The form of radiation heat transfer occurs under vacuum as light radiation in the form of electromagnetic waves.
Thus the process of heat transfer by radiation is not linked to any support or carrier material, it can not be explained in terms of molecules colliding or moving.
The radiant floor heating conduits, particularly suitable in local having a height of more than 3 m and less than 20 m, emits infrared radiation, which is transmitted to the speed of light, and only produces heat when this energy is absorbed by a body.
In Figure 1 you can see the different elements that make up this system. Basically, the system consists of a radiant burner and the U-shaped conduit inside which combustion occurs.
At one end of the pipe is a vacuum cleaner smoke, forcing the hot gases from combustion to circulate inside the duct. Smoke and other combustion products are discharged to the outside through the vacuum cleaner.
As the heating system based on radiant pipes is not based on hot air, before opening any doors or gates, the recovery is much faster than conventional hot air systems.
As seen in Figure 2, the radiation distribution is performed based on the radiant pipes 45 ° on both sides.
