High Intensity Infrared Heater

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

When properly applied, high intensity infrared 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.

Solaronics gas fired infrared K-Series ceramic heaters are available in many different input capacities.  Our CSA International Designed Certified to ANSI/CGA Standards heater capacities range from 30,000 to 200,000 BTUH and are certified for operation on natural gas or propane. 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.
