The Scorpion® III Still Has the Best Heating Pattern Of Any Heat Lamp!
The Scorpion® III heats two litters with only one bulb. Unlike other heat lamps with a circular heating pattern, this lamp provides a rectangular heating pattern without hot spots. When mounted on the divider panel, the Scorpion® III will not heat the sow, preventing burned udders. The sow is more comfortable, resulting in increased milk production.
The three-way switch provides precise comfort control and reduces energy consumption to less than 63 watts per side during warmer weather or as piglets get older. The Scorpion® III has an easy-mount clamping system that attaches securely to the divider in seconds.
- 115 volt
- Three wire
- 9' grounded cord for added safety
Bulbs are not included, see QC #260500.
Note: For use with 7/8" and thinner plastic dividers.

not the most durable
metal needs to be heavier gauge, the bulbs go out easily, socket assembly needs replaced often,have not needed to replace any switches yet, been in use for 2 years. the screws will fall out that holds the socket assembly. this is a below avg. heat lamp for quality.
otherwise could be a great heat lamp.
I have used these for years and never had any issues.
Work well but have some issues
Work very well for warmth and comfort of the piglets. However, switches go bad easily and units get extremely hot. Lightweight but would sacrifice some additional weight for a sturdier heat lamp. Overall very good lamp but need TLC for long term use.
Good but lots of maintenance
These heat lamps work good, but require a lot of maintenance. The sockets go bad and need replaced. The switches also have a tendency to go out. The screws that hold the sockets in place seem to rust badly, therefore you can not take them out to replace. The good thing about them is you can use 1 for 2 farrowing crates.
Needs to be tougher
They work great but do not hold up to any kind of heavy use. Need more repair parts available. The housing that the switch mount in is what breaks more than anything
