Hazardous Location Convection Heaters

Hazardous Location Convection Heaters are similar to unit heaters except for the fact that they do not use built in fans to circulate air.  They have several advantages, including silent operation and mounting versatility.  Like Explosion Proof Unit Heaters, they are design for use in hazardous locations and carry multiple 3rd party certifications.

CVEP Explosion Proof Convection Heater

Type CVEP explosion proof convection heater is designed to provide a rugged, corrosion-resistant heat source for areas where volatile flammable liquids, gases or vapors are present. All basic models without controls are UL listed and CSA certified for use in areas designated as Class 1, Division 1 or 2 Group B, C or D locations.

RAR-EX Hazardous Location Convection Heater

RAR-EX convection heaters are designed for harsh, industrial applications requiring equipment certified for hazardous locations. They feature a rugged, corrosion resistant metal sheathed element and coated steel fins that can withstand wet, corrosive environments. The ATEX certification covers IIC gas groups for Zones 1 and 2. And an ingress protection rating of IP55 prevents moisture and dust from penetrating the terminal enclosure. The low watt density heating element allows for use in ambient temperatures up to 40°C (104°F), while maintaining the required temperature classification. RAR-EX heaters are supplied with floor mounting brackets.

RIA2 Hazardous Location Convection Heater

RIA2 convection heaters are designed for harsh, industrial applications requiring equipment certified for hazardous locations. They feature a rugged, corrosion resistant case surrounding 304 stainless steel finned heating elements.  The aluminum fins increase heat transfer and minimize the RIA2's surface temperatures.  Heaters are designed for floor mounting and configurations are available with an internally or externally adjustable thermostat, eliminating the need for additional cable or conduit runs. The ATEX certification covers IIC gas groups for Zones 1 and 2. And an ingress protection rating of IP65 prevents moisture and dust from penetrating the terminal enclosure. The ATEX certification covers ambient operating temperatures from -20°C to 40°C (14°F to 104°F) and storage temperatures to -40°C (-40°F).

CAW Hazardous Location Convection Heater

CAW convection heaters are designed for harsh, industrial applications requiring equipment certified for hazardous locations. They feature a rugged, 304 stainless steel corrosion resistant case surrounding heavy duty finned heating elements.  The aluminum fins increase heat transfer and minimize the CAW's surface temperatures.  Heaters are designed for horizontal floor or wall mounting. The ATEX certification covers IIC gas and IIIC dust groups for Zones 1 and 2 and 21 and 22. And an ingress protection rating of IP66 prevents moisture and dust from penetrating the terminal enclosure. The ATEX certification covers ambient operating temperatures from -20°C to 40°C (14°F to 104°F).
