Portable 230V 3000w infra red heater

hc3000p portable infra red heater

The HC3000P 3000w portable infra red heater, is a lightweight (6Kg) compact heater that is easily moved from place to place. It plugs into a standard UK 13A 230V 3 pin socket (BS1363) to provide instant heating in commercial and industrial buildings such as trade counters, workshops, factories, warehouses, etc.

Unlike portable quartz halogen heaters it doesn't emit a bright harsh glare (it doesn't produce any visible light at all!). Making it perfect for photographic studios, production areas where accurate colour rendering is important, or just where the glare of halogen tubes would be irritating.

The HS3000P produces a focused beam of infra red heat which directly heats the people and objects it strikes, without heating the surrounding air. Making it an economical way to heat workers in large, open, or drafty areas.

Safety Features

To minimise the risk of fire, the HS3000P will only operate when it is in an upright position. If it is knocked over, or used at an angle, twin built in tilt switches will immediately turn the heater off.

To protect users from burns the heater has bright metal finger guards fitted in front of the ceramic emitters. If animals or children are present we recommend the use of a fire guard.

Infra red ceramic emitters

Ceramic infra red emitters are better suited to portable heaters than quartz halogen glass lamps:

  • Ceramic emitters, can withstand the knocks, vibration, and splashes that portable heaters inevitably suffer. Unlike quartz halogen glass lamps , they will not shatter and are far less likely to break.
  • The lifespan of ceramic emitters is measured in years, while an infra red lamp typically lasts 5000 hours.
  • They emit medium wave infra red which is does not feel as fierce as the short wave infra red produced by quartz halogen lamps.
