Heating System Types
♦ Direct-fired convective systems pass 100% of outside air over a burner that heats the air and discharges it into the factory space, while indirect-fired systems re-circulate 100% of space heated air.
♦ Convective system utilises roof-mounted fan forced heat exchangers that are supplied with steam or very hot water.
♦ Radiant heating systems rely on infrared radiation to heat objects, people and surfaces.
♦ Radiant units are for open areas with high ceilings and in locations where chill temperatures are to be eliminated.
♦ Spot heating radiant units are also available.
♦ In many industrial installations, a convective and a radiant system are used in tandem to create an efficient form of total space heating.
