We offer ceramic radiant heaters and infra-red radiant tubes
About infrared heating
Dear reader, imagine the speed of light, and that heat is transferred at such a speed. That’s how the sun heats up. The SBC and SBT gas infrared heaters manufactured by us also heat that way. Infrared radiation is the transmission of energy. Why is it economical? Imagine now a cloudy day in the winter and an air temperature of -5C, it is quite cold. When the sun comes out from the clouds outside the afternoon it will get a lot warmer. The air temperature will not rise quickly, it will still be -5C, while our feeling of heat, i.e. thermal comfort, will improve significantly. This is how gas radiators work, they allow for thermal comfort at a much lower air temperature, which means much less gas consumption, especially in tall buildings.
Infrared radiation is the emission of electromagnetic waves with a length of 780 nanometers to 1 millimeter. In the case of radiation heating, objects under the SBC or SBT gas heater are heated. So they don’t heat the air directly, but the earth’s surface. The heated surface of the earth gives off heat to the air by convection. Similarly, gas radiators heat people under gas radiators. They allow spot heating of individual places in large rooms. A gas heater literally delivers heat at the speed of light.
Next to it, the photo shows an example of heating an industrial factory with SBC ceramic gas radiators. By upgrading the factory’s heating with Sun Beam gas heaters, the facility user saves 70% on heating bills per year. An investment in a radiant heating system will pay for itself within 3 years. Gas radiators are powered by natural gas and have zone heating. This means that they can be turned off in a part of the building, and the rest can be heated.
Advantages of radiant heating
- Infrared heating heats people, floor and objects. Does not heat air. The air is reheated by convection and conduction from heated floors and objects.
- Gas fired radiant heaters have very low NOX and CO values in the exhaust gas
Zone heating. They can work in zones when it is not necessary to heat the entire surface of the building.
Reduced air movement. Unlike gas heaters, their operation does not cause forced air movement
Reduced gas consumption. Thanks to the use of gas heaters, savings range from 20 to 50% compared to heating with gas heaters. Depending on the building height. The higher the building, the greater the savings.
