Lube Oil Heaters
Series HL is suited for heating oils used in fluid power and machine lubrication applications. They are designed with low watt densities (approximately 10 W/in2) to allow direct immersion into storage vessels, and they are designed from 0.5 to 12 KW for mounting via 2, 2.5 and 3” NPT screw plugs as well as the company’s 4.5” OD flange. Lube oil heaters are intended for heating oils used in gearboxes and machine lubrication applications. Lube heaters are designed with watt densities of 23 W/in2 for SAE 10-30 oil and 13 W/in2 for SAE 40-50 oil to allow direct immersion into the storage vessel. They can be used to maintain a desired temperature within lubrication oil reservoirs or for compressors, turbines, and lubrication of gears, bearings and machinery. Read more!

Vibrating Fluid Bed Dryers and Coolers
Process heating equipment skids include standard unitary steel bases that allow cover-lift hoists, process air ductwork, control panels, monitoring instrumentation and other auxiliary equipment to be attached to the system as a single unit. Providing a dedicated, non-moving foundation, the bases ease process integration, add flexibility in installation and ensure ancillary support systems may be installed on the same footprint, rather than set separately or left unspecified. The bases are designed for use with the company’s vibrating fluidized bed drying and cooling systems, which are used to process foods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, minerals, plastics and other products. The support bases are weighted to minimize vibratory reaction forces and permit installation on mezzanines, light steel structures and on other above-grade locations. Read more!
Ovens Designed for Catheter Manufacturers
An oven designed specifically for catheter manufacturers includes vertical airflow to keep cross wind from blowing the catheter tubes around. The oven employs a tall vertical configuration and a truck-and-dolly system with a rack for hanging catheters. The small footprint saves floor space while allowing room to hang catheters up to 80” long inside the chamber. A stainless steel interior eases cleaning. The oven can be used to cure and dry coatings and linings that protect against urinary tract infection or increase lubricity to ease the discomfort of insertion, or for adhesive drying or annealing.

Batch Oven Cures, Dries Resin Waste
Electrically heated batch oven, designed for curing composite products, has a maximum operating temperature of 300°F (149°C). It can be be used for curing and drying resin waste from a pultrusion process and mixing activities. Combination airflow provides horizontal and vertical upward flow to maximize heating rates and temperature uniformity of the product. A through-port mounted on the oven side wall allows sensors to be passed into the heating chamber. Read more!

Forced-Draft Industrial Burner
With a firing range of 15,000 to 200,000 MBH, Model FDR(X) combines a windbox, air register, ignition assembly, fuel train, flame-safety control, combustion control, flue-gas recirculation system and forced-draft blower into a packaged unit. The forced-draft register burner was designed to optimize performance in power plant applications. To reduce downtime, the primary air register setting can be adjusted from the outside of the burner, without shutting down, pulling the burner, or accessing the inside of the windbox. This means flame length shaping can be adjusted precisely during operation. The burner design is available in single- or multi-fuel models, and it can operate on natural gas, liquid propane, coke oven, refinery and low BTU gases, low and high viscosity fuel oils, and asphalt and tail oils.

Flame Arrestors for Oil-and-Gas Applications
BelGas FM flame arrestors stop ignited vapors from traveling backward into the vent line or tank, preventing explosions, burns and other hazards. The line of flame arrestors includes burner, inline, stack and vent arrestors. Features included a face plate with a pressed, sealed sight glass rather than one that is welded or held in place with a lock nut. This eliminates seams and gaps, reduces the chance of leaks, and helps the arrestor better withstand equipment vibration. Read more!
ProFire SBR-5 Series is compatible with boiler types such as firetube and watertube. The burner series is capable of less than 5 ppm x emissions with flue-gas recirculation (FGR). Designed for use with applications where strict emission levels must be met, the burner line includes a natural gas fuel option from 10.5 to 42 million BTU/hr. Also, it is capable of firing ASTM 2D-S15 (ultra-low sulfur diesel) as a backup fuel at x levels below 40 ppm. The burner has a unique fire head design to achieve controlled combustion with 3 percent O2 achievable for all firing rates. It provides up to 6:1 turndown on natural gas. Read more!
Single-Color Pyrometer for Noncontact Temperature Measurement
The digital PSC-52LT with integrated laser aiming operates in the 8 to 14 micron spectral range and is designed for precise temperature measurement of low reflective surfaces and materials. Typical applications include paper and packaging, food, glass and ceramics, conveyed materials, wood and composites, and textiles. It is also suitable for rubber, plastics and gypsum board applications. The single-color pyrometer operates in the 32 to 1832°F (0 to 1000°C) temperature range with adjustable sub-temperature ranges. It has a fast, adjustable response time of 100 ms, and it is capable of measuring spot sizes from 0.24” (6 mm). The sensor’s standard loop-powered 4 to 20 mA linear output signal facilitates simple implementation into existing measurement and control systems. It can be connected to a computer via USB interface. The sensor’s parameters (transmissivity, ambient radiation, etc.) are adjusted through the operator’s PC, with the exception of emissivity. Emissivity must be changed utilizing the potentiometers located on the rear panel of the sensor. Read more!

Jumbo Walk-In Oven Used to Heat Molds
An electrically heated jumbo walk-in oven with a maximum temperature of 500°F (260°C) can be used for heating molds. To heat the oven, 360 kW are installed in Incoloy-sheathed tubular elements, and 49,000 cfm from two 20-hp recirculating blowers provide a combination airflow to the workload. The oven includes 4” thick insulated walls, a removable top-mounted heat chamber and aluminized steel interior and exterior. Oven controls include a 13,500-cfm powered forced exhauster and other safety equipment required to handle up to 2 gallons of flammable solvent at 370°F (188°C). Also onboard are a digital-programming temperature controller, SCR power controller and motorized dampers on the intake and exhaust for accelerated cooling and rapid purging. Read more!
