Fast heat on construction sites – powerful drying of damp masonry

Open construction sites, shells, stables on farms, but also tents, well-ventilated warehouses and semi-open workshops require special demands on a heating system. All of these applications require maximum mobility to supply the most diverse work areas with heat in a quick and economical way and without costly heating areas that are not used.

Compact heating unit

The oil heating device IDX 20 D is the most compact device of the IDX-D series from Trotec. The device is space-saving and light-weight when transporting it. When generating heat, it is surprisingly powerful in performance. Where conventional heating solutions reach their limits, the directly fired oil heating unit IDX 20 D scores with maximum economic efficiency combined with high versatility.

Heating economically with the directly fired oil heater fan IDX 20 D

In harsh working environments, the thermostat-controlled direct oil heater fan IDX 20 D convinces with an extremely practical and manoeuvrable carriage construction and an integrated 19-litre fuel tank. With a pleasingly low consumption of max. 1.9 litres per hour, the 20 kW power pack generates up to 450 m³/h of hot air and thus allows for uninterrupted working in warm surroundings. 

Overview of IDX-D oil heater fans: The right heating capacity for every application:

IDX 20 D 20 kW 450 m³/h 1.9 l/h 19 l
IDX 31 D 30 kW 750 m³/h 3.0 l/h 38 l

Working in the warmth – and preventing construction stops

To allow for easy temperature control, the matt black oil heater fan IDX 20 D comes equipped with a steplessly variable thermostat with an actual value indication of the room temperature. An easy-to-read filling level indication reliably informs you about the remaining fuel quantity. To provide maximum operational safety, all oil heater fans of the IDX series are equipped with an electronic flame trap and an integrated overheating protection.

The IDX formula for economical heating: Uncomplicated commissioning, low fuel consumption, low-maintenance operation

The mobile oil heater fan IDX 20 D is recommended as a universal heat source for a wide range of work environments. When temporarily heating shells and construction sites, the mobile rollable oil heater fan ensures uninterrupted working in all kinds of weather conditions. Building materials such as plaster and cement screed require a specific minimum temperature to be processed in an optimal way. With the directly fired oil heater fan IDX 20 D you are independent of outside temperatures. The device also speeds up the drying process. This helps to avoid expensive work stoppage and to meet deadlines that are important for a smooth construction progress. In semi-open workshops, storage facilities and production halls as well as in roofed outdoor areas without permanently installed heating systems, the robust oil heater fan heater provides immediately available heat for productive working.

If you are always working at changing locations, you will no longer want to miss the high flexibility of the IDX 20 D. Unattended heating operation can be implemented without any problems. The compact heating device is delivered in a partly pre-assembled state – in the final assembly process you just have to mount the wheels, the frame and the handle.

With the direct oil heater fan IDX 20 D you opt for quick heat generation at changing locations.
