Solaronics manufactures and strategically places tube infrared heaters in an aircraft hangar. Aircraft hangars contain large quantities of air that need to be heated. Opening of the large doors allows for massive cold air infiltration, therefore, it is fairly inefficient to heat these spaces with a forced air heater.
Low Intensity Infrared Heaters For Hangars
Solaronics low intensity tube heaters offer a great solution because the heat it generates is stored in the floors, lower walls and the surrounding objects. Acting as heat exchangers, this stored heat energy warms the space as cold air rushes in, providing instant heat recovery within the hangar. Heater ventilation is commonly performed by directly venting through a sidewall or roof.
High Intensity Infrared Heaters For Hangars
For high bay hangars, high intensity heaters may be used. Installation is typically cheaper than compared to tube heaters and less roof penetrations are required. Ventilation of high intensity infrared heaters may be accomplished through the building’s natural or mechanical ventilation system. High intensity heaters can be rigidly mounted or hung by chain.
High bay heights are common in airplane hangar applications. Acute attention to idle aircraft positioning is needed for proper heater placement. These overhead heaters are suitable for use in aircraft hangars when installed in accordance with the Standard on Aircraft Hangars, ANSI /NFPA 409-latest edition, and are so marked. Heater’s clearance to combustibles must be maintained to avoid damaging the topsides of aircraft.
