Glo-Ring® Infrared Heat Tools
- How do I know if my Glo-Ring elements are intermittent or continuous?
- There is an ink stamp on the white porcelain part by the bottom of the Glo-Ring® element. The numbers will vary depending on size and voltage but continuous element numbers end in a T and intermittent element numbers end in an H.
- What is the lifespan of Glo-Ring Elements?
- Glo-Ring Elements are like a light bulb. They can last years before they burn out, however dropping, banging, and bumping the elements significantly decrease the element life. Intermittent elements should not be left on for longer than a two minute duration or it will shorten their life.
- Is there a relationship between the number on the dial on the single and triple element Glo-ring to the actual temperature in the center of the element?
- NO, the Element wattage has a 5% tolerance. This will vary the temperature from set to set.
- What is the difference between Models LH115 and LH100?
- The LH115 comes with a variable heat control to adjust the temperature.
Tips and Facts:
- Most elements are available in intermittent and continuously rated duty cycles.
- Intermittent elements heat up quicker and get hotter than continuous elements.
- Continuous elements MUST be used if unit is to remain continuously on for more than 2 minutes.
- Intermittent elements should not be left on continuously for more than 2 minutes.
- Continuous elements MUST be used on the Single and Triple Element Bench Glo-Ring units because the elements stay on regardless of whether they are open or closed.
- The Glo-Ring elements emit a medium infrared wavelength.
- No Radio Frequency interference is generated with the Glo-Rings.
- The Single Element Bench Glo-Ring comes with a foot pedal, while it is optional for the Triple Element Bench Glo-Ring.
