Star Progetti Industrial Infrared Heater

Star Progetti have been at the forefront of infrared heater manufacturing since 1994 and continue to invest time and money into research and development of infrared technology. The Helios IRK infrared range provides optimum heating solutions for many industries and applications.

Infrared heaters provide local warming and unlike conventional fan and convection heaters, they only heat the area you require, reducing energy waste and saving you money. Robust and rugged in construction, Star Progetti heaters are designed for use in the most harsh industrial environments.The Helios Radiant  EHSAFE model is ATEX certified for use in explosive atmospheres. 

Newly launched ATEX infrared heater - Star Progetti EHSAFE 15 & EHSAFE 20

ATEX Infrared Heater Star Progetti EHSAFEStar Progetti have recently launched the EHSAFE ATEX infrared heater. Available in 1.5KW and 2KW versions, the heater is ATEX certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. Unlike other ATEX certified heaters which usually heat by convection, the EHSAFE provides shortwave infrared heat and local warming. A single heater can be used for areas up to 20m² and provides a much more energy and cost efficient way of heating hazardous areas. The heater is IP66 rated so can even be used outdoors for spot heating.      .

Infrared Heating Design Service

As with all process and industrial heating applications, it is important that heat loss calculations are carried out and the correct heating solution is specified for your application. T&D use the latest computer technology to calculate the heating requirement and KW rating. The positioning of industrial Infrared heaters is also important to ensure the maximum heat area and desired temperature is achieved.
