Inferno iR70 Infrared Industrial Heater
NEW & IMPROVED DESIGN
New to the Jefferson heater range is the Inferno iR70 infrared heater. This clean burning unit operates on either, diesel, kerosene or paraffin, and is suitable for well ventilated indoor applications. It produces 70,000 Btu, and contains a 15 litre tank which allows approximately 7 hours running time, making this a very economical unit.
What is Infrared Heating? The ultimate infrared heater is the sun, which generates infrared heat through combustion of gases. This infrared energy passes directly through space to warm the surface of the earth. So even on a cold day, objects and people are warmed by the heat radiated by the sun even though the surrounding air may be cold. Similarly, infrared heaters act like mini suns because they burn a fuel to generate heat. The heat produced radiates downward warming objects such as the floor, machinery, tools and building components, as well as people in the room. How does it work? The hot temperatures generated by burning fuel inside the unit, heat either a steel tube (tube heater) or ceramic surface (luminous heater) within the heater. The heat from this surface is then emitted in the form of infrared radiant energy. Reflectors direct the infrared radiant energy downward to ultimately warm the floor and objects below it
