The Quest PowerHeat CHH 1.8 Pro is a fuel-burning appliance, designed to heat fluid “on-demand” and provide pumped circulation of the fluid for use in various portable Hydronic applications. The PowerHeat 1.8 is the largest capacity portable hydronic heater on the market for structural heating. This unit provides a central source of hot “Heat Transfer Fluid” (HTF) for use with dependent heat exchangers such as fan coils for heating and drying of structures, multi-circuit line heat exchange hose or tubing for ground thawing, concrete curing, snow melting and slab heating, custom hydronic heat exchanger accessories and applications. The Power Heat 1.8 is equipped to burn any of the following fuels: light diesel fuel or heating oil, natural gas or propane gas. Pumping and Combustion Control are achieved with electrical components. Electrical requirements are 120/240 volt, 50 amp, single phase, 4-wire circuit. Hose connection couplers for the external HTF circuits are recessed into a sidewall alcove so as not to create “snag-points” when moving, shipping or delivering the unit. There are 6 pairs of 1″ quick-couplers and 1 pair of 2″ NPT valves accessible for connection.

The Power Heat 1.8 is designed for consistently-efficient outdoor operation. The unit comes with a 2-stage multi-fuel burner that can switch from oil to gas with a flip of a switch to accommodate whichever fuel source is connected. Oil connections are provided at the cabinet exterior and the complete gas train with control valves is installed. For security and environmental protection, all controls, burners, gas valves, pumps, and filters are secured behind access doors. All gauges are visible to the operator even when all doors are closed.
