Infrared heating panels

Infrared heating panels for the drying of wall surfaces in new buildings, for clearing water damage or for the renovation of old buildings

Infrared heating panel TIH 650+

The professional infrared heating panel TIH 650+ is optimally suited for surface drying of walls in new buildings or after a water damage.

Especially massive brickwork can be dried faster as compared to conventional dehumidification.

A prerequisite for an effective drying process is, however, a homogenous heat distribution over the entire area of the heating panel. Unlike conventional infrared heating panels, which often achieve only non-homogenous heat distribution, the innovative material mix used for the TIH 650+ ensures a perfectly consistent radiation performance over the entire surface of the heating panel, which is additionally insulated at the rear and thus ensures an optimal radiation directed at the object as well as maximum energy efficiency.

Up to three infrared heating panels can be combined quickly and stably for large-scale drying in batch mode.

Since the TIH 650+ works noiselessly and does not consume any oxygen, it can also be used in residential areas without difficulty.

Flexibly adjustable professional system

The professional infrared heating panels can be used as needed either individually or collectively:

  1. Individual horizontal floor installation of the TIH 650+ by mounting the supplied feet.
  2. Individual vertical floor installation of the TIH 650+ by mounting the supplied feet.
  3. Floor installation of the TIH 650+ by mounting the supplied feet and installed on top: a stack of other devices connected by means of stacking handles. 
  4. With the optionally available assembly support connection set and the set of assembly support fastening clamps the TIH 650+ can also be fastened to customary assembly supports to enable surface drying specifically directed at elevated areas.

A few practical basics: Water transport mechanisms in mineral building materials

Water transport mechanisms in mineral building materials

Porous, mineral building materials are traversed by a network of pores and capillaries of various types, sizes and forms, which are essential for water transport. Depending on the moisture content in the building material, water transport basically takes place in two different ways: diffusion and water current.

In case of diffusion, water vapour can flow through the entire pore space (1).

With increasing moisture content, a water film forms at the surface of larger pore spaces, smaller pore bottlenecks are already completely filled with water (2).

When the building material is supersaturated, there is so much water in the enhanced pore spaces that it can only be transported in form of current (3).

This liquid water transport phase is far more efficient than diffusion.

In consequence we can stipulate the following regarding the suitability of infrared heating panels for wall drying:

  1. Drying by means of infrared heating panels is only reasonable with building materials with a high porosity and well-formed capillary systems, e.g. bricks and some natural stones.
  2. In case of greatly compacted wall building material with closed structures or small capillaries (concrete), the application of infrared heating panels has no drying effect, because water transport is predominantly effected by diffusion.
  3. An efficient drying performance can only be achieved in the liquid phase. The moisture follows the heat flow only during this phase.
  4. When the water current breaks off with an increasing degree of drying, transport is progressively effected by means of diffusion. From this moment the application of infrared heating panels is of no importance to the drying progress!

Conclusion: For as long as liquid water transport in soaked building materials is effected by means of water current, infrared heating panels can help to speed up drying.

Infrared heating panels, however, cannot fully replace dehumidifiers to achieve an equilibrium moisture content in the building material!
