INFRARED TUBE HEATERS
A.
Design and Performance:
1.
Reflector Design: Reflector shall be 10-sided reflector design reflecting virtually 100% of the infrared energy out and away from the emitter tubes. Reflector shall be "Deep Dish: design with emitter tubes fully recessed within reflector.. Reflectors shall have a minimum 10 reflective surfaces. Reflectors with fewer surfaces allow energy to bounce back to the main heat exchanger tubing, and shall not be allowed. Reflector end caps shall be factory provided as standard and shall be fitted to the end of each reflector run to minimize convective heat loss. Reflectors shall provide a distribution pattern of 90 degrees inclusive beneath the heater. When called for in the Contract Documents and specifications, directing of radiant pattern outside the standard distribution patter shall be accomplished through use of side shields or bottom shields only. Tipped reflectors increase the convective loss of the heater and shall not be allowed, unless called for in the Contract documents.
2.
Heat Uniformity: Burner shall distribute hot gases evenly along the length of the emitter tubes.
3.
Serviceability: Burner shall be located outside of the air stream. Service and diagnostic control checks shall be possible with the blower fan running. Controls shall be proven name brand supported manufacturer.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** The Modulus (Model AM) Heavy duty industrial/commercial infrared heater featuring the best overall performance in the industry automatically adjusts air and gas to properly regulate the temperature in a given space through a patent applied for technology. It has up to 40% modulating differential, the largest in the industry. While many other units require a complicated interface, the Modulus has a direct analog signal, meaning no interface. The controls are simple, effective and non-proprietary. The Modulus reads the room and adjusts itself accordingly, it is not pre programmed. This creates a level output of energy, rather than coming on strong, shutting down, and then coming on again. This steady stream of energy is what creates energy efficiency and eliminates temperature dips and rises. This improves thermal efficiencies in excess of 80%, resulting in optimal performance and fuel savings. Natural gas or LPG. Delete if not required.
