Diesel Water Heater


Recommended Posts

You have to turn it on, takes a minute or two to get the header tank to full temperature but once it's done that, it is instant hot water for the rest of the day. I have a recirculating system with the frost protection to stop stuff freezing too. It heats up the water in my tank too.

Don't think the gas setup can do this.

diesel not gas and go for webasto / ebespacher ;) there normally some knocking around on ebay cheapish

 

Yes, but they can't be used as on demand heaters on their own. They need to be assembled with a header tank, plate heat exchangers, and adjustable Thermostatic temperature control valves. Most of the second hand stuff on ebay is car specific and are canbus programmed.

 

The only stuff that works is the analogue controllers that are fitted to marine heaters.

If you did buy a marine Webasto heater, then it should also come with a wiring loom, fuel pump and digital controller (timer) - if it doesn't, then that will set you back another £250.00

Cheapish? There is a reason why diesel heaters are the price they are.

 

Here is a photo of the inside of a Pure Freedom diesel heater. This is an old model and has been upgraded since. The photo has been 'lightened' so you can see the black heater supply pipes more clearly. This is a single operator heater as it only has 1 heat exhanger. The 2 operator units use 2 heat exchangers and a bigger diesel heater (9kw as apposed to 5kw).

i might be missing something here but i dnt think i said thats all youl need, i simply recommended a reliable diesel heater to you but seems as you obviously no it all iv wasted me time. i got a webasto on my ionics thermopure so im aware how they work and whats included in them etc why not do away with the controller and wire it up to a on/off switch that works fine on my system so no need to worry about digi controllers for em as they not needed.
