Thermal System Integration
Thermal systems fully integrate high-limit devices and controls with process air heaters. Thermal system performance is optimized by combining the most appropriate high-limit device, process air heater and control.
Energy Recovery Systems
Secondary and tertiary heat recovery systems can help reduce operating costs. Heat recovery through the use of air-to-air heat exchangers or air-to-thermal fluid systems can be added to equipment to capture heat and return it to the process. Steam or hot/chilled water can be supplied through the addition of waste-heat boilers or absorption chillers. In areas where building heat is required, water/glycol systems can be installed to capture heat from the process and use it to preheat building makeup air.
Thermal Mass Flowmeter
Inline flowmeter and probes have integral or remote microprocessor electronics. Model 6000 is designed for natural gas service. It has a noninvasive design, no pressure drop, a corrosion-proof design and end connections to suit the user's requirements.

Self-Cleaning Water Filter
Filter protects heat exchangers and prevent clogging of nozzles, tubes and other narrow passages by removing dirt particles down to micron size, of any specific gravity, from once-through and recirculating cooling water systems. Line-pressure powered, the filter cleans itself without external power and does not interrupt system flow. It installs in any position and is available for flow rates from 10 to 10,000 gal/min.
High Temperature Ceramic Adhesive
Ceramacast 586 can be used to assemble heaters, igniters, filters and other high-temperature components used in applications as high as 2,800oF (1,535oC). The ceramic adhesive and potting compound is a zirconium-silicate based, phosphate-bonded, chemically setting ceramic compound. The compressive strength is 8,000 psi and the coefficient of thermal expansion is 2.7 ppm/oF (4.9 ppm/oC).

Heat Transfer Fluid Filtration System
Inline filtration system cleans and maintains the efficiency of heat transfer fluids, thermal or hot oils. Filter housing uses proprietary filter elements that can withstand up to 750oF (399oC) system temperatures to enhance oil cleaning at elevated temperatures. Sentinel Series is a stand-alone system that will recirculate a portion of the fluid through the filter unit and discharge the clean fluid downstream into the main piping at a pressure higher than the system. Vector Series offers the same filtering capability except that it uses the existing system pump to recirculate the fluid from the pump discharge through the filter and then to the pump suction.

Compact Air-Diaphragm Valve
HDV Series is constructed from PVC and has a PTFE diaphragm, making it suitable for deionized water and chemical applications. Intended for skid-mounted water and chemical distribution systems, the air-operated valve's compact design eases installation into small spaces.
Butterfly Valve and Actuator
HS Series valve and SY Series actuator have NEMA 4, 4X rating, so they do not need to be protected from wet environments. Other features include a seat and undercut disc design, phenolic stabilizing ring bonded to the back of the elastomer liner, easy-to-read position indicator located on the top of the actuator, and single-handed override system. An internal heater prevents condensation from forming beneath the actuator cover. Circle 367
