Heidelberg Twin Tube (IR) Lamps

Twin Tube IR Lamp

There are three common types of twin tube IR lamps used in Heidelberg dryers: Short wave, Fast-response medium wave and standard medium wave lamps. Short wave and fast-response medium wave lamps are characterized by a flat pinched seal at the ends (left picture), while standard medium wave lamps are not sealed (right picture).  Many systems use a mix of types.  All three are constructed from two tubes fused together to make a single lamp. The gold coating on the back of the lamp reflects the heat onto the paper for maximum efficiency.

Twin tube lamps come in a variety of voltages and wattages, and may be heated in both sides (channels) wired in series or parallel, or heated in one channel, with the other used for a return wire.
