Description

The Advantage IRP4 Industrial heater consists of 4 high-emission ceramic heating elements mounted in a directional reflective unit.

Available in voltages: 230-240v only.

It is designed to gently warm people indoors using infrared radiated heat. Infrared heat is emitted from the hot surface of the ceramic heaters and warms the body directly without heating the air in between. As soon as the heater is switched on the ceramic elements start to warm up and full operating temperature is achieved in less than 10 minutes. As the energy produced is all in the low medium to far infrared region (not visible), there is no light emitted from the heater, but elements can produce a very faint orange glow.

The IRP4 must be located in a position to allow proper and efficient use but one that ensures hot parts are not touched accidentally. The recommended installation height of the IRP4 is 2.5m to 3m (98”-118”) from the floor and under no circumstances is it to be installed at less than 1.8m (71”) from the floor.  In all cases it should be installed at a height where it cannot be touched in operation.  Consideration should be given to any temporary or occasional additions such as stages or platforms, and the height should be adjusted accordingly. Minimum distance from a wall is 1.5m (59″).

The Herschel IRP4 should be firmly and permanently attached using the brackets provided with a minimum clearance of 125mm (4.9”) between the top surface of the heater and the ceiling. Brackets must be attached to a solid surface capable of supporting the weight of the heater (11.3kg).

Functional Description

We recommend the Advantage IRP4 Heater for Industrial and Workshop space heating applications. This ceiling-mounted unit is designed for spaces providing adequate clearance from the ground (2.5 – 3m) and from the ceiling above (minimum 125mm) and from the nearest wall (minimum 1.5m). With input power requirements of 2600 watts, these low watt-density heaters give a far higher equivalent heat output compared with hot air or gas-burning “space ray” type heating systems or other forms of electric heating often used in these environments. There are additional benefits:

  • As there are no exhaust emissions there is no requirement for planning;
  • They operate silently and without fumes – consequently raising no health and safety issues;
  • Installation is much cheaper than oil or gas alternatives – all you require is electric cable;
  • No maintenance. You do not have to maintain an infrared heater once installed;
  • You can “focus” the heat exactly to where you want it – because there is no convection of heat, none is wasted blowing into areas it is not wanted;
  • Far Infrared has been shown to have positive effects on metabolism, being the waveband at which water (80% constituent of skin) most effectively absorbs heat.

Space heating can be used anywhere there is a requirement to heat a large volume and where the heaters themselves can be placed well out of reach. So workplaces like workshops, industrial or commercial units, warehouses etc make ideal locations for heaters of this sort.

Element: 4 x White glazed ceramic longwave Infrared emitters (3-10 microns)

Body: Stainless Steel body with protective grill.

Voltage: 120v 60Hz; 230v 50 Hz Ensure supply voltage does not exceed 245 volts.

Protection: IP rating IP20

Guarantee: 5 years

Heated Zone: 12-21m2

The IRP4 will directly warm people and objects within the heated zone of c.12m2. If high levels of comfort are required, heaters will need to be located to overlap zones in order to remove cold spots between zones. Air movement such as that from shutter doors, high ceiling heights or large volumes of cold air adjacent to the heated zone will reduce the area covered/temperatures that can be achieved.
Within enclosed areas the thermal mass of the building will be heated which may increase the ambient temperatures for an area of up to 21m2 per heater. The extent to which the ambient temperatures can be raised and the required running time of the heaters to achieve this will be dependent upon the property construction, age, insulation levels and cubic volume, the external temperature and local climatic conditions.
For larger commercial projects or where different mounting heights are required we would always recommend Herschel carry out a survey or desktop assessment.

3 reviews for Industrial Heater – Herschel Advantage IRP4

  1. We are renovating a 16th Century building to be used as an extended Box-Office in South Street St Andrews. Due to the lack of space or existing heating we were looking for a space saving & energy efficient solution. After a long and fruitless search all other solutions appeared to be either too large or inefficient. When we saw Herschel on line we knew we had found the solution. Your advice was timely and efficient and you were a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. The units arrived well within time and were stunning. The online pictures are good but the real thing is so much better. Staff and Clients talk about these units and seem surprised that they are heaters as the elegance and size is deceptive. Recommending these units is a given for the theatre, they make up-holding the 5 Star status that bit easier as well as holding to budgets a breeze.

  2. Although [Site1] has a bigger floor area than [Site2] it is currently costing less in electricity despite longer operating hours and higher turnover and my monthly direct debit has recently been reduced since our original estimate. Part of this saving will be due to the lower heating costs.
    Mainly I am pleased to report that ambient temperature has never been a concern at any point since the thermostats were programmed. There is really no ‘management’ for me or my staff to do. The system works for itself and we do not have to do anything. Suffice to say that we have had no input into the system since it was set up and the store has been comfortably heated throughout that time.

  3. You wouldn’t believe the difference it’s made…as certainly makes it comfortable for the team to work whilst based in that area!
