VBX30E 400V portable blower / heater

The VBX30E is powerful 30Kw (102300btu) portable electric blower / heater designed for space heating in large buildings or high heatloss areas. Its powerful 2200 m3/hr fan runs continuously to rapidly disperse warm air over a wide area rather to spot heat individuals or objects.

Manufactured to a protection class of IPX4 it is suitable for use in factories, workshops, building sites, and marquees etc. The heater can be used in damp environments, but must be protected from drips and direct jets of water, it is not suitable for outdoor use unless it is protected against the elements.

For complete safety the built in overheat cut-out will turn the heater off if it is covered, or if the air inlet or outlet are blocked. The cut-out needs to be manually reset (by pressing the button on the top of the heater) before the heater will restart.

Approvals for the VBX30E 400V fan heater

approvals for the Activair 110v heater

The VBX30E heater has been tested for safety in accordance with the LVD directive, for electro-magnetic interference in accordance with the EMC directive, and is CE marked.

Specifically the VBX30E has been independantly tested to comply with:

  • EN 60335-1:2112
  • EN 60335-2-30:2009+A11
  • EN 62233:2008

Electricity supply requirements

The VBX30E portable blower is fitted with a 63A 5 pin 400V BS EN60309 plug.

The VBX30E is a powerful heater which requires a 5 pin 63A 400V 3 phase socket. The sockets fitted in most commercial buildings are normally the smaller 16A and 32A ones.

Because the VBX30E requires 63A sockets it is possible the standard 3 phase electricity supplies installed in some commercial premises will not be big enough, especially if they already have large electrical loads installed.

Customers should check they already have the necessary 63A sockets, or should confirm with their electrician they can be installed before they order.


The VBX30E 30kw blower is built to the highest standards, and we are confident it is totally reliable. However in the unlikely event that a fault does occur, it has a 1 year return to base warranty.
