RaySol Applications
• Freezer Frost Heave Prevention
• Concrete Floor Warming
• Heat Loss Replacement
• Tile and Marble Floor Warming
3
Tile and Marble Floor Warming
•Application Overview
– Not primary heat source - comfort heat
– Residential bathrooms
– Embedded in mortar under tile
– Low density concrete
(Gypcrete) often used
4
Heat Loss Replacement
•Application Overview
– Used in areas over unheated space such as parking
–
–
garage
Objective is to have net zero heat flux
Run in conduit or attached to bottom of floor
5
Concrete Floor Warming
•Application overview
– Not primary heat source - comfort heat
– Schools, gymnasiums, bathrooms
– Run in conduit
6
Frost Heave Prevention
•Application Overview
– Moisture in ground under cold
storage areas (<32 degrees)
freezes forcing up floors
– Insulation slows, but does
not prevent, freezing
