Watlow®, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, is pleased to announce that its SERIES ‘F’ flange immersion heaters are now certified to India’s Petroleum and Explosive Safety Organization’s (PESO) Petroleum Rules, 2002.

PESO is a regulatory body formed by the government of India that regulates the manufacture, import, export, transport, possession, sale and use of explosives, petroleum products and compressed gases by setting standards to ensure the safety and security of public and property from fire and explosion.

PESO’s Petroleum Rules 2002 covers the approval of refineries, petrochemical, oil and gas processing facilities, transport of petroleum by water, land and pipeline, flameproof and other safety equipment for use in areas with flammable gases, and the licensing of storage installations, tanks and trucks for transportation by road and air.

“We are pleased to receive this approval from the government of India,” said Kevin Schloemann, vice president and general manager for Watlow’s energy processes business unit. “Our flange heaters also possess IECEx and ATEX certifications, so the PESO accreditation reassures our customers in India that our products are manufactured to the highest quality standards.”

Watlow’s flange heaters are designed for heating liquids and gases in tanks and pressure vessels and are ideal for applications requiring higher kilowatts. They are easy to install and maintain and are manufactured with Watlow’s WATROD™ or FIREBAR® tubular elements brazed or welded to a flange. The flange heater enclosure is flameproof and every enclosure is pressure tested to ensure the heaters are safe and reliable and meet rigorous standards for electrical safety.
