Electric heater fans a safe option

Fanquip electric heater fans are now being used in many engineering, manufacturing and mining applications in areas traditionally served by gas powered units.

Workplace authorities have expressed concern at the safety of many gas-powered heating, so it makes sense to use electric units.

Fanquip supplies its electric units in either mobile or wall-mounted versions.

They generate efficient and continuous heat at dock stores, warehouses, in factories, on building and construction sites, assembly lines and employee washrooms – generally with lesser running costs.

These electric powered units do not create any danger by leaking poisonous and flammable fuel near welding sparks, flame environments, high impact and friction operations, or in heavily populated work areas.

Fanquip fan heaters operate at a low noise level, making communication easy.

They have no naked flame heat generation, all but eliminating the risks of burns or workplace fires.

In industries using either robotic or human welding lines, the electric heating units can provide the perfect temperature – without flammability risks.

Electric heating is also suited in the petroleum, mining and energy industries, which may contain site gases.

And electric heater fans can be used in manufacturing environments with sensitive electronic and electrical equipment requiring specific operating temperatures.

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