Jet Fuel Fun at home! This winter I am heating my garage with a 75,000 btu multi-fuel forced air heater. These are commonly called torpedo heaters.For those who are not aware how these devices work, similar fuels like Kerosene. Diesel 1/2, and JP8 (Jet Fuel) is ignited and then injected into a high velocity twisting stream of air in a tunnel. For safety and to add radiant heat to the system, the jet flame is focused on a steel plate at the end which glows cherry red. I bought my heater used, so I filled it with JP8 ( cheap where I live) to clean it out since Kerosene is too expensive. I am now running it with Diesel in it. This morning I was adjusting the flame for the diesel mixture that I am going to use for the winter and a few things came to mind. With a standard wick or surface fire JP8/Diesel1,2/Kerosene burns around 820F. The max temp is around 1500 degrees. In a forced air heater like I have, the heater runs about 1450 degrees. The steel plate that is in my heater is about an 1/8 of an inch thick and can easily be bent with tools when cold. When my heater it is glowing with a focused 1450F flame. Yet it stays solid, even with repeated heat/cool cycles every day every winter for decades of use. This had me thinking even more, for that steel plate to become molten it has to reach 2500F which is impossible with JP8 or related fuels. If it could heat to that temp, this type of heater would not be safe. A $200 mixed fuel torpedo heater clearly demonstrates this every time it turns on. This makes one have to think about 9/11 and also Epstein did not kill himself.
