CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- Space-Ray will show its complete line of unitized low-intensity gas-fired infrared U-tube heaters, straight tube infrared heaters and other infrared heater lines at the 2008 AHR Expo®, January 22-24, 2008, Booth #478 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. The AHR Expo® is the world's largest HVAC&R industry show where leading manufacturers display the latest HVAC&R systems, equipment, components, related products and services.

Space-Ray heaters are available in natural and propane gas and are C. S. A. approved. Space-Ray's line of LTU series tube heaters is well suited for high air change environments and higher mounting heights of 12 ft up to 85 ft. The line includes 21 different models, with heating capacities from 40,000 to 250,000 BTU/hr.

In contrast, the company's line of LTS Series infrared straight tube heaters offers more than 100 different configurations, with heating capacities ranging from 40,000 BTU/hr to 250,000 BTU/hr. The heaters can be used in a straight, L-shape, U-shape or Z-shape configuration. Tube length varies from 15 to 80 feet, depending on the model. Heaters are ideally suited for insulated buildings and facilities with high ceilings. They can be horizontally mounted for a maximum 75-foot sidewall venting capability instead of the normal 15-feet sidewall venting in most other units.

Heaters meet a variety of industrial and commercial needs and have features not available on most competitive units for trouble-free operation, low maintenance and fuel efficiency. Applications range from industrial plants and warehouses to aircraft hangars, machine shops, welds shops, maintenance facilities, automotive body shops and dealerships, fire stations, restaurants, sports facilities and greenhouses.
"With over 200 different heating configurations, Space-Ray has one of the broadest and most complete line of tube heaters in the industry," noted Bob Genisol, Vice
President of Sales & Marketing for Space-Ray. "This enhances our capability to custom design a radiant heating system that meets precise facility requirements for optimum flexibility, economy and maximum radiant energy distribution."
