Ground Heaters HX-Series
The HX-Series Heat Xchangers are intended for use with both the Sahara Air Heater and traditional Ground Heaters product lines. Powerful liquid-to-air heat exchangers, the HX-Series can turn any Ground Heater model into a highly effective air heater. This gives the contractor working in the winter the ability to thaw ground, cure concrete and then provide temporary heat to the enclosed structure, all with the same machine. Because there are no combustion by-products created by the Heat Xchangers, they can use air from the workspace instead of colder outdoor air, which requires less fuel to heat and are therefore highly economical to use.
