Chromalox announced the availability of a new extreme duty model of its blower heater line. Called the CXH-XD blower heater, the new unit withstands corrosive and wet environments and is ATEX certified. It extends the capabilities of the company's CXH-A/EP models, which heat areas classified as hazardous locations to provide primary or supplementary heating for comfort or freeze protection.
CXH-XD enhancements include a corrosion-resistant coated heat exchanger, optional 316 stainless steel and epoxy-coated frames. Chromalox is also proud to announce that the CXH-XD will include the industry's first IP66, corrosion resistant and washdown rated fan motor. Chromalox expects the enhancements to make the blower heater suitable for extreme environments in industrial settings such as onshore and offshore drilling platforms, pump houses, power generating stations, water and waste water plants, chemical storage facilities and pipeline metering stations, among others.
