The second edition of the "Infrared Process Heating for Industrial Applications Handbook" now is on sale through the Industrial Heating Equipment Association. The publication is produced by the Infrared Equipment Division of IHEA.

The handbook provides a quick introduction to the many applications of infrared heating in industrial processes.
