Excellence of InterHeat Product – R125
InterHeat’s infrared bulbs are incomparable with her competitors whose products have suffered many known problems such as loose base, short life, unconcentrated heat radiation, etc.
Since her market debut in 1996, InterHeat has satisfied her pig farm customers by providing solutions for these common issues and has been leading the market as a dominant player.
Now, let us explain strengths of InterHeat products with more details.
Why does InterHeat Infrared Lamp have a long life?
The short life of existing Infrared Lamps, which is less than a month in the continuous lighting, is due to the problem that the lamps cannot resist their own heat. However, the products of InterHeat are manufactured based on the heat-resistant structural technology. The life of InterHeat Infrared Lamps is same as the life of the filament. They last more than 6 months in the continuous lighting unless there is glass bulb damage due to external impact.
Why does InterHeat Infrared Lamp never have loose-base problem?
Since existing Infrared Lamps emit insufficient heat, piglets do not feel warm even under the Infrared Lamps and sometimes climb onto others’ back instinctively trying to get closer to the lamps. This may bring physical impact to the lamps and often cause damage to the lamps. Other manufacturers know that the heat is sufficiently concentrated in the center if the filament is located in the optimum light center. But they only try to locate the filament as far as possible from light center due to the concern about the problem of short life.
Experiment Result in the [Final Report of the Contracted Research for the Technology Innovation Development Project of Small and Medium Business]
The experiment result of temperature increase of inorganic sample
[Graph 1] is the measurement result of the temperature increase for each light source when the radiant heat is irradiated on the surface of the artificial textile for 30 minutes from the 50 cm distance directly underneath.
The temperature increase of InterHeat’s 250W red coated lamp is the highest with the increase of 20.8℃, and InterHeat’s 250W Clear lamp is the next with the increase of 17.1℃.
The temperature increase of InterHeat’s 175W red coated lamps, 12.2℃ is similar to the temperature increase of the 250W red coated lamps of an overseas A company, 12,4℃ despite the 75W less power consumption. Comparing with the overseas B company’s 250W lamp, the temperature increase of the InterHeat 175W lamp is higher.
In the comparison of the same 250W lamps of InterHeat and the overseas A company, the temperature increase of InterHeat’s is 20.8℃ and the A company’s is 12.4℃, showing 1.8 times higher temperature increase.
The temperature increase result on the outer layer of the pork
[Graph 2] is the measurement result of the temperature increase for 30 minutes on the outer layer of the pork having skin-fat-lean meat located in the center at 50 cm distance directly underneath.
n comparison with two kinds of lamps of A company, there was a big difference in the temperature increase between InterHeat’s and A company’s lamps. Bases on the temperature increase of InterHeat’s 250W Infrared Lamp, A company’s 250W red coated lamp shows increase of 20.5℃, 67% of InterHeat’s lamp, and its PAR type 175W red coated lamp shows increase of 14.2℃, only 44.2% of InterHeat’s.
InterHeat’s 250W red coated lamp shows 1.5 times temperature increase of the company A’s 250W lamp and 2.2 times of 175W lamp. This result proves that InterHeat’s products have superior surface temperature increase effect to the two products of the company A.
Experiment result of temperature increase on the subcutaneous area of pork
[Graph 3] is the measurement result of the temperature increase for 30 minutes for the subcutaneous area of the pork having skin-fat-lean meat located in the center at 50 cm distance directly underneath of the Infrared Lamp by inserting the thermal conductivity sensor of thermal conductivity meter into 12mm in depth
In comparison with two kinds of lamps of A company, there was a big difference in the temperature increase between InterHeat’s and A company’s lamps. Bases on the temperature increase of InterHeat’s 250W lamp, A company’s 250W lamp shows increase of 15.9℃, 60% of InterHeat’s lamp, and its PAR type 175W lamp shows increase of 9.8℃, only 37.1% of InterHeat’s.
InterHeat’s 250W red coated lamp shows 1.7 times temperature increase of the company A’s 250W lamp and 2.7 times of 175W lamp. This result shows more difference in the temperature increase than the experiment for the surface area, and proves that InterHeat’s products have superior skin penetration effect to the two products of the company A.
Excellence of InterHeat Product – PAR
Problem of existing PAR Lamp
The PAR Lamps used for long among the pig raising market in Europe and USA have been getting good response thanks to the thick glass made with compression method and the comparatively longer life than other company’s R125(R40) lamp. But they still have various quality problems.
