Fully Insulated, Enclosed Emitter Assembly for Durability & Efficiency

profile

Space-Ray’s stainless steel emitter assembly is fully insulated and enclosed so the insulation will not crumble or distort in the tough operating conditions normally found in poultry houses. This exclusive design not only provides durability but also prevents heat loss back through the emitter than can occur over time. This results in higher radiant output and continued energy efficiency that translates into annual fuel savings.

Unique 60° Emitter Angle Puts More Radiant Heat Into Primary Brood Area

Emitter angles

No other radiant gas brooder can provide more radiant heat to the floor of your poultry house than Space-Ray. Our specially designed 60° emitter angle, combined with our deep dish canopy, produces an optimum heat pattern in the primary brood area. This large radiant heat pattern means that fewer brooders are required in each house resulting in fuel savings.

Space-Ray’s Unique 60° Emitter Angle is specifically designed to aim the radiant heat directly at the birds where it’s needed most

SRB40CR PILOT IGNITION CONTROL OPTIONS

CONTROL NO. 2

For single or multi-zone installations using central or multiple thermostats. This 24 volt AC zone type control can also operate using a 12 volt DC inverter as a backup. The gas valve includes a built-in regulator. A 24 volt power supply is required. Zone control panel (Part no. 4361905) and/or 24 volt thermostat, computer or environmental controller is required. 100% gas safety shut-off valve.

CONTROL NO. 3

BA modulating type HI/LO control with integral thermostat. No electrical supply is needed. Upon call for heat, valve will open from pilot to low fire (32,000 BTU/Hr.) and modulate between low and high fire as necessary to maintain desired temperature setting. When thermostat has been satisfied, valve will modulate down to low fire and then drop to pilot. 100% gas safety shut-off valve. Available only for use with propane gas.

CONTROL NO. 9

An individual, non-electric, fully automatic On/Off control with integral thermostat which operates on millivolts generated by the pilot – no electrical supply needed. Integral thermostat features a wide temperature range for easy adjustment. 100% gas safety shut-off valve.

Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting Flowcharts are located toward the end of each products I & O pdf.

How high should it be mounted?

We recommend minimum 5ft-6ft (60-72”) above floor for coverage and even heat distribution (decrease the intensity directly below the heater). You can go lower but it is not recommended. The absolute lowest is the clearance to combustibles of 48” above litter.

How much area does it cover?

This can vary depending on mounting height and condition. What it may cover in Florida it probably won’t in Alaska. IT is important to make sure BTU load is satisfied. Once that is done you will want no more than 25ft between the brooders in the brood chamber. The heaters primary coverage is roughly a 10ft radius (20FT diameter) at 5ft mounting height.

Does it need electricity? If so what Voltage?

It depends on the control type.We offer multiply control types to match the needs of the grower.We have direct spark controls that can run on 24VAC or 120VAC when specified.We also have 24VAC pilot zone control and a non-electric self-thermostatic (integral thermostat) pilot control.

What gas pipe size is needed?

The gas pipe size is determined by quantity of heaters and length of gas pipe.We can help with gas pipe sizing if a layout is provide.The gas connection on the heater will vary depending on control type.It is 3/8” or ½” NPT.

How is the heater controlled or can you use a thermostat?

For the direct spark or 24VAC pilot zone control you can use the house controller or a thermostat.Heaters can be zoned together or have induvial thermostats that mount to heater.We offer both as accessories.The non-electric control has an integral thermostat so it will regulate itself based off the number setting selected through the control knob.The I&O Manual will state the corresponding temperatures for the number setting.

The emitter isn’t glowing as bright as when it was new or as bright as a new unit, are they working properly /producing the same heat?

The glow of the emitter will decrease over time naturally due to seasoning.From our laboratory testing, this does not decrease emitter temperatures and /or the radiant output or mean anything is wrong.The decrease in glow is due to the seasoning of the emitter.Light is a form of energy.So when the emitter glows its converting heating energy into light.So when the glow decreases it can be assume the energy isn’t being used for light.If there is a decrease in heater performance/output it is usually contributed to incorrect gas pressure or a need for cleaning.

Can and do the heaters need cleaning?

The heaters can and will need to be clean periodically.Outside generally blowing and cleaning off built up dust from canopy and components we recommend releasing the orifice holder from burn base and removing the burner base.From there you can clean the orifice, the burner tube on the burner base as well as the burner cap still attached to the emitter assembly.For the cap we recommend a brush to clean off any abrasive baked on material.The intervals for cleaning can depend on house conditions and if it’s the SS or Cast burner.
