High-Intensity Ceramic Infrared Heater

For Performance, Reliability, and Value, Solaronics High-Intensity Ceramic Heaters Provide Energy Efficient Total Building Heating Solutions.

When properly applied, high-intensity ceramic heaters are designed to produce heat evenly across the surface of a large space. The ceramic burning surface of the high-intensity infrared heater has the capability to reach temperatures of 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. Highly polished reflectors allow for infrared energy to be directed anywhere heat is needed. High-intensity infrared heaters are also known as ceramic heaters, luminous heaters, spot heaters, and box heaters. There are several different types of high-intensity infrared heaters manufactured to accommodate specific applications.

Solaronics gas-fired infrared 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.
