Heat Exchanger and Elements:
Heavy walled, painted carbon steel with aluminum fins liquid heat exchanger, liquid filled with three-immersion type copper sheathed elements. The elements shall have the highest quality nickel-chromium resistance wire encased in a magnesium oxide dielectric and be hermetically sealed into the heat exchanger core. The heat transfer fluid is Ethylene-glycol solution for operation to -49 degrees F (– 45 degrees C). Stainless steel and aluminum pressure relief valve for overpressure.
Thermal Cutout High Limit Protection and Optional Pilot Light:
The capillary type manual reset thermal cutout shall be rated for 6000 cycles of service and mounted in the liquid filled heat exchanger. An optional pilot light to indicate manual reset tripped, if safe operating temperatures are exceeded, is located on control enclosure.
The motor shall be a permanent split capacitor type, permanently lubricated, ball bearing type. The motor shall be rated for hazardous location and operate at rated voltage of heater, 60 Hz, 1725 RPM.
All controls shall be factory installed and wired in a hazardous location enclosure. Contactors and back-up contactors are heavy duty type and break all ungrounded conductors and be rated for 100,000 cycles at full load. Standard 24-Volt control circuit shall be supplied by internal class II transformer. An optional factory wired integral thermostat or standard terminal block for field wiring to optional remote wall thermostat are wired in control panel. No fan delay relay.
Factory mounted and wired hazardous location disconnect switch is available as optional accessory.
Cabinet With Adjustable Louvers:
The Cabinet shall be 14 Gauge, cold rolled steel with powder coated epoxy finish. Plated fan guards with less than 1/4 inch spacing to cover motor and fan shall conform to OSHA Requirements.
Before selecting a hazardous location electric heater refer to Article 500 or other applicable standard referenced in the National Electric Code.
