Heating Options for Your Storage Building

A U.S. Chemical Storage chemical storage heating option.

When storing chemicals that require a constant temperature at or above 40°F, our heated buildings provide unmatched security and safety for workers and materials. Depending on your needs, we offer explosion proof and non-explosion proof chemical storage heating systems, including convection and forced air heaters.

In addition to temperature-controlled buildings, U.S. Chemical Storage offers a variety of options and accessories such as R30 insulation or higher, insulated personnel and roll-up doors. Completely customizable construction allows you to have a temperature-controlled hazmat chemical storage building that meets any chemical storage regulation.


Types of Heating

Forced Air Heater

Explosion proof forced air heaters are suited for hazardous locations where specific explosive gases or dusts may be present. These heaters are designed for harsh environments such as:

  • Dry indoor industrial applications
  • Oil refineries, petrochemical plants
  • Pulp and paper mills
  • Grain elevators, hazardous waste storage facilities
  • Waste water treatment plants

The explosion proof forced air heater offers a larger junction box for easier installation, additional limit controls and a heavy-duty core. The heater core assembly is contained in a sturdy, epoxy coated 14-gauge steel cabinet which also carries the motor and fan assembly. Adjustable louvers allow directional control of the airflow. A narrow gap, two-piece fan guard is provided as a shield. All fasteners are zinc plated for corrosion protection.

Heater units are UL listed and suitable for the following hazardous location classifications:

  • Class I, Divisions 1 & 2, Groups C & D
  • Class II, Divisions 1, Groups E, F & G
  • Class II, Divisions 2, Groups F & G
  • Class I, Zones 1 & 2, Groups IIA & IIB
  • Temperature Code T3B 165°C (329°F)

Grounding, wiring and breaker size is based on manufacturer recommendations and current NEC. Optional user adjustable thermostat is available, with standard temperature settings from 40⁰ to 85⁰ F. (Higher temperature settings are available with non-standard equipment.)

Non-explosion proof models also available.

Explosion Proof Convection Heaters

Optional one (two, three, etc.) explosion proof convection heaters are suitable for heating hazardous locations. These are ideal for buildings that do not have constant running exhaust fans for up to 70⁰F performance. The design has a sloped top 14-gauge steel cabinet (also available in stainless steel), no exposed copper or brass, high velocity air flow, optional built in thermostat, galvanized steel mounting brackets, and aluminum plate fins.

The heater is suitable for following classifications: Groups A, B, C, D; IIA, IIB, IIC ratings.

Non-explosion proof models also available.
