MANUFACTURER
Gas-fired radiant tube heaters shall be SOLARONICS SUNTUBE IV
STAINLESS STEEL SERIES of the model numbers and inputs in
MBTUH as manufactured by Solaronics, Inc. Rochester, Michigan
48307.
DESCRIPTION
Gas-fired radiant tube heaters shall be designed to satisfactorily operate
at a minimum inlet pressure of: 6 inches W.C. for 40-125 MBTUH units,
and 7 inches W.C. for 130-200 MBTUH units, when specified for natural
gas; or 11 inches W.C. when specified for LP/propane gas; and at a
maximum inlet pressure of 14 inches W.C.
Gas-fired radiant tube heaters shall be designed to operate without
adjustments when burning natural gas having a heat value of 1000 BTU
per cubic foot with a specific gravity of .65, or when burning LP/propane
gas having a heat value of 2500 BTU per cubic foot with a specific
gravity of 1.53.
CONSTRUCTION
The heater’s controls shall be totally enclosed with a corrosion resistant
housing. The controls shall be easily accessible from three sides by
removing the cover. The burner core assembly shall be constructed of
durable materials specially designed for high efficiency, maximum heat
transfer, extremely quiet operation and extended life.
The heater’s combustion chamber shall be 4” O.D., 304L stainless steel
finished with a high emissivity rated, corrosion resistant, black coating.
302L stainless steel provides excellent mechanical properties and
corrosion / oxidation resistance at elevated temperatures.
The heater’s heat exchanger tube shall be 4” O.D., 304L stainless steel.
The heaters are CSA Design Certified for alternate construction utilizing
radiant tubes of all 304L stainless steel finished with a high emissivity
rated, corrosion resistant, black coating.
The 4” O.D. tubes shall be joined by two layers of 18 ga. (.052”) wall
thickness stainless steel tube clamp assembly and shall be a minimum
of 8” in length for maximum support. Clamp shall be of a compression
coupling design for uniform draw and pressure, and four (4) 5/8”-11x2”
zinc plated carriage bolts and nuts to draw up (tighten to a minimum of
65 foot-pounds of torque).
The direct spark ignitor shall be durable to resist breakage.

Reflectors shall be 304 stainless steel 24 ga. (highly polished) with a
geometrically designed configuration not having less than 91.7%
reflectional efficiency, shall be supported by 16 ga., 304 stainless steel
brackets.
Reflector brackets shall incorporate the geometric ability to rotate the
reflector up to 45 degrees, in either direction from horizontal using the
center of the combustion chamber or heat exchanger as the axis of
rotation.
Each 5 or 10-foot reflector section shall have the ability to be
independently rotated from all other 5 or 10-foot sections. The heater’s
reflector hanging system shall be designed to permit expansion while
minimizing noise and/or rattles. Reflectors shall be assembled to the
heater without the use of tools.
Heaters shall utilize a downstream turbulator that shall be factory
installed in the last 10-foot heat exchanger section, wave formed for
optimal turbulation, acceleration and impingement of the products of
combustion resulting in appropriate velocity pressure and momentum
for maximum thermal efficiency.
Heaters shall be equipped with a sight glass permitting a visual
inspection of the spark ignitor and burner operation from the floor.
Tube heaters shall be designed such that, at the customer’s option,
outside combustion air may be supplied without the use of additional
supply fans.
Heaters shall be either directly vented outdoors with insulated flue pipe,
or indirectly vented by positive air displacement of 4 CFM and one
square inch of net free area per 1,000 BTUH input.
Heaters shall come with a 36” long stainless steel flexible gas
connector.
CONTROLS
Heater controls shall be isolated from combustion air to prevent
corrosion from wet or dirty air.
Heaters shall be equipped with a direct spark ignition system with three
(3) trials-for-ignition and upon loss of flame sensing three (3) re-trialsfor-ignition. Flame sensing shall be via an independent sensing rod and
circuit.
Power supplied to each burner shall be 120 VAC, 60 Hz. (Optional 50
Hz units available.) Maximum heater electrical current draw shall not
exceed 3 amps.
Heater controls shall include a safety differential pressure switch,
factory set (non-field adjustable), to monitor combustion airflow, so as to
provide complete burner shutdown due to insufficient combustion air or
flue blockage.
The heater’s control system shall be designed to shut off the gas flow to
the burner in the event either a gas supply or power supply interruption
occurs.
Combination gas control shall have a step open feature for softer
ignition. Gas valve shut-off shall be of the redundant type. 100% safety
shut-off.
The heater shall automatically recycle itself after an inadvertent
shutdown.
The heater shall have three (3) system validation lights easily visible on
the bottom of the burner housing. Lights shall validate “Power On,” “Air
Pressure Normal,” and “Operation Normal.”
The heater’s blower motor shall be thermally protected, permanently
lubricated and the blower motor’s impeller shall be both statically and
dynamically balanced.
The heater’s airflow control system shall provide a pre-purge prior to
