The Blaze 100 Heater typically sits outside of the space and introduces 1020 CFM of heated airflow to the wet structure. The heater promotes rapid evaporation, and the moisture-laden air is continuously evacuated outside through strategic openings in the space. Water removal rates far exceed that of typical portable dehumidifiers. The Blaze 100 Heater is widely-used by Disaster Restoration professionals. The heaters are designed with proprietary custom features such as front-lift handle and structural support brackets. These features strengthen the heater for the rigors of repeated transportation and use. This heater is ideal for the cost-conscious consumer. The Blaze 100 Heater will cycle itself off and on to maintain the desired temperature. A return air duct can be used to bring heated air back from the space to gain increased efficiency. The heater has a 4-pass burner chamber, ensuring maximum efficiency and is ductable up to 20′. Indirect-fired heat means all products of combustion are expelled out of a flue stack, while fresh clean air runs across the heated chamber, and is delivered to the space. Unlike direct-fired “barrel” type systems, there are no exposed flames or fumes.
PLEASE NOTE: Power requirements are (1) 15 amp circuit breaker/standard wall outlet. Heater requires diesel fuel, sold separately. The heater must be connected to a Generator if run remotely. Inverters cannot withstand the initial Amp draw required to start the machine.
This All-in-One Heater package supplies your team with each of the necessary components to quickly set up your heater, safely transport it, and perform general maintenance to ensure reliable performance. Our Blaze heater offers contractors and restoration franchisees the advantage of Big Heat on wheels with this Premium Indirect Fired Heater. The innovation of the Italian Blaze series Forced Air Heaters lies in the four pass chamber heating design to capture as much heat as possible and exchanging it with the blown air to heat the environment. This Indirect heater will supply your team with ducted, clean, heated air to dry paint, cure concrete, or restore entire homes from water damage. Blaze heaters are heavily used in larger construction projects and water damage restoration because of its intense Thermal Rise and powerful Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM) fan output.
The Blaze 100 Heater is an excellent addition to a contractor’s arsenal as a patented mid-level Indirect Fired Heater. The innovation of the Italian Blaze 100 Forced Air Heater lies in the three pass chamber heating design to capture as much heat as possible and exchanging it with the blown air to heat the environment. This Indirect heater will supply your team with ducted, clean, heated air to dry paint, cure concrete, or simply keep warm.
Places you will see the Blaze 100 might include Commercial Construction Sites, Residential Construction Sites, Garage Heating, Air Plane Hangars, City Infrastructure remodels, temporary Space Heating, Curing Concrete, Agriculture Temp Heat, Water Restoration, Drying Drywall/Paint, Rental Tent Heating, and many, many others. The Blaze 100 has proven itself in a multitude of industries across four continents where it is present in Construction, Public events, and Agriculture to ensure that work never stops. The value of working through inclement conditions in comfort far out weighs the cost of these units as they last for many years with their Italian patented design.
Why Indirect Fired Heating?
Great question! There are three major forms of heating to consider when purchasing a Mobile Heater explained below:
Forced Air Indirect-Fired Heating is essentially a mobile furnace. Veloci’s Blaze line is an Indirect Forced Air heater manufactured in Italy. These units have a separate internal chamber where combustion by-product is isolated and expelled through a chimney which means that the hot air forced from the outlet is 100% clean heated air. Veloci’s Blaze 100 heater has a three chamber design that captures more heat for the forced air to exchange. This, in-turn, requires a larger fan which allows for an increased output of Cubic Feet of air per Minute (CFM). Compare the Blaze series CFM to any box store heater’s CFM and you will see Blaze units move clean heat at an exponentially higher rate. There is no use in having a high BTU unit if you cannot effectively move the heat into the desired environment. When purchasing an Indirect Fired Heater, consider the space you are looking to heat in cubic feet by measuring the length, width, and ceiling height of the space to be heated. For Veloci’s Blaze 200 and Blaze 300, dual ducting is an option for increased heating ability by pumping clean heated air into a second location of a structure to bring it up to the desired temperature, faster. Note, the Thermal Rise listed for Veloci Indirect-Fired heaters is meant to be added to the ambient temperature. Example: A 95°F thermal rise on the Blaze 100 should be added to the ambient (intake) temperature. This means that if the outside temperature is 50°F, the output temperature, once the air is heated and exits the heater would 145°F.
Radiant Heating, also known as Infrared, operates on the concept of Heat Transfer as compared to Heat Exchange (blowing heaters). Veloci’s Fire and Flame heaters are Radiant mobile units manufactured in Italy. These heaters have an internal burner that heats up an external face plate to 1400°F which transfers heat to any objects in front of it in a conical shape. Radiant units should technically not be used as space heaters since they do not heat air and, instead, heat objects. However, the Fire and Flame heaters have an air pocket that requires forced air. This unique technology yields a hybrid heater that effectively heats space and objects simultaneously. While the forced air output is only approximately 250 CFM, circulating air from heated objects, including the heater’s face, is the most efficient practice when fast heat is needed.
Forced Air Direct-Fired Heating has 100% efficiency but typically emits 30-40 PPM of Carbon Monoxide into the environment being heated. Direct-Fired heaters are the cheap ones typically found at hardware and big box stores. They quickly cause watery eyes, scratchy eyes, headaches and fatigue as the occupants of the environment are inhaling exhaust fumes. Furthermore, these units can leave an exhaust smell and purple haze when in a closed environment such as completing drywall or paint projects. Direct-Fired heaters should never be used in a closed environment or for livestock since the repercussions can be catastrophic. This is true for any Direct-Fired heater whether its fuel is Diesel or N/LP.
Approved Fuels by Ambient Temperature:
- Kerosene or Jet Fuel at -4° F or below
- Diesel Winter Blend between 32°F to -4°F
- Diesel #2 or Off-Road Diesel for 32°F or above
