Hot air in a trice at a low price:

The smallest oil heater fan of the IDE series from Trotec comes up trumps if you are looking for a compact and low-priced yet reliable oil heating solution for flexible heating applications. Whether in workshops, warehouses, production zones or on construction sites – with a heating capacity of 20 kW the IDE 20 confidently generates clean and dry hot air in quantities of up to 600 m³/h.

Even longer outdoor applications present no obstacle to the oil heater fan IDE 20, because it is provided with a durable housing made of doubly coated material, borne by a smooth-running carriage construction with cable holders and installed fuel tank. When employing the optionally available flue gas discharge, this heating device can also be flexibly used for the fully automatic heating of closed rooms.

The firing of the IDE 20 can variably be realized with diesel or fuel oil, the constant supply of which is ensured by a high-quality fuel pump. The external fuel filter enables easy access and the current amount of fuel can conveniently be read from the integrated tank filling level indication.

In addition to the thermostat for temperature control integrated as standard, the IDE 20 comes with an additional connection for an external thermostat, which is optionally available if the oil heater fan is to be set up at a distance of up to 25 metres from the area to be heated.

IDE indirect oil heaters – maximum heating power, clean warmth

The indirect oil heaters of the IDE series are ideally suited for rooms in which ventilation is only possible to a certain extent, but which still are to be used by people and animals. They are also a good choice for speeding up construction drying as well as in rooms where there is a fire hazard due to combustible substances.

In case of indirect heaters, the air to be heated is completely isolated from the combustion chamber.

The air is heated while flowing past the enlarged area of the combustion chamber, the heat exchanger. To be sure, the fan blowing out warm air also provides the required combustion air, but the combustion products are led away into the open air through a chimney.

Thus, in order to obtain both clean and dry warmth, we recommend using an indirect heater.

Unlike direct heaters, they do not emit any combustion products or water vapour into the room air, provided that the optionally available flue gas discharge is used.
