Walton Gas Heater for 3.7 to 32-meter Antennas

Gas heaters for Snow Shield Cover De-Icing Systems

New CE Certified Gas Heating Unit’s Features

New Dual Hot Surface Ignition System:

  • Dual hot surface igniter's means redundancy in the ignition sequence.
  • Large flame sensing rod. Turbulence no longer a factor during ignition sequence.
  • Same reliable 3 try ignition sequence with purge time.
  • No more pilot assembly or pilot orifice.

Positive Blower Recognition for Ignition Sequence:

  • Normally open contact on air flow switch operates power to the ignition unit. No air flow, no ignition.
  • If no airflow is verified, the ignition unit will not be energized and the unit will go into ignition failure mode.

Same Wiring and Mounting Configuration as Original Heaters

  • Older Gas Heaters can be changed out with the new designed Gas Heating Units.
  • Mounting and wiring is the same.

New evolutions in Direct Fired Gas Heaters
