Electric heater fans gaining ground

Supplier: Fanquip
08 June, 2010

Safe operation of heating systems in flammable and noxious-free areas is being carried out economically with Fanquip electric heater fans in many engineering, manufacturing and mining applications traditionally served by gas powered units.



Supplied in either mobile or wall-mounted versions, Fanquip heater units generate instant and continuous heat with lower running costs than a gas powered equivalent.

By obviating any dependency on combustible fuels, the electric powered units will not create danger by leaking poisonous and flammable fuel.

In industries using either robotic or human welding lines, for instance, electric units are being implemented to provide the desired environment temperature.

In the mining industry, OH&S guidelines require not only the availability of employee shower blocks but also adequate heating to protect the individual's well being.

Therefore, electric heaters are more suitable as the potential presence of site gases makes flame-based gas heating dangerous.

In growing numbers, end user industries turn toward electric heater fans due to a perceived unreliability and higher running cost of reverse cycle air conditioning.

Fanquip electric heater fans do not chew up oxygen to output their heat, thereby reducing the likelihood of employee fatigue and giddiness.

Fanquip heater fans range in element power from the 3.0kW unit generating 10,800kJ of heat through to a 36.0kW unit with 129,600kJ heat energy output.

Wall mounted versions are strategically placed around a fixed workplace to provide optimum heat levels on minimum power requirements.

Mobile heater fans are easily wheeled into position for any operation requiring its heat source to be moved according to floor plan adjustments with varying jobs.
