Radiant Tubes | Where Can I Find Radiant Tubes?

The performance of a heating system depends not only on the furnace burner but also on radiant tubes. These tubes are used to transfer heat to the load through irradiation. One place where you can find them is in radiant panel heating. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of radiant tubes in radiant panel heating as well as where you can find radiant tubes.

Easily Zoned

Many radiant panel heating systems are designed for room-by-room zoning. This not only offers the potential for energy savings, it also allows different occupants to adjust rooms to their own desired comfort level.

Damage Resistant

Tubing or wiring encased in concrete floors is very resistant to damage from heavy interior traffic. Likewise, heated ceilings are typically “above the fray” and thus less likely to be damaged by normal building usage.

Virtually Noise-Free

Properly designed and installed systems eliminate expansion noise, sheet metal vibration, or velocity noises caused by fast moving air.

Fast Drying

Not only does this improve safety, it also provides much better working conditions for those who routinely work on or near wet floors, especially in facilities such as auto service garages and fire stations.

What Are Radiant Tubes?

If you have a project that requires parts to function in extreme heat above 1,200 °F (670 °C), you need a heat resistant casting. It’s important to know, however, that all heat resistant products are not the same. There are countless factors that go into deciding which component is best for your specific industry and need. Radiant tubes are one of the many types of heat resistant products. Keep reading to find out if it can benefit your project!

What are Radiant Tubes?

The performance of a heating system depends not only on the furnace burner, but also on the radiant tubes. The aim of the radiant tubes is to transfer heat to the load through irradiation. Heat exchange occurs when the combustion fumes are generated by the burner and then are conveyed through the tube. Various sizes and shapes of different heat resistant materials are used for these tubes depending on the specific need, service temperature, and furnace atmosphere. 

Why are They Used?

Regardless of their shape or size, they are used to ensure no contact between the flames from the burner and the material in the furnace occurs. Radiant tubes are also used because they are able to reach process temperatures up to 2000 °F (1200 °C) and maintain temperature uniformity.

What are their Applications?

Radiant tubes are normally used in applications that require the furnace atmosphere to remain stable and without any chemical changes. Specific industries that often require radiant tubes include the steel industry, chemical industry, and ceramic industry.
