LB White Infraconic® Radiant Heaters are the ideal heating solution for healthier pigs …and up to 40% fuel savings.gas brooder lb white infraconic radiant heater

Improve production and profitability in any swine environment with the Infraconic’s patented heat efficiency, range of heat outputs, flexible installation and proven reliability.

With the Infraconic, you get a broader, more consistent heat pattern with less fuel. Pigs stay warm so they eat more and grow faster. And you save money on your energy costs – up to 40% depending on your facility and current heating solution.

The Infraconic's patented design delivers more radiant energy to the ground than other heating solutions. This means you get a broader, more consistent heat pattern with less fuel. Your pigs stay warm, so they eat more and grow faster. And you save money because you're providing better heating with less fuel.

Larger, More Consistent Comfort Zone

By creating a broader comfort zone with even heat distribution and no dead spots, the Infraconic helps you improve your productivity and reduce time to market through:

  • healthier lying patterns that minimize piling   
  • better rates of gain
  • lower mortality
  • lower feed and medical costs

Based on independent testing, the 17,100 Btu/h Infraconic 1-17 provided coverage for 170 weaner pigs within a typical 90 to 92 degree comfort zone compared to only 150 pigs covered by a competitive radiant product. What's more, the 1-17 uses 20% less fuel than the competitive model to deliver the larger coverage area.

Lower Fuel Costs

Beyond providing a healthier growing environment for your pigs, the Infraconic can save you significant money on your energy costs - up to 40% depending on your facility and current heating solution. Based on multiple studies, the 2,800 and 5,200 Btu/h Infraconics used 15% less energy than heat lamps, while the Infraconic 1-10 and 1-17 models delivered savings of 20% to 40% over other radiant and/or forced air solutions.

Easy to Install, Easy to Move and Easy to Maintain


All Infraconics arrive fully assembled and test fired for quick,
easy installation. And the Infraconic’s lightweight design and quick
connect gas hose make it easy to move from one pen to another. So you
make the most use of your equipment and minimize your capital costs.
Once installed, the Infraconic is extremely easy to clean and maintain
because its advanced design uses fewer parts than other heaters.
There’s no disassembly required.

Safe, Reliable Performance


The Infraconic shares the same quality design standards that have
earned L.B. White its reputation as the leader in swine forced air heating.
The Infraconic provides the rugged durability to stand up to years of safe,
reliable use in harsh confinement environments due to its high-temp
stainless steel emitter elements, corrosion resistant anodized aluminum
shroud, and stove enameled venturi tube.
