With their metal housing painted in a striking signal red these solidly manufactured electric heating devices point the way for mobile heating of non-ventilated interior spaces – immediately apparent from the brand logo imprinted on the outside.

The fan heaters of the TDS-C series have everything you could expect from a modern electric heating device for rough everyday use on assembly or construction sites – except for heavy weight. This is made possible by advanced PTC ceramic heating elements. The durable PTC ceramic heating element of the TDS-C fan heaters offers numerous advantages compared to the heating wire technology of conventional electric heating devices: longer lifetime, less sensitive technology, shorter heat-up times, process-related overheating protection – and no burning of dust during heating, which additionally makes the devices suitable for allergy sufferers.

Thanks to the smoothly running fan and the large heater battery surface, you can benefit from a pleasantly homogeneous, draught-free hot air current – which is, moreover, usually produced in a more silent way. As an additional plus in safety, the integrated ceramic heating element also increases the heating devices’ stability. With two heating levels that can be set separately the fan heaters of the TDS-C series can be variably adjusted to the desired heat output and, in combination with their powerful axial fan, distribute pleasant warmth in cold rooms. The desired temperature can be regulated as needed via the integrated infinitely variable thermostat. If required, the fan can also be used in sole fan operation without heating function.

Since the ceramic fan heaters of the TDS-C series do not consume oxygen for heat generation and neither generate combustion gases nor condensate-laden warm air, they are suited particularly well for quickly heating closed, non-ventilated interior spaces.

Faster air heating – more uniform room temperature

Trotec’s fan heaters with PTC ceramic heating elements (A) not only differ from conventional heating coil technology (B) in terms of their shorter heat-up times. There are also process-related differences in the response behaviour of the heating elements.

Although both devices maintain the preselected target temperature (orange) by means of thermostat control using a two-position controller, the respective temperature adaptation takes place significantly more slowly and with greater deviations from the desired target temperature in case of devices with heating coils. The reason for this is the different conductivity behaviour of the heating elements:

if current flows through the heating coils, the coils will always have the same temperature once they have heated up. For controlling the desired room temperature, the power supply is first interrupted, making the coil cool down, and then re-activated by the thermostat so that the coil heats up again completely before it is switched off again when the set target temperature is reached.

This “on/off process” causes significantly greater temperature fluctuations than with ceramic heating elements, for the material of the latter provides an integrated temperature self-regulation. The hotter PTCs get, the higher is their electrical resistivity, resulting in less current flowing through the heating element and in a reduced heating capacity, and thus in significantly lower temperature fluctuations and less switch-on and switch-off processes in thermostat-controlled operation.

For this reason, ceramic fan heaters are able to create more even room temperatures for temperature-sensitive manufacturing processes as well as a pleasant working climate.

Reliable heating solutions with an optimum value-for-money ratio – suited for manifold fields of application:

  • Construction trailers
  • Greenhouses
  • Boathouses
  • Garages
  • Market stalls
  • Workshops and halls
  • Catering trade

Special features:

  • Fastening preparation for wall and ceiling mounting
  • Controllers recessed for protection

Practical tip:

Instead of positioning them on the floor, you can also flexibly mount the ceramic fan heaters of the TDS-C series to a wall or ceiling. For as they leave the factory, these electric heaters are already fitted with two fastening threads mounted to the sides that serve to accommodate the optionally available wall and ceiling holders.

This way you can use the heating devices without creating a trip hazard or obstructing a passage, for instance when heating construction trailers, market stalls, greenhouses, small halls, garages, workshops or boathouses.

The flexibly usable wall and ceiling holders are optionally available for all TDS-C models.
