Solaira quartz electric commercial Infrared patio heaters utilize the latest in quartz infrared technology that provides a unique means of instant and directional radiant heat. This comfort patio heat is based on the same natural effect that the sun provides, warming people and objects and not the air in between. Within seconds of switching on, heat output is at 85% radiant efficiency making Solaira economical, efficient and effective.
Quartz heating is a type of radiant heating, commonly referred to as short wave infrared heating. Radiant heating uses infrared waves to directly heat the surfaces of objects. All objects emit and absorb infrared heat, which is part of the electromagnetic spectrum with a frequency below visible light. Hotter objects will radiate more of this heat. This is the basis of the technology for most quartz heaters.
S-Wave high intensity low light radiant heat produced by Solaira, like sunshine, gives warmth you can feel the instant the heaters are switched on. Consider a cool cloudy day that becomes instantly warm when the clouds move and you are in full sunshine. The air temperature did not change but what you are feeling is the shortwave infrared produced by the sun...like Solaira Heaters. This shortwave infrared IS NOT DANGEROUS ULTRAVIOLET (UV) as this is another part of the spectral wavelength produced by the sun.
Solaira S-Wave low glare quartz halogen emitters lamps consist of a tungsten filament heated by the passage of an electric current to a temperature of 2400º Kelvin. At this temperature, most of the output (emission) is in the short wave infra-red band (1.2 microns). However, as with all tungsten filament lamps, the tungsten will evaporate in time and deposit itself on the wall of the lamp. To prevent this undesirable effect a small amount of halogen gas is added to the envelope of the lamp and hence a process of re-composition takes place as the tungsten evaporates it will combine with the halogen gas to form tungsten halide and so prevent the tungsten being deposited on the wall of the lamp. The tungsten halide will recombine with the filament releasing the halogen and re-depositing the tungsten on the filament. This process is a continuous one and is known as the halogen cycle.
