Herschel IRP4 Advantage Space Heating
2600Watts Powered by Cermacx
The Advantage IRP4 Industrial heater consists of 4 high-emission ceramic heating elements mounted in a directional reflective unit. It is designed to gently warm people indoors using infrared radiated heat. Infrared heat is emitted from the hot surface of the ceramic heaters and warms the body directly without heating the air in between. As soon as the heater is switched on the ceramic elements start to warm up and full operating temperature is achieved in less than 10 minutes. As the energy produced is all in the low medium to far infrared region (not visible), there is no light emitted from the heater, but elements can produce a very faint orange glow. The Herschel IR must be located in a position to allow for proper and efficient use but one that ensures hot parts are not touched accidentally. The unit is designed to be mounted or suspended from a ceiling. The recommended height for the mounting is 2.8m to 3.5m (137”-158”) from ground level and a minimum 125mm from the ceiling and 1.5m from the nearest wall. The heating elements are at a fixed downward angle to ensure maximum heat arc from this installation height. The Herschel IRP4 MUST NOT be installed at a height of less than 2.8m (137”). Consideration should be given to any temporary or occasional additions such as stages or platforms, and the height should be adjusted accordingly. The Herschel IRP4 should be firmly and permanently attached to the ceiling directly via its own brackets or via appropriate suspension cables.
We recommend the Advantage IRP4 Heater for Industrial and Workshop space heating applications. This ceiling-mounted unit is designed for spaces providing adequate clearance from the ground (2.8 – 3.5m) and from the ceiling above (minimum 125mm) and from the nearest wall (minimum 1.5m). With input power requirements of 2600 watts, these low watt-density heaters give a far higher equivalent heat output compared with hot air or gas-burning “space ray” type heating systems or other forms of electric heating often used in these environments. There are additional benefits:
Space heating can be used anywhere there is a requirement to heat a large volume and where the heaters themselves can be placed well out of reach. So workplaces like workshops, industrial or commercial units, warehouses etc make ideal locations for heaters of this sort.