It cannot guarantee the long life due to the high heat filled inside of the lamp since the heat cannot be discharged easily due to the thick glass of the PAR Lamp.
Loose of welding line
PAR Lamp is electrically connected and lit after connecting the filament through lead-in wire with Nickel-Cobalt alloy outside of glass shell and base by welding but the lead-in wire comes off easily from the Nickel-Cobalt alloy during the use due to the unstable welding, and this causes the lamp not to be lit and eventually makes the lamp’s life short.
The base of PAR Lamp is fixed to the glass punched into the hole of the cylindrical area of glass not to be moved after it is inserted into the cylindrical area of glass vertically. It is tightly inserted at first, but becomes loose when the light is continuously on because the thermal coefficient of it is bigger than the glass. So the base can easily drop from the glass by light touch of piglets. This causes a lot of complaints from the pig farms.
The advantages of InterHeat 3G PAR Lamp
Change of the manufacturing process
There is no way to improve the unstable quality of the existing PAR Lamp as long as it adopts lead-in wire welding method. Accordingly, InterHeat developed a totally different manufacturing process, naming it 3G PAR Lamp, and removed all the outside causes of the short life. In addition, it is an epoch-making paradigm shift not to use the troublesome E27 2 level base, but to use the common E27 base.
Expansion of internal volume
Existing PAR Lamp cannot provide proper circumstance to have long life because it has too small internal volume compared to the high heat. InterHeat expanded the volume to the maximum limit proper to the international standard and provided proper environment for the long life of filament.
Solved the problem of Loose-base
The problem of Loose-base is fundamentally solved by making the glass of the PAR Lamp in the screw shape. InterHeat is the only brand that has solved Loose-base problem of PAR lamp.
Excellence of InterHeat Product – Lamp Protector
The problems of existing Lamp Protector
Lamp Protector is the device to use Infrared Lamp and is exposing many problems due to the high heat from the Infrared Lamp. Therefore existing Lamp Protector manufacturers punch holes on the protector and make some space between the protector and socket to discharge the high heat directly delivered from the lamp base to the socket of the protector and expect natural discharging of the heat. But in fact, the heat is not discharged and still remains around the socket. This heat causes many problems such as making wire connection area very hot and making the plastic part of socket melted and mixed with the dust and moist environment of the pig farms. And the moisture permeated through the holes and space made on the protector under water cleaning and may cause fatal problem at the wire connection area.
The advantages of InterHeat’s Lamp Proector
The problem of existing Lamp Protector is that it cannot radiate the high heat from the Infrared Lamp to the outside.
InterHeat solved this problem perfectly and reduced the temperature of rear area of the socket from 152°c to 100°c in lighting 250W lamp by adopting a radiator. In addition, the protector can be perfectly water-proof by removing the holes on the protector and space between the protector and socket. So you can clean the pig farms with water without worry.
Our Lamp Protector is proved to be safe product by German VDE, US/Canadian CUL and European CE certificate for this feature in accordance with International standard IEC60335-1 and IEC60335-2-71.

WHAT IS INFRARED RAY?
The physical meaning of the light
The light which affects human life closely is a kind of energy which is formed as electromagnetic wave and particles. And infrared rays which have longer wavelength and ultraviolet rays which have shorter wavelength as well as the visible light are included in the energy emitted from the natural light and artificial light source. Light is physically one part of energy delivered as a form of electromagnetic wave or particles. But it is a sense to be perceived to the brain, changed into physiological energy by the human eyes.
The process of energy transfer or emission as a form of electromagnetic wave or particles is called radiation. Especially, energy radiation is called optical radiation, and heat energy radiation thermal radiation. There are three ways of heat energy transfer, convection, conduction and radiation. Infrared rays transfer heat energy through radiation. The wavelength of infrared rays radiated from the human body is 3㎛∼50㎛, which is the range of the far infrared rays. Among these, the far infrared rays of 8㎛∼14㎛ wavelength occupy 46% of the total radiation energy from the human body. Human body is a kind of natural heat source of average temperature, 36.5℃, that is, a natural biological source of infrared ray.
Kinds of Light
Wavelength of light consists of different lights of different wavelengths. This wavelength of light is from the shortest one of one millionth㎛ to the long one of a few meters, and is classified as bellows according to the wavelength.
