HC Compact Universal Propane Cargo/Cab Heater by Elston Manufacturing

Universal (HC) Heater

The HC heater provides safe, convenient heat in a robust, compact package. It is built for environments where a heavy duty heater is needed such as mining and construction equipment, as well as beverage and van bodies.

  • Safe - The air needed for combustion is drawn directly from outside and kept completely separate from the inside air so carbon monoxide and other exhaust products are kept from the air you breathe.
  • Compact 19000 BTU Design - At less than one cubic foot (16" x 12" x 8"), this propane fueled wall mount heater can fit almost anywhere, yet still puts out lots of heat.
  • Robust - This heater is built to hold up in rough conditions.
  • Replacement for Hunter Heaters - Replaces discontinued models such as the PH20-15A and PH20-16A with a higher efficiency heater that has more modern controls.

The standard H-C-1 model operates on 12 VDC. An additional model, the H-C-24, runs on 24 VDC with an included 24 to 12VDC converter. Installation kits are available for a wide range of setups, including those replacing other companies' heaters and additional kits are possible. Please contact our sales department for details.
