The Industrial Heating Equipment Association’s (IHEA) Infrared Equipment Division (IRED) recently completed revisions to its popular Infrared Process Heating Handbook for Industrial Applications. This quick introduction to the many applications of infrared heating in industrial processes has been updated to include new technical information, additional application examples, and new case studies. Learn how infrared heating has been successfully applied to hundreds of different process heating applications, such as curing metal finishes and protective coatings; fusing thermoset and thermoplastic powder coatings; forming molded plastics; bonding adhesives and metals; drying papers, inks and fabrics; and processing foods.

IRED chairman Scott Bishop comments, “After eight years from the publication of the second edition Infrared Process Heating Handbook, IRED decided it was time to review and update the publication. In this edition you will find three major updates:

  • Fresh, new case studies and infrared process heating examples categorized by industrial segments.
  • A revamped section on controls and how they can be implemented using infrared process heaters.
  • Better quality pictures and charts/graphs to enhance the reader’s knowledge. “

Bishop continues, “I would personally like to thank all the contributors for their hard work and diligent efforts that went into creating this new edition of the handbook.”  The IHEA member companies that contributed to the revisions and updates for the 3rd edition of the handbook include Alabama Power Company, Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), Fostoria Process Equipment – a div. of TPI Corp., Gefran Inc., Georgia Power Company, Heraeus Noblelight America LLC, and Selas Heat Technology Co. LLC.

The 3rd edition of the Infrared Process Heating Handbook for Industrial Applications is now available in the IHEA bookstore, www.ihea.org/store .  The cost is $20 for members and $40 for non-members.
