Large-Tank Heaters

Chromalox large tank heaters provide cost-efficient heating of stored viscous materials by precisely sequencing operation to take advantage of off-peak electricity rates. They require very little upkeep and maintenance. That helps reduce both labor cost and the time and material costs of inefficient heating. Chromalox offers a number of large tank heater solutions to meet the needs of petrochemical plants. Click here to visit catalog

Catalyst
Regeneration

Chromalox prewired, skid-mounted circulation heat systems provide high performance for the burning, reduction gas, and calcination gas heaters inside catalyst regeneration units. Flanged immersion elements provide superior strength and rigidity, and can be easily removed for cleaning and inspection. Heater vessels come in an array of sizes and meet virtually any kilowatt or corrsion resistance requirement. And their metal skid mounts, with vessel and control panel securely attached to the frame supports, enable easy handling. Click here to visit catalog

Heat Trace & Controls

Heat trace is used to counteract the heat loss from process equipment and piping through its insulation, to prevent solution precipitation and the increase of viscosity or solidification of product, and to provide freeze protection. Chromalox offers a variety of heat trace cable; temperature control, monitoring, and management in one, modular package; and all of the necessary components needed to complete the installation, including splices, power connection boxes, and water-resistant end-seal terminations.
