Ceramic fan heaters of the TDS-M series
Quick, effective and draught-free warmth without burning dust
Just like all Trotec electric heaters, the ceramic fan heaters of the TDS-M series do not consume oxygen for heat generation and neither produce combustion gases nor condensate-laden warm air, which makes them the ideal rapid heaters for closed interior spaces, particularly in the time between seasons and on extremely cold days.
But unlike conventional heating wire devices, the robust fan heaters of Trotec’s TDS-M series use integrated PTC ceramic heating elements to quickly and effectively produce heat.
The durable PTC ceramic heating element offers numerous advantages as compared to conventional heating wire technology: PTC heater batteries are considerably more robust and heat up more quickly while they cannot overheat due to their functional principle. For if they become too hot, the conductivity and power output are automatically reduced by the material. This integrated temperature limiting effect protects the devices from overheating and thus offers a high level of operational safety.
For this reason, PTC heater batteries do not require a large air supply for cooling, which allows for installation of more smoothly running and hence silent fans. In combination with the large heater battery surface, TDS-M fan heaters therefore generate a pleasantly homogeneous, draught-free hot air current in a silent way.
Due to their construction, the ceramic heating elements moreover increase the stability of the TDS-M fan heaters – an additional plus in terms of operational safety.
Additionally, unlike devices with heating wires, the ceramic fan heaters of the TDS-M series do not burn any dust, which is why the room air is not contaminated with additional fine particulates – ideal for applications in living and working spaces, and a true asset for every allergy sufferer!
Faster air heating – more uniform room temperature
Trotec’s fan heaters with PTC ceramic heating elements (A) not only differ from conventional heating coil technology (B) in terms of their shorter heat-up times. There are also process-related differences in the response behaviour of the heating elements.
Although both devices maintain the preselected target temperature (orange) by means of thermostat control using a two-position controller, the respective temperature adaptation takes place significantly more slowly and with greater deviations from the desired target temperature in case of devices with heating coils. The reason for this is the different conductivity behaviour of the heating elements:
if current flows through the heating coils, the coils will always have the same temperature once they have heated up. For controlling the desired room temperature, the power supply is first interrupted, making the coil cool down, and then re-activated by the thermostat so that the coil heats up again completely before it is switched off again when the set target temperature is reached.
This “on/off process” causes significantly greater temperature fluctuations than with ceramic heating elements, for the material of the latter provides an integrated temperature self-regulation. The hotter PTCs get, the higher is their electrical resistivity, resulting in less current flowing through the heating element and in a reduced heating capacity, and thus in significantly lower temperature fluctuations and less switch-on and switch-off processes in thermostat-controlled operation.
For this reason, ceramic fan heaters are able to create more even room temperatures for temperature-sensitive manufacturing processes as well as a pleasant working climate.
A few practical benefits:
- Ceramic PTC heater battery instead of conventional filaments
- Multi-stage temperature control with different heating levels
- Overheating protection
- Fan motor with thermal protection
- Non-condensing warmth without oxygen consumption – ideal for heating interior spaces
- Stable, robust and silent
- Easy transport and operation
