portable industrial heaters products
The portable, industrial heater Model GT 1400 incorporates a number of innovative heater designs. A small Micro Turbine engine runs the GT 1400 on Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel or ULS Kerosene fuel. From input to output, the JetHeat design is optimized exclusively as a heater. Our competitors, on the other hand, offer equipment that is optimized for rotating equipment or shaft work. They use purchased diesel engines that needlessly waste diesel fuel just to turn the shaft before any heat can be generated.
Dimensions 24" W x 47" L x 24" H (heater core only) Weight 275 lbs. (heater core only) Heat Output 860,000 to 1.4 million BTUs equivalent Fuel Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel or ULS Kerosene Fuel Consumption 3.2 - 5.3 Gallons Per Hour Thermal Efficiency Over 90% Air Flow 3,200-5,200 CFM Air Pressure Up to .7 PSI (20" WC) Air Quality Less than 10 PPM CO & Odorless Air Temperature 145° to 200° F Rise over inlet temperature
The GT 1400 heater uses an internal combustion Micro Turbine with NO external or exposed flame. The burning of the fuel is designed to be contained entirely within the combustion walls.
The JetHeat heater module converts over 90% of the ULSD to usable heat. During operation the diesel fuel is vaporized. This means it is converted to a gas, rather than burned as a liquid, before it enters the combustion chamber. The result is continuously sustained combustion that is highly efficient and extremely clean. You won’t see black smoke come out of a JetHeat GT 1400 like you see on a conventional diesel unit. The output from the JetHeat heater produces clean, breathable air.
The JetHeat heater is air cooled and has no liquid cooling system. Our diesel competitors have conventional liquid cooling systems. These systems allow a fair amount of the radiant heat generated to escape into the environment.
Our design has important benefits to the end user:
- TIME: The fully heated output is extremely rapid. It is usually only 90 seconds from a cold start!
- EFFICIENCY: Unlike our competitors, our outputs are over 90% of our inputs.
- GREEN: Extremely low carbon emissions. Minimal NOx or SO2 is created.
- SERVICABILITY: Designed to be easy to operate, troubleshoot, and service.
The JetHeat GT 1400 utilizes a cutting edge High Bypass Turbofan and Stator System. The fan and stators are specifically designed by JetHeat, ultilizing advanced aerodynamics to achieve high efficiency. JetHeat leads the industry in flow rates and static pressure capabilities, resulting in product performance that our competitors cannot match.
Bottom line: Our heaters produce twice the heat using half of the fuel of competitive products. Better by Design.

Proof of Performance & Patents
We GUARANTEE Performance at -40 Fahrenheit
The JetHeat GT-1400 leads the industry in temperature rise. It provides 185 degrees of rise from zero degrees Fahrenheit, while maintaining 5200 CFM of hot delivered air. The heat or air output is not diminished even at temperatures below -40F.
The GT 1400 heater module is compact measuring a mere 2’ x 2’ x 4’ in size.
Our static pressure is also the best in the business. Because the engine is turbine based, employing a stator and high by-pass turbo fan, the output air is highly compressed. This unique design ensures a high velocity, high pressure heated airstream that is unmatched in its inflating and thawing capabilities. No reciprocating engine based heater system comes close to the GT-1400 in this regard.
How Does JetHeat Compare with the Competition? Twice the Heat at Half the Cost. See for yourself! The engine runs on Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel or ULS Kerosene. Using other grades of fuel may cause engine run issues or contaminate the catalyst, possibly damaging the engine or compromising air output quality.
The JetHeat patented catalyst system is so green, it is capable of providing clean, breathable air that meets OSHA, NIOSH, and ACGIH standards; yielding half the carbon footprint of competing products. Green by design, JetHeat is Carbon Neutral vs. the Competition. The GT-1400 produces no Nox and SO2 greenhouse gasses. The low fuel consumption contributes to substantially less CO and CO2 generation than competitors.

The portable, industrial heater GT 1400 module uses patented technology that sends virtually all of the heated air to the output hose and ducting. Competitors’ products by contrast, suffer heat loss from the diesel engine exhaust stack to the environment. The JetHeat design suffers no such loss, making the GT 1400 the superior choice for industrial, commercial and construction heating applications.
