Product Description

The robust freestanding HGI Fan Heater is ideal for heating large spaces and can be used in factories, warehouses, workshops, marine vessels, stables, barns, sheds, garages or in any other large commercial or industrial space. Lightweight and portable, it is also ideal for use on construction sites as well as being used for climate control, drying paint and plaster, anti-condensation and frost protection.

The range comes in 12 model options with heat outputs from 2kW to 24kW depending on the model selected.

The IP54 rating of the heater provides tough protection against splashing water and dust and the galvanised housing protects against corrosion. The weatherproof housing and stainless steel heating elements ensure longevity and that the heater can be used outdoors.

The metal tubular frame provides stability when placed directly on the floor and when transported. The HGI fan heater can also be fitted with additional wall brackets should wall mounting be required (purchased separately).

Built-in controls include a thermostat and five-position switch to control the heat output and fan speed. It is also compatible with additional time controls and thermostats. If you require bespoke control options, please contact us.

The fan heaters are supplied with an internal five position switch:

  1. Off
  2. Fan only
  3. ½ fan + ½ heat
  4. Fan + ½ heat
  5. Fan + heat

Note: Should customers opt to use these heaters in a fixed location and hardwire them to the electricity supply, an electrical contactor will be required on 400V 3-phase models for installation of wall mounted thermostatic controls.

Design & Installation

The fan heaters have an integral capillary type thermostat which will measure the ambient air temperature and control the heating elements. This is a hand-operated rotary knob with scale. This thermostat has an automatic reset.

The fan heaters also have a limit switch, an over-temperature cutout. This over-temperature cutout has a fixed setpoint at 165°C and measures the outgoing air temperature. If the temperature exceeds this, the heating elements will be switched off. The over-temperature cutout must be manually reset by pressing the red button next to the thermostat. Potential problems could be a defect fan or overly dirty elements.

The fan heater can be placed on the floor in the robust frame provided or can be hung on the wall with the optional wall mounting bracket. This must be mounted securely and free of obstacles that will obstruct airflow to the inlet and outlet.

All electrical connections should be made by a suitably qualified person in accordance with the latest edition of the IEE Requirements for Electrical Installation (BS 7671:2008).

Periodic inspection of the fan heater must be carried out for the presence of dirt and dust. Internal components such as fan motor or heating elements must be cleaned with compressed air to avoid overheating.
