Heaters - Vehicle Heaters and Industrial Heaters

Vehicle Heater and Industrial Heater Repair Specialist.


We test heaters to establish a diagnosis of the problem. 

  • Pressure test to reveal a leak or leaks

  • Flow test to confirm a choked core

  • Visual checks provide further useful information

Based on the test results, the following options are considered for resolving the heating problem.


  • Tube plate overhaul

  • Rod out core

  • Small leaks in a copper and brass core repairs

  • Top and bottom tank repairs

Recore / Rebuild:

  • Fit a new copper and brass core, which is repairable if future damage is sustained

  • Fit an upgraded core to improve efficiency

  • Build a new copper and brass heater to replace a plastic and aluminium unit.


  • Supply a new aluminium heater, where available.

  • Supply a new copper and brass heater, where available.
