Master Portable HeatersWrite a review of Master
The Master brand of industrial heaters for construction sites, manufactured by Desa International prior to that company’s closure, includes forced-air, radiant and convection heaters fueled by kerosene/fuel oil, natural gas and propane. The forced-air heaters are known as torpedo and salamander styles. All Master heaters are portable and, except for the propane tank-top heater designed for use in the garage, are for outdoor use.
The different fuel heaters differ widely in weight. The natural gas forced-air heater weighs 24 pounds to the kerosene heater's 63 pounds; the propane radiant heater is the lightweight at six 6 pounds. The kerosene-fueled heaters have an electric ignition, while the others have electronic direct spark ignition. All have automatic shutoffs. Salamander and torpedo kerosene forced-air heaters have a -30 degree cold start rating, which makes them reliable in variable outdoor settings.
Master manufacturer Desa International filed for bankruptcy and closed in December 2008. Today the Master brand is available through Master Distributors, which also carries Desa heaters under the brand names Universal, All-Pro, Comfort Glow, Vanguard, Reddy and Glo-Warm.
