If dam gates freeze or suffer from ice or snow build-up, it interferes with the operation of the dam to open and close the flood gates as necessary to control the water levels.
Chromalox Hot Oil System maintains high temperatures necessary to heat jacketed reactors with customized seal-less pump.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Filtration membranes in two waste water treatment tanks at an Iowa ethanol producer were susceptible to damage from freezing temperatures.
