Pipes heated to an average temperature between 150 ° C and 250 ° C emit infrared rays that heat the environment without creating air movement.
The heat production necessary for heating the gas radiant tubes takes place thanks to a modulating blown air burner.
The heat exchange of the combustion chamber with the fluid present in the pipes is ensured by the continuous recirculation of the fluid by means of a centrifugal fan.
WHAT IS INFRARED RADIATION?
Infrared radiation is also referred to as thermal radiation, as our body perceives it in the form of heat. Infrared radiation is a natural radiation that we can encounter every day in many different forms: as the sun emits infrared radiation and heats the earth, all more or less hot bodies emit infrared radiation. The term “infrared”, that is lower than red, indicates that its frequency is immediately below that of the red color of visible light. In practice, every body emits radiation in this band, if its temperature is above absolute zero (the temperature of 0 K (Kelvin) equal to -273.15 ° C). The higher the body temperature, the higher its emission of heat and therefore infrared radiation.
HOW DO INFRARED WAVES HEAT?
Infrared waves move easily in air and space, producing heat only when they hit an object, such as the surface of the earth or the wall of a house. When the radiation emitted by an infrared ray system hits an object (walls, floors, internal objects), the rays generate the movement of the affected molecules, which begin to oscillate. The energy continues to be absorbed by the molecules of that object until the oscillation of the same reaches the frequency of the radiation itself. At this point the radiation is reflected. The person perceives these fluctuations as a condition of warmth. The first reaction that occurs upon entering a room heated with infrared radiation is comfort.
