Master XL61 – Infrared Oil Heater

The XL 61 infrared oil fired heater with Master burner.

Infrared oil heaters deliver heat fast and exactly to the place where it is required without any air movement. They are excellent at providing direct heat with minimal air disturbance.

Similar to the sun, short-wave infrared radiation heats the objects without heating the air. Once objects are penetrated with heat, they can also reradiate and heat other objects. Infrared radiation heats through fog or wind. Infrared radiation travels straight, unlike hot air which rises. Infrared heaters are an excellent solution for the direct application of targeted heat, such as for drying or wetness evaporation. 

As with all Master heaters, the XL 61 is plug and play: they do not need installation. They are portable, can warm up very quickly, and can be controlled by a remote thermostat. Master heaters are designed to minimise environmental impact, they are robust and designed to last many years. Spare parts are also available for at least 10 years, increasing life expectancy. Master offers a 3-year warranty on all products for peace of mind.
