Chromalox Extends Heat Transfer Product Line with Enhanced Features and Available Kilowatt Options

Systems now come with greater power ranges and more advanced controllers.

PITTSBURGH, PA, USA — October 1, 2014 — Chromalox, a leader in advanced thermal technologies, has announced expanded capabilities for two electric heat transfer product lines: the MOS (oil) and MWS (water and water/glycol) systems. Standard MOS units are nowavailable in designs up to 500kW, an increase of 350kW. Standard MWS designs up to 600 kW are also available, an increase of 450 kW. 

"These new capabilities for our electric heat transfer systems exceed the ranges and features available from all other competitors in the industry," says Mark Wheeler, Director, Global Product Manager of Systems and Service for Chromalox. "In addition," says Mr. Wheeler, "these systems are now built with our newest 4080 advanced temperature and process controller as a standard feature. This controller offers profiling and data-logging options as well as a graphic/text LCD display. It's designed to improve the efficiency of operation by users, who can take advantage of integrated features designed to reduce start-up time, simplify operation, and minimize downtime."

The expanded capabilities of Chromalox MWS and MOS heat transfer systems suit a variety of industries. Key markets served are chemical, petrochemical, and plastics with applications that include reactors, non-woven fiber, evaporators, dryers, platen presses, roll heating, and jacketed vessels—to name a few. Chromalox MWS systems operate to 300° F (150° C) with either water or water/glycol transfer fluids. MOS systems can be used with most heat transfer oils, and operate to 600° F (315° C) standard, with an option for up to 650° F (343° C) at atmospheric pressure. Both systems contain electric heating cores and advanced controls that assure responsive and precise temperatures in a space saving package. Mr. Wheeler notes that available options make both systems highly configurable for tailoring to specific applications. MOS and MWS improvements will not compromise operations.
