Hazloc Heaters BTX1-N-A Bi-metal Explosionproof Room Thermostat

Hazloc Heaters BTX1-N-A Bi-metal Explosionproof Room Thermostat

 

Hazloc BTX1-N-A is a bi-metal sensing explosionproof thermostat is suitable for heating and cooling applications such as heaters, exhaust fans and air conditioners with an IP66 rating and suitable for a hydrogen gas atmosphere (Zone Group IIB+H2) – BTX1 is available as a built in option on all sizes of the Hazloc XEU1 hazardous area heater.

The hazardous area thermostat has a temperature adjustment range of 5°C to 25°C, a fast acting bi-metal sensing plate that is unaffected by altitude, dial locking screw to prevent unwanted adjustments, phenolic thermal-break standoffs between the knob and base to prevent heat creep, two (3/4”NPT) openings for easy field wiring and can be field wired from either a vertical or horizontal orientation for flexibility of install.

Hazloc BTX1-N-A has an aluminium housing with no exposed copper or brass provides suitability for H2S environments making the explosionproof thermostats dependable, accurate and robust.
