Helios Quartz is worldide leader for the manufacturing of IR Quartz Emitters in single and twin tube, in short, medium and fast medium wavelenght for Industrial Applications.
Helios Quartz products are widely used in Paper & Printing Industry as they cover all the most complex needs in terms of drying solutions. Below some of the most common fields of application.
In the production of paper, a mixture of fibers and water is sprayed uniformly on a net mesh conveyor belt. The usage of IR emitters combined with traditional vapor heated rollers is suggested in order to optimize the process by facilitating the uniformity of the moisture level required thus avoiding large variations in the humidity of the product.
The heating by the Infrared Quartz emitters allows the ink to penetrate into the paper more quickly.
Infrared technology can be used with almost all conventional printing inks (water based and solvent base), since the infrared radiations reduces significantly the viscosity of the inks and facilitates a quick fixing on the paper.
The usage of IR emitters takes great quality advantages in printing processes and it is mainly valued for almost all multi-color machines/applications, except those designed for UV curing, for which, of course, it is required the UV technology.
