Optimum IR spectrum

 

optimumirspectrumAs mentioned above, it is very important that a radiant panel produces IR rays at a certain high efficiency rate. However, it is of same importance that most of the rays are in a certain infrared spectrum. CELINE POWER has developed with Japanese and Austrian technicians a special formula for its heating element and a unique reflector technique that 99% of the produced infrared rays are in the optimum IR spectrum.

Here some more background information

Infrared is electromagnetic energy. It is part of the electromagnetic spectrum which is comprised of radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, x-rays, and gamma rays. In the electromagnetic spectrum, infrared falls in between microwaves and visible light waves. Its wavelengths are shorter than microwaves but longer than those of visible light.


 

The prefix infra derives from the Latin word which means below. Thus, infrared means below red, indicating its position in the electromagnetic spectrum. Red is the color of visible light. Infrared is invisible to the human eye.

Also the sun produces many different type of rays (from Microwaves to Visible Light and X-Rays, see graph above). Only rays which fall in a certain spectrum (0.75 to 15 microns) do the heating. These rays are called Infrared Rays (A) Near-, (B) Medium- and (C) Far IR Rays. The best and most efficient spectrum for heating is the C Spectrum (Far IR rays, 6 to 10 microns).

Therefore, it is important that an infrared panel heater produces most of its IR rays in this optimum spectrum. INFRAPOWER panels produce 99,82% of its output in the C-range and more than 90% of it in the optimum spectrum of it (6 to 10 microns, see test report from Seibersdorf Laboratories, Austria).

CELINE POWER reaches this optimum spectrum with a patented formula of a very high grade Carbon Nickel mixture (developed by Austrian technicians) and a Nano Silver conductor (developed by Japanese technicians). All coated by dielectric layer and 100% PE protection. A unique reflector technology emits all IR to one side (no loss to backside, backside gets hot but no IR rays to backside).

Simple Test: Hold hand 2cm behind the panel and you will not feel heat. No IR rays are emitted to the backside through INFRAPOWERs unique reflector technology (optical mirror layer applied).

Another important factor for reaching the optimum IR spectrum is that the heater panel performs at a certain temperature range. The less input power (W) used to achieve this certain surface temperature the better the panel (e.g.: a panel of same size with same surface temperature which use less power is better than a panel which needs more power to achieve the same surface temperature). CELINE POWER panels are exactly in the mentioned temperature range.

Furthermore, it is essential that the heat distribution on the surface is equal. Only an equal heat distribution (surface temperature) guarantees that the total input power (W) is used for working at best performance. Below please see the test results of CELINE POWER.

Converting infrared radiant energy into an image that the human eye can see and understand is the process called thermal imaging. This is achieved with the use of an infrared camera that accurately measures the temperature and translates it into color. Infrared imaging shows the heat distribution of certain bodies. The image below shows the outstanding heat distribution of CELINE POWER radiant panels (Tested with IR thermal camera).
