tent heating

  • Dantherm tent heating VA-M40MKII
  • Dantherm mobile heating VA-M40MKII

Mobile warm air heater for tent heating.

The warm air heater VA-M40MKII is a mobile 38-kW unit primarily developed to provide heating in temporary or transportable buildings or tents.

The VA-M40MKII operates according to the indirect fired principle meaning that the supply airstream is heated separately from the combustion chamber. This way, the tent is heated with clean air free from combustion products or fumes.

The VA-M40MKII is essentially self-contained, requiring only a source of external electric power. The unit operates effectively on almost all diesel fuels and two robust wheels ensure easy transportation.
