Carbonwave vs. Ceramic Infrared Heaters

The heat produced by the Carbonwave heaters can be likened to that of stepping out into the gentle warming heat felt during a sunny day. If a cloud blocks the sun you immediately feel cooler as much of the infrared is absorbed by the clouds. Infrared should not be confused with ultra-violet that sits on the opposite side of the spectrum to visible light and can damage the skin.

Far-infrared is part of the sun’s natural wavelength and when absorbed it results in a warming effect that will not burn your skin like sunbathing. In comparison to a traditional sauna that induces surface level sweating due to its high temperatures, infrared saunas will induce a deeper sweat that can help remove deeper toxins from your body.

The far-infrared emitted from the Carbonwave infrared heaters has been shown to help aid in weight control, detoxification and rejuvenation of the skin while helping with pain relief from many ailments such as rheumatoid arthritis. The cutting-edge Carbonwave heating technology provides the perfect platform to experience the many health benefits associated with infrared saunas. Table 1 highlights some of the advantages that Carbonwave presents when compared to ceramic tube heaters.

The Carbonwave Difference

Due to the flexible nature of the Carbonwave heaters it is extremely unlikely that they would be damaged in transit or throughout the lifetime of their use. The Carbonwave heaters have a much lower surface temperature to a ceramic tube. This makes it possible to touch the heater during use without being burnt, which results in a safer sauna experience for the whole family.

The Carbonwave heaters have been externally tested and shown to produce a maximum infrared output in the 6-14mm range. The peak infrared output of the human body is around 10mm [1], which directly corresponds to the infrared output created using the Carbonwave heaters.

The heating surface area of the Carbonwave heaters are typically 35-50 times higher when compared to saunas using ceramic tube heaters. This increased surface area provides an even heat distribution and can provide an improved coverage of infrared within the sauna. The larger surface area helps envelope the user and reduce any colder spots in the sauna.

The Carbonwave heaters have been RoHS tested to show that hazardous substances (such as mercury, lead, cadmium) have not been used in the equipment. Furthermore, electrical wiring is protected by a steel conduit to ensure that any electromagnetic fields are reduced to an extremely safe level.

*Internal Heater Surface Area Calculations
Note: As both heating technologies will emit heat from the front and rear of the heater element the comparison compares just the internal facing surface area of the heaters.

Small Ceramic Sauna: 3 heaters
π x 0.014m (diameter) x 0.65m (length) x 2 (heaters) + π x 0.014m (diameter) x 0.45m (length) = 0.0770. Internal heater area = 0.0770 / 2 = 0.0385m2

Large Ceramic Sauna 6 heaters
π x 0.014m (diameter) x 0.65m (length) x 6 (heaters) = 0.172. Internal heater area = 0.172 / 2 = 0.0858m2

Solare Carbonwave Sauna (1 person): 3 x (0.75m x 0.58m) + 2 x (0.8 x 0.39) = 1.929m2

Solare Carbonwave Sauna (4 person): 3 x (1.06m x 0.58m) + 3 x (0.975m x 0.39m) = 2.985m2
