New Product Introduction: Solaira ICR Series Commercial High Output Waterproof Heaters, Wall/Ceiling Hung or Ceiling Recess Mountable, 6 Inch Low Clearance

There are very few low clearance and/or recessed heaters on the market. Solaira is the leasder in high quality infrared heaters. They have introduced a heater that is similar to their Alpha series, however with a much tighter clearance requirement of only 6″. For recessing, at 4.33″ thick and a 6″ clearance to above, this also makes this heater able to go where no heaters have gone before.

New Product: TPI Corp. Fostoria FSS Series 208-480V Heavy Duty Single Flat Panel Emitter Infrared Overhead Heater – Chain suspension or rigid Mounting – Direct wire – Wire guard

FOST488266

Effective October 1st, TPI is revamping its current models of MR series to the new innovative energy saving FSS series.

TPI is constantly making improvements to product quality, improving customer reliability & safety. Our channel of electrical products keeps evolving; Just like incandescent has now been replaced by energy efficient LED’s.

Our current MR series elements lasted just 5000 hrs. Our new innovative emitters will last 25,000 hours (5X as long). These new Flat panel emitters generate large amounts of radiant heat in a fairly concentrated area. The required wattage output using these new emitters is considerably less, yet achieving the same output – allowing for energy savings. (78.5% radiant efficiency vs 50%) .

The “New” FSS series (which replaces MR) revamp an old technology with a new one. Flat Panel emitters.

The benefits are uncompromised safety- no ground fault required- a $300 net adder, energy savings, and elements that are longer lasting (5x longer).

The new units cost on average is about the same when you take into consideration GFCI protection which was highly recommended. The new units do not require GFCI. Furthermore, they pay for themselves in the 1st heat season using less electricity ( Approx.: 30% energy savings) to get to the same heating capacity using less wattage.

Case study of Warehouse Expansion and addition of Solaira Alpha Infrared Heaters/Controls

At Mor Electric Heating we have grown our sales/stock of Infrared HeatersRoof and Gutter Heating CablePipe Heating Cable and Comfort Heaters significantly. We needed to expand our stock shelves, boxing and receiving areas again, which were unheated. It would not be practical to heat the entire warehouse area since it is not insulated and is technically cold storage with an approximately 40 foot inside peak of the roof. So we are focusing on spot heating our working areas/stations. We decided those areas will need to be spot heated.  Depending on where you are standing at the workstations, the apparent temperature is approximately 25-50 degrees warmer than the actual air temperature.

We needed to install more infrared heaters, our first install was during a 2010 expansion of our shipping area when we chose to use four SALPHAH2-30240S (3.0kW 240Volt) because the reflector pattern, long life and 3,000 watts each (12 kW total) is well suited for that 20×20 area and 10-12 foot mounting height.

IMG_2640

We had some challenges with the available mounting options but ended up with a great system for our needs.  We had to hang two of them from the rafters with 25 feet of chains!  We set the height of one of the heaters as low as possible (10-1/2 feet) while still being able to roll our ladder underneath it.

On the other side of the shipping area we were able to mount the heaters on the wall and from shorter chains:

IMG_2654

For our 2015 expansion we installed Solaira Infrared Heaters because of the great success we had in our 2010 expansion and the warehouse employees love the heaters. We went with the Alpha Series and their Smart Variable Control.
We had plenty of 240 volt power available and despite the installation requiring a long run of conduit for the new heaters and controls the electricians quickly had it up and running..
For our new boxing area we used two SALPHAH3-60240B 6kW 240V Heaters:
IMG_2649
To spot heat the end of our long center walkway we used one SALPHAH2-40240S 4kW 240V Silver Heater:
SOLAIRA10070

And to spot heat each end of our cut to length heating cable spooling area we used two SALPHAH2-40240S 4kW 240V Silver Heaters:

The five new heaters are controlled by the Solaira SMaRT30-DV 120/208-240V 30Amp Variable Control:

We might just now have one of the single largest electric heat distributor warehouses in the country. Because we are simply spot heating with electric infrared heaters we are highlighting the effectiveness of electric infrared heaters.

This application utilizes the benefits of spot heating in a large warehouse without having to heat the entire warehouse which would be very costly in this region of the country.

