Aluminum elements

Silent running and low weight

DESCRIPTION

BACKER: ALUMINUM ELEMENTS: With aluminum elements you take advantage of the excellent heat-conducting properties of aluminum, with fast and uniform heating along aluminum sections. Designed to overcome all drawbacks of traditional heating systems. Backer’s aluminum elements products guarantee noiseless operation, perfect performance and optimal efficiency.

The large finned surface allows 86% of the heat to be quickly and uniformly transferred through convection moving a considerable volume of air at low temperature if correctly installed in appliances. This results in expansion of about 1% of the length and a maximum temperature of 350°C.

The maximum permitted working temperature is 350 °C, which corresponds to approximately 15W/cm specific power at natural convection depending on the section design. An aluminum element can have an electrical connection at one end or at both. An element properly positioned and installed – with consideration is taken to an expansion of about 1% of the length and a maximum temperature of 350° – establish the conditions for an optimal heating solution.

GENERAL INFORMATION: "With elements in aluminium you benefit from the excellent heat conduction of the material and the enlarged surfaces allows a compact design of your application. You get a fast and even heating profile. Backer aluminium elements are developed to improve elderly, traditional heat systems. Our products guarantee a noiseless operation. The aluminium elements can also be surface treated to further improve the radiation efficiency."

ALUMINUM ELEMENTS FOR CONVECTION: Designed to overcome all drawbacks of traditional heating systems. Backer’s aluminium elements products guarantee noiseless operation, perfect running and optimal efficiency. The large finned surface allows 86% of the heat to be conveyed through convection quickly and uniformed, moving a considerable air volume at low temperature if assembled in appliances with the correct assembly

ALUMINUM ELEMENTS FOR RADIATION: Backer’s high radiation element is used to transfer heat through radiation. This enables direct heat where it’s needed and thereby minimizes energy losses. It also increases the total heat that can be dissipated from the element.

Backer’s aluminium products are designed to obtain optimum heating transmission by thermal radiation. The products are also designed to guarantee noiseless operation, perfect running and optimal efficiency.

P2010: A radiation element, designed to guarantee noiseless operation, flawless performance and optimal efficiency.

Improving convection and interior climate
The aluminium element has the advantages of silent running
and with its lower working temperature, not “burning” the dust
in the air. This prevents any burned smell and blackened wall
paper above the convector.


Optimizing radiation
The excellent heat conductive properties of the aluminium
material will assure a fast and reactive heating of the element.
With different kinds of surface treatments and surface designs
the element radiation surface can be increased to optimize
element size. By using a painted or anodized surface, thus
increasing the element emissivity, radiation will be optimized.
