I see you and I are not going to get along. I also see a lot of other members falling out with you over quite a few of your views.
You are denying that these lamps don't give off visible light, when they clearly do. You've seen them being used in catering to keep food hot (the industry they're designed for) and in farming to keep chicks warm (another industry) ,and you invite people to use them in their homes. Really?
I'm not going to rise to you - beyond ignoring you.
Read these forums, see how outdated your views are, then start bringing your thoughts and suggestions up to date.
Read what forums?
Are you ignoring science?
Just because something is used in an industry do not make it dangerus, think 3D-printers or elements (or whatever you can think of that is used on macro/micro scales).
IR is just radiation (electromagnetic radiation just like light but different wavelength), heat lamps are used by veterinarians and you seem to seem to neglect this.
A heat lamp
is an incandescent light bulb
that is used for the principal purpose of creating heat. The spectrum of black-body radiation
emitted by the lamp is shifted to produce more infrared light
. Many heat lamps include a red filter to minimize the amount of visible light emitted. Heat lamps often include an internal reflector.
Heat lamps are commonly used in shower and bathrooms to warm bathers and in food-preparation areas of restaurants to keep food warm before serving. They are also commonly used for animal husbandry
. Lights used for poultry are often called brooding lamps. Aside from young birds, other types of animals which can benefit from heat lamps include reptiles
, and the young of some mammals
The sockets used for heat lamps are usually ceramic
because plastic sockets can melt or burn when exposed to the large amount of waste heat produced by the lamps, especially when operated in the "base up" position. The shroud or hood of the lamp is generally metal. There may be a wire guard over the front of the shroud, to prevent touching the hot surface of the bulb.
Ordinary household white incandescent bulbs can also be used as heat lamps
, but red and blue bulbs are sold for use in brood lamps and reptile lamps. 250-watt
heat lamps are commonly packaged in the "R40" (5" reflector lamp) form factor with an intermediate screw base.
Heat lamps can be used as a medical treatment to provide dry heat when other treatments are ineffective or impractical.
Ceramic infrared heat systems
Ceramic infrared heating elements are used in a diverse range of industrial processes where long wave infrared radiation is required. Their useful wavelength range is 2–10 μm. They are often used in the area of animal/pet healthcare too. The ceramic infrared heaters (emitters) are manufactured with three basic emitter faces: trough (concave), flat, and bulb or Edison screw element for normal installation via an E27 ceramic lamp holder.
