Older generation catalytic heaters degrade and lose uniformity and heat output. While the catalyst (catalytic pads) may not have been consumed over time, its ability to oxidize gas may be diminished through over-spray contamination and by inert materials that will not burn off. As a result heaters that achieved surface temperatures of 800°F can lose 100-200°F after a few years of use, if operating in a dusty environment.
