SPACE HEATER ARCTIC (SHA)
OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
PREPARING THE SHA FOR OPERATION
Two Person Lift
The SHA weighs approximately 40 pounds (18 kg). Two persons must
carry the SHA when lifting or lowering the unit from 3 feet or more. Be
sure to lift with legs, not back, to prevent injury.
This section outlines the siting requirements of the SHA, as well as the installation, preparation, and
operation of the SHA under usual conditions.
Heat or sparks from stack assembly could ignite fuel supply. Set up fuel supply on a clear site seven feet
(approx. 2.5 meters) from shelter and away from flame sources.
For safe operation, be sure to allow at least two (2) feet (61 centimeters) of space between the heater
and the shelter wall.
Read all warnings and cautions within this section and follow procedures outlined herein to ensure safe
operation of the SHA and associated equipment.
UNPACKING THE SHA SYSTEM COMPONENTS
Do Not Leave Any Components Inside Heater Frame
All components stored in the storage compartment of the heater must be
removed prior to operation. Components are stored in both the upper
and lower portions of the heater. Most of these items are liquid fuel
components which could be damaged by high heat if the heater is
operated with solid fuel.
The Space Heater Arctic utilizes the area inside its shell for the storage of components during movement
and storage. Some components are stored behind the front door while others are stored behind the rear
door. Before the SHA can be used, all components must be removed from their respective storage areas.
To unpack the SHA, press down on the spring-tensioned Rear Door (1) and remove the Fuel Flow
Control Valve (2), Stack Cap Assembly with Tent Lines (3), and Gravity Feed Adaptor (4).
