Mobile heating power on wheels: The IDS 20 D oil heater fan

IDS 20 D – mobile heating power for the construction industry and the agricultural sector

As a direct heater, the oil heater fan IDS 20 D offers mobile heating power with a 100 % efficiency directly on the spot. The IDS 20 D is especially suitable for heating well-ventilated stables or winter construction sites, but of course also for defrosting machines, vehicles or pipes.

Manufactured in Europe, the IDS 20 D's surface temperature of the outer casing and thus the risk of injuries for the user is minimized, due to its double-walled housing with protective coating. Moreover, the housing provides optimum soundproofing. The robust construction comes equipped with electronic flame trap, safety thermostat for overheating protection and fully automatic after-cooling.

Due to its carriage design with a push bar frame and front wheels, this professional oil heater can be used flexibly and can be transported quickly from one point of use to the other. Its integrated fuel tank renders additional external oil tanks unnecessary.

The oil heater fan IDS 20 D impresses with an appealing value-for-money ratio and a possibility for the quick heating of cold workstations with an air flow rate of 350 m³/h and a rated heat input of 20 kW – the high-quality oil burner with its Danfoss® pump vouches for this.

IDS direct oil heater fans – 100 % heating power for outdoor areas

The direct oil heater fans of the IDS series are optimally suited for outdoor use, e.g. for heating outdoor construction sites and agricultural areas, or for the use inside well-ventilated interior spaces, for they emit 100 % of the heat they produce. That’s why direct oil heater fans have no chimney. Or in other words, this process yields a heating power efficiency of 100 %.

In a directly heated system the fan blowing out the heated air also brings along combustion air.

A pump draws the fuel from the tank, brings it to operating pressure and, in a final step, guides it into the combustion chamber via an atomiser nozzle. There, the air-fuel mixture is burnt and the hot air generated is then mixed with the main air flow of the blower with exact dosage.

In addition to heat, direct heaters thus also emit combustion gases directly into the room. For this reason, they are unsuitable for poorly ventilated, closed rooms used by people or animals.

Since plenty of moisture is released during combustion, direct oil heater fans should never be used for construction drying.

The combination of easy handling, a carriage design with mobile use and a maximum rated heat output of 20 kW makes the direct oil heater fan IDS 20 D a versatile heating solution for a large variety of applications, for instance:

  • Heating of well-ventilated stables
  • Air heating on winter construction sites
  • Defrosting of and keeping machines, vehicles or pipes free of ice
  • Drying of agricultural goods like hay or grains
  • Heating of construction materials
  • Heating of well-ventilated interior spaces and roofed-over outdoor areas

Special equipment features of the oil heater fan IDS 20 D

Thanks to the carriage design with the push bar frame and front wheels, the oil heater fan IDS 20 can be easily transported from one point of use to the other. Furthermore, an integrated handle allows for an easy change of position.
Practical carriage design
To prevent the connecting cable from becoming a trip hazard during transport, an integrated cable holder allows for fastening the connecting cable safely whilst the device is transported.
Cable holder for safe storage during transport
The integrated tank can be filled easily and has a storage capacity of 17 litres of fuel – enough for more than 8 h of maximum operation.
Integrated 17 litre tank
The IDS 20 D comes equipped with a two-line heating system with an easily accessible external fuel filter.
