Overview

Constructed to hold up to the rigorous demands of jobsites or industrial facilities.

King’s PKB-FM portable unit heater is the best heat source to assist in dry-out applications where dry electric heat is preferred to propane or kerosene space heaters. In addition, electric heat has no odor, flame or carbon monoxide. The high CFM and low-temperature rise are also key features to make the PKB-FM the best solution for temporary large-capacity heating applications.

Spiral finned steel elements and high CFM ensure even air distribution producing cooler element operation, prolonging heater life.

Note: No Plug included in power cord

* Dual rated heaters will draw 13% less amps and 25% less wattage when operated at 208V.

Heater Features

Fight mother nature with portable electric heat.

A study from Cornell University revealed that increasing the working environment temperature to warmer thermal zones can save employers significant money by reducing errors and improving employee focus. When one company increased working temperatures by less than 10°, the productivity gains amounted to saving 12.5% of their wage costs per worker.

Spiral Steel Fin

Spiral Steel Fin Heating Element For Maximum Heat Exchange

The metal sheath element is copper brazed with spiral fins then molded into a coil configuration. This combination produces heat transfer while eliminating the potential for hot spots by positioning the element in the maximum airflow stream.


Engineering Specifications

Construction

All exterior and interior metal enclosure parts are made from 20 gauge electro-galvanized Steel with a rust-inhibiting baked enamel finish. Smooth rounded corners and protective edge trim give an attractive modern appearance.

Built-in Thermostat

Single pole factory-installed hydraulic capillary tube thermostat for precision heating control. Operating range 40° to 100

Fan Only Switch

Comes standard with fan-only switch.

Rear Intake Screen

Heavy gauge steel screen protects against foreign objects making accidental contact with the rotating fan blade.

Spiral Fin Elements

The metal sheath element is copper brazed with spiral fins then molded into a coil configuration. This combination produces the best heat transfer while eliminating the potential for hot spots by positioning the element in the maximum airflow stream.

Totally Enclosed Fan Motor

Permanently lubricated long life, unit bearing with 20cc of oil. Epoxy-coated motor with enclosed rotor resists moisture and corrosion for long-lasting, trouble-free operation.

Aluminum Fan Blade

Axial flow-type fan mounted directly to the motor shaft for maximum efficiency.

Thermal Overload

Heaters shall be equipped with King’s patented thermal overload Smart Limit Protection®, which disconnects elements and motor in the event normal operating temperatures are exceeded. If thermal overload trips due to abnormal operating temperatures, thermal overload shall remain open until manually reset by turning the heater off for 15 minutes. Automatically reset thermal overloads, which allow the element to continue to cycle under abnormal conditions, will not be accepted.

Cord Length

6 Foot SO Cord (No Plug Provided)
