Operation of the gas
A sauna gas heater by SAUNATechnics operates in accordance with a proven and tested principle. To put it simply: A steel pipe with a gas flame is heated with low pressure. This process is safe and efficient because it orientates itself along the actual heat requirements. This type of heating has proven to be reliable over decades. The use of gas heating, especially in large saunas, results in lower energy costs compared with an electric oven, for example.
Quiet and reliable
A low pressure blower at the end of the pipe system creates the low pressure. This special blower has a low noise level and is heat-resistant. As soon as the sauna requires heat, the temperature control will switch on the blower. The result is suction pressure when the burner is on. An air switch is triggered which activates the power supply (230 V) of the gas burner. An electronically controlled gas valve opens the inflow. The released gas mixes with the inlet combustion air to form a flammable mixture. This mixture then flows through the burner head into the burner pipe, lights up and subsequently forms a gas flame. A glow plug with ionisation ignition protection monitors whether the gas is actually burnt. If no flame is created, the glow plug will shut down the gas supply immediately. Therefore, only with sufficient low pressure can the gas flow and the burner ignite. If there is no low pressure, the gas burner shuts down for safety reasons.
Using residual heat
In order to realise even higher savings potential and increase the efficiency of the system, the use of an end pipe is recommended. It is placed approx. 10 cm above the floor and leads the residual heat from the combustion gases into the sauna: After the flame and the hot gases have left the heating coil (pyramid), the hot combustion air is fed into the cabin through the optional end pipe. It is not necessarily required to use an end pipe. However, the use will decrease the output temperature and increase energy cost savings.
The heating coil ensures even and effective heat dissipation in the sauna heater. It is made of a steel pipe which has been shaped into a pyramid. The pyramid shape improves the heat transfer to the top and increase the contact surface during infusions. The pyramid can also be delivered in parts so that the heater can even be installed in saunas with very small door openings. The pyramid pipes are heated to a max. of 450 oc. They emit radiant heat as well as convection heat.
In order to protect decorative heater covers from the infrared radiation of the heater, SAUNATechnics offers a sheath for the heater. It is located between the heater and the cover and protects brick or glued cover. In addition, the sheath can be attached to a metal grate on which you can place infusion rocks. For the perfect infusion heater, the pyramid heating coil is embedded in (natural) rocks. This set-up creates a very powerful heat storage system.
