About Industrial and Commercial Electric Unit Heaters
When you choose an electric heating and cooling system, you need to consider the size of your facility, the temperature change you require, and the space you have to install a heater. There are a variety of styles and models available:
Industrial and Commercial Electric Unit Heaters
These are common as a primary or supplementary heat source in gyms, storage facilities, and more. Select models can be permanently installed on the floor, wall, or ceiling, while others, like theFostoria FES-3048-3A Electric Salamander, are portable. For rugged environments, like mine shafts, paper mills, maintenance and welding shops, and chemical plants, theRuffneck RGX Heavy Duty Unit Heater is designed to withstand harsh conditions.
Plenum Rated Heaters
Plenum rated electric unit heaters are made for small enclosed spaces. They can be placed directly in the plenum, but they're also commonly used in bathrooms, crawl spaces, concession stands, and other small rooms. Since they're often situated in harder-to-reach places, plenum rated heaters are designed to be durable, efficient, and low-maintenance. There are dozens of models requiring zero clearance and equipped with features like fan-only options, built-in disconnect switches, external thermostat control, high limit thermal cutout, and more.
Washdown Electric Heaters
Facilities like water treatment plants, steel mills, car washes, drilling platforms, and food processing plants require frequent hose-down cleaning. Washdown electric heaters are made for these environments with corrosion-resistant housing and fully enclosed internal parts. They provide powerful heating while withstanding humidity, excess moisture, and water pressure.
Hazardous Location Heaters
Like other electric unit heaters, hazardous location heaters are available in a range of sizes for mounting on the ceiling, floor, or wall. However, these are specially designed for use in oil refineries, paint shops, dry cleaning facilities, and other locations where flammable fibers, dust, gases, and vapors may be present. They're manufactured under stringent standards for safety.
