Three typical cab heater designs are shown below, all with covers removed for clarity. INDEECO designs and fabricates the heating elements, sheet metal enclosures and internal wiring. These in-house capabilities are unique in the cab heater field. All units are tested after assembly under full power.
Basic Construction Three basic tubular element constructions are Single-Pass Element, Two-Pass Element, Two-Pass, Dual Circuit Element. All have Type 304 stainless steel sheath, surrounded by spiral wound stainless fins when required. The large 0.475” sheath diameter results in extra magnesium oxide insulation for withstanding high voltages.
Eight fins per inch (five fins are standard) for lower element temperatures.
Hermetically sealed terminals.
Mounting hardware, either flanges or threaded fittings.
Leads in place of terminals.
Incoloy 800, Inconel 600 or Monel sheath and Monel fins for particularly corrosive atmospheres.
