The first Val6 heater was manufactured in 1974. Known for their quality and efficiency, the Val6 heaters quickly established themselves as the #1 industrial portable space heater in Japan for the last 35 years and as the most established infrared space heater in Europe for over 30 years.
What is radiant heat? Radiant heat transfer occurs when infrared light leaves the surface of an object and travels to the surfaces of other cooler objects.
Why choose radiant heat? It allows you to heat an object without heating the air and losing efficiency at the same time. Heat penetrates evenly just like heat from the sunlight.
Val6 heaters are not affected by wind as forced air heaters that suffer from heat loss in the ambient air. Radiant heat travels in a straight line, unlike hot air, it is unaffected by wind or cold ambient air. Since infrared heat can penetrate into the object, the targeted surface and object are warmed and/dried in a uniquely different way from any conventional heater which utilizes heated air. Val6 generates infrared heat directly to the object without any air movement creating a dust-free comfortable environment.
Clean, complete combustion system produces no odor or smoke while it is running. State of the art combustion chamber enables virtually 100% fuel to energy conversion thus making it the most efficient form of heating per BTU energy burned. Because of the quality of craftsmanship, VAL6 heaters are guaranteed to last on average 3 times longer than typical convection heaters and those copycat versions.
How many hours of operation time do each of the heaters provide? KBE5S: 10 hours KBE5L: 16 hours
What type of fuel can be used in the heaters? You can use Diesel #1, #2, and Kerosene. If Diesel #2 starts to gel, mix with kerosene or Diesel #1.
What is the warranty period for VAL6 heaters? All VAL6 heaters come with a 2 year warranty.
What should I do to maintain my VAL6 heater? Replace the fuel filter and nozzle, and flush the fuel tank at the end of the season.
