How to optimize thermal comfort in industrial warehouses with radiant strips


Optimizing Thermal Comfort in Industrial Warehouses with Radiant Tubes

Radiant tubes provide a concrete solution by combining performance, savings, and environmental respect to meet the heating needs of large productive and industrial spaces, where managing temperature regulation has always been a significant challenge due to the vast areas that need heating.

In such environments, it is essential to implement efficient heating and air conditioning systems to ensure optimal thermal comfort without wasting energy. This is crucial not only to keep operational costs low but also to ensure the well-being of workers.

Among the most innovative and energy-efficient solutions, radiant heating with radiant tubes is increasingly becoming an effective alternative to traditional heating systems. This technology boasts a series of benefits that positively impact energy performance, productivity, and the environmental footprint of companies that choose it for heating.

Advantages of Radiant Heating

Energy Efficiency

One of the main advantages of this type of heating is its ability to reduce energy consumption. For the same amount of heat provided, radiant heating systems consume less energy compared to traditional technologies, thus helping to minimize the management costs of industrial and commercial establishments. Additionally, the technology used avoids the heat losses typical of other systems, especially in environments with significant heights.

Eco-Friendliness

Another distinctive aspect of radiant heating is its eco-compatibility. This technology, with its low consumption and reduced emissions, is one of the most sustainable and ecological methods for heating industrial and commercial environments. It also stands out for its ability to keep the air cleaner, avoiding the circulation and suspension of dust particles.

This contributes to creating a healthier work environment, reducing health risks for both personnel and livestock in agricultural settings. Furthermore, as a technology that directly heats bodies rather than the air, radiant heating keeps the air cooler compared to other methods, avoiding excessive dryness, which can be uncomfortable and harmful.

Improved Air Quality

Radiant heating systems, by directly heating bodies instead of the air, become valuable allies in maintaining cooler and cleaner air. They avoid the circulation and suspension of dust and the excessive dryness of the air, factors that can create a microclimate that is at least uncomfortable, if not harmful, for the health of workers. Using our TUB•ONE® gas radiant tubes can be considered a particularly effective solution in this regard.

This system, capable of heating only partial areas of the warehouse, further optimizes fuel consumption, a necessary characteristic for maximizing energy efficiency and reducing operational costs.

TUB-ONE® Radiant Heating System

TUB-ONE® is an autonomous, independent, and much more economical system compared to traditional hot water or hot air systems. It does not require the construction of a boiler room, the installation of a boiler, or any modifications to the hydraulic circuit. These factors make it a modern, efficient, and quick-to-install heating solution, thanks to the special modular HTSG SYSTEM patented by Impresind, which allows pipe sliding without pushing and moving elements anchored to the building, thus avoiding displacement caused by the thermal expansion of various tape components.

Versatility and Efficiency

Versatility and efficiency are the salient features that make TUB•ONE® particularly suitable for heating industrial, commercial, sports, and even agricultural structures. These features align it with the ecological and energy efficiency standards required by today’s market, making it preferable to other traditional heating types.

How Radiant Tube Heating Works

In thermodynamics, radiation refers to the process through which thermal energy moves from one body to another via electromagnetic radiation without needing a material propagation medium. This type of heat transfer can occur even in a vacuum, unlike conduction and convection, which require a material medium.

We experience this phenomenon daily, for example, when we feel the sun’s warmth on our skin or warm ourselves in front of a heater or fireplace. The thermal radiation generated consists of electromagnetic waves that can vary in wavelength and propagate through space until they interact with other bodies. When these electromagnetic waves strike another body, part of the radiant energy is absorbed by the body, warming it in the process.

Key Characteristics

Heat Transfer Without Direct Contact: Thermal energy can be transferred between bodies separated by a distance without the need for physical contact or a material medium.

Heat Transfer Through Vacuum: Unlike conduction and convection, radiation does not require a material medium for heat transfer, allowing heat transfer through a vacuum.

Propagation Through Electromagnetic Waves: Thermal energy is transported as electromagnetic radiation, which can vary in wavelength and propagate at the speed of light.

The efficiency of heat transfer by radiation depends on various factors, including temperature, surface properties (e.g., emissivity and absorption) of the materials involved, and the distance between the bodies. This principle plays a crucial role in many engineering applications, including radiant heating systems, whose operation is directly inspired by the natural principle of radiation.

Opting for this technology means reducing operational costs while actively contributing to creating healthier and more sustainable workspaces. It aligns with the goals of a greener and more responsible future.
