Olympian Catalytic Heater - Wave 8

Olympian Catalytic Heater - Wave 8

Product Code: VTS-542


An ideal primary or secondary heating source in your vintage trailer. Olympian Wave heaters operate on low pressure LP gas, and can be wall mounted or used as portables. Equipped with a 100% safety shut-off valve to prevent accidental non-ignition fuel discharge. The built-in automatic Piezo electric spark starter will last for 20,000 starts. No electrical drain or battery connection.

Catalytic heaters produce heat by combining LP gas and oxygen in a platinum impregnated pad or catalyst. This causes a chemical reaction (flameless combustion) resulting the release of low intensity infrared heat. The heater operates below the temperature necessary to support flame-type combustion and no heat is lost through a vent or flu. Flame type heaters actually waste up to 45% of all heat produced.

Olympian brand Wave catalytic heaters are 99.98% efficient and are available in several sizes to fit your needs. Catalytic heaters heat efficiently, don't take up much space and are extremely safe. None of the deadly exhaust gases associated with flame heaters are produced with catalytic units. Wave Heaters are a great value, offering both safety and clean low-cost heat.


Note: All combustion processes consume oxygen. Standards require at least a 1 square inch fresh air opening for every 1000 BTUs of propane used by any appliance. Ideally there would be two vents, one low on an outside wall and the other high on another outside wall.This ensures that replacement air (oxygen) is provided. Opening a window slightly can accomplish this venting.
