Watlow® Achieves IECEx ‘e’ Certification on its Tubular Flange Heater

13 August, 2013

St. Louis, MO – Watlow®, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, announced that its tubular flange heater product received the IECEx ‘e’ certification indicating increased safety protection. A partial list of the available features now includes capability for Ex e IIC: T1-6 Gb, up to +80°C (176°F), enclosure / anti-condensation heaters and IP66. Contact Watlow for a complete review of available IEC features and certifications.

The principles of the increased safety protection concept are: no sparking contacts; no semiconductor devices (the failure mode is not possible to ascertain); no hot surface above temperature class; high integrity electrical connections; increased creepage (distance over insulation surface) between live parts and to earth potential; increased clearance distance (through air) between live parts and to earth potential; and high quality materials that have a rated continuous operating temperature of at least 20°C greater than that achieved under rated voltage and at maximum ambient conditions. Achieving the additional IECEx ‘e’ certification provides Watlow customers a guarantee that the products they are buying are safe.   

“Agency certifications, such as the Ex ‘e’ increased safety protection, are important achievements because certification marks are our customer’s assurance that our products meet rigorous standards for safety and reliability,” said Bob Moore, director of product management.

Watlow’s flange heaters are designed for heating liquids and gases in tanks, pressure vessels, vaporizers and similar for applications from 40 to 4,000 kilowatts. They are made with WATROD or FIREBAR tubular elements brazed or welded to a flange.

Typical applications include a variety of thermal processes in the oil, gas and power generation industries. Whenever an indirect or direct heat exchanger is needed, contact Watlow to solve your application needs.
