Selecting HN infrared halogen heaters

HN infrared halogen heaters provide instant direct heat to a target area.  The target area can be an entire building or a smaller area within an otherwise unheated building.

As a guide to selection please follow the following example.

Example

Use infrared halogen heaters to heat a well- insulated community hall 15m long by 6m wide with a mounting height of 3m above floor level.

Step One: Determine the total kW required

This is achieved by multiplying the square meters of floor area by the relevant Watts per square meter figure (see Table 1)

Floor area = 15m x 6m = 90 square meters

Select a figure of 200W per square meter from Table 1 and multiply by the floor area

90 square meters x 200W per square meters = 18,000W (18kW) minimum kW output required

Table 1
W/m² required
Heavy
Work
Light

Spot
Heating
Highly insulated 150 200 250
Insulated 175 225 250
Un-insulated 200 250 275
Light cladding 250 300 300
Badly insulated/damp 300 300 300

Step Two: Select heater outputs and mounting heights

Use Table 2 for heater selection.  To ensure a good coverage we suggest ‘footprints’ are allowed to overlap by 10 to 15%.

Taking the preferred mounting height into consideration, select the model that provides the required kW output using the minimum number of heaters.  Spacing the heaters evenly, plot the ‘footprints’ onto a sketch of the hall to ensure good coverage.

3.0 3.4 3.6 6.7 18.2 3.5 3.3 2.3 7.6
3kW 3.0 3.7 3.6 7.0 19.2 3.5 3.3 2.6 8.6

4.0 4.3 4.5 8.4 28.6 5.0 5.3 3.7 19.6

In this instance we would select 6 x 3kW HN3-30 infrared heaters which can be mounted at 3m above floor level to achieve the following coverage:
