart is carrying.
The HalCon tunnel can also be used with new water based UV coatings to speed up the cure process. These UV coatings are green certified, environmentally friendly and offer the highest durability of any coating.
