There are many advantages and unique features that the COMPACT offers:
- Compact Size: This small design is only 13 inches wide. It makes it ideal for applications where there is limited space available.

Standard Construction Features
- Heating Elements: Industrial grade, Type 304 stainless steel finned tubular heating elements are manufactured by Heatrex.
- Terminal Enclosure: A NEMA 7, 9 cast aluminum enclosure with a threaded bottom cover permits easy access to the built-in controls from underneath the heater.
- Housing: Round, 16-gauge stainless steel shroud.
- Grilles: An adjustable stainless steel louvered outlet grille directs airflow 45° up or down and a heavy gauge stainless steel rear grille protects against accidental contact with the fan blade.
- Stainless Steel Swivel Mounting Bracket: Supplied as standard with all COMPACT explosion-proof unit heaters. This multi-purpose bracket can be used for either wall or ceiling mounting.
- Built-in Controls: Include primary and secondary automatic reset overtemperature cutout, controlling contactor, and a time delay relay which will keep the fan running to cool the heating elements after they have been de-energized.
- Fan Motor Assembly: Consist of a 120-volt, 1-phase 60 hertz motor fitted with an aluminum fan blade. The motor that is fully enclosed is an UL Listed for Class I, Group D applications and includes permanently lubricated ball bearings and built-in thermal overload protection. The motor is factory wired into the enclosure to reduce field wiring, but will require a separate 120-volt power supply.
