Assuring Your Process Performance with Chromalox

The Chromalox Difference

Some companies build heaters and controls. Chromalox does more.

Chromalox brings a dual focus to the marketplace. We focus on precision in the design and manufacture of our products and precision in their performance in order to provide the finest products for your application. And we focus on your specific application with the insight to help maximize its performance and efficiency, and the technical support to help you achieve it.

Chromalox Understands Every Facet of the Process

We provide precision heat and control systems for more processes than anyone in the world. Our expertise, combined with the most stringent material and manufacturing standards you'll find in the industry, provides you with an array of products you can count on to perform at each critical process phase. Among them are process air heaters for inlet housings, circulation heaters for superheating, flanged immersion heaters for sulfur reduction, self-regulating cables and controls for freeze protection, and explosion-resistant comfort heaters that keep process equipment warm for quick starts on peaker plants and free from moisture and freeze-ups.

 

Chromalox Meets Your Specific Challenges

With that kind of experience behind us, Chromalox understands the unique challenges that power plant builders, managers, and maintenance personnel face. And we have the knowledge, experience base, local support, and technical skills to meet those challenges with you.

Technologies That Reflect an Understanding Of Power Generation

Chromalox Can Save You Time and Money

Our standardized designs can reduce your installed cost as well as your eventual replacement cost. Our electric process heaters require minimal cleaning and calibration. Using Chromalox thirdparty-certified electric package systems results in reduced insurance premiums for you-lower than those offered to competitors using fuel-fired systems.

 

Chromalox Can Improve Your Process Efficiency

Chromalox control panels, coupled with the precision and reliability of Chromalox heaters, optimize temperature control and shrink variations in efficiencies, allowing a better burn. Chromalox power controls, SCRs, and proprietary software precisely sequence heaters, balance electrical loads, control soft starts, and correct power factors, flattening out electrical fluctuations.

Unrivaled Design, Engineering, and Manufacturing Capabilities Focused On Your Complete Heat and Control Application

Front-End Engineering Design Assistance

Chromalox has more experience in process design than anyone else in the industry. Prior to construction, let us put that experience to work for you. Accurate planning and sound engineering are keys to any process. Our engineering support staff can help to properly specify equipment that will get the job done right the first time so when you enter the construction phase, you can be sure that the specified equipment will operate as desired.

Comprehensive Engineering Capabilities

From heater assemblies and skid fabrication to integration with controls and sensors, our complete engineered systems reduce installation labor, reduce starup time, and ensure proper operation to specification. Chromalox provides engineering assistance with integrating our products into your application, offering a full range of engineering capabilities. Our in-house engineering and software capabilities allow us to design simple operator interfaces. These advanced designs can reduce your business' training time and expense, as well as increase repeatable operation. In addition, Chromalox has training tools and resources to assist you with installation, startup, and operation.

Custom Design and Manufacturing for Unique Requirements

If an element, sensor, control, or packaged system that we carry in stock doesn't exactly fit your needs, we'll custom-build it-either by expertly adapting an existing product or by designing and manufacturing a completely new one. Our design engineers have won industry awards for innovation and rapid turnaround of custom designs. They bring expert knowledge in process engineering design together with a flair for innovation to help you produce prototypes of new products and systems, developing an innovative design in the shortest possible turnaround time.
