A new line of electric circulation heaters provides heat for manufacturing and processing operations. Developed by Heatec Inc., Chattanooga, Tenn., the heaters are used to heat liquids or gases for industrial applications such as chemicals, oil, water, air, nitrogen and steam.
According to the company, the heaters’ removable bundle of resistive elements in the heating chamber eases maintenance and service if needed. The heated fluid comes into direct contact with the hot surfaces of the resistive elements. The elements are powered by electrical current, which can be varied to control the heat output. Electrical current is controlled by a fan-cooled silicone-controlled rectifier (SCR) in the heater’s control panel.
A packaged heater system comes preassembled on a skid with all the necessary components for operation. Learn more at www.heatec.com.
