  • The heater is designed for integration into a ventilation system and joint operation with an air handling unit equipped with a control system used to switch on the heater and control its operation.
  • The heater maintains the supply duct air temperature at a point set by the unit controller.
  • The casing, the junction box and the heater cover are made of galvanized steel with the heating elements in stainless steel.
  • The heater casing is additionally heat-insulated with 20 mm non-flammable mineral wool layer.
  • The heaters are equipped with rubber seals for airtight connection to the air ducts.
  • The NKD duct heaters are equipped with a power and a signal cable for connection of the heater to the air handling unit controller.
  • The temperature is controlled by a triac power controller by means of  switching the full load on and off.
  • Load commutation is carried out by the semiconductor device (triac).
  • The heaters are equipped with overheat thermostats:
    ⏵main overheat protection with automatic reset at +50 °C;
    ⏵emergency overheat protection with manual reset at +90 °C.
  • The heater design ensures its mounting on the round ducts in any position by means of clamps (included in delivery).
  • The air flow direction shall match the direction of the arrow on the heater casing.
  • The heater is connected to the air handling unit controller using the cable with connectors.
  • In case of horizontal mounting the control box must be installed with the cover upwards.
  • Swivel range from the normal position up to max. 90°.
  • Do not install the control box with the cover downwards.

The NKD heater parameters calculation example:

  • It is necessary to select a heater for supply air post-heating to a temperature of +24 °C, provided the temperature downstream of the heat exchanger is +17 °C. Therefore, it is essential to increase temperature by 7 °C. The ventilation system incorporates the VENTS VUT 350 VB EC A19 air handling unit.  The rated air flow is  400 m³/h. Determine the intersection of the post-heating temperature line (+7 °C) and the rated air flow line (400 m³/h).
  • In this case the 1200 W heater capacity provides necessary post-heating (+7 °C). The heater NKD 160-1.2-1 with the diameter matching the spigot diameter of the VUT 350 VB EC A11 air handling unit is a suitable model.
