This 1,800 watt heater operates on 120V single phase power, and is ideal for manufacturing plants, chemical processing, refineries, industrial control rooms, airflow systems, heat circulation, ambient temperature management, heat exchanger, oil and gas applications and more.

The Larson Electronics EPH-CH-WM-T2A-1.8KW-120V.1P explosion proof convection heater is an 1,800 watt unit that is designed to run on 120V single phase power. This 15-amp rated heater leverages a standard bottom in, top out air flow configuration during operation which ensures effective and adequate natural air flow for heating in work sites Class 1, Division 1 & 2 rated environments such as chemical processing plants, manufacturing sites and other hazardous areas.

The EPH-CH-WM-T2A-1.8KW-120V.1P explosion proof convection heater is built for rugged use in outdoor environments, constructed of 16 gauge steel coated with a textured epoxy powdered finish. Additionally, this convection heater’s housing is NEMA 4 rated for protection against hazardous conditions, and the ingress of dirt, dust or other harmful elements such as water. This explosion proof heater is T3B temperature-rated, not to be operated in an ambient room temperature above 40ºC. The EPH-CH-WM-T2A-1.8KW-120V.1P features a very slim design for installation in tight spaces, and can be mounted on walls with included wall brackets with a 9” minimum clearance from the bottom of the unit to the floor.
