Gas-fired, low-intensity radiant (infrared)
heating systems have proven their effectiveness in duplicating the principle of
the sun's heat. Radiant heating systems have been used in commercial
greenhouses effectively and efficiently for many years. Some growers
have found that infrared heating systems exceeded their expectations and proved
beneficial in many ways for a variety of greenhouse crops.
The Burner-in-Series type of
gas-fired, low-intensity radiant heaters are most suitable for greenhouse
installations requiring even heating. Burners-in-Series heating systems have
multiple burners along the length of a heat exchanger tube. The burners are
incrementally spaced along the heat exchanger tube to allow the heat exchanger
tube to be reheated before surface temperatures cool. This type of radiant
heating system offers heat distribution far beyond the capabilities of unitary
heaters or high-intensity heaters. Overall heater lengths can be much longer and
system shape is custom engineered to fit the greenhouse type. Multiple burners
are vented through a single pump allowing fewer venting penetrations.
