The carbon cable consumes less electricity than other cables, at equal wattage and climatic condition heats up faster: Thermal Technology radiator with Carbon Fiber resistors increases from 10°C to 23°C (from 50°F to 73.4°F) in 03h:19’ versus 04h:30’ of a radiator with copper resistors (Applus Laboratories 2013). This guarantees more than a 25% electric energy saving when compared to a copper electric heating at equal caloric level. The carbon cable is considered to comply with the legal limits as regards the emissions of the electromagnetic field (Elettra80 - Tuv Laboratory 2010) and does not generate harmful elettromagnetic fields.
Heat exchange by radiation uses infrared waves as a transfer vector.
Two bodies or two objects having different temperatures radiate naturally towards each other and the heat flux goes from the warmer to the colder one. The radiation released into the environment by heating (floor, wall, ceiling or radiant) is transformed into heat in contact with an object, a wall or a person. So, the infrared waves are not absorbed by the air but rather by solid bodies that turn them into heat energy, transmitted then in the environment, creating, thus, the optimal conditions for occupants’ comfort.
CARBON FIBER HEAT
Carbon has a resistivity 2,058 times superior to that of copper.
Carbon has a density almost 4 times inferior to that of copper, with half caloric capacity.
Carbon has a heat absorption (internal energy) which is half of that of copper, thus releasing more heat.
The carbon cable developed for our products contains 12,000 carbon filaments in a section of 1 mm2 (0,0015 square inch).
