IR Modules and Systems

Helios Quartz for over 70 years has been specialized in the manufacturing of IR quartz emitters (in short, medium and fast medium wavelenght) and in the production of Infrared Modules and Systems for industrial heating processes.

The IR modules manufactured by Helios Quartz are:

  • completely cabled,
  • equipped with thermal sensor for high temperature,
  • already prepared to accommodate Helios infrared quartz emitters,
  • already prepared to accommodate Helios quartz protection plates.


Helios Quartz, working together with customers, customizes the modules design according to the specific requirements of the applications and provides costumers Infrared heating modules and control systems suitable to be fitted up to new and existing lines.

In order to test different materials and to offer the best solution according to customer’s specification, Helios Quartz established a specialized Infrared Technical Center equipped with a cutting-edge Testing Machine capable of testing the behaviour of all kind of materials subjected to infrared radiation.

Helios Quartz specialists at the Infrared Technical Center are able to provide the customers with accurate information about:

  • the difference and the benefits of IR technology compared to traditional heating systems;
  • the most suitable wavelength for the specific material;
  • how the IR radiation affects the material;
  • how the IR system can be adjusted in the existing line;
  • how IR technology optimizes production efficiency.

IR Quartz Emitters in Printing Industry

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.
