The EPX really is the most technologically advanced VAL6 to date. Like the KBE5L, it has a high/low switch to give you more control when you need it. It comes with a fuel pre-heater to allow a smoother run of the fuel to the nozzle, and a higher quality combustion. The advanced monitoring system with color indication lamps makes troubleshooting a breeze when necessary. The 15 gallon tank allows for long-duration running time. The exhaust visor traps the few unburnt fuel fumes escaping from the top of the disk when in operation, forcing them to ignite, thus claiming higher fuel-to-heat efficiency. And let’s not forget the ability to run it from a power inverter out of your vehicle.

The EPX is fitted with an internal thermostat for auto turn-off and turn-on, as well as an attachment for an external thermostat. Unlike typical industrial space heaters, there’s no smell, burning eyes, headaches, nausea, or carbon monoxide to worry about.
