Heating Solutions

The right solution for every task

We have copied the principle of Schwank infrared heating systems from nature: The sun's heat rays penetrate the air without heating it and only release their heat energy when they hit surfaces. Schwank infrared heaters use the same natural technology to heat halls in an energy-saving way. The advantage is that the heat is generated exactly where it is needed. The surfaces absorb the heat energy and release it back into the environment. The result is a balanced microclimate of air and radiant heat.

The efficient way of heating

Heat rays of the Schwank infrared heating systems travel through the air in the building with nearly no losses. The rays fall on the surfaces in the building and the air is heated only indirectly. This principle helps the Schwank infrared systems to save energy costs. Scientific studies prove that a reduction of air temperature by 1°C corresponds to a reduction in energy costs by 7%.

Heating takes place where it is required

Hot air rises upwards. This effect is known as thermal stratification and is the essential reason that warm air units, for instance, operate significantly less efficiently than the Schwank infrared systems. They ensure that the expensively heated air is not fed into the common area of the employees, but rises beneath the ceiling. The heat becomes noticeable at ground level only when the majority of air in the building is heated. The Schwank heating systems work much more effectively. The heat rays travel through the air and fall on the surfaces at the ground level, where they are required. The air itself is heated only indirectly. Thermal stratification is therefore suppressed.

Preventing heat losses

The higher the temperature difference between two mediums, the stronger is their effort to offset this difference. This effect is known as transmission. This also applies to the balance between the room temperature [TA] on the one hand and the outdoor temperature [TB] on the other. Owing to the targeted infrared radiation of the Schwank heating systems, the building envelope does not get heated unnecessarily; the difference between the temperature of the outdoor air and room air is therefore kept very low. Transmission losses are therefore minimised.

Short reaction and heating times

In contrast to central heating systems with heat transfer mediums such as water, the decentralised infrared systems by Schwank generate heat where it is required. The advantages are obvious: The transport of heat from a centralised boiler to the operation site is omitted, thereby reducing the reaction and heating times. As a result, operating times of the heating system are minimised.

No distribution and transmission losses

Transport and transmission losses arise in central heating systems due to long transport routes from the heat generators to the required site and to additional transmission stations. On the other hand, the decentralised infrared heaters by Schwank convert the used primary energy into heat directly at the required site. Losses that occur due to the transport or transmission of the generated heat are therefore completely eliminated.

Heating takes place only where it is required

The Schwank infrared systems can be used to heat sections of the building or even individual workstations. Just like light, the infrared heaters can be switched on and off without distributing the heat in the entire room. This ensures requirement-based heating depending on the building usage, shift times, or other similar factors. In this way, the solutions by Schwank actively spare operating costs since the most economical heating system is the one that is switched off.
