Roberts-Gordon Infrared Heating Solutions

Mechanical or Industrial Engineering · Buffalo, NY

Roberts-Gordon LLC, located in Buffalo NY, is a manufacturer of gas-fired, low-intensity, infrared heating solutions for comm ... ercial and industrial markets. Unlike air heaters that blow hot air around, infrared heating is similar to the sun in that it gently warms people, floors and objects. These objects retain and re-radiate heat back into the space and not up to the ceiling or out the door like air heaters do. This translates into greater comfort at lower air temperatures, while using less energy. Infrared is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum, located between microwaves and the visible light we see each and every day. Infrared heating utilizes all methods of heat transfer: radiation, absorption, conduction and convection. Radiation is the direct transfer of energy from a hot surface to a cool one without any means of heat transfer such as air. Absorption is the ability of an object to absorb energy. Most materials in industrial buildings contain concrete or metal which are highly absorptive and ideal for infrared heating. Conduction is the transfer of heat through a solid object. This allows the building to heat evenly by spreading the heat throughout objects and warming the air through convective energy from these warmed objects. These combined concepts cause the heating dynamics of the building to be different. The heat loss to obtain equivalent comfort is less, therefore, enabling the user to use less energy and install less equipment. Roberts-Gordon supplies some of the best known brands in the heating industry under the recognized trade names of CORAYVAC®, VANTAGE®, GORDONRAY®, CARIBE®, and BLACKHEAT®. Our product line ranges from a high end fully customized infrared heating system to a standard economical radiant tube heater. ROBERTS GORDON® infrared heaters are ideal for industrial and commercial buildings of all shapes and sizes; for heating large, open spaces as well as concentrated areas. read more
