Operating a vehicle in winter conditions is never pleasant, but when your propane engine won’t start, you run the risk of being stranded. At hi-Q, we know that no one wants to be left out in the cold. That’s why we designed the ProStart™ — a low-cost electric heater that warms the propane converter, thus solving the problem of engine flooding on start-up.
270 TIMES BETTER THAN GOING WITHOUT
For a problem-free engine start, propane must change from a liquid to a gas inside the converter. In sub-zero weather, the converter cools, hampering its ability to vaporize propane. When an engine is started in the cold, propane flows into the intake manifold as a liquid. Once the temperature warms up, the liquid propane inside the engine expands to 270 times its original volume, causing the engine to flood. ProStart™ provides a warm environment in which the liquid can expand into gas without flooding the engine.
DESIGNED FOR RELIABILITY
ProStart™ is the first electric heater for auto propane converters. It performed flawlessly at -62 ̊C in field-tests under Arctic conditions. CSA certified and tested to operate for a minimum of 1000 cycles, the ProStart™ will give reliable starts for years to come.
EASY TO INSTALL AND ECONOMICAL TO OPERATE
ProStart™ installs in minutes using only an adjustable wrench. Simply attach the appropriate model to the converter and plug it in with your block heater. Because it uses only 100 watts of energy, it’s an inexpensive way to guarantee an easy start in cold weather.
