Heats with full power and dries damp masonry

A flexible heating solution is needed for heating open construction sites and shells, stables on farms, tents, workshops but also storage and production facilities. All of these applications require maximum mobility to heat individual areas or changing work areas as needed – without cost-intensive heating of the entire area. The most common problem: the continuous supply of cold air from outside, for instance entering through open doors or missing windows in shells, make the use of conventional heating solutions uneconomical. The economical solution is called IDX!

Heating economically with the directly fired oil heater fan IDX 50 D

In harsh and changing work environments, the thermostat-controlled direct oil heater IDX 50 D impresses with an extremely practical and manoeuvrable carriage construction and an integrated 50-litre fuel tank. With a comparatively low consumption of max. 4.8 litres per hour, the 55 kW power pack generates up to 1,100 m³/h of hot air and thus allows for uninterrupted working throughout the day. No other oil heater fan of the IDX-D series provides more direct heat in open or permanently ventilated rooms.

Mobile direct heat – safe and straight to the point

To allow for easy temperature control, the matt black oil heater fan IDX 50 D comes equipped with a steplessly variable thermostat with a combined actual value indication of target and room temperature. An easy-to-read filling level indication reliably informs you about the remaining fuel quantity. For maximum operational safety, all oil heater fans of the IDX-D series are equipped with an electronic flame trap and integrated overheating protection.

Working in the warmth and preventing expensive work stoppage

The mobile oil heater fan IDX 50 D is recommended as a universal heat source for a wide range of applications. When heating shells and construction sites, the heater fan ensures uninterrupted working in all kinds of weather conditions. Building materials such as screed or plaster require a specific minimum temperature to be processed in an optimal way. With the directly fired oil heater IDX 50 D you are independent of outdoor temperatures at work. This helps to avoid expensive work stoppage and to meet deadlines that are important for construction progress. In well-ventilated workshops, warehouses and roofed outdoor areas without a permanently installed heating system, the oil heater provides immediately available heat for productive working. If you are working at changing locations, you will no longer want to miss the high flexibility of the IDX 50 D.

Thermostat-controlled temperature setting

The uncomplicated temperature selection (in the range from 5 - 45 °C) is carried out via a steplessly adjustable thermostat with an additional setpoint and actual value dual display. When the desired temperature is reached, the IDX 50 D is switched off fully automatically and is also switched on again automatically when this temperature is undercut.

Quick start-up, low-maintenance operation, easy handling

Concentrate on your work and leave everything else to the direct oil heater fan IDX 50 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 50 D you opt for instantly available heat in almost any place and any weather.
