Heat and Control Applications
Construction and Personnel Heating
Blower heaters and air handlers provide comfort heating for personnel, for warming equipment in enclosed spaces, and for curing materials in construction areas.
Air Intake Heaters
Large electric duct heaters warm incoming air that is mixed with pulverized coal for efficient combustion.
Fire Water Storage
Large-tank heaters with replaceable elements ensure operational readiness with freeze protection service.
Hazardous Area Heating
Explosion-certified heaters are rated for hazardous areas and hose-washdown capable.
Coal Hopper Heaters
High-temperature modular heaters installed on the sides of baghouse hoppers between the insulation and the hopper wall provide blanket heat coverage to help prevent acid condensation and corrosion.
High-Pressure Steam Piping
High-temperature metal-sheathed heating cable is used for freeze protection on high-pressure steam piping in hazardous-rated areas.
Service and Maintenance
Yearly service visits ensure optimal operating conditions and help predict needed maintenance.
Auxiliary Steam Generators
Compact, low-pressure electric steam boilers provide on-demand steam supplies for super critical times during start up and peak demands.
Temperature Controls, Sensors, and Control Panels
Thermocouple and RTD sensors, electronic PID DIN temperature control units, and SCR power switching panels minimize temperature swings to increase life of the heaters and tighter control.
Lubricating Oils for Turbines and Compressors
Immersion heaters warm lube oil for lubrication of bearings and moving components of turbines and compressors.
Heat trace counteracts the heat loss from process equipment and piping through its insulation, prevents solution precipitation, prevents increase of viscosity or solidification of product, and provides freeze protection.
