Process air heaters, in stock and custom designed, are employed in heating air or other gases in ducts, autoclaves, or ovens for many industrial heat applications. Sheathed tubular, finned tubular, and finned strip elements consistently outperform gas, oil, and open coil electric units in both heating efficiency and safety. Elements are available separately for use in OEM equipment. Special materials and custom designs are available for marine applications, power plants, or hazardous applications. Process radiant heaters include a large selection of elements, fixtures, and panels for the best solution where heated process air or direct contact is impossible, impractical, or undesirable. Drying, curing, preheating, shrinking, and thermoforming are frequent applications. Chromalox sensors and controls are available to provide single-source heating systems suited to your commercial heating application.
Finstrip&reg; elements are superior to open
coil elements since the heating coil is completely
encased in a metal sheath, minimizing a shock
hazard due to accidental contact with the
Chromalox designs process air duct heaters specifically for the power generation industry. For instance, our designs optimize the heating of air fed into combustion and prevent condensation.
The forced air heater forces air over very long distances and is usually the choice for heating larger areas.
The metal-sheath type heater is easily installed and may be operated in any position. The units may be mounted to form banks, tunnels or oven sections.
Quartz heaters can be used with many different appilcations, including textiles and non-woven fabrics, plastics, paper and paperboard, and metals. Higher operating temperatures than metal sheath elements permit faster work speeds in some applications.
Wide area radiant heaters can be mounted to radiate in any direction and can reliably operate, with no reduction in radiant output over the life of the heater. The lightweight building block approach allows for a modular installation which is easily expandable.
Ceramic Heaters are used for a number of different applications, including thermoforming, water evaporation, enameling, and powder coat curing.
