Mobile tent heater IDS 30 F

The ideal solution for emergency and rescue services as well as municipal support organizations

The mobile tent heater IDS 30 F from Trotec

IDS 30 F – specifically designed as a mobile tent heater

This easily portable indirect oil heater fan comes equipped with a robust frame with shock protection and carrying handles as well as an already preassembled hose connector. We deliberately decided against integrating a tank in the IDS 30 F so that users can benefit from not only the lesser weight but also from time-saving loading since it is not necessary to drain the tank completely of residues. The absent tank also means that no additional transport or insurance documents are required for transport and storage.

The fuel supply of the oil heater fan IDS 30 F can be effected either via a large external tank or jerrycan – appropriate accessories are available for both types of application.

The heating device is prepared for fully automatic thermostat-controlled operation ex works. For use inside a tent, an external thermostat can be connected optionally using a cable of ten metres length.

As a standard, the oil heater fan comes equipped with an electronic flame trap, safety thermostat for overheating protection and fully automatic after-cooling. Furthermore, the double-walled housing with protective coating offers an effective soundproofing and increased safety at work, for the surface temperature of the outer casing and thus the risk of injuries is minimized.

Its robust construction, the many practice-oriented handling characteristics and flexible application, transport and storage possibilities render the tent heater IDS 30 F the ideal solution for emergency and rescue services or municipal support organizations.

IDS indirect oil heater fans – maximum heating power, clean warmth

The indirect oil heater fans of the IDS series are ideally suited for rooms in which ventilation is only possible to a certain extent, but which are still used by people or 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 principle, the combustion process is identical to that of the IDS direct oil heater fans: The fuel is drawn from the tank by means of a pump, brought to operating pressure and in a final step is sprayed into the combustion chamber via an atomiser nozzle as an air-fuel mixture, where it is then burnt. In the case of indirect heaters, however, the air to be heated is fully isolated from the combustion chamber.

Although with indirect oil heater fans the air provided for heating is drawn by the same blower as the combustion air, it is yet guided separately past the increased surface of the combustion chamber, the heat exchanger, so as to be able to heat up there without being mixed with the flue gas in this process. Whereas the combustion products are discharged to the outside via a chimney, 100 % emission-free warm air is spreads through the outlet opening of the indirect oil heater fan.

Thus, in order to obtain both clean and dry warmth, we recommend using an indirect oil heater fan. In contrast to direct heaters, in this case neither combustion products nor released water vapour enters the room air if a suitable flue gas evacuation has been mounted on the device’s chimney, leading the flue gases outside of the room to be heated.
