Powerful Heating

The Detroit Portable Tank Heater is a powerful gas heater. Generates heat by burning propane, which is absorbed by the heater assembly and radiated out into the surrounding area.

It connects directly onto standard 20-pound propane tanks for fuel and uses a ceramic burner assembly, a highly-polished aluminum reflector and a set of stainless steel emitter rods in order to enhance its output and efficiency.

The heater can generate 32,000 BTUs and is effective in areas up to 500 square feet. Because it is gas-powered, the heater is designed for use only in well-ventilated areas and is not recommended for use in homes.

Rugged Construction

The Detroit Portable Tank Heater uses heavy-gauge cylinder brackets and sturdy, metal construction. It can operate for years without failing and requires only minimal maintenance to make sure the hose and connectors are clean and working properly.

Easy Installation

The Detroit Portable Tank Heater is simple to set up and operate. Once the mounting bracket has been attached to the heater and the hoses have been attached to the tank and gas valve, simply open the valve to start the gas flowing and use a match as an ignitor.

Safety Features

To prevent fires, the Detroit Portable Tank Heater is equipped with a tip-over switch and overheat protection. These features automatically shut the unit down when it gets too hot or accidentally gets knocked over.
