Chromalox Hot Oil System maintains high temperatures necessary to heat jacketed reactors with customized seal-less pump.
A leading maker of household products required process temperature maintenance for its many process tanks and extensive piping.
An infrared lamp paint baking oven was a bottleneck, slowing all production, because it was unable to produce sufficiently high temperatures.
An intricate part in the manufacture of electronic components and solar panels, the polysilicon process, requires high temperatures, high pressure and a low flow rate to succeed.
Chromalox developed a safe, reliable cartridge heater using deep draw technology to prevent in-flight short circuiting of coffeemakers for airlines.
A global manufacturer and supplier of commercial equipment for many of the food service leaders needed a more efficient way to heat a new line of multilevel food warmers.
Silicone laminate heaters provide better heat transfer and cut costs in food warming equipment application.
Metal parts must be thoroughly cleaned so that paint adheres for a good, lasting finish. This process uses a triclorethylene vapor degreasing method.
To reduce risk, it was important to preheat fuel oil used for stand-by power in case there was an interruption of natural gas supply.
In this process, castings with the physical properties of forgings are possible through the use of deeply anodized aluminum molds.
A manufacturer of custom guitars had a need to better control the lamination process for bonding the side panels that make up the guitar body shape.
A Wyoming manufacturer of road repair “crack-filling” mixtures takes refinery byproducts and processes them into a variety of road crack filling mixtures.
The installed system for heating reactors and stills with hot tempering oils was limited in temperature range and could be troublesome. A growing diversity of products required a greater degree of flexibility in temperature range than the hot-oil system could provide.
In this plant, the salt bath heating operation is initiated each working day at 3:00 a.m. by a time clock.
The customer uses piping and metal parts in the fabrication of high speed turbines and compressors. In addition, the customer also rebuilds used turbines and compressors.
A major medical laboratory came to Chromalox when an issue with a lab instrument occurred.
Chromalox silicone laminate heaters solve HVAC laboratory temperature problem.
Dolomite is composed of 60% calcium and 40% magnesium and tends to pick up moisture from rain and fog. The previous evaporation method was air-drying which left the company at the mercy of the weather.
When mining for gold, hazardous chemicals are held and heated within large storage tanks. Immersion Heaters with replaceable elements avoid the necessity and expense of draining tanks to maintain heaters.
An oil and gas production and exploration company’s test chamber, used to evaluate down-hole drilling components, needed heaters that could withstand pressures up to 35,000 pounds per square inch and temperatures up to 500° F.
A Colorado natural gas driller performs hydraulic fracture drilling, using water and steam mixtures.
Impedance heating technology maintains uninterrupted process temperature during generator replacement installation.
Process technology and equipment manufacturing companies use Ethanol and other solvents for CBD extraction. One of the critical requirements in solvent based extractions is the ability to recover and reuse the solvent. While some extractors use steam heat exchangers to evaporate and capture solvent, not all facilities have plant steam available.
Chromalox supplied a circulating hot water system to heat cannabis in an evaporator for the oil extraction process. The previous method did not allow for higher production demands and was not scalable for additional extraction needs.
All semi-conductor wafers, as part of their micro-fabrication, must undergo an etching process which chemically removes layers from the surface of a wafer during manufacturing.
Augers receive the heat they need thanks to Chromalox heat trace cables. Without freeze protection, the system could potentially have problems on start-up.
Filtration membranes in two waste water treatment tanks at an Iowa ethanol producer were susceptible to damage from freezing temperatures.
