Aerospace & Military Infrared Radiant Heater Applications
With Schwank IR heating solutions
The use of infrared radiant heaters has been shown to reduce the cost of heating aircraft hangars. In particular, high intensity IR heaters provide increased thermal comfort for personnel while substantially reducing heating costs.
Warm air rises to the ceiling and cold air infiltrates through open areas. Therefore, opening doors [depending on the level of winds] can cause an air change of 1.0 in only 30 seconds.
A large airplane parked outside at a very low temperature acts as an enormous air conditioner when pulled into the hangar for service.
Warm air units require close to 30 minutes in order to stabilize comfort temperature to previous levels. High-efficiency Schwank heaters require less units to provide a desirable comfort level.
