A gas infrared heater means energy savings
Adrian Group offers several types of gas infrared heaters. In addition to gas, where the source of the heat is natural gas or propane, there are also electric infrared heaters. The basis of the gas infrared heater are ceramic plates or tubes, which are mounted on a steel frame. The surface of the infrared heater is heated by controlled gas combustion. The radiant energy of an infrared radiator in the form of infrared radiation is converted into heat upon contact with an object in space.
Characteristics of gas infrared heaters.
There are many advantages to using gas infrared heaters. Just as the sun heats the earth, infrared heaters heat people and objects, directly. Heated objects become a heat exchanger, thus ensuring fast heat recovery and greater comfort even at lower ambient temperatures. The result is obviously lower fuel consumption and energy costs. Unlike air heaters, infrared heaters do not blow dirt and dust, on the other hand, creates a quiet and clean environment. They are easy to install and maintain. Infrared heaters can be adapted to different floor plans and types of buildings.
Low intensity tube infrared heaters.
They are also referred to as dark infrared heaters or pressure heaters, tube heaters or radiant heating tubes. Hot flue gases pass inside the tube and heat its surface up to a temperature of maximum 500 ° C. This value is considered low intensity. Gas tube infrared heaters are vented and use fresh air for combustion. They are more suitable for the overall heating of the hall, workshop, sports ground.
High intensity ceramic infrared heaters.
They are sometimes referred to as light infrared heaters or as radiant ceramic infrared heaters or plate heaters or panels. The gas is burned on the surface of the ceramic tile, reaching a surface temperature of up to 1,000 ° C. Direct heating predetermines the use of these infrared heaters. They are especially suitable for open and well-ventilated areas. Gas ceramic infrared heaters are characterized by high flexibility in terms of location. They are suitable mainly for partial heating of smaller areas, but they can also heat entire halls, establishments or gyms.
Advantages of gas infrared heaters.
the average cost savings in their use is 30% compared to the conventional method of heating,
heating takes place at floor level (not ceiling), which is a guarantee of higher user comfort,
the possibility of flexible placement of the infrared heater allows heat concentration where it is most needed,
gas infrared heaters are resistant to damage, easy to maintain and clean,
allow heating of workplaces, halls, warehouses, loading ramps, ie. spaces where it is not possible to achieve an increase in air temperature, due to the large area or very low thermal insulation capacity of the space,
allow heating of parts of the outdoor space such as stadium stands, marketplaces and the like,
in the case of greenhouses, barns and farms, infrared heat brings comfort to animals, warmth to plants and energy savings for operators.
