The superTube you know, is now extreme!
Get ready for a new standard in IR tube heating for extreme weather, extreme conditions, and extreme environments.

As the need for sustainable energy solutions continues to rise, Schwank is proud to announce the use of EC motors in the latest addition to our superTube infrared tube heating line-up – superTube Extreme Series.

The superTube Extreme Series is available in three models (SST-X, SST-S, SST-Z), offering single-stage and “true” modulating units, and is designed for heating in extreme weather, extreme conditions, and extreme or wet environments.

  • – Fully aluminized unit (SST-X)
  • – Aluminized steel tubes, and a stainless steel burner unit (SST-S)
  • – Complete stainless steel (SST-Z) units* 

Designed for heating in harsh indoor or outdoor conditions, with these key features in mind:

1. Built with EC Motor (ECM) technology. The EC Motor technology gives way for an 85% increase in energy efficiencies throughout a full range of operations and is 2-3x more efficient than standard Shaded Pole or PSC motors. A constant torque EC Motor leads to more robust and stable combustion through the heaters’ entire range of operation and external pressure changes.

2. Burner housing design. Burner housing design provides our Schwank unique latching system for easy access, which offers time savings with LP conversion and simplifies burner service and maintenance. It features a refined shape, and an LED illuminating light, and we have skipped the screws again for this model.

3. True modulation models. superTube modulating models provide whisper-quiet operation and include a custom control board that provides real-time optimization of fuel to air ratio for the perfect combustion through communicating with the EC Motor and modulating gas valve. Temperature swings are eliminated, and ON/OFF cycles are reduced, extending the heating system’s service life. These modulating models are new to our IR tube heater, offering and adapting to the heat demand in the space to maintain a consistent comfort level by truly modulating the heat.
