Pioneer Space Heaters are based on ITR's successful military tents and barracks oil stoves but these diesel heaters are now certified to CSA and UL standards. These natural draft heaters are rugged and extremely safe, easy to operate, and burn extremely clean with no smoke or smell. These non powered diesel space heaters are being used in mining camps, construction sites, agricultural buildings, homes and cabins, workshops and garages. The portability of these diesel heaters make them great as tent heaters for hunting, fishing and camping, as well as for temporary structures, trailers, yurts etc. Pioneer heaters also work great with biodiesel, kerosene, and stove oil.
Diesel heat has great advantages over propane heat. It is much safer, easier to transport, readily available and is still cheaper per BTU. Diesel fuel offers nearly 140,000 BTU per gallon, compared to 91,000 BTU for propane. Even compared to wood stoves, these diesel space heaters are safer and much easier to use. First, wood is bulky and needs a good amount of storage space. Wood also must be properly prepared or dried to burn efficiently and this takes time as well as space. The work involved with cutting and splitting wood is both hard and dangerous. Potential wood burners also should be aware of the debris, insects and fungi in decayed wood which add to housekeeping chores. Wood fires also require some attention, stoking and periodic adjustment for good results and safety.
The Trekker Portable Space Heater delivers the ultimate in clean, efficient heat and requires no electricity. It is easy to start and operate and will deliver clean radiant heat for pennies per hour. The heater operates on readily available diesel fuel and will run up to a full eight hours on about half a gallon of fuel. The heater is ruggedly built for both portability and reliability. It is compact, (12"W X 15"H X 16"D) and lightweight (20 lbs without a stack). It has been designed for safe operation indoors in both permanent and temporary tent or portable structure applications. The heater uses a vaporizing burner and is controlled by a fully adjustable fuel regulator. The heat output can be adjusted from 4,000 BTU/h to 12,000 BTU/h (0.12 US gal/h fuel consumption on high). The heater incorporates two pot holders for cooking purposes. The Trekker also incorporates multiple operational safety features such as a patented, non flooding burner, fuel regulator overheat protection, fuel shutoff valve, stability legs, and safety pan. A heat shield is attached to the heater to protect the user from incidental contact.
The Prospector Space Heater delivers powerful, clean, efficient, radiant heat and requires no electricity. It is easy to start and operate and will satisfy large heating needs. The heater operates on readily available diesel fuel. The Prospector is ruggedly built for reliability and durability. It measures 18"W X 22"D X 36"H and weighs 58 lbs without an exhaust stack. The heater uses a vaporizing burner and is controlled by a fully adjustable fuel regulator. The heat output can be adjusted from 20,000 BTU/h to 55,000 BTU/h (0.55 US gal/h fuel consumption on high). The Prospector also incorporates multiple operational safety features such as a patented, non flooding burner, fuel regulator overheat protection, fuel shutoff valve, and side lighting port
