The three cabinet sizes (from 5 to 30kW) of AEU1 heaters include our ExCaliber high performance liquid-to-air heat-exchanger cores that are available in fourteen 400 Volt, 50 Hz model choices from 5 to 30kW to meet customer specific heat output requirements at supply voltages between 380 V to 440 V and fourteen 480 Volt, 60 Hz models to accommodate North American equipment used in Europe requiring ATEX and IECEx approval.
The rugged and versatile AEU1 heater incorporates a high quality immersion heater, IEC motor connected by cable and cable glands for easy field replacement, a sturdy 2 mm (14 GA) steel cabinet with epoxy/polyester powder coating for corrosion resistance, large control enclosure with an extra port for convenient wiring of an external room thermostat, and enclosure O-rings to minimize moisture ingress.
