With rated power 2.5KW and rated voltage 12V or 24V, its input power is 30W, current intensity is 1.68A, and output heat is 8500BTU.

The operating temperature of Vvkb Apollo-V1 air parking heater is from -35 to 45;

while the working temperature of the fuel pump is from -35 to 25.

When warming up from 5 to 35,  the relative humidity in the space will be 92%.

Our aim is to make the heater of good quality, so we select better parts materials.

Vvkb Diesel Heater

Vvkb Apollo-V1 air parking heater uses Japanese Kyocera glow plug, whose ignition temperature is stable and reliable.

With German Heraeus temperature sensor, so can accurately control the temperature.

Using 32-bit chips to make computing faster.

All the screws on Vvkb Apollo-V1 air parking heater are treated with environmentally-friendly electroplating process, which has high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, so can withstand the high temperature of the combustion chamber shell.

All plastics from Vvkb Apollo-V1 air parking heater is first class, which is completely free of toxic substances.

And Vvkb Apollo-V1 air parking heater sensor transmits the data collected by the heater to the control unit through the CAN data transmission system.

After processing by the control unit, the sensor will adjust the combustion condition and the rotation speed of the fan, so that the heated space reaches the set temperature. 

Motors and impellers of Vvkb Apollo-V1 air parking heater have passed the balance test, which can make sure the heat can be transferred into space with low noise.

Now let’s see one of the most important part of the Vvkb Apollo-V1 air parking heater— combustion chamber.


The combustion chamber of Vvkb Apollo-V1 air parking heater is made of 2520 stainless steel with high temperature resistance exceeding 1400.

It will not be deformed during long-term use. Made of A380 aluminum, the combustion chamber shell can fully absorb the heat and can fully transfer the heat.

The combustion chamber shell is made from a 1000-ton aluminum die-casting machine with more than 10 times of procedures.

The large pressure allows the combustion chamber to have a tight and compact texture without any burrs, and also reduce the noise when working.

With the unique design of the combustion chamber, Vvkb Apollo-V1 air parking heater has 20% lower noise than the average heater, allows the fuel to fully mix with the combustion air, fully atomize, and then fully burn, which can reduce by 60% of the pollutants emission.

Vvkb Apollo-V1 air parking heater also does well in the noise issue.

Stainless steel 304 double spiral exhaust pipe has better effect to reduce the noise.

Equipped with stainless steel 304 exhaust muffler in the kit, there is a small hole inside the muffler that allows the condensed water vapor to be discharged out of the muffler.

Intake muffler can not only reduce the noise, but also prevent wasps and other little creatures come into the heater.

Meanwhile, we have also other parts in VVKB Apollo-V1 air parking heater kit make of good quality.

In order to make the heater start with high current and not let the cable have too much heater, we make the main cable into diameter 2 square millimeters. For safety needs, we use a cable sheath made of refractory material.

High temperature up to 300, and has flame retardant effect.

And with our iron fuel standpipe, it’s very convenient to directly pick fuel from the fuel tank for heater use.
