Bruest Catalytic Heaters heating systems based on proven catalytic heating technology is safe, efficient, and easy to use. All Bruest Catalytic Heaters heating systems are available for installation in Class 1 Division 1 or 2 Group D locations. Heating solutions are available from the well head to the distribution point.
Catalytic Heaters differ from conventional heating with the introduction of the catalyst. Normal ignition temperature of natural gas in air is approximately 1260⁰F. In the presence of a catalyst, the reaction occurs with sufficient velocity to begin a chain reaction at 225⁰F. Thus, if natural gas is brought into contact with the catalyst at 225⁰F or hotter, in the presence of oxygen, it will be oxidized into carbon dioxide, water vapor, and catalytic heat in the form of infrared light. As long as natural gas and oxygen is supplied, the catalytic reaction will continue without flame with similar amount of heat as if the gas has been burned. Bruest Catalytic heaters operates with a face temperature of 800⁰F to 900⁰F, making them safe to use in hazardous locations.
