The most known infrared heating source is the sun.

The sun rays travel long distances through space with little loss of energy.

When they encounter a surface, their energy is absorbed and turned into heat.

The physicsspectrul electromagnetic


 The infrared spectrum is quite large and contains three sub-classes, according to the wavelength:

1. IR-A: 700 nm - 1400 μm - short, close to visible light,
2. IR-B: 1400 nm - 3000 μm - medium,
3. IR-C: 3000 nm - 10000 μm - long.


 The hotter the object, the shortest the waves it gives out, close to visible light (a hot steel bar, for example).


 The long wave sub-class of infrared radiation is the most efficient means of heat transportation.


Even distribution of heat


Infrared heating can be much like lighting up a room.

You can achieve a comfortable and even lighting by a proper arrangement of light sources.

The infrared heating elements can be arranged much the same way.


The basics of infrared heating


The best natural heating system - the Sun - has an excellent equivalent for indoor heating - infrared rays. The PION infrared heating system mounted on the ceiling can give us the same thermal comfort as the sun. The elements heat the floor, the furniture in the room, the wall, etc. which absorb the heat and give it out. Thus an optimal temperature is reached without the need to heat the air in the first place.

 The 8,000 - 15,000 nm infrared waves travels past the air molecules which become permeable for this type of radiation.
Shorter infrared rays (1,400 - 3,000 nm) collide with the air particles heating them up just like an ordinary radiator.
Infrared rays of 8,000 - 15,000 nm of length can travel long distances, thus becoming the optimal solution for heating large rooms and houses.

 Research has shown that the infrared rays with a wavelength of 5,000 - 15,000 nm (the so-called "Rays of Life") have the most beneficial influence (in the case of relative power) on the human body. The PION system infrared radiation, as well as the thermal radiation of the human body, fall within that range of length.

 Based on that research, the Japanese scientists designed, as far back as the 1960's, radiant ele to be used in infrared saunas, whereas the Russian scientists' innovation in the PION system consists in a lower operating temperature and, subsequently, a lower energy consumption.

 Joint research made lately by world renown medical institutions have proven the benefits of infrared therapy in treating cold, cellulite, weight loss, gastric stimulation, etc.
