Infrared heater: Products

Products overview

Infra­red radia­ti­on is a sub-area of the light spec­trum gene­ra­ted by the sun. This type of light, howe­ver, is invi­si­ble to the human eye; it only ser­ves to radia­te heat. This means that infra­red rays, respon­si­ble for the human sen­sa­ti­on of heat, are posi­ti­ve rays and can­not be com­pa­red with UV or micro­wa­ve radia­ti­on or with X-rays.

Owing to their vary­ing wav­elengths and resul­ting mode of action, a dis­tinc­tion is drawn bet­ween three types of infra­red rays:

Infrared-A, short wave

  • 780 – 1.400 nm (0,8 – 1,4 µ) 3620 K – 2070 K

Infrared-B, medium-wave

  • 1.400 – 3.000 nm (1,4 – 3 µ) 2070 K – 965 K

Infrared-C, long-wave

  • 3.000 – 10.000 nm (3 – 10 µ) 965 K – 290 K

Basi­cal­ly, it’s like this: the shorter the wav­elength, the easier it is to pene­tra­te the air. Short-wave infra­red gene­ra­tes heat by hea­ting the solid that it meets with, wit­hout hea­ting the air around it. A good examp­le for this mode of action is the effect that occurs when a per­son walks out of the shade into the sun­light. Alt­hough the ambi­ent tem­pe­ra­tu­re remains the same, they feel the tem­pe­ra­tu­re as con­si­der­a­b­ly war­mer under direct solar radia­ti­on. This phe­no­me­non also allows you to sun­ba­the on your ski­ing holi­day at very low ambi­ent tem­pe­ra­tures.

Long-wave infra­red rays, on the other hand, do not have this effect; rather, they warm the sur­roun­ding air and thus take con­si­der­a­b­ly lon­ger until a fee­ling of warmth sets in.
