TPI Corporation FES15241A Heat Wave Portable Electric
The TPI Corporation FES15241A heat wave portable electric salamander heater has two 10” wheels for portability, a cylindrical (salamander type) steel enclosure that helps provide ruggedness, intake and output screens for safety, and is painted safety yellow for use on construction sites. The finned tubular steel heating element helps draw air flow and discharge heat, while the forced air fan distributes and circulates heat through a room. The heater includes a thermostat for adjustable temperature control from 40 to 100 degrees F, as well as an automatic reset and high-limit cutout switch for overheat protection. A fan-only switch supports air circulation without running the heating element. The 15kW heater can provide a temperature rise up to 45 degrees. The single-phase, 240V wiring is compatible with some appliance circuits. The unit weighs 69 lb. and is compliant to North American safety standards certified by Edison Technology Laboratories (ETL, a division of Intertek Group PLC). It can be used with an SO type power cord (sold separately).
Electric heaters generate warmth through a central heating element that is housed in a reflective enclosure that concentrates the energy produced. An element made of a combination of metals produces heat or infrared energy by the electrical resistance created when an electric current passes through it. Fan-forced heaters pass air over the heating element to expel heat from the enclosure for greater throw and circulation. Radiant heaters do not use a fan, but warm nearby objects through energy transfer. A heater’s voltage and wiring should be matched to the electrical circuit where it is to be used. Heaters are used in a range of commercial applications that include shop floors, construction sites, and industrial buildings. All local electrical codes should be followed when installing permanent mounted electric heating equipment.
This appliance complies with the U.S. Electrical Standard (120V, 60 Hz).
