The device and principle of operation of diesel heaters
The diesel heater consists of the following elements:
- fuel tank;
- combustion chambers;
- fuel nozzle;
- pipes for air intake;
- spark plugs;
- flame stabilizers;
- impeller and fan motor;
- filters for incoming and outgoing air;
Diesel is poured into the tank. Fuel enters the combustion chamber through a nozzle. To ignite the fuel, the air is blown up by a fan. The air must be clean and dust-free and filters are installed for this. Filters are used to clean the exhaust air from combustion products. The temperature regime is regulated by a controller and a flame stabilizer.
Varieties of liquid fuel heaters
Depending on the scope of application, diesel heaters are produced for garages, summer cottages, heating warehouses, houses, outdoor works, industrial premises, agricultural structures..
By the principle of heating, devices of direct and indirect action are distinguished. Direct heating devices are manufactured without special ducts or filters. Due to the fact that the combustion products of these heaters enter the premises, they are only used for repair work at low temperatures or in industrial premises. In modern models of diesel heaters of this type, an automatic flame control system is installed..
Indirect combustion devices purify the exhaust air using a chimney and an installed filtration system. This type of heater can be used for residential premises. They have a built-in flame control system, protection against overheating.
Infrared Diesel Heater
When eliminating accidents in power supply networks, heat supply networks or on pipelines in the industrial sector, a diesel infrared heater is often used. It is wall or ceiling mounted and is great for heating buildings with high ceilings. Infrared heaters can be seen in the winter areas of restaurants and cafes..
The principle of operation of an infrared device is similar to exposure to sunlight. Diesel fuel, when burned, generates heat rays that affect the surrounding objects, but do not warm up the air itself. Heat is transferred from heated objects to the air space.
Infrared devices differ from a simple diesel heater by installed heat reflectors and ray emitters.
Air Diesel Heater
Experts call this type of heaters heat guns. The body of the device is made of durable metal to provide protection against mechanical damage and overheating. The heater works on the principle of a simple fan. The room is heated by a moving stream of heated air.
The air in the room will be warm as long as the heat gun is on. After turning it off, the temperature drops rapidly.
