By Heat King
The Heat King Glycol Mobile heater is used for ground thawing applications during the winter months throughout Canada and the United States. It is used for concrete curing, shale gas fracturing and space heating. The Glycol Mobile uses 200,000 BTU heat exchangers for proper temperature control. Models are available in three sizes based on the coverage of ground space that will need to be thawed or cured.

The HK 150 is the smallest of the Heat King family. This unit was designed with the residential contractor in mind. It is quiet, compact and fuel-efficient, yet powerful enough to thaw ground, cure concrete or provide temporary heat for up to two new home sites at the same time.

Glycol is pumped from the reservoir through the field hoses that are laid out to do the thawing or curing process and then back to the reservoir for re-heating.
 
The HK 300 is a midsize heater at 300,000 BTU. It is the most popular of the three Heat King models. It is designed for the residential and commercial contractor to thaw or cure large areas and still maintain fuel efficiency while being compact enough to easily transport after every project.

The HK 500 is the most powerful and largest model heater of the Heat King family. It has the capacity to thaw up to 11,200 square feet, to cure concrete up to 22,400 square feet and to provide temporary space heating for up to 15,000 square feet. It is fuel efficient and quiet for large commercial applications.

The Heat King‘s unique double loop design provides increased reliability and more consistent heat for better control. The two-loop system refers to the heater loop and the field loop. In the heater loop, glycol is pumped from the reservoir through the two, 250,000-BTU coil heaters where it is heated and then dumped back into the reservoir. In the field loop, glycol is pumped from the reservoir through the field hoses that are laid out to do the thawing or curing process and then back to the reservoir for re-heating. This will allow for less chance of boiler shock, which is when cooled glycol from the field hose re-enters the system and can cause damage or destroy the heater.  

The Heat King Family of Mobile Glycol Heaters can help the residential or commercial contractor to thaw the ground or cure concrete for any project.
