“T&D are very excited about the EXHEAT MFH and foresee excellent opportunities to support our clients with their requirements for a long overdue portable heating solution for use in explosive atmospheres.

We believe the hazardous area heater is unrivalled in terms of capability, quality and performance.

Since introducing this ATEX fan heater to our clients, interest has been very high and first orders have now been received. T&D have over 25 years experience selling process heating equipment and this has to be one of the best innovations we have seen in that time.”

“When developing The Bulldog we aimed to combine an efficient product design with simple functionality. The Bulldog is the world’s first truly portable heating solution for use in hazardous environments. It is a lightweight, tough and durable electric fan heater that can provide a stream of warm air up to 5 meters distance”, said Katrina Parrott, General Manager, EXHEAT Industrial.

“We listened closely to our customers and extensively researched the market in order to create a product that truly fills a gap in the hazardous area heating market. Initial client feedback has been extremely positive and, working alongside outstanding distributors such as Thorne & Derrick, we know The Bulldog will become an industry leading product,”
