Information for electricians and installers

Installing industrial heaters that are over 30 amps and require a three-phase power supply typically involves working with high-voltage electrical systems. Due to the complexity and safety concerns associated with such installations, it is strongly recommended to consult a licensed electrician or professional industrial heating technician for the job. Nevertheless, I can provide you with a general outline of the installation process for guidance purposes. Keep in mind that specific instructions may vary based on local electrical codes, the heater model, and the setup of your facility.

Consult an electrician: Contact a licensed electrician or industrial heating specialist who can assess your specific requirements, provide advice, and guide you through the installation process.

Determine electrical requirements: Gather information about the electrical requirements of your industrial heater, including the voltage, current rating (amperage), and phase configuration. Ensure that your electrical system can meet these specifications.

Electrical panel assessment: Assess your existing electrical panel to ensure it has sufficient capacity to handle the additional load. If necessary, upgrade the panel or install a new sub-panel dedicated to the heater installation.

Select appropriate wiring and breakers: Based on the electrical requirements of the heater, determine the appropriate wire gauge (thickness) and breaker sizes to handle the load. It is crucial to adhere to local electrical codes and regulations during this process.

Install wiring and conduit: Install conduit (metal or non-metallic) and run the appropriately sized wiring from the electrical panel to the heater location. Ensure proper grounding and follow all safety guidelines during this step.

Install disconnect switches: Install disconnect switches near the heater and at the electrical panel to allow for safe isolation of power during maintenance or emergencies.

Connect the heater: Follow the manufacturer's instructions to connect the heater to the wiring, ensuring proper wire termination and tight connections. Ensure that the heater is properly grounded.

Test the installation: Once the installation is complete, perform a thorough testing procedure to ensure the heater is functioning correctly and safely. Verify voltage levels, amperage, and all safety features.

Obtain necessary permits: Depending on local regulations, you may need to obtain permits for the installation. Check with your local authorities or electrician to ensure compliance.

Remember, working with high-voltage electrical systems can be dangerous. It is essential to prioritize safety, follow local codes and regulations, and seek professional assistance when necessary.
