Hazardous-Area Drum Heaters

Click Here for Free Engineering Assistance

These heaters are suitable for various classes of hazardous environments. They are not rated explosion-proof (Ex) – nor are any high-powered drum heaters, as too much current is required for this rating to be met – but they do have a NEMA-7-rated junction box and a high-limit shutoff with a choice of setpoints. See the description below for more details.

If you are unsure which hazardous area drum heater is right for your application, please send us an e-mail, fill out one of our contact forms, or talk to one of our engineers at (866) 685-4443 to get started.
