Solar Products V-Series Vs. The Competition
A Head-To-Head Comparison
Pompton Lakes, NJ August, 2007

Fast-responding, medium-wavelength, infrared panel heaters using stamped serpentine elements have been used in industry for decades. In traditional construction, the flat elements are held against a refractory board by manually inserted pins. Solar Products Inc. has developed a unique V-shaped element which provides numerous performance improvements over conventional stamped element heaters including the following:
  • Reduced thermal back-losses
  • Higher watt density
  • More robust construction
  • More freely radiating design
  • Longer life
  • Elimination of hot spots
  • Improved heating uniformity
  • Lower cost


According to Paul Ross, VP of Product Development “…Solar Products didn’t invent the stamped element heater, but we certainly perfected it…”

Recently, Solar Products pitted their V Series heater against the competition in a head-to-head comparison.

Solar Products built a V series heater to closely match a sample heater from a leading competitor. Both heaters were 4.25” x 13.75” with (2) elements of 11” heated length. The competition used 0.135” thick elements and Solar used its’ closest match, 0.139” thick. To compensate for the slight difference in resistance, the voltage was adjusted so that each heater produced the same total wattage of 1,481W
