Chromalox is the Source for Heat and Control Solutions for Marine Applications

Chromalox provides high-quality equipment designed and manufactured to meet the requirements of U.S. Navy and Coast Guard specifications. But that's just one reason to choose Chromalox.

Experience

Chromalox began designing and manufacturing heat and control products in 1917 — nearly 100 years ago. Today we make more kinds of heating elements, sensors, and controls for more industries than anyone in the world. Our products can be found in some of the most unusual and challenging applications, like engine preheaters on the space shuttle. Our depth of experience extends to marine applications, too, where Chromalox products can be found on a variety of military surface ships and submarines.

Innovation

Chromalox can custom-design, custom-engineer, and custom-manufacture innovative products to meet unique application needs. Our innovative spirit can be seen in the non-magnetic-design circulation heaters installed on MCM Avenger Class Minesweepers, and steam boilers small enough to pass through ship hatches for installation and removal. Innovation is what started this company in 1915 when we introduced the world's first metal-sheathed heating element.

Responsiveness

Chromalox will work hard to get you the best product solution quickly. We are responsive partners eager to help you select what you need from our existing product line, or we'll design and produce prototypes for new products and systems in the shortest possible turnaround time. Chromalox also wants to keep you up and running. We maintain vast inventories of repair and replacement parts for immediate shipment and same day or next-day delivery.


Air Intake

Electric duct heaters preheat air coming through the air intake manifold to the engine room to prevent icing on turbine blades in cold climates and for optimum combustion.

Circulation Lube Oil Purifiers

Control panels include process temperature controllers to provide accurate outlet temperatures and high-limit temperature controllers to shut down the system if the heating elements get too hot.

Compartment Heating

Small, lightweight duct heaters are used for shipboard circulating air-heating systems. Surface or recess-mounted fan-forced air heaters heat and circulate air through large spaces.

Fuel Oil Transfer Systems

Circulation heaters are used to manage the viscosity of fuel oil as it is moved from bunker tanks to service tanks.

Galley and Laundry

Compact, low-pressure steam boilers provide on-demand steam for kettles, hot food serving tables, and sink washers in galleys and steam-operated washers, dryers, and presses in laundries.

Laundry

Compact, low-pressure steam boilers provide on-demand steam for steam-operated washers, dryers, and presses in laundries.

Lube Oil Purifiers

Circulation heaters maintain the viscosity of lube oils and aid in the purification process.

 

Lube Oil Settling Tank

Control panels include process temperature controllers to provide accurate outlet temperatures and high-limit temperature controllers to shut down the system if the heating elements get too hot, plus power contactors and necessary fusing and terminal blocks.

Immersion heaters with or without replaceable elements are fitted to lube oil-settling tanks to reduce viscosity, aid in the process of water and other impurities settling out, and preventing microbial contamination.

Lube Oil Sump Tanks

Immersion heaters with or without replaceable elements are fitted to lube oil sump tanks to maintain viscosity.

Shower and Lavatory Heating

Convection air heaters provide even warmth, quietly circulating heat without a fan.

Supplemental Water Heaters

Circulation heaters are used to provide hot water at point-of-use in locations remote from main hot water supplies.

Windshield and Window Defrosting

Installed under and over windshields and windows, fan-forced air heaters prevent the fogging of interior surfaces and the formation of ice on exteriors.
