5. Air Inlet and Outlet

It is an important part of the fuel bunk heater that allows air into the combustion chamber during combustion.

The air will receive the heat that will be important for heating the passenger compartment.

The following are the parts that form the air inlet and outlet system:

  • The Air intake silencer
  • Air intake grill
  • Air outlet
  • Air ducting system
  • Fuel Tank and Pipes

Bulk heaters that depend on fuel for their operations use the fuel tank as the store for fuel.

Depending on the design of the bulk heater, it may use fuel from the tank of the vehicle while others are independent.

Air flowing in and out of bunk heater

Air flowing in and out of bunk heater

The design of the fuel tank is the same in every bunk heater that you know.

The pipeline that directs the fuel to the bunk heater is different which brings out the unique features.

The key components that make a fuel tank are:

  • The pipes that transport the fuel to the bulk heater
  • The filter which removes the debris and particles that may be in the fuel. It ensures that there are very few contaminants entering the heating system.
  • It works together with the fuel suction system, connectors, joints, and clamping mechanisms for the pipes.

6. Fuel Pump System

It is the part of a bulk heater that ensures that enough fuel flows from the tank to combustion system.

It is small, but it plays a significant role in the bulk heater system.

It is available in different designs and configurations depending on voltage supply and function of the device.

Fuel pump

The fuel pump system has the following components:

  • Fuel filter
  • Pipes/fuel connectors/ fuel hose/fuel line that allows fuel to flow from the pump to the heater.
  • Fuel pipe clamp and the pipes to hold the components in place thus eliminating unnecessary vibrations.
  • Fuel standpipe to ensure that the fuel reaches the combustion chamber.
  • Blower

It is available in both electrical and fuel bunk heaters to suck air from outside and pushes it through the system.

Air comes into the heater when cold and leaves through the other side when it is hot.

In air bulk heaters, it is known as the hot air blower and is right inside the bulk heater.

7. Exhaust System

When air and fuel mixture burns, the result is the production of heat and exhaust waste or gasses.

The design of the combustion chamber allows the gasses to leave the combustion system through the exhaust.

Exhaust system components

Exhaust system components

The sections that make up the exhaust system are:

  • Exhaust Silencer to reduce the noise when it is in operation
  • Exhaust tubing or pipe which guides the exhaust material from the combustion chamber.
  • Clamping or joint mechanisms that support the exhaust parts

Bunk Heater Working Principle – How Bunk Heater Prevent Engine Idling and Warming the Cabin

Modern cars come with automatic bulk heaters that you can control using a remote control or your phone.

The idea is you are not supposed to turn on the engine of your vehicle before the heater begins operating.

You can set it off to heat the vehicle plus the engine when you are still in the house.

Since the bulk heater is an electric unit, energy from the battery as the main source of energy heats the element.

At the same time, fuel comes from the fuel tank, and air comes through to the combustion chamber.

The air-fuel mixture ignites when the element gets to the right temperatures, and as it burns, it produces heat.

The coolant receives the heat as it circulates through to the interior of the car making it warmer.

The liquid which loses the heat fast heads back to the combustion chamber.

The process continues, and the interior of your truck or car gets warm.

Since the bunk heater has its source of fuel, it will not require the fuel from the vehicle.

It means that it can operate well without turning on the engine of your vehicle.

You can sleep well at night, and you don’t have to live the engine idle to make the bunk heater work.

Such operations conserve the fuel of the truck and increase the durability of the engine.

It also reduces the emissions of the greenhouses gases that are responsible for pollution.

Apart from that, the automatic bulk heaters have sensors that will moderate the temperatures giving you ample time to sleep.

Installing Bunk Heater Step-by-step Process

After receiving your order of the bulk heater, check for the instruction’s manual, fuel pump and the standard controller.

Remove the heater from the box and check if it is in the right condition for installation and use.

Check if the accessories for attaching the bunk heater are available such as the connecting pipes.

In this case, we will be installing a diesel bulk heater so ensure that the package has a fuel tank.

Make the necessary measurements on the board of installation and drill holes according to the measurements.

Make sure that the distance between the holes is favorable enough to reduce heat build-up on the device.

Place the seal gasket at the right point to prevent the leakage of the heat from the combustion chamber.

After that install the mounting plate on the heater using some nuts to hold it tight on the heater.

Use a spanner to tighten the nuts on the screws better to hold them tight from falling.

The next step is the installation of the black fuel pipe and uses a spanner to adjust the clamp tighter.

Plug in the white fuel pipe and make sure it holds tight in place using a clamp.

Do the same thing to the exhaust pipe attaching it to the exhaust outlet and tighten the clamp.

Install the air-in ducting at the right position and tighten it well using the clamp and screwdriver.

Carry the whole installation and fix it properly in the wooden box you had initially made holes on.

Clip the air-in ducting to the board and attach the air filter which you should clean rapidly.

The next step is the installation of the fuel pump and using clamps, make sure it holds tightly to the fuel pipe.

Cut the fuel pipe at about one meter long and do not exceed that limit and install the fuel filter at the cut point.

Join the other side of the fuel filter to the other side of the cut pipe.

Do not forget to put in the fuel pump bracket in its position by cutting another part of the fuel pipe.

Install the fuel pump and use the clamps to hold the pimp well and in position.

Attach the fuel pump to the board too and connect it to the heater.

Connect the hot-air out ducting to the heater after which you will connect the cable and tie it up.

When connecting or disconnecting the plug, make sure that you press the button on the sides.

Fix all the plugs and them fit the plug of the controller and that of the fuel pump too.

Remember to connect the heater to the main source of power which is usually the battery.

Press the power button and make sure that the heater is turned on.

Set it to the heating mode then your heater will be ready to heat.
