Chinese Night heater 2Kw

  1. I test ran it today in the shed, the fuel consumption was very consistent and worked out at 414ml per Hour, so I guess its a real 5KW and the stickers can't be believed. I think I'll just set it up to draw air from outside instead of recirculating it. I never planned on leaving it on, just a 10 min blast to take the edge off, ever so often.:)

  2. Fitted a 2kw version under my rear bench.

    So far so good, the heat it kicks out is amazing, happy I took the plunge and bought one for the sake of £115.

    Running on parifin, fuel kept in a washer bottle up front and fuel pump in a junction box on the chassis rail. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  3. Recirculating the hot air is a great idea
     
  4. It is best mount the pump the same as a Facet pump with the outlet higher to bleed any trapped air as you get cavitation bubbles with these types of pump.

  5. Also Eberspacher pumps. They like to pump “uphill”.
     
  6. Finally managed to fit the diesel heater in time for techenders.[​IMG]

  7. Intresting, I wanted to mount mine underslung but due to it being slightly lowered it wasn't possible

  8. Its probably only about 1.5 inches lower than the chassis.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
