Titan Pad Heaters are constructed of materials resistant to the effects of oil, grease, dirt and water.
Direct blasts with the pressure washers used in engine cleaning should be avoided.
Pad Heaters, both Engine Oil and Hydraulic Heaters were released to market in the Spring of 1988 following 3 years of developmental work and testing.
Titan Heaters have a lifetime warranty, contact us for detailed information.
Titan Pad Heaters are thin Flexible heating pads built to conform to the outside surface of an engine oil sump or any metal fluid reservoir.
Yes. We can make Pad Heaters to suit any dimension, wattage, or voltage. If a heater doesn't exist for your particular application, we can make one that does, please contact us with your requirement.
Yes, Pad Heaters are suitable for all types of transmissions.
Yes. There are Titan Pad Heaters available in 120 & 240 volts A.C. and 12 & 24 volts D.C.
YES, Titan Heaters will save you money by increasing engine and starter life. They are maintenance free and use much less electricity than a block heater.
We recommend against an installation on a diesel fuel tank due to the possibility of overheating the fuel supply.
A Heated oil supply results in:
1) Less drag for quicker startup
2) Immediate oil flow to reduce engine wear
3) Greatly reduced water and acid contamination of oil
No, when the Titan Heater is sized correctly, a thermostat is not required.
Titan Heaters raise oil temperatures to approximate operating levels.
Remember HEAT RISES off the heated oil supply.
The crankcase walls along with the cylinder wall, the outer block wall and the coolant between them create a very effective barrier to the loss of heat to the atmosphere. Only a small amount of Heat is absorbed by the coolant resulting in a 15-20° increase in coolant temperature.
YES, the use of any block or tank type coolant heaters can be discontinued.
Pad Heaters , application for application, use less energy than block or tank type coolant heaters.
Titan Pad Heaters are more economical to operate than block heaters. Compare watt ratings.
Pistons are generally warmed to 30°C (85°F) or so when heated with Titan Pad Heaters as governed by variables in engine type and design.
Pad Heaters put Heat into the oil supply. HEAT RISES to warm important INTERNAL components.
Titan Pad Heaters will generally raise cold oil temperatures by 38°C (100°F) in 1.5 - 2 hours.
Full Heating is usually accomplished in 5-6 hours.
Pad Heaters apply Heat to the oil through a very large surface area. Because the temperature of that surface is far below the level that would damage oil, the result is a gentle and even heating.
Titan Heaters do a better job installed at the bottom of the sump (HEAT RISES).
However, a Pad Heater installation on the side of a sump or reservoir will yield excellent results.
Titan Heaters are easily installed by following the step by step instructions and with basic shop tools. Everything needed for a complete installation is included with each heater.
Yes, a Titan Pad Heater can be installed on single plane curves as short as about 1" radius.
They are not to be installed on a compound curve area.
No, the installation of Titan Heaters is of a permanent nature.
