How Catalytic Heaters Work:
Catalytic heaters have been used in industrial applications to maintain production levels and prevent freezing for decades. Catalytic heaters generate heat without a flame, which makes them ideal for use in many hazardous environments. These heating systems are named for the chemical reaction that occurs with the break down of molecules, which produces heat.
This heat-producing chemical reaction requires fuel, (such as natural gas or propane), an electrically preheated catalyst, (such as a platinum-coated pad or plate), and oxygen from ambient air. When these three elements combine, they produce completely flameless heat from start-up to shut down.
The radiant, infrared heat generated by a catalytic heater offers many advantages over other types of heating. Catalytic heaters heat only the objects they are directed at. This provides greater efficiency, allowing smaller heaters to be used and lowering initial cost and fuel consumption.
