RACINE launches corrosion-resistant Electric Unit Heater for non-hazardous washdown environments

MEW Electric Unit Heaters

Modine introduces the MEW, a corrosion-resistant electric unit heater suitable for various industries, including farming, agriculture, food and beverage manufacturing, vehicle wash, oil and gas, petrochemical, and dairy, offering NEMA 4X protection.

RACINE, a leader in creative heating solutions for the HVAC industry, has introduced the MEW, a new corrosion-resistant electric unit heater designed for use in non-hazardous washdown and corrosive environments. This innovative machine offers a heating solution for the farming and agriculture, food and beverage manufacturing, vehicle wash, oil and gas, petrochemical, and dairy industries.

This is the company’s recent product launch, expanding its electric heater offerings to ful-fill client wants and requests. The MEW bridges the gap between Modine’s comprehensive line of commercial electric heaters (HER/VE/PTE) and its top-tier explosion-proof offering (HEX).

The MEW is the fifth new electric product Modine has brought to market in the past 12 months. With the addition of the Amp Dawg electric heater, MES no-light infrared electric heater, MEQ light commercial electric infrared heater and the MEL heavy-duty infrared electric heater, Modine continues to provide customers options for lower carbon emissions heating or an alternative for those who do not have access to natural or propane gas.

“Modine is uniquely qualified to provide an array of heating solutions that solve our customers’ heating needs no matter the environment,” said Jon Schlemmer, Vice President and General Manager of Modine’s Heating business. “The Modine® MEW is a new generation of NEMA 4X corrosion-resistant heaters for those highly corrosive or washdown areas. With the launch of this new unit, we are empowering contractors by providing a state-of-the-art heating solution that can be applied where other products on the market fall short.”

“The MEW is another step for Modine as we continue establishing ourselves as the leader of innovative heating solutions in the HVAC industry by expanding our product catalog,” Schlemmer added.

The MEW has NEMA 4X protection against water penetration, allowing it to last longer in corrosive or washdown settings, and the epoxy-coated fan blade adds to its operational life. In addition, the stainless-steel parts provide corrosion prevention and optimise heat distribution.
