IR Gas Catalytic Drying: timeenergy saving, environment respect, custom- engineered solutions and high quality results.

The introduction of infrared and gas catalytic drying to the collision repair market has revolutionized the industry. Infrared heat technology works by transmitting electromagnetic waves that generate heat inside the product.

In fact, it is no longer necessary to heat hundreds of cubic meters of air, but the layer of paint can be dried directly. Unlike convection, which first heats the air to transmit energy to the part, IR energy can be absorbed directly by the coating. It can also be reflected or transmitted to the substrate.

GTD catalytic systems release water vapour and carbon dioxide during flameless combustion, they do not produce CO (carbon monoxide) and NOx (nitrogen oxides). Moreover, they abate VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) with consequent reduction of toxic emissions at global level. Using a propriety platinum based catalyst, the products of combustion are extremely environmentally friendly.
The GTD catalytic heater is a diffusion type heater, that operates on a chemical oxidation reduction process that reduces the methane or propane gas in the presence of platinum and oxygen, into moisture, carbon dioxide, and produces IR energy from this reaction. The catalytic reaction requires that the catalyst be at a temperature of 90°C. This is achieved from an electrical preheat element that is activated for about 12 minutes. The gas enters the heater panel and is evenly dispersed through a plenum chamber within the heater. The gas is then distributed into the hot catalyst where it reacts with the platinum in the presence of air. There is no flame with the reaction of gas. As such these heaters are approved for heating hazardous areas.
The wave spectrum directly penetrates the molecule of any paint product instantly bringing cross-linking in a few minutes. The catalytic chemical reaction takes place in total absence of flame, in total safety for human health, even if the panel should enter accidentally into contact with liquids or solvents commonly used in the body shop, as the spontaneous combustion with minimum emissions of CO2. The system passes natural methane gas through a noble metals catalyst, which then separates the carbon and hydrogen atoms to create energy. That energy is then passed through the front of the catalyst where it mixes with oxygen; the oxygen combines with carbon molecules to create CO2 and with hydrogen to make H2O. The end result is infrared energy that is emitted out of the device.
