Capillary thermostat (for trace heating) in stainless steel enclosure

Capillary thermostat (for trace heating) in stainless steel enclosure

The long in use proven capillary thermostat and limiters with a 16 A switching capacity are now not only available in glass fiber reinforced polyester enclosures but also in stainless steel enclosures. This is also done for the combination of controller and limiter.
All enclosures are approved to IECEx and ATEX, as well as meet standard requirements of NEMA 4X.
You can use this controller and limiter also directly as a junction box of the heating system. This ease installation and maintenance of trace heating with constant wattage systems.
On our website all the important data can be viewed and both sheet and operating instructions are ready for download.

The IRB2M..VAEx series of fail-safe temperature devices consist of capillary type thermostats with mechanical change-over contacts in stainless steel enclosures. These are commonly used in applications for controlling and connecting single-core heating cables in hazardous areas. The combination of limiter & thermostat allows simple and space-saving connections for electrical trace heating circuits. These stainless steel enclosures are approved to ATEX/IECEx and NEMA 4X and have proven themselves extremely well under harsh environmental conditions and for food & hygiene areas. These rugged & robust enclosures stand up well to aggressive chemicals and severe mechanical impacts.
Specifically, the combination of controller and limiter offers the possibility in the hazardous area to build up a trace heating system for 'controlled design' according to 60079-30.
With 4mm capillaries the capillary tube reacts fast to temperature changes. All limiters are 'fail-safe' constructed i.e. in case of failure, the trace heating is switched off.

With our approval for the controlled design everyone can build up trace heating systems with constant wattage heating tapes, heating cable in polymer sheathing or mineral insulated type. There is no need for further on site approval.
Please contact us if you have questions about the equipment or the construction of a heat-tracing as controlled design.

We will help you quickly and competently.

Quintex GmbH manufactures and supplies material for trace heating (heating tapes, heating cables, controller, connection sets) and explosion protection ( Ex e terminal boxes, pressurized systems, line bushings,own range of local control function, local control stations - all can be specified and ordered online)
We manufacture all our material in our own approved (ATEX, ISO, FM, CSA...) facility.
By this we can guarantee our high level of quality, reliability and in time delivery.

Overpressure system with gas detection for hazardous areas (ATEX/IECEx)
We made a little video to show the ease of use of overpressure system in hazardous areas for un-approved devices. It is the easiest way to bring YOUR device into hazardous area too. The explosion protection at the "overpressure system 2.0" is realized by operating a non-explosion-protected equipment in a protected enclosure. This housing is protected by a durable pressure with air or an inert gas prior to penetrate the enclosure
