The DH12 Hydronic diesel hot water and air heater uses a diesel water furnace to heat 12L of coolant stored in an insulated stainless steel tank. The coolant is maintained at 80 degrees by the furnace and is then used to heat water via an inbuilt plate heat exchanger.
The system will heat up in less than 14min and from that point delivers hot water on demand, even at very low flow rates – something an instant LPG heater cannot do.
The DH12 can be set up with either a Belief or Eberspacher furnace.
The DH12 has the following features
- All 316 stainless steel, suitable for caravans and boats
- Insulated tank retains heat for efficient operation
- Fast heat up time, under 14min from cold
- Flexible installation arrangements allow installs in tight spaces
- Integrated air heating (optional)
- Includes tempering valve to ensure hot water is always delivered at safe temperatures
- Hot water when off the grid with no LPG or 240v
- All units fully assembled and tested prior to dispatch
Pair the DH12 with a Bricor low flow shower head to have super water wise showers – 0nly 2L/min, great for a caravan or boat where water is limited.
By adding in a Kalori fan head, the Hydronic-12 diesel hot water becomes an effective air heater, giving off up to 4kW of air heating from the single quiet Kalori Silencio 2 fan head.
Installation is simple. Connections to the water in and out, 12v power and a fuel line are all that is required.
Installation hardware including mounting brackets, high temperature silicon plate to get the exhaust through a floor and marine exhaust kits are also available.
The pre-assembled and tested hot water system base kit includes:
- insulated 12L hot water tank
- Eberspacher diesel hot water furnace
- combustion air silencer
- exhaust system
- tempering valve
- wiring loom
- fuel pump and fuel line
- on/off toggle switch
Note: the system is not shipped with glycol. The purchaser is required to fill the tank using a standard automotive corrosion resisting glycol mix.
All water heaters sold by Dieselheat carry 24 MONTHS warranty from date of purchase. Warranty is return to base which means you are responsible for returning any defective heaters to us for repair.
If you have an issue every attempt will be made to fix it via phone or email. Warranty is on heaters only and does not cover any issues caused by installations performed by the customer or other parties. If we can’t fix any issues with heater operation over the phone or email then the unit and possibly other parts as we suggest to you depending on the issue must be returned to us using an Australia Post air bag at your expense.
On arrival at our premises we will set the unit up on our test bench to ascertain what problem has occurred. Any defects or issues with the heater will be fixed free of charge and the unit will be shipped back to you at our expense. If the unit operates without any problems it will be deemed an installation problem and this is not covered by warranty. Any costs involved in returning the unit to the customer is at your expense.
Please do not try to disassemble the heater yourself whilst it is still under warranty without consulting with Dieselheat.
