The King Electric KBS Series Stainless Steel Unit Heaters are constructed for specialty heating and freeze protection in areas requiring periodic washing or hose-down cleaning of equipment due to dirty, dusty and corrosive environments. The heater is constructed from 16 GA. type 304 stainless steel throughout and Monel400 elements making it extremely corrosion resistant. The Nema 4 wiring compartment is sealed and gasketed making it water tight. All the optional control components are UL listed for use in Nema 4 enclosures.
Stainless Steel Construction. All exterior and interior metal enclosure parts are made from 16 GA. type 304 stainless steel. All fasteners and hardware are stainless steel.
Adjustable Outlet Louver. Stainless steel louvers direct air up or down as needed for the heating application.
Rear Intake Screen. Heavy gauge stainless steel screen protects against foreign objects making accidental contact with the rotating fan blade.
Monel Spiral Fin Elements: The metal sheath element is brazed with spiral fins and then molded into a coil configuration. This combination produces the best heat transfer while eliminating the potential for hot spots by positioning the element in the maximum airflow stream.
Totally Enclosed Fan Motor. Permanently lubricated cast iron epoxy coated motor with enclosed rotor resists moisture and corrosion for long lasting trouble free operation.
Aluminum Fan Blade. Axial flow type mounted directly to the motor shaft for maximum efficiency.
Auto-Reset Thermal Limit Control. Heater shuts off when over temperature conditions exist and automatically resets when the normal operating temperature returns.
The KBS Series Unit Heater is intended for the use in Waste Water Treatment Plants, Car and Truck Washes, Cement Plants, Steel Mills, Canneries and Dairy Facilities, Ship and Marine Docks, and Fish Processors.
