1-7. PURPOSE OF HEATER
Model UH-68G and UH-68G1 space heaters burn gasoline or diesel fuel to generate heated air. Fuel is
pumped from a remote source by an external fuel pump, forced through a spray nozzle, ignited, and
burned in the combustion chamber of a heat exchanger. A fan blows air across the heat exchanger and
into the space to be heated. Temperature is controlled by a room thermostat. Model UH-68G and
UH-68G1 have the following applications:
To heat rooms, maintenance buildings, storage facilities, shop, maintenance and
To supply forced fresh air ventilation without heating.
