How Does a Torpedo Heater Work?

Answer

A torpedo heater is a flame powered heater that works with various fuels. The type of fuel you use greatly depends on the environment you plan to heat with the unit. Many construction crews use them for heating a break area or warming area on an outside job site. For this purpose, kerosene, LP gas, or diesel fuel is an acceptable fuel to burn. If the torpedo heater will be used in an enclosed area, it should only be fueled with LP Gas. Even then, you have to worry about carbon monoxide poisoning and fumes from burn off, so you should always keep a window open slightly for ventilation.