New Product Introduction: Amaze-Heater Wall Surface Mounted Electric Panel Convection Heater. 120 Volts. 250, 400 or 600 Watts.

Amaze-Heater Wall Surface Mounted Electric Panel Convection Heater. 120 Volts. 250, 400 or 600 Watts

http://www.morelectricheating.com/products/MANUFACTURERS/COZY-HEATER%20LLC/COZY-HEATER.aspx

Amaze Heater is a safe, efficient, economic, electric heater that simply surface mounts onto interior walls and works by generating convectional air movement which distributes warm air to give background warmth in the room. Amaze Heater’s insulation is factory tested to resist over 3000 volts and has no exposed metallic parts. The internal heating wire is encapsulated in a special fire resisting resin, thereby making it very safe. In fact, it is triple insulated for absolute safety.

Amaze Heater’s heat energy is dissipated at the rate of 100 watts per sq ft (0.09 m2) and this keeps surface temperatures low. When accidentally touched, the nonmetallic exterior does not quickly transfer heat and will not cause burning. With no moving parts and a low temperature element, Amaze Heater’s safety and longevity is assured.

Hot air rises and gets displaced by cooler air. The Amaze Heater uses this principle to create convection currents within the room. These currents gradually (and without a fan) move the warmed air around the room and create a uniform ambient temperature. The low operating temperatures (below 150C) of the heating element guarantee its longevity.

Radiant heaters, with or without a fan, operate with very high temperature heating elements of up to 800C and merely create a hot zone in a room rather than heat the whole room. This hot zone then gradually dissipates heat to the rest of the room.

Safety Features and Durability – Hot surface will not leave burns at momentary contact Fire retardant UL listed materials are used Patented wings at top & bottom prevent over heating in case of coverage of heater by mistake No exposed heating element.

New Product Introduction: Fostoria TPI Corp. Heavy Duty Metal Sheath Infrared Heater

FOST135177

The Fostoria CH Series has been redesigned and is now the MR Series. TPI Corp./Fostoria Heavy Duty Metal Sheath Infrared Overhead Heater

http://www.morelectricheating.com/products/MANUFACTURERS/FOSTORIA/MR.aspx

 

 

Salamander branded Ceramic Infrared Emitters are being discontinued and replaced by the Mor-Infrared branded Ceramic Infrared Emitters

Mor Electric Heating Assoc., Inc will no longer be manufacturing the Salamander branded Ceramic Infrared Emitters.
Once our current inventory has been depleted, the Salamander branded emitters will no longer be available.

The Salamander brand is being replaced with the Mor-Infrared brand of ceramic emitters that will be made in a State-of-the-Art manufacturing plant in Europe.  
The Mor-Infrared ceramic emitters will be made to the highest quality standards and consist of the premium raw materials that you have come to expect from the original Salamander emitters. You will notice some slight changes in the construction of the emitters such as a lighter glaze coating, and a two piece clip to secure the emitters.  These changes, however, will result in a superior product with greater consistency to meet and exceed your expectations.

Introducing the world’s first all weather outdoor portable freestanding post mount patio heater. Aura Patio Plus!

For about 15 years we have desired a radiant quartz heater with these specifications. In the late 1990’s one of our vendors had shown us a new product introduction of a heater that would be weatherproof. It was later dropped before becoming available. The vendor had literature and everything ready and then stopped due to the difficulties in getting certification (UL, ETL or CSA) on a product such as this. Mor Electric Heating was one of the first distributors to partner with Solaira (Inforesight) and we are included in their product development review and programs. An all weather outdoor pole mounted heater has been one of our requests from Inforesight and we are thrilled and excited to see the excellent capabilities of this Vendor finally bring this product to market! It took them a year longer than anticipated and it now has certification.

There are many non-weatherproof heaters on the market, some of which we also sell. They must be turned off in precipitation and taken inside or covered.

The Aura AURAPP15120SS patio plus heater is 7 foot, 7 inches with an 8 foot plug/cordset, weighted Base. 1,500 watt, 120 volt

Aura is a brand of Inforesight Consumer Products Inc. whose original and biggest brand is Solaira, a leader in the outdoor heating market.

We are the first to bring you this amazing new heater which we believe greatly enhances the outdoor comfort electric heating world.
