Watlow obtained KGS certification on its flange and circulation heaters. The accreditation provides supplemental certification to Watlow’s IEC SP-892 Ex eb certification for its electric heat exchangers that operate in hazardous locations. Both IEC and KGS certifications are intended to ensure customers that products are safe and effective, even in potentially explosive environments.

The Korea Gas Safety Corp. (KGS) is a governmental organization subordinated under the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE). KGS was accredited as a Korea-notified inspection body in 2006, and the group assists the Korean government with defining and inspecting industrial and domestic gas-based equipment to ensure public safety.

Watlow’s circulation heaters offer a ready-made solution for electric heating because the heating elements, vessel, insulation, termination enclosure, mounting brackets and inlet and outlet connections are included for a complete assembly. Watlow’s flange heaters are designed for heating liquids and gases in tanks and pressure vessels and are suited for applications requiring higher kilowatts.

Based in St. Louis, Watlow designs and manufactures industrial thermal systems.
