Superior Radiant Products Ltd.: Gas-Fired Infrared Tube Heaters
October 10, 2011
Two models of two-stage gas-fired infrared tube heaters offer choice in selecting a tube heater for a specific application. Series TA/TX/TXR tube heaters are designed for heavy-duty commercial and industrial use. They are available in rates from 40,000 to 220,000 Btuh. Two gas options are available: natural gas and LPG. The lengths of the tube heaters range from 10 to 70 feet. The jetstream burner design maximizes radiant output and is combined with 100 percent efficient parabolic aluminum reflectors to provide optimal energy efficiency and comfort. The Series LT/LTX/LTXR two-stage infrared heaters are designed for low-clearance applications. According to the manufacturer, the principal advantage is the softening of the radiant output over a much longer length of tube with an end-to-end variance of less than 15 percent and remarkable bottom clearance of only 36 inches. The tube heaters are available in rates from 40,000 to 100,000 Btuh, lengths from 30 to 50 feet, and natural gas or LPG. All the two-stage units include a high-low output capability, allowing for quicker recovery on the high fire and economical steady operation on the low fire.
