Why choose SBM ?

 

 

THE RIGHT HEATING SOLUTION

 

THERE ARE 3 METHODS OF HEAT TRANSMISSION

Convection: the transfer of thermal energy by a fluid (air, water, etc.)

Conduction: the transfer of thermal energy through a solid material

Infrared radiation: the transfer of thermal energy by electromagnetic waves (like the sun)


OUR SOLUTIONS

Owing to its decentralised heating solutions using radiation (radiant tube heaters) and convection (air heaters), SBM offers the optimal solution for each type of building.

Our thermal engineering department, experts in heating for more than 50 years, recommends the most suitable technology, unit power and location of units according to your needs to ensure your users an ideal feeling of comfort.

 


 

 

 

WHEN SHOULD INFRARED HEATING BE USED?

 

Heating by infrared radiation makes it possible to target heat directly to the users without heating the air in the building, thus generating significant energy savings for high-rise buildings (over 5m) with a high air renewal rate.

 

In addition, since the heat source is installed inside the building, there is no energy loss through a distribution network and therefore less gas consumption.

The energy emitted by radiation is characterised by several parameters:
 
  •  The emitting surface: the larger it is, the more energy is emitted
  •  The emissivity of the material: the greater the emissivity (close to 1), the greater the energy emitted. Ceramic is one of the materials with the best emissivity: 0.95
  •  The temperature of the material: the hotter the emitting material, the more energy it emits. The energy emitted is proportional to the temperature, power 4

 

 

WHEN SHOULD CONVECTION BE USED?

 

Convection heating is particularly suitable for low-rise buildings with low air renewal rate as the volume of air to be heated is limited.

 

Our ranges of modular air heaters thus generate homogeneous and economical heating in relation to standard air heaters. The modular condensing system provides increased performance by optimising gas consumption.

 

In addition, since the heat source is installed inside the building, there is no energy loss through a distribution network and therefore less gas consumption.
