Modine has announced the launch of the MEW, a new corrosion-resistant electric unit heater that is designed to be used in non-hazardous washdown and corrosive environments.

This new unit provides a heating option for use in the farming and agriculture, food and beverage production, car wash, oil and gas, petrochemical and dairy industries.

The MEW fills the market demand between Modine's full 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.

Vice president and general manager of Modine's Heating business, Jon Schlemmer, said the company is uniquely qualified to provide an array of heating solutions for any environment.

"The Modine MEW is a new generation of NEMA 4X corrosion-resistant heater 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 in the market fall short,” he said.

"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 catalogue.”

The MEW provides NEMA 4X protection against water penetration for longer life in corrosive or washdown environments, and the Epoxy-coated fan blade contributes to longer operational life. In addition, the stainless-steel elements add corrosion protection and improved heat distribution.

The solution features a 16-gauge stainless-steel cabinet that offers industrial-grade durability and has 120V controls that allow for better contractor pull-in reliability.
