The global impact of COVID-19 on our people and the global economy is significant, and Watlow has taken a comprehensive approach to deal with the current crisis. Our contingency planning includes protecting our team members, communicating often with our customers and partners and maintaining the continuity of supply lines.

At the beginning of the pandemic, we set two priorities that guide our responses and decisions: the health and safety of our team members while continuing to supply essential products needed by our customers.

If you have questions about how the pandemic is impacting Watlow or Watlow’s response, please contact your Watlow representative.

Heater Provides Solution to Low Current Leakage Specification

Problem:

A compact, mobile hyper/hypothermia treatment system is used to stabilize a patient's body temperature. Heated water flows through a specially designed blanket, and, combined with the machine's refrigeration system, provides the means to restore a patent's normal body temperature. The heaters must meet the UL® low current leakage requirement of 15 micro amps at 120VAC established under their guidelines for medical equipment.

Solution:

A FIREROD® immersion heater Type LL low current leakage cartridge heater, equipped with ground lead, met all applicable current leakage safety specifications.
