Electric Duct Heaters Brochure
ELECTRIC DUCT HEATERSThe Neptronic electric heater is manufactured using the most advanced technologies available. Total automation fromdesign to production using integrated CAD/CAM systems not only assures maximum efficiency, but also prevents errorsin plans and specification data.The most advanced CNC technology for sheet metal fabrication is used in manufacturingthe heaters. All these factors are key to offering standard features that our competitors offer only as options, and allowsus to respond in record time to your needs and to the most demanding specifications.Advantages HECB Networkable Electric Duct Heaters Up to 40kW per sq. ft. (CSA) and 24 kW per sq. ft. (UL) Patented EAS Electronic Air Flow Sensors(US 7,012,223) Modulating, ON/OFF or staging Unique interactive software Standard from 0.5 to 1000 kW, larger loads availableTypical ApplicationsHVAC systemsVAV boxesFan coil unitsLoad bankstestingMake-up air /Air handlersProcess airheatersTransport /Railcar / MarineTypical InstallationSlip-inThe slip-in type electric heatersare designed so that the entireframe can be inserted into the duct.Using a slip-in heater permits theinstallation of the entire ventilationduct system before the heatersbecome available.2FlangedFlanged heaters are designed sothat the heater is an integral part ofthe duct work. The heater frame isattached to matching duct flanges.Standard 1" (25.4mm) flanges onthe heater frame are used to attachit to the duct.neptronic.comRound CollarRound collar electric heaters areavailable for installation on roundduct systems. They are providedwith one male and one femaleadapter for ease of installation.
System OverviewDisconnect switch (Lockable)Cuts the power supply to theheater in order to safely performinstallation and maintenancetasks. (Standard when requiredby code, otherwise optional)EnclosureManufactured with the appropriategalvanized steel gauge to assurerigidity and corrosion protectionSlip-In type framePermits the installation of the entireventilation duct system beforethe heaters become available.Retrofits are much simpler;smaller dimension slip-in heatersrequire no extra supports.Control terminal blockPatented built-in ElectronicAir Flow sensorsNo mechanical air flow switchrequired. Shuts off heater if air flowis too low.Line voltage terminal blockStage fusesProtects the individual heaterstages. (Standard when requiredby code, otherwise optional)Protective screenPrevents accidental contact withheating elements (optional)ContactorProvides power to theindividual stages of the heaterTransformerSupplies power to thecontrol circuit.

MountingVerticalHorizontalRight ExtensionAirFlowTop ExtensionAir FlowCenter ExtensionCenter ExtensionLeft ExtensionBottom ExtensionPanel OptionsBottom Control PanelA bottom control panel can be supplied, when requiredfor easy installation and maintenance.This option is available for all heaters (Slip-in, flangedand round collar) of small dimensions.INSULATION 1" (25.4 MM)Insulated Control PanelAn insulated control panel is recommended for high ducttemperatures. Insulation material, 1" (25.4mm) thick isinstalled between the panel and the hot area to preventcondensation on electrical components.Remote Control PanelIn certain cases it may be more convenient to installthe control panel remotely from the heater or in a separate room.A remote control panel is available as an option.Zero Clearance ConstructionAll Neptronic heaters are designed and approved for zero clearance to combustible material. Zero clearance constructionmeans that there is no restriction on the distance between combustible materials and the section of the duct housing ofthe heater, or the heater itself. The control panel must be accessible for servicing.Enclosure TypesNeptronic heaters come with enclosure types Nema 1 (Standard), Nema 12 (Dust proof), Nema 4 and Nema 4x(Outdoor applications).Special Heaters Process Heaters for applications requiring a high discharge temperature up to 1200ºF with proven standards Heaters to fit in air handling and make-up air units Specially designed for large kW and dimensions4neptronic.com

Heater Selection SoftwareWhether you are an engineer or a contractor, our software allows you to select the required electric heater by enteringbasic data (duct dimensions, airflow, power, voltage, number of stages, control signals, etc.) from a user friendly window.The selection software then calculates the optimum specifications for each electric heater. The comprehensive heaterspecifications, as well as the approval list, may be edited or inserted in the project file.Interactive Online SoftwareLinked to an automated manufacturing process. Neptronic’sweb-based selection software allows you to easily selectthe required electric heater by entering the basic data.Specifications entered aretransformed in parametric designElectric heater is produced byautomated machines Multiple components & options available to design your heaters Allows you to make as many changes as you want in your selection Retrieve immediately your heater’s schedule and specification Creates mechanical and electrical drawings Generates approval specification sheets Saves your project history in a database Access to part list Access to current lead times6neptronic.comHeater is ready in recordtime produced with minimumhuman inputs.
