We had so many heater submissions in September that we had to put the rest here.
By Canadian Rental Services
Rentquip has introduced the new dual-output Patron E9, a new and improved version of the standard E9 which has been a staple in the rental industry for over 20 years. With just the flick of a switch, the dual-output functionality allows the user to switch between six and nine kilowatts, allowing for use on both a dryer or stove outlet (30 or 40 amps). Changing the plug end is not required, as these units do not use a neutral prong – the differentiating characteristic between a dryer and stove outlet. The heater pumps out 20,500 BTU per hour when running at six kilowatts and 30,7000 BTU per hour at nine kilowatts. Rental operators can now standardize on one unit as opposed to supplying both six- and nine-kilowatt electric heaters. Patron heaters are rugged portable electric heaters and have proven their value and versatility in demanding applications for over 20 years. All heaters are UL approved in both Canada and U.S.A. and are built in Finland with quality European components. Rentquip backs the product with a two-year warranty on all Patron electric heaters
New indoor air line
Campo Equipment has introduced the Blaze 600G Turbo (15 A, 585,000 BTUs) that runs on a mere 11.5 A, produces 5,500 CFM and is ductable to 150 feet. The 600G is whisper quiet and comes with wheels, forklift pockets and a lifting bail. It has recirculating capabilities with the exact same footprint as the Blaze 400 Turbo. Camps has also introduced the Blaze 150D/G (15 A, 150,000 BTUs) which produces 2,500 CFM, is ductable to 150 feet, and also runs quietly with wheels and recirculating capabilities. The unit is available in oil and NG/LP, and is fitted with oil and gas Beckett burners. Rounding out Campo’s indoor air quality product offerings is a negative air unit that produces 2,200 CFM with two operating speeds: 2,200 and 1,500 CFM. It also comes fitted with a standard 6-inch-deep, 99.97 per cent efficient HEPA filter individually tested and certified at 2,200 CFM airflow. Last, Campo has also introduced a high-capacity (176 pints/day) dehumidifier with an onboard humidistat for continuous humidity control. Campo plans to introduce portable air conditioners to its lineup by March 2017 to round up its complete IAQ offerings.
Wide temperature range
Engineered Performance Ducting has introduced its newest product to the Canadian heater market. AiroHeat is a unique hybrid design that effectively operates in temperature ranges from -53 to 190 C. The six-foot polyester starter section is designed to handle the initial blast from most heaters on the market (up to 190 C) and will remain flexible in cold weather environments. AiroHeat is wire-reinforced and includes wearstrip to protect the duct from everyday wear and tear. Each section of AiroHeat is 25 feet long and available in the four most common diameters for heating applications: 12-, 16-, 20- and 24-inch. Standard end finish incorporates a cuff/strap inlet and wire ring outlet along with two storage straps with clip buckles for transport and easy storing. AiroHeat is manufactured using fire-resistant materials and passes UL 94V-0, NFPA 705 and NFPA 701 flame resistance tests.
Clean air applications
L.B. White has introduced the Foreman 500 oil (diesel) indirect-fired ductable heater. When heating non-ventilated areas or where 100 per cent clean heated air is needed, L.B. White’s Foreman 500 oil heater is well suited for both construction and tented events. This robust and fully framed 500,000 BTU per hour vented heater can accommodate up to 100 feet of ducting, is ultra-quiet and has an easy-access rear panel for maintenance.
The Foreman has the capability to recirculate heated air by adding a return air duct and includes the option of moving the heated air with two 12-inch ducts or one 16-inch duct. A remote thermostat control can be added to dial in room temperatures from up to 25 feet away. Portability is part of the design with a convenient fold down handle for easy moving, tough urethane wheels that absorb shock but will never go flat and weight distribution set over the wheels for effortless maneuvering. Storage is maximized with a frame design that allows for unit stacking. It also includes forklift pockets for safe lifting and a lifting bale for use with hoists.
New for this winter season, NTI Global has improved its popular Hitex ducting by increasing durability of the duct ends. Stronger ends make for better connection to the heater and additional duct length. This product is backed by HiTex’s exclusive TuffGuard wear strip, which adds 360-degree protection, a waterproof outer layer designed for cold weather climates and a sewn enclosed wire helix for better duct design and toughness. Hitex ducting is competitively priced and made in the U.S.A. with distribution throughout Canada and the U.S.A.
Quiet, Low draw
Flagro Industries has introduced its newest addition to its indirect fired heater lineup, the FVO-400RC. This new model provides 400,000 BTU per hour of clean, dry heat directed through a 16-inch duct outlet. The reverse-inclined fan design allows for the heat to be ducted up to 150 feet at a true 3,500 CFM. The new motor and fan design are quiet and draw under seven amps, allowing for forgiveness with the job site electrical supply. The recirculation hood installed on this heater allows for the already warm air inside the building to be used for combustion. Also included on this new model is the Riello nozzle pre-heater, which ensures cold weather start up. Unlike fuel reservoir heaters, this nozzle pre-heater receives heated fuel right at the point of ignition raising the temperature of the diesel fuel and preventing fuel gelling.
