The new Vegtherm MultiPass (VTMP) provides the heating capability of our old "Mega" (discontinued) with the lower amperage draw of the Vegtherm Standard. Only slightly longer than the Standard. Can also be used to boost coolant temperature, in the coolant loop that is supplying a HotPlate, VM2 or Hotfox (or more than one of these).
The fluid flows back and forth through 4 channels, making more efficient use of the electric heating elements. No direct contact with elements. It is of course larger diameter than the Standard, so a silicone coated fiberglass cover as well as the usual silicone P-clips is provided, to prevent inadvertent contact with the hot surface. Mount to a fender, etc. or, most often, user will need to make a mounting bracket of some sort. Ensure the heater is securely mounted and it's weight is supported properly. A relay and circuit breaker are included. Wiring and connectors are not included, Use standard push on connectors, ring connectors, etc. and 12 GA. AWG automotive wire, easily obtained locally. Dimensions approx. 9" long x 2" x 2". Self-limiting technology prevents overheating, but a Vegsensor can be added if desired to turn the unit off completely once the sensor reaches approx. 90 degrees C. It will turn on again approx. 65 degrees C. Purchase Vegsensor separately.
Fittings are included and will accept 5/16" or 3/8" hose. Use J30R9 (Viton, "high pressure diesel fuel line") for best results when heating veg oil or biodiesel. J30R7, which is cheaper and more commonly available can be used if it is a good quality (not all are equal, despite being the same supposed spec, it seems). We have had acceptable results with the J30R7 we use and sell, especially when used with a Vegsensor so that the heater is not on all the time.
