Introducing the NEW Space-Ray LoPro Brooder

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina USA — Space-Ray is introducing a new radiant gas brooder to their line of time-tested quality products. The new LoPro brooder features a lower profile; only 13 inches high, which is ideal in houses with lower ceiling heights. The LoPro produces a powerful 42,000 BTU/Hr on low pressure models and is also available in a high-pressure model. This brooder provides up to 5 percent more heat than other brooders. Our unique 60-degree emitter angle also optimizes the heat pattern and creates a large, wide heat pattern at litter level. This can provide a better and more comfortable brooding condition for your birds.

The LoPro is a maintenance friendly brooder with an easy access orifice. The LoPro comes with factory pre-assembled components and can be assembled in less than five minutes using just a single tool. This is an energy efficient radiant heating system that can save fuel and reduce maintenance. This LoPro brooder is engineered with a stainless-steel burner to resist corrosion, humidity and ammonia.

Space-Ray strives for safety, and design certifies all their products for both safety and performance. Space-Ray is proud that the LoPro is design certified by CSA

Radiant Heat Principle Described

Space-Ray radiant gas brooders operate using the same principle as the sun. Before heating the air, radiant warmth is delivered directly to the birds and litter area where it is needed most.

Unlike space heaters that work from the top down heating the air and upper areas of the poultry house first before stratifying down to heat the birds, the Space-Ray radiant gas brooders operate using the same principle as the sun’s rays. Radiant warmth is delivered directly to the brooding area where it is needed most, passing heat directly to the litter and the

birds themselves before heating the air. This accomplishes two things. First, the radiant heat helps dry out the litter keeping ammonia levels lower and second the heated floor acts as a thermal reservoir trapping and recycling heat to save energy.

Designers of the original radiant gas brooder over 50 years ago, Space-Ray radiant gas brooders have stood the test of time. Space-Ray brooders come with a full three-year limited warranty on the entire radiant heat emitter assembly and a one-year limited warranty on all other components.
