Infrared heat sources for heating and industrial processing

Victory infrared lamps are naturally a key component of heater fittings, but they are also important in many industrial manufacturing processes, such as PET manufacture, curing of coatings, forming of plastics, annealing, plastic welding, and print drying. In these applications, infrared heat sources are far more efficient than convection ovens or contact heating.

Efficiency is achieved by matching the wavelength of the infrared heater to the absorption characteristics of the material and broadly IR heat sources are categorised Short, Medium or Long wave. Additionally, Victory lamps have a range of finishes to suit their application. These include:


The standard IR lamp; a bare, uncoated lamp, that optimises infrared output. Also emits warm white light


A quartz sleeve is applied to the lamp for additional safety. They are ideal for catering purposes.

Neutral Density

A neutral density sleeve is applied to the lamp, reducing glare. These lamps look orange when lit and are often used in churches.


These lamps have a white ceramic coating allowing the majority of the heat to be projected forward. Reflector lamps > See also Victory LRP replacement lamps: Don’t throw away reflectors >


These lamps have a frosted finish, reducing glare.


These must be used when lamps need to be lit in a vertical position e.g. paint drying.

Quartz Infrared Modules

The Victory infrared quartz medium wave module range comprises five modules to suit different fitments, and spans wattages from 150–1250W. There is thus a module to suit a wide range of industrial applications
