Quest Portable Climate Control has rolled out two new hydronic heaters designed to operate on multiple fuel sources.
The Quest PowerHeat CHH300 and CHH980 Central Hydronic Heaters use proprietary technology designed to ensure smooth, clean, cold-weather ignition and steady burn efficiency. The CSA/UL-certified units are tri-fuel, requiring only a burner change to convert from one fuel type to the other.
Features and Characteristics
All exposed components on PowerHeat CHHs are made of non-corrosive stainless steel and aluminum. The combustion chamber is 100% stainless steel that resists corrosion, even when running in low-temperature applications such as concrete curing, the manufacturer says.
Both units have an open, atmospherically vented expansion tank, making them safer to operate and effectively eliminating them from Pressure Vessel classification, eliminating the need for a pressurized boiler permit, Quest says.
The manufacturer says the systems are engineered for efficiency, allowing them to heat up faster, with less energy to better use their 300,000 and 980,000 BTUs. The 300’s 1HP and the 980’s 2 1-1/2HP stainless steel centrifugal pumps are all contaminant-free, keeping the glycol clean and safe to use, according to Quest.
Gauges and Indicators
All gauges and indicators are clearly visible, even when the unit is locked down.
In addition to the standard temperature, pressure, fuel level, and heat transfer fluid (HTF) level gauges, the PowerHeat CHH 300 and CHH980’s control systems include a sequence of status indicator lights that provide a quick function check and easy troubleshooting. A lifting hook on both units allows flexibility in positioning on the job site, according to Quest.
