Diesel and Oil Heating for Diesel Engines

Diesel and oil heating

IPU Group’s Diesel Engine Pre-Heating Solutions include the Hotstart lube oil heaters thread into the engine’s oil pan to keep the oil warm and viscous during engine shut-down. When cold, oil becomes very thick and difficult to pump. Upon start-up, warm oil is instantly pumped to the critical wear points in the engine. This reduces engine wear and allows easier starts which prolong battery life.

These heaters, available in various AC voltages as well as 12 and 24 volt DC, range from 75 to 500 watts. Designed for safe, electrical operation, these heaters are available in a weather-tight construction or Class 1, Group D for hazardous location.

Reasons why…

1. Reduced engine wear

  • Stops destructive condensation
  • Quickly heats critical engine components
  • Inhibits the formation of sludge in oil

2. Easier engine starts

  • Prolongs battery life
  • Saves fuel
  • Less warm up time

3. Protects the environment

  • Helps to extend oil life
  • Engine gets to maximum efficiency earlier
  • Quieter running


  • Easy fitment
  • Weather tight versions available for hazardous locations
  • Available in a wide range of voltages and power ratings

Also available…

  • Heaters for just about any type of liquid – hydraulic fluid, water, antifreeze, asphalt, alkalis, petroleum, electroplating, salt solution, wax, cooking oil
  • A wide range of thermostats and temperature controls
