Description The Chromalox ChromaStar infra-red comfort heaters are designed to provide a rugged source of heat for use in areas where dependence on air movement is impractical. The heaters are versatile, designed to provide warmth directly where it is needed for primary or spot heating applications. Each unit is constructed for long life and requires minimal maintenance. There are no moving parts or motors to Wear out, no air filters or lubrication required.
All Chromalox ChromaStar radiant heaters feature the exclusive "Arctic End" Patent Pending heating element terminal construction. This feature lowers the terminal box temperatures resulting in extended element and wiring life.
Extruded aluminum housings are rigid to provide added protection to the heating elements located at the focal point of a built-in mirrored aluminum reflector(s).
The heater(s) consist of hairpin bent .430" diameter alloy sheath tubular element(s) constructed of high quality resistance wire embedded in carefully selected MgO refractory insulation. The element feature "Arctic end" terminal construction for longer life and cooler terminal enclosure temperatures. The element(s) also feature terminal construction using a waged-in silicone bushings that produce Unequalled resistance to moisture absorption. The heating element(s) connect to a gasketed, moisture resistant terminal enclosure with liquid-tight bulkhead threaded fittings. An extension reflector constructed of 0.050" mirrored aluminum extends over the assembly to provide a more uniform heating pattern.
PortableAll portable heaters are supplied fully assembled to a rugged, chrome-nickel plated tubular steel cart and handle (1.5 and 2.0 kW heater has a fixed pedestal). The cart features large wheels for easy portability. All portable heaters include safety grills to protect personnel from contacting hot elements.
