Beacon Morris Hydronic Unit Heaters
Steam and Hot Water Unit Heaters are comprised of a heating coil that is energized by either steam or hot water produced by a boiler or some type of central water heating device. Hung from the ceiling, a fan mounted behind the coil forces air through the hot coil thus drawing heat out of the coil and "throwing" it in to the area where heat is required. This product works on the same principle as your car's radiator. As your car engine runs and produces heat, coolant is pumped through the engine to a radiator coil in front of the engine. The fan under the hood blows air through the radiator coil drawing the heat out of the coolant, which helps to dissipate excessive heat from your engine.
Beyond commercial/industrial uses, Beacon Morris has created Serpentine unit heaters that can be easily installed in your garage, basement, crawl space or work-shed. These heaters are referred to as Serpentine units because copper tubing winds its way through the aluminum coil and efficiently draws heat from the hot water as it is pumped through it. As you can see by the above photograph, the Serpentine unit heaters are tapped on the side which allows for easy installation close to the ceiling as well as making piping in to your existing forced hot water system easily done. We recommend putting the heater in an out of the way corner of your garage and that you use an optional OSHA approved fan guard.
