FP-CA Flameproof Removable Cartridge Immersion Heaters

<-- Previous Next -->

The range of FP-CA flameproof removable cartridge heaters offers a hazardous area heating solution for oil and similar applications where low heat density is required. The element can be withdrawn for inspection without system drain down. The standard heater consists of a single element or multiple cartridges fitted into a mounting flange. A robust Ex d terminal enclosure protects the electrical connections. The watts density of the element fitted depends upon the media to be heated and the kilowatt rating required.

The FP removable cartridge-type immersion heater range is certified for use in hazardous areas where the atmosphere is classified as a Zone 1 or 2 (IIA, IIB, IIC) gas group, or a Zone 21 or 22 (IIIA, IIIB, IIIC) dust group.
