Revolutionizing tent and hall heating
Heatbox enables energy savings of up to 70 %
Electric heaters are justifiably the favourites when it comes to heating tents and hall accommodations. Easy and clean to handle, quiet during operation. And from now on also sensationally low-priced – thanks to the Heatbox, a revolutionary innovation from Trotec.
The Heatbox is a weatherproof construction specially developed for tent heating with electric heaters from Trotec. The box has an integrated mixing controller by use of which the amount of fresh and recirculation air in the heating air can be modified. Moreover, the box is fitted with all necessary supply and exhaust air hose connectors required for mixed recirculation operation. This enables a variable and stepless adjustment depending on the application requirements – from 100 % of fresh air, for example for inhabited tents, up to 100 % of recirculation air for storage tents.
The advantages are perfectly obvious: instead of permanently heating up cold fresh air from outside to the required degree of heat, which requires an excessive energy input and entails high costs, the recirculation mode allows to add a certain amount of preheated air from inside the tent. When using the body warmth of persons in the tent, for example, the energy demand can be reduced by up to 70 %.
- Example A shows a “conventional“ heating scenario. The mixing controller is set to 0 % of recirculation air, which means that only outdoor air, having a temperature of 0 °C, is used for heating. When set to the maximum heating level 4 (18 kW), the electric heating device generates hot air with a temperature of 38 °C, which heats the tent up to approx. 20 °C.
- In example B the mixing controller is set to 100 % of recirculation air – only regeneration air is used for heating. Since hot air is now generated by means of preheated air, the usable heating capacity is considerably higher. Once the target temperature has been reached, the device can therefore be switched from the highest heating level to one or two levels below.
