Space-Ray Notes 60 Years of Gas-fired Infrared Heating

Since the original gas-fired burner was manufactured 60-years ago, Space-Ray has become one of the major manufacturers of industrial and commercial comfort heating products sold throughout the United States, Canada, and worldwide.

From its beginnings in early 1949, the company's product line has expanded with the addition of floor model heaters for use in steel mills in the late 1950s to broad area and perimeter high intensity heaters in the mid-1960s and to low intensity unitized tube heaters in the late 1960s.

Today, Space-Ray offers over 400 different heating configurations in over 80 models in both natural and propane gas. Capacities range from 20,000 to 250,000 BTU/hr.

"Space-Ray infrared gas heaters have earned a solid reputation for high radiant efficiency, easy installation, low maintenance, and a proven record for long life," noted Bob Genisol, vice president. "Some of our heaters are still providing trouble free operation after more than 40 years of service. For example, just recently a customer was looking for a replacement part for his floor model heater he purchased in 1962."

Applications for the heaters range from parking garages to fire stations, aircraft hangars, sports arenas, machine shops, weld shops, automotive body shops and dealerships, restaurants, hotels, poultry houses and almost any type of manufacturing plant.< one="" than="" less="" of="" payback="" a="" with="" percent="" 70="" as="" high="" savings="" fuel="" final="" report="" customers="" ome="" said.="" he="" systems,?="" heating="" air="" forced="" to="" compared="" costs="" annual="" in="" 50="" 30="" owner="" building="" save="" can="" systems="" infrared="" pace-ray="" heating.="" traditional="" alternative="" preferred="" the="" becoming="" is="" genisol,="" according="">
