Get the picture? The VAL6 is an infrared radiant heater that spreads its sun-like energy much more effectively to penetrate objects. Once they absorb that energy, those objects re-radiate heat to warm surrounding air and adjacent spaces.
By contrast, the forced air convection heater wastes heat at the ceiling and simply cannot warm people and objects as effectively or economically. And unlike forced air heaters, the VAL6 is uninhibited by wind and other adverse weather conditions, making it a popular choice for brick layers, stucco workers, concrete workers, and other outdoor construction trades. That resistance to wind also makes the VAL6 an excellent heater for outdoor recreation and sporting events.
What other benefits does the VAL6 offer?
The VAL6 creates a more comfortable working environment. By contrast, convection forced air heaters are notorious for producing unpleasant odors, excessive water vapor, disturbing noise levels, and irritation from smoke and dust, not to mention up to 30 times more carbon monoxide, which can exceed National Indoor Air Quality guidelines of no more than 15 ppm for an average of 8 hours operation. The VAL6? ... only 1 to 2 ppm on #2 diesel fuel! That's a clean burning heater!
How can the VAL6 combust fuel so efficiently?
The VAL6 utilizes an optimally designed chamber that creates a near perfect fuel/air mixture through perfect atomization and enabling the temperature to reach 1800 degrees F. Heat absorbed by the radiation disk can reach 1500 degrees F to radiate sun-like heat in a uniquely wide pattern at very high output. Starting up the VAL6 is just a flip of a switch. The heater reaches peak capacity in 1 to 2 mintues.
What does this mean for me?
This means lower cost of operation, far superior directional control of heat, far less combustion by-products, less irritants, virtually odorless operation, greater comfort, quieter operation, longer operation with fewer refills, instant heat, more effective outdoor use and a much safer, cleaner burn.
Who uses the VAL6?
Except for residential heating, almost every industry you can think of can reap the benefits of using the VAL6 infrared heater. Here are just a few:
Mining and Oil Services
Automotive, Bus and Truck Industries
Sports Industry, Arenas, Tent Heating
Highway Maintenance and Snow Removal
Military and Goverment
Fire and Rescue
Farming and Agricultural Industries