The visible light which causes the sense of light is an electromagnetic wave of 380㎚∼780㎚ wavelength range. And in the optical science, the colors are classified according to the wavelength range. With the visible light as the center, ultraviolet rays and infrared rays exist in the left and right respectively. Ultraviolet rays which have shorter wavelength than visible light’s wavelength of 380㎚ has sterilization effect and photochemistry effect which causes fading and discoloration. It is classified to 3 ranges.
Infrared rays became known to us by the British astronomer, F.W. Herschel, who is from Germany in 1800. Herschel measured temperature of colors separated from the spectrum, and found out by chance that the temperature in the invisible light area increased. This was the first experiment to find out that the heat was transferred as a form of invisible light. The infrared rays of longer wavelength than 780㎚ and shorter than microwave do not produce sense of light at the eyes, but have the effect of heating. So it can dry or heat things.
Effect of Infrared Rays
The temperature range we face in a daily life is 280℃∼-20℃ in general. If we calculate the radiation wavelength with Wien’s displacement law, they are integrated into the far-infrared wavelength range of 5.2㎛∼11.5㎛. The far-infrared rays of 3㎛∼30㎛ wavelength are only commercially applied currently, and they have no chemical effect, but have physical and biological effects. The physical effects of infrared rays are radiation effect, resonance absorption effect, penetration effect, and the biological effects are expansion of micro-vessel of the organisms like human and animals, reinforcement of metabolism. The major effects of the far-infrared rays are generally known as bellows.
01. Bionic Effect and Nasty Smell Removing Effect
Body is mostly composed of water and protein, and among these, about 75% is water. When the vibration wavelength range of molecular motion of organic compound which composes water or protein is same as the wavelength of the irradiated far-infrared rays, body becomes activated. The absorption spectrum of organic compound is integrated in the wavelength of 6㎛∼14㎛. Far-infrared rays are absorbed and penetrated into the body by its unique penetration capability, make self-heating and bring warming and perspiration effects. With these effects, it improves regeneration capability of body tissues, promotes growth and makes vital health condition through its effects of expanding the micro-vessel, activating the tissues, promoting metabolism and discharging the bodily waste and harmful metals. In addition, far-infrared rays remove nasty smell by neutralizing the positive ion which is the main cause of the nasty smell because they can transform the air into the negativeion.
02. Activation of Water
Water is a cluster which is the group of molecules in which 5~12 H2O are connected in total form. When this group of molecules of water is stimulated by the far-infrared rays, ultrasonic waves and magnetic field from outside, the group of molecules of water becomes less and activated due to the activation of water molecules motion by resonance absorption effect.
If the far-infrared rays of about 10㎛ which is the vibration wavelength of water molecules are irradiated to the water, the cluster which is the molecules group of water becomes less and water molecules motion become fast due to the resonance absorption effect. The water becomes tasty through this process.
03. Ripening and Promotion of Growth
Ripening means the status having a special flavor through the decomposition of protein, fat and carbohydrate without rot by the effect of enzyme and microorganism. Irradiation of far-infrared rays makes multiplication of bacillus active and activates the bacillus itself in the vinegar. In addition, enzyme and lactobacillus are matured through various enzymatic reactions in the soy bean sauce. Like these, far-infrared rays promote ripening due to the increased hydration ability by activating the water. For example, it takes 2 months to mature the fruit wine in the natural condition, but takes only 1 day by irradiating far-infrared rays.
The water activated by the far-infrared rays promotes the growth of plant. The vibration of water molecules becomes high, friction occurs, cohesion of water becomes strong and the water rises. When the metabolism becomes activated by the capillary phenomenon, the roots suck up liquefied fertilizer to promote the growth. It makes the growth of flowers fast and makes flowers last long.
04. Economic Effect
Far-infrared rays have strong penetration ability. They penetrate deep into the substances, make heat by themselves and heat the inside evenly. So they can heat paint, food and body effectively, and thus, the heating by far-infrared rays is more economical than the heating by gas and others. Especially, they promote appetite increase and growth and reinforce the immunity in raising animals like pigs. In addition, they keep the farms clean and sanitary by drying straws. They increase the economic feasibility by reducing the loss in the raising because the piglets do not gather together due to the lack of heat.
