Duct Heaters are heating units that are installed in close proximity to air ducts in commercial or industrial buildings. Due to their versatility, use and demand for duct heaters is on the rise. Air heating units come in diverse ranges, dimensions and sizes. Such versatility allows for compatibility and easy installation in a variety of heating systems.
Air flow ventilation systems and comfort heating are the primary applications for duct heaters. Other heating applications include (but are not limited to):
On the other hand, process duct heaters are predominantly used for industrial heating applications, for example, ovens requiring forced circulation or re-circulated air.
The numerous industrial applications of air duct heaters have allowed the market to innovate and develop an assortment of products for different air heating installation systems. There are three main types of duct heaters:
The most common type of duct heater available in the market is the bottom mount duct heater. Features for this particulate type of heating unit include:
Flange mounted duct heaters are characterized by the following:
This type of heating unit has the following advantage:
