The Modine POR185 is an advanced oil fired unit heater that is both efficient and reliable. Capable of emitting 185,000 BTU/hr of heat, the POR185 has enough power to warm even very large areas. An efficient PSC fan motor powers the propeller while a two stage fuel unit ensures fuel pressure is always kept high. The unit heater uses advanced microprocessor based burner technology to provide an all-in-one tool for data readings, efficient fuel consumption, and automatic reset control.
Advanced Flame Retention Burner
The flame retention burner on the POR185 produces a highly stable flame, giving the burner a 20 to 30 percent increase in combustion efficiency over non-flame retention burners. The burner head matches the shape of the flame to the shape of the heat exchanger, allowing for maximum heat transfer while ensuring a long life.
Two Stage Fuel Delivery
The fuel unit on the POR185 uses two distinct stages to ensure maximum fuel pressure during varying degrees of operation. This allows the unit heater a high degree of functionality even in high lift applications.
Permanent Capacitor Split Motor
The permanent capacitor split motor design used for the propeller's motor works together with high grade ball bearings to reduce motor energy consumption and maintenance needs.
The sensors included in the ignition disable the igniter once a flame has been detected. This feature extends the life of the ignition system, reduces component noise, and reduces gas usage during the ignition process to an absolute minimum.
Beckett CleanCut Oil Pump
The POR185 comes with a Beckett CleanCut pump, a high grade oil pump with a number of distinct advantages over a standard pump. The cleaning operation of the burner cuts oil flow almost immediately after power to the motor is cut, resulting is less wasted oil and higher system life. Fewer moving parts are used when compared to a traditional pump, translating into fewer maintenance needs and far superior reliability.
