The first U.S. manufacturer to design unitized tube heaters, Space-Ray is celebrating over 60 years of field experience and exposure to industrial and commercial heating problems. Space-Ray manufactured its original gas-fired burner in 1949.

"Space-Ray has one of the broadest and most complete infrared product lines in the
industrial heating market with radiant efficiencies unsurpassed by competitive systems," noted Bob Genisol, Vice President of Space-Ray Infrared Heaters. "All model heaters manufactured by Space-Ray are CSA-Certified, and our broad capabilities enhance our ability to custom design a radiant heating system that meets precise facility requirements for optimum flexibility, economy and maximum radiant energy distribution."

PTS/PTU Series Tube Heaters Described

Space-Ray's PTS/PTU Series Tube Heaters are unique in that they offer the ultimate in fire safety protection.

The positive pressure low intensity tube heaters incorporate a patent-pending innovative Tube Integrity Safety System(TM) (TISS) that provides additional safety for building owners and gives them peace of mind. The heater line is ideal for retrofitting existing push through systems and is certified for vented (sidewall or through the roof venting) or indirect vented operations.

The TISS(TM) System is a low voltage circuit that continuously monitors the clearance
between the top of the reflector and the ceiling for excessive heat and tube integrity compromise. If the heat increases due to the unlikely event of heat exchanger failure, the wire melts, the safety circuit is broken and the gas controls shut down, the company said.

"With the availability of this positive pressure system, we have taken steps to assure the integrity of the system and provide the ultimate in fire safety protection for our positive pressure radiant tube heaters," noted Genisol. CSA-Certified, the PTS/PTU tube heaters are designed for use mainly in complete building heating. The PTS Series heaters are available in Straight, L-Shaped, Z-Shaped or expanded U-Shaped configurations. In contrast, the PTU Series heaters, designed to use for high heat loss areas and spot heating, are available in seven different "U" shaped configurations that assure uniform radiant heat energy distribution.

Exclusive COMPUHEAT® Program

Also available from Space-Ray is information on the company's exclusive COMPUHEAT® program, a computerized heat loss analysis service, which the company offers
free of charge to qualified plant managers, contractors and building owners. Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Space-Ray's parent company Gas-Fired Products also has a wholly owned subsidiary in Ipswich, England.
