When deciding between convection and infrared heat processing equipment, it is important to consider the benefits of infrared.
When making a decision about what type of heat processing equipment is needed for a particular application, you may want to evaluate both convection and infrared heat processing equipment. Within reason, hot air (convection) is hot air. When thinking about infrared heating, remember that there are several different types of infrared heaters (and both electrically powered and gas fueled). Electric emitters include:
