FIGB-SR Hazardous Area Gas Bottle Heaters (to 120ºC)
Heating in hazardous areas Isopad gas bottle heaters carry IECEx and ATEX system approval. Hazardous area approved designs are equipped with a self-regulating heating system negating the need for a separate temperature limiting device.
Gases today are usually supplied in metal bottles and whilst the removal of the gas is no problem in many applications, in the case of higher-quality gases the cylinder needs to be heated to guarantee complete removal of all of the gas.
The heaters keep the bottles free from ice, maintain a constant pressure within the bottle, and enable the gas to be kept at an optimum processing temperature. In hazardous area conditions additional safety is recommended. These gas bottle heaters are designed to control gaseous media within their classified area and temperature class. These heaters are fully system approved by Baseefa according to the latest standards of ATEX and IECEx. They can be used in hazardous or nonhazardous, ordinary areas. A solid metal housing provides full protection against external forces. Self regulating heating cables ensure safe operation within the several temperature classes additionally controlled by a mechanical thermostat for maintaining individual required gas temperature. Quicksnap fasteners and castors provide ease of installation around the gas bottle.
