High intensity infrared tower. (Equipment).

This high intensity infrared tower uses short wave infrared heaters An infrared heater is a body with a higher temperature which transfers energy to a body with a lower temperature through electromagnetic radiation. Depending on the temperature of the emitting body, the wavelength of the infrared radiation ranges from 780 nm to 1 mm.  and a drive system to cure silicone tubing at adjustable rates Adjustable rate

Applies mainly to convertible securities. Refers to interest rate or dividend that is adjusted periodically, usually according to a standard market rate outside the control of the bank or savings institution, such as that prevailing on Treasury bonds or notes.

 wheel pulls the extrusion from the die up through the heaters. The intense (91.2 kW), focused, infrared heat is said to ensure that the tubing reaches green strength quickly, which maintains the desired diameter and wall thickness of the extrusion. The system features two high intensity Radround infrared heaters which consist of rapid-response T3 lamps. In addition to delivering intense heat in a short distance, the heaters are ready for product processing almost immediately on power-up and cool so quickly that the product is not damaged when the line stops, according to according to
