Abstract:

This report covers engineering development and testing of a 15,000-Btuh, Military Design, Multifuel Space Heater. The heater has been designed to accept three types of standard, Army electrical power 28-volt, d.c. 115 volt, a.c., 60-Hz and 115-volt, a.c., 400 Hz. The heaters will replace performance specification heaters presently produced for use in mobile van and shelter applications. The report concludes that the contract for DT II heaters will require further design effort to effect improvement of gasoline fuel compatibility, stability for extreme variations of input power, noise level reduction, EMI suppression, and reliability. The heater design was found to satisfy requirements for capacity, airflow, controls, heat exchanger life, vibration, and low-temperature operation.
