BriskHeat now offers ATEX Certified Heaters and Controls.
BriskHeat now offers New ATEX-Certified Container Heaters. These heaters are ideal for a wide range of hazardous-area gas and dust environment heating applications. Fully insulated and water resistant, these heaters are also suitable for use in outdoor or wet environments as ATEX containers are IP 65 rated. Additionally, they can be sufficient in some locations in place of Class 1 Division 2 Hazardous ratings. Must be accompanied by the ATEX-rated controller.
The heaters are designed to protect the contents of bulk containers such as drums, IBC tanks and gas bottles from damage due to cold temperatures and can be safely used in hazardous areas. They can also be used for warming.
Industries such as petrochemical, oil and gas, cosmetics, fertilizers, pharmaceutical, and specialty gasses often need to store and dispense many types of liquids and gasses within designated hazardous areas. They’re rated IP65/I and acceptable for indoor or outdoor use. Common containers include 200-220 litre/55-gallon drums, 1000 litre/250-gallon IBC tanks, and 10, 50, and 79-litre gas bottles.
“If a heater isn’t used to protect or heat the contents of a container the increase of production time and cost or damage to equipment could be very costly and cause serious downtime,” said Klaus Kolleck, Vice President of European Sales, BriskHeat. “For facility maintenance managers, process engineers and production managers who routinely deal with these containers in hazardous areas, BriskHeat’s new ATEX-certified heaters are the solution they need.”
Additionally, BriskHeat offers an ATEX-certified temperature controller/high-limit combination unit for use with all ATEX heaters. It features an operating temperature control, high-limit temperature limiter, a power limiting control, a clear window to easily monitor temperature, 25-amp capacity, and a temperature controlling range up to 450°C.
