What is a Rotaheater? Understandably, this is one of the common and first questions we are asked.
The short answer is Rotaheater’s deliver heat with zero carbon emissions. Central to our patented technology is the use of magnetic fields to induce heat within a heating element.
It is worth being aware of the basics of magnetic fields to better understand a Rotaheater. A Magnetic field describes the area in which magnetic forces can be detected. Magnetic fields are central to many products we depend on every day; for instance traditional electrical generators, MRI machines and even the induction hob found in many family kitchens. They are also an important contributor to why electrical products get hot and might prematurely fail.
Magnetic fields that interact with a moving conductor form eddy currents. Eddy currents in turn are used to create both electricity and / or heat. If no electrical circuit is established, then the electrical energy degrades as heat.
Rotaheaters employ these principles not to generate electricity but to exclusively generate heat in a moving conductor, our heating element. By avoiding the generation of electricity, Rotaheaters experience only very small losses to generate heat.
That is the brief explanation of what is a Rotaheater and why they are highly efficient. For more information on Rotaheaters and our product range, please contact Rotaheat today at email@example.com.
