What Is The Difference Between A Halogen Bulb And An Infrared Quartz Lamp?

Nov. 13, 2019

Automotive halogen lamps are standard lighting fixtures for cars, but many fans or everyone are confusing their bulbs with other light bulbs. I don’t know what advantages it has compared with other bulbs. The difference between halogen bulbs and Infrared Quartz Lamp, we can make a basic understanding and understanding.

Infrared heating lamps are mainly used for industrial heating or drying, such as glass products, metal parts, circuit board packaging, film, etc., as well as other drying, drying and heating. The advantages are clean, no accessories, easy installation, and temperature controllable. Quartz near-infrared and far-infrared lamps use transparent or translucent quartz glass as the lamp envelope to produce near-infrared or far-infrared radiation lines. Double-tube near-infrared lamps can be used on Heidelberg presses.

Halogen Heat Lamp

Halogen Heat Lamp

The biggest difference between a Halogen Heat Lamp and an incandescent lamp is that the glass envelope of the halogen lamp is filled with some halogen gas (usually iodine or bromine). The working principle is: when the filament is heated, the tungsten atom is evaporated and then turned into glass. The tube wall moves, and when approaching the glass tube wall, the tungsten vapor is cooled to about 800 ° C and combined with halogen atoms to form a tungsten halide (tungsten iodide or tungsten bromide). The tungsten halide continues to move toward the center of the glass tube and returns to the oxidized filament. Since the tungsten halide is a very unstable compound, it will be decomposed into halogen vapor and tungsten after heat, so that the tungsten is in the filament. It is deposited on top to make up for the part that is evaporated. Through this regeneration cycle, the service life of the filament is not only greatly extended (almost four times that of incandescent lamps), but also because the filament can work at higher temperatures, resulting in higher brightness, higher color temperature and Higher luminous efficiency.

Since the halogen bulb needs to work at a higher temperature, the ordinary glass envelope will melt and flow at this temperature, so the fused quartz glass is used in the halogen bulb instead of the ordinary glass, because the ordinary glass can block the ultraviolet light, but the quartz Glass can't, so halogen bulbs emit invisible light with ultraviolet light. The two sides of things are fully reflected here: on the one hand, we need to add protective measures to the bulbs to reduce the radiation of ultraviolet rays. On the other hand, we also use UV lamps to treat certain skin diseases or indoors to get sun exposure. To get the bronze skin.

The above is the introduction of Carbon Infrared Emitters suppliers. Everyone knows not only the working principle of halogen lamps, but also the difference between halogen bulbs and infrared quartz lamps. But everyone must understand the service life of automotive halogen lamps. The efficiency of use is greatly improved compared to infrared quartz lamps. This is an important reason for using halogen lamps as car lights.
