-- Definition, Working and Types of Infrared Heaters
What is Infrared?
Infrared is an electromagnetic radiation discovered by William Herschel, a famous astronomer in 1800. Infrared is an energy or radiation that is used in scientific, industrial as well as in medical applications. William Herschel discovered this invisible electromagnetic energy where invisible radiation through wavelengths is extended from red light edge of the visible spectrum with an effect on the thermometer. There are three regions where infrared range is usually divided. They are:
1. Near-infrared wavelength that is near the visible spectrum.
2. Middle infrared wavelength that ranges between 0.78 to about 2.5 micrometers.
3. Far infrared wavelength that ranges between 2.5 to about 50 micrometers.
The radiation that is emitted by heated surface is infrared, which forms a spectrum.
What are infrared heaters?
Infrared heaters are heat lamps where energy is transferred from a higher body to a lower body through electronic magnetic radiation. The wavelengths of the infrared radiation ranges from 780 nm to 1mm, depending on the emitting body temperature. There is hardly any contact between the two bodies for energy transfer. There are also three regions where infrared range is usually divided. They are:
1. Near-infrared are also called short wave that ranges between 780nm to 1400 nm, that is near the visible spectrum and very little light is emitted.
2. Wavelength that ranges between 0.78 to about 2.5 micrometers.
3. Middle- infrared that ranges between 2.5 to about 50 micrometers.
Infrared heaters result in heating floors, walls or even to warm humans without actually heating the surface first. Infrared heating helps to heat with the help of thermal energy.
How do infrared heaters work?
Infrared heaters are used to transfer heat through radiation, conduction, re-radiation and convection. When infrared heaters are used in closed space, the objects in that space, absorbs the energy that is emitted. After the energy is absorbed it is converted into heat which changes the air and makes it warm. Infrared heating system emulates radiant energy that converts the air into heat and all the objects in its path absorb the heat. This energy re-radiates and warms the air surrounding the objects. Infrared heating system or heaters as we can term it heats the floor and not the ceiling.
Some infrared heaters can directly heat the space or the objects with the help of infrared light, which emits heat directly to the object, room or the surrounding space. Some heaters also contain infrared bulbs or a copper metal conductor or a fan that helps to heat the object and space. The fan will blow the air and warm the objects, floors, walls and not the ceiling.
Types of Infrared Heaters
Depending on the wavelengths the infrared heaters emits- the near or short wave infrared, the medium infrared or the far infrared, the heaters are classified. The different types of infrared heaters are natural gas infrared heaters, electric infrared heaters, propane infrared heaters, portable infrared heaters, high intensity infrared heaters, low intensity infrared heaters, ceramic infrared heaters, etc.
