Electric Explosion-Proof Convectors
Hazardous locations are those that contain potentially explosive substances, including liquids, gases, dust, fibers, and more. These locations are divided into three classes (then further divided into divisions and groups):
Class I: Presence of flammable gases and vapors as found in petroleum refineries, dry cleaning plants, aircraft hangars, gas storage and handling facilities, and more.
Class II: Presence of combustible dust as found in grain elevators, plastic production facilities, magnesium or aluminum powder manufacturing or storage facilities, and more.
Class III: Presence of ignitable fibers as found in textile mills, cotton gins, wood pulverizing or shaping plants, and more.
In all cases, temperature and moisture control is essential for worker safety and equipment functionality and longevity. Specially-made explosion-proof convectors provide clean, reliable heat in these hazardous locations, and each is designed and approved for certain classes/divisions so you can rest assured your heater meets safety regulations.
