Wacker Neuson Heats Up the Maintenance Garage

The new Wacker Neuson HDR 155 Direct-Fired Radiant Heater features a heating design unaffected by the elements, so the heat is easily directed exactly to where it’s needed.
Delivering 155,000 BTU/hour (45 kW) heat input, the HDR 155 easily heats maintenance workspaces, workers and objects such as equipment, concrete form work and other structures from approximately 15 ft. away. Since infrared heat radiates directly from the heater’s disc, the HDR 155 does not rely on warming the surrounding air like convection heating, so it produces quick, intense heat.
The heater’s 300-series stainless steel front panel delivers exceptional performance and extreme reliability and longevity.
The design of the HDR 155 boasts three concentric cones: the inner cone containing the flame; center cone that protects the outermost surface from heat; and external cone constructed of high-temperature-painted carbon steel. The air stream is split between the inner cone to support the flame and center cone to provide cooling air for the heater’s surface. This “refractory free” cooling system results in a significantly cooler heater surface that does not require the expense or maintenance of molded heat refractory panels.
