Ondol Life is scheduled to present a Red Clay Feet Heating System (Hwangto Balgoodeul) during '2018 MIK Conference & Networking Party' held in Yangjae The K Hotel Seoul on Thursday, August 23rd.
'Red Clay Feet Heating System' is an electric heater (feet heater) that can be used putting one's feet on the item at home or office floor. This mini ondol is designed similar to flat-stones floor heating with steam heat transfer by a heat pipe method. Increasing the body and feet temperature stimulates blood circulation, relaxes muscles, and alleviates pain, giving more stability. Pain relief can be felt by applying the item on not only feet but also other painful areas such as the butt, waist, shoulders, stomach, etc.
The Feet Heating System is a small ondol flat0stones floor heating that applied Ondol Life's patented heating system to reduce global warming and air pollution, by decreasing energy consumed for winter heating. Feet Heating System is a body-adhering heater that raises the overall temperature by heating up the feet, the lowest part of a body, rather than heating up a space, enabling its users to feel less cold even in a quite cold place. By raising the temperature of feet which are in the lowest part of body, it helps with blood circulation in the body and alleviates fatigue accumulation. The far-infrared radiant heat heated in red clay and ceramic stone at low power warms up a space to maintain a pleasant space.
Ondol Life has been researching how to have a healthy and warm life with little energy use. Unlike the existing heating system, the new heating system utilizes Ondol Life's core heat pipe technology and induces heat conduction using vapor heat inside the vacuum tube without using electric heater or hot water. This enhances the thermokeeping ability by heating far-infrared radiant matters in surroundings, which does not generate electromagnetic waves, is harmless to the body, and consumes little heating cost due to maximized energy efficiency. Also, it is completely safe from low-temperature burn on the outer skin and has no risks of fire since it heats up far-infrared radiant matters. The products made of this core technology include cypress red clay thermotherapy bed, Red Clay Feet Heating System, ondol tatami, personal heating system (jjimjilbang), etc.
An official said "The development of pipe heating system started as part of invention club activities in college. We have been participating in various international events to present a dry, assembling-type ondol system to the world market as a very stable heating system with the highest efficient electricity through numerous developments for about 30 years."
The Red Clay Feet Heating System currently has 15 registered patents, 1 Japanese patent, 1 PCT patent, KC certification, 2 overseas certifications (PSE and EAC), and numerous awards and recognitions such as the Minister of Environment Award. It has also obtained a venture company certification, AsiaLohas certification, Technology Innovation InnoBiz Certification, Knowledge Management Certification, etc., drawing attention as a company to mark an innovative turning point in heating with solid technological foundation.
