CCI Thermal Technologies Inc. Introduces the Ruffneck™ FX5-SD Severe Duty Explosion-Proof Electric Air Heater

Edmonton – August 13, 2012 - CCI Thermal Technologies Inc., a leader in advanced heating and filtration solutions, announces the launch of its next generation Ruffneck™ explosion-proof heater, the FX5-SD Severe Duty Explosion-Proof Electric Air Heater.

The FX5-SD is built for severe duty applications that can lead to accelerated wear of electrical components and damage to the heater core, including locations with fluctuating power quality, temporary power generation, high vibration, or extended maintenance intervals. This heater incorporates a dedicated shunt trip circuit breaker which operates independent of the control circuit and is triggered by a redundant heater core high temperature limit enabling primary interruption of line power to safely protect the heater core.

"The FX5-SD has been engineered with enhanced durability and protection to meet the severe duty requirements of our customers,” says Bernie Moore, President and COO. “We are proud to introduce this innovative addition to our industry leading Ruffneck™ family of explosion-proof air heaters.”

As a leader in heating and filtration solutions, CCI Thermal Technologies Inc. is committed to ongoing research, product development and, above all, excellence in customer service.  With facilities across North America, CCI Thermal manufactures five of the top brands in industrial heating and a comprehensive line of engineered industrial filtration products including:
