Herschel’s Vulcan 5kW Infrared workshop heaters are designed to heat large spaces like workshops and warehouses. They offer considerable advantages to operators seeking alternatives to gas or convection-based heating systems:
- Vulcan provides heat exactly where and when you want it. Used to heat specific zones within a large space;
- Pollution free – Vulcan does not emit any fumes and does not require additional ventilation;
- Powerful – designed for industrial use;
- Covers large areas from high installation heights
Effective, transmissive Radiant heat is produced by 5 x 1kW Quartz – Tungsten (Short/Medium IR: 1.6-1.9µm) lamps. The Vulcan is also unique in being equipped with fans which serve two purposes of:
- Significantly enhancing heat distribution (in the direction the heating is pointing)
- Considerably extending the life of the lamps by keeping them cool, without affecting their radiance.
The Vulcan 5kW infrared workshop heater is ideal for industrial units wishing to avoid using fully convection-based or gas-based blower systems.
Always refer to Herschel for an accurate assessment of your heating requirements.
The Vulcan can be installed pointing vertically downwards from heights of 3.5 – 6m above the ground.
The Vulcan can also be wall-mounted angled downwards and an optional bracket can be purchased for this purpose.
Single phase (220 – 240V 50Hz) power can be used to power the Vulcan 5kW workshop heater and installation must be performed by a commercial electrician. Do not exceed 245 Volts input supply as this will shorten the operating life of the lamps.
The Vulcan 5kW Infrared Workshop Heater has no built-in controls. Please discuss control options with Herschel during the estimating phase of your heating project.
The inbuilt fans have their own circuit and must be operational at all times that the lamps are operational and must continue to operate for at least a minute after the lamps are switched off. Failure to observe this requirement will invalidate the warranty. The Vulcan Fan Purge Timer (sold separately) is available specifically to ensure correct operation of the fans. One required per power circuit.
Vulcan 5kW Infrared Workshop Heaters are special order items. Purchase price includes the first set of 5 lamps.
