Infrared Tube Heater Components

Understanding each part and its significance  

Each part of the infrared heating system plays an important role in the overall operation. From the burner box to the vent cap and everything in between, learn more about each component and its importance. With each infrared tube heater, standard accessories are available to help the infrared tube heater distribute heat more evenly or redirect the heat to certain areas below the heater.
