HEATERS

From the start Gasolec aimed for heating with Infrared Radiant Gas Heaters that produce a high ratio of Infrared radiation, artificial suns.

These Heaters offer the users many advantages compared to alternative heating systems:

  • Better growth of the animals
  • Shorter preheating before the animals arrive
  • Lower investment costs
  • Creates comfort zones
  • No air flow that can dry out the animals
  • Allows heating of areas with poor insulation and/or no walls
  • Operating without noise
  • All heat produced stays in the room
  • The infrared radiation is aimed at the floor and the animals on the floor
  • This leads to a high efficiency => lower CO₂ output

Over the years Gasolec developed a portfolio with 3 different types of Infrared Radiant Gas Heaters, each type can be delivered in different capacities.

An important consideration when selecting the right heater is the adjustability of the heating capacity of the heaters. In the table below the M-types show larger gas pressure variation options than the S-types.

The data plus the pictures below give a short summary of the characteristics of these heaters. More detailed information can be found with the various types.

G12ASCO 12 kW 28 28 25, 28
G12MAXI 12 kW 28 28 25, 28
G12E 12 kW 28 28 25, 28

Gas consumption for 1 kW: 1kW = 866kcal = 3460BTU/h
I3P / G30 72 gram of Propane/h
I2E / G20 0.090m³/h of Natural Gas High
I2L / G25 0.108m³/h of Natural Gas Low

The Maximum Capacity is reached at the maximum gas pressure
The Capacity decreases when the gas pressure is lowered
