Infra-red heat that is produced by the burner must be directed into the space to be heated. High intensity units are AGA and CGA design certified to be mounted horizontally or at an angle up to 30° These attitudes plus a standard, shallow, straight sided reflector insures that infra-red output is not directed to the walls. The standard reflector reduces dispersion to the sides and produces a conical spread of approximately 90°. A parabolic reflector extension may be added to the standard reflector to produce a deep (concentrating) reflector. The extension is used for concentrating infra-red energy usually for spot heating or higher mounting height applications.
Solaronics gas fired infra-red K-Series heaters are designed to save fuel in manufacturing facilities, warehouses, airports, hangars and other buildings. They are especially suited in spaces with high negative or positive pressures. A wide range of BTUH inputs enables the specifier to select the best heater for a particular application, whether a modern, low-ceiling, well-insulated building or an older, poorly insulated one with high bays.
Solaronics gas fired infra-red K-Series heaters are available in many different input capacities. American Gas Association and Canadian Gas Association certified heater capacities range from 30,000 to 200,000 BTUH and are certified for operation on Natural or Propane gas. Four different control arrangements feature 100% safety shut-off; 120V and 25V direct spark; Millivolt operation; 25V direct spark 2-Stage; and 1/2″ EPT gas inlet.
