Safe heating of gas bottles, even in hazardous areas
Ideal for gentle warming and maintaining flow
LMK Thermosafe are pleased to announce their hazardous area heating jackets for gas bottles. These ATEX / IECEx Zones 1, 2, 21 and 22 (T4 and T3 temperature classifications) rated heating jackets are ideal for gentle warming, anti-frosting and calibration gas applications.
They are constructed with a silicone coated glass cloth outer and high density fibreglass insulation. Safe operating conditions are maintained even in the presence of potentially explosive gases and dusts. No transformers are required as they operate using a standard 240v ac supply.
The InteliHeat Flexiplus Gas Bottle Heating Jackets are designed to fit around the common type K and L gas bottles (⌀230mm) and other bottles of a similar size. Other sizes of heating jacket for smaller / larger cylinders are also available.
There are three ‘standard’ options available, one of which is self-limiting, and two of which comes with temperature regulators which sit on the side of the jacket. Model IHF/G/T4 will limit at around 30°C above the ambient temperature on the gas bottle wall when operated at 240v (i.e. with a 20°C ambient temperature, the gas bottle wall temperature will be around 50°C under normal utilisation / draw-off conditions). Models IHF-R/G/T4 and IHF-R/G/T3 come with temperature regulators which can be adjusted inside the (gas) zone.
