  • A Contest Among Heaters - Ceramic Vs. Infrared

    Radiant Gas Heaters I have been considering purchasing a space heater for next winter. My room was extremely cold this past winter and I figure a heater will make my living conditions more comfortable. There are two different space heaters I need to consider before I make my decision. There are ceramic heaters which warm entire areas and infrared space heaters that direct infrared heat to one particular area. My room is pretty small so I'm not sure if one is better over the other. Depending on your home and...

  • Far Infrared Heaters: The Sauna Treatment

    Radiant Gas Heaters Far infrared heaters are an up and coming style of infrared heaters. Producing long wave radiation instead of the short wave radiation emitted by most radiant heaters, far infrared heaters do not become hot to the touch, which is beneficial on numerous levels. Because the low watt ceramic panels do not heat up, there is no emission from dust or chemical residue that may fall on the surface of the infrared heater. Therefore it is a perfect style of space heater for those with intense allergies. Far...

  • The Marvelous Space Heater

    Radiant Gas Heaters The charm of hardwood floors and fancy molding in the corners of the ceilings lured me into renting an apartment in a historical district last year. When winter hit though, I was no longer bewitched by my quaint home; my heat bill was through the roof and my apartment always seemed to be freezing. That was when I discovered and fell in love with infrared space heaters. Portable and affordable, I was able to buy one and carry it around to whatever room I was in, staying...

  • Radiant Gas Heaters: Country Living

    When one lives too far out in the country or woods to have electric heat, they basically have two options; a wood burning stove, which would require hand-feeding wood into the stove every three to four hours or a radiant gas heater. As charming as the idea of a wood burning stove is, practically speaking the radiant gas heater is the obvious choice. Able to heat a space in a uniform pattern without the annoyance of air molecules carrying it around, this heater radiates its warmth much like the sun...

Industry Information

Radiant Gas Heaters

Radiant gas heaters are a type of infrared heater that efficiently heat spaces, materials and objects. To work, they enlist the help of invisible infrared light, known more commonly as electromagnetic radiation, which they generate from a natural gas flame or propane. This electromagnetic radiation produces long waves near the border of visible section of the electromagnetic spectrum. These waves, called infrared heat waves, emit a huge amount of heat. Using both radiation and electricity, radiant gas heaters are known to heat objects and spaces with extreme uniformity and rapidity. Radiant gas heaters can be found benefiting applications in a variety of industrial, commercial and residential settings. In the industrial world, radiant gas heaters can assist the progress of processes including: plastic welding, plastic heating before forming, plastic shrinking, the drying of coatings, glass heat treating and processing, metal heat treating and processing, general heating and curing. Commercially, radiant gas heaters can be used as heaters for rooms of various sizes and they can be used to help with cooking. In a residential setting, radiant gas heaters can be used in space heaters and for cooking.

Radiant heaters typically consist of combination of a heating element, a reflective shield and a radiating tube. Heating elements are those devices that convert the heat energy from the gas flame into infrared electromagnetic radiation. These elements usually come in the form of wire. In this case, manufacturers usually use coiled wire, as it increases the surface area reached and increases electrical resistance, which is required to make heat. Usually, the heating element is made from tungsten wire, but it may be made from other elements and alloys, including carbon, aluminum, iron alloys, chromium, nichrome, kanthal and cupronickel. Nichrome, also known as chromel, is a mixture of nickel and chrome, with the dominant element being nickel. It exhibits high levels of resistance and the first time it is heated, it forms an adherent layer of chromium oxide. This layer later serves the heating element well, preventing the material beneath it from oxidizing and deteriorating faster. “Kanthal” refers to an entire class of alloys. Alloys in this class are highly resistive and are composed primarily of iron, chromium and aluminum. Cupronickel, also known as copper-nickel, is another resistive wire. This alloy is composed of, as its name suggests, copper and nickel. Next, reflective shields to help direct the infrared heat waves they produce, thus eliminating the need for an addition medium, such as air molecules, to create a roadway to objects and surfaces. It is because of this aspect of radiant gas heater operation that radiant gas heaters are able to saturate and properly heat gases, liquids and solid materials with such efficiency. They work far better than traditional convection heaters, which do not penetrate surfaces with nearly as much ease, and they exhibit superior effectiveness as compared to UV lamps; UV lamps cannot properly heat an object unless light waves are present. Heating elements are contained within a tube, which helps direct the infrared energy generated by the heater as a whole. Because the heating elements of radiant gas heaters are so often encased within a radiating tube made of metal, ceramic material or glass, gas heaters are also frequently known as tube heaters.

In addition to the essential features, some manufacturers may choose to equip radiant gas heaters with additional accessories and coatings. These include weatherproof finishings and/or materials that promote corrosion resistance, temperature detectors, cooling options that allow for heater use with cryogenic applications and fans that contribute to the redistribution of air molecules and accelerated distribution of heat around a room.

A radiant gas heater is an excellent investment for a number of reasons. For one, radiant gas heaters are highly efficient in both speed and energy usage. Not only does this save an operator time and money, but it takes less of a toll on the earth. In other words, radiant gas heaters may be considered “green,” or environmentally sustainable, especially when compared to less environmentally friendly heating mechanisms, such as regular forced air heaters, convection heaters and UV lamps. In another reference to their efficiency, because infrared light generates an immediate reaction and source of heat when a heater is turned on, users of radiant gas heaters do not have to suffer the usual lag experienced between the moment when a heater is turned on and the moment when the heat is first felt. Another major advantage of radiant gas heaters is the fact that, instead of merely heating air molecules, they heat surfaces and objects directly. This is especially useful for outdoor applications, where the air molecules are at the mercy of wind, rain and other whims of the weather.
