Solaronics Suntube Gas Infrared Tube Heater

Product Announcement from Solaronics, Inc.

Solaronics Suntube Gas Infrared Tube Heater-Image

Solaronics Suntube IV Versamount Heavy Duty Gas-Fired Infrared Radiant Tube Heaters are proven single-stage heaters ready to be installed. Save up to 75% in energy costs over conventional warm air systems.

Ruggedly constructed, the Suntube IV Versamount heaters use 12 gauge black steel heat exchangers to provide heat transfer efficiency, long system life and are twice the thickness of industry norm 16 gauge. Tackles your toughest heating challenges. Models available with gas inputs from 40,000 to 200,000 BTU/hour and radiant tube lengths from 10 to 70 feet. Heater controls are isolated from combustion air for their protection.

Infrared radiant heat is absorbed by the floor and other objects in view of the heater's heat exchanger, and is not absorbed by the air. This allows use of a lower thermostat setting yet increases personal comfort when compared with forced air heat so that money is saved on the heating bill. The energy efficiency of these heaters makes them a good choice for a green building.

Suntube IV Versamount heaters energy efficiency, safety, and durability make them an excellent choice for heating commercial, industrial and agricultural buildings.
