Schwank is proud to announce the launch of ultraSchwank: Our most efficient, gas-fired radiant tube heater in North America, suitable for indoor industrial and commercial applications, with ceiling heights up to seventy five feet.

The industry-first breakthrough features of ultraSchwank: new burner incorporating the latest computer simulation design, and the development of the first insulated reflector system incorporating the same insulation used by NASA. A new benchmark in the industry! This is the first burner to be designed following a Computational Fluid Dynamics [CFD] model. The insulated reflector system captures convection heat, and increases tube and inner reflector surface temperatures, for superior heat retention, and greater comfort at lower air temperatures. Because more heat is directed where required, convection heat losses have been drastically reduced, with the added benefit of up to 30% to 50% reduction of minimum clearance to combustibles required for installation.

ultraSchwank can be safely tucked into a roof structure like no other heater can. Due to these innovations, ultraSchwank, is the only tube heater converting up to 62%* of fuel energy into infrared energy, to generate up to 55% more heat than conventional radiant tube systems, while reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions by 50%.

ultraSchwank is available in input capacities from 60,000 Btuh to 200,000 Btuh and lengths from 20 to 70 feet. The superior performance and efficiency of ultraSchwank have been noted by specifiers and engineers seeking to achieve LEED certification for their industrial and commercial projects.
