To the greenhouse or a farm could bring the income in winter time, its heating has to be economical and effective. Other is not given. The best alternative to outdated methods is the system of infrared heating of the greenhouses, farms and hotbeds, which is perfectly cope with protection of plants and soil from the cold.
Traditional heating methods of the greenhouses and farms (gas oven, water, coal and wood heating, convectors) became less convenient and cost effective. They needs considerable physical and money expenses that make the business more complicated and automatically increase self cost of production (that isn’t good). To replace old practice comes innovations – infrared heating.
Infrared heating of the greenhouses and farms has mass of advantages due to which germination capacity and growth of animals increase to 30-40% while reducing energy consumption by 40-70%:
High efficiency coefficient is 95%. Infrared heaters warm not the air but the land, plants and animals. Air space receives heat only due to reflected energy. All the energy of radiators is turned directly to the object of heating.
IR-heating has not an influence on the air moisture. The necessity for additional moistening is absent.
The system is mounted quickly, safe for human health, animals and plants, fireproof (the open flame and heating elements are absent).
The presence of the thermoregulators allows precisely adjust the temperatureto the needs of particular plant and animals. Also you can create in one greenhouse or farm some climate zones, setting the temperature level individual for each area.
To serve the equipment is easily and simple. Heatersworkpracticallynoiseless.
Depending on technological conditions infrared heaters can be placed on the ceiling, walls or used for heating of soil and animals, lying under the seedbeds.
The most simple and available way is the top heating (heat source is placed on the walls or ceiling) with the help:
heaters with the infrared radiators. The weight of one thermal plate is no more 3-5kl what makes the process of installation fast and easy. As a rule heaters are placed at the distance from 1,5 m to 3m from each other. The distance is determined based on power of the device, temperature in the greenhouse, height of placement of the plate above ground level.
Infrared lamps are less powerful in comparison with radiators. They are installed at the distance to 1,5 m from each other. They are most effective in the heating of the hotbeds and greenhousesof small area.
For the most effectiveness the lamps and radiators is recommended to mount on the subscales regulated on the high. Precisely to dose the amount of heat received by soil and plants.
The lower winter heating of the greenhouse is made by means of special tapes. The depth of their laying must be not more than 0,5 m from the surface of seedbed.
Tape is laid in the ground horizontally under the seedbed or vertically between the seedbeds and along the perimeter.
The system of lower heating is more difficult in installation but it allows to achieve a maximum decrease of energy consumption.
It’s important! At annual replacement of the ground, workers have to be extremely accurate not to damage the heating tape.
Also you can independently calculate heating of the greenhouses by infrared heaters.
