The FX5-SD is the next generation Ruffneck™ explosion-proof electric air heater, built for severe duty applications that can lead to accelerated wear of electrical components and damage to the heater core. The FX5-SD is specifically designed for severe duty applications including locations with:

  • Fluctuating power quality
  • Temporary power generation
  • High vibration
  • Dirty or corrosive atmospheres or
  • Extended maintenance intervals

Only the Ruffneck™ FX5-SD incorporates a dedicated shunt trip circuit breaker which operates independent of the control circuit. It is triggered by a redundant heater core high temperature limit enabling primary interruption of line power to safely protect the heater core. Additional standard features include a definite purpose high capacity contactor, explosion-proof Arctic Duty motor and heavy gauge wiring to make the FX5-SD the safest and most robust explosion-proof unit heater available. FX5-SD heaters are CULUS approved for use in hazardous locations.

Suitable for the following Hazardous Location Classifications:
Class I, Division 1 & 2, Groups C & D
Class II, Division 1, Groups E, F & G
Class II, Division 2, Groups F & G
Class I, Zones 1 & 2, Groups IIA & IIB
