- The heater unit is supplied with fresh air from outside or a well-ventilated room, which is drawn through an air intake pipe and sent to an internal combustion chamber.
- The received air is mixed with fuel, which is delivered by a metering fuel pump to form the air-fuel mixture.
- The produced mixture is then ignited by a glow plug, which starts the burning process to heat up the heat exchanger.
- Air is drawn from the air inlet with a fan and passed through the heat exchanger radiator fins. Finally, the heated air is pushed through a hot air outlet.
Fuel can be supplied from an additional fuel tank or from the fuel tank of your vehicle.
Standard diesel, Winter diesel.
Bio diesel is not accepted for use as a fuel.
Bio diesel contains fast-growing bacteria which clogs up the fuel pump and burning chamber, damaging the heater.
