Designed for use in hazardous areas with explosion-resistant cast aluminum terminal enclosure and redundant over temperature protection. Sized to fit the duct. Heavy wall, large diameter finned tubular elements, individually removable for servicing. Tubular and finned designs can provide outlet air temperatures up to 650C (1200F) for industrial heating applications. Applications include petrochemical plants, aircraft hangars, fueling areas, oil drilling rigs, sewage treatment plants, pipeline pumping stations, paint spray booths, storage areas for flammable products, labs or testing areas.
Wattco explosion proof duct heaters is the solution to the problem of heating equipment and products where Class 1, Groups B, C, D hazardous gases or vapors exist. This heater provides a clean safe source of heat for hazardous areas found in extraordinary environments.
