Nowadays, fireplace, an ancient foreign product from the west, is continuing to write new life in our life.
Traditional fireplace and electric fireplace
Fireplace is a kind of imported product, which is mainly built indoors and against the wall to make a fire for heating. Later, it also developed independent fireplace and outdoor fireplace, which can also be used to cook food, but relatively less.
The basic structure of the fireplace includes a decorative fireplace frame and a practical fireplace core. According to different materials, the mantelpiece can be roughly divided into marble mantelpiece, wooden mantelpiece, imitation marble mantelpiece (resin), stacked mantelpiece, etc.; according to different fuels, there are not only traditional carbon and wood burning (real fire), but also later evolved natural gas-fired and today's electricity-based.
Traditional fireplace often needs the support of architectural design, such as the coordination of furnace and chimney. The furnace can be made of cast iron or stacked with refractory bricks. Nowadays, fireplace has become one of the necessary equipment for western families, and in view of its special decorative role, fireplace culture has become a common trend. According to different cultures, fireplaces can also be divided into American fireplaces, British fireplaces, French fireplaces, etc.
The so-called electric fireplace is a fireplace heated by electricity. The more rigorous definition is a kind of electric heating equipment with certain interior decoration, which uses the principle of optical reflection to simulate the effect of traditional real fire fireplace flame. Therefore, electric fireplace is also called simulation fireplace, or simulation fire fireplace.
The basic structure of electric fireplace is similar to that of traditional fireplace. The main difference lies in its main part, fireplace core. The fireplace core of electric fireplace is composed of flame simulation generator, fan heater and other special equipment, especially the simulation flame generator.
It is understood that the flame simulation generator is a device for generating simulation flame in an electric fireplace, including a shell and a fire depression simulation device arranged in the shell. The flame simulation device is an optical system to simulate the flame in the flame simulation generator, which is composed of light source, rotating shaft with driving device, reflector, filter plate and imaging screen spaced on the rotating shaft. There are four types of flame simulation devices: direct throw flame simulation device, reflective flame simulation device of light source, mechanical motion reflective flame simulation device and video playback flame simulation device. Type.
In addition, because there is no waste gas, there is no need to match the furnace and chimney like the traditional fireplace for the electric fireplace, so the architectural design is more concise.
