Reduced Thermal Back Losses & Increased Radiant Efficiency

( V Series v.s. Pinned Elements )

With both heaters operating at the same wattage for the same period of time, a thermal imaging camera from Electrophysics was used to capture an image of the back side of the heaters.

In thermal imaging, the hottest temperature is represented by the brightest color. The images clearly show how much more heat is lost to the back side of the heater via conduction along the numerous element-retaining pins.

The elimination of heat-conducting pins is one giant step in reducing back losses. Another giant step is the use of 2” of insulation behind the board which is standard construction for the Solar Products V Series heaters and is not even offered by the competition. The combination of these two factors gives the V series greatly reduced back losses and therefore, increased radiant efficiency.
