Heat Transfer Systems

 

Our heat transfer systems are safe, versatile, user-friendly heating systems for process heating applications requiring closely controlled process temperatures. Pre-engineered and constructed with carefully matched components, these commercial and industrial heating systems provide easy installation and trouble-free operation in industrial heating applications. Our Heat Transfer Systems are used in process heating applications requiring closely controlled process temperatures. Systems are furnished complete with heaters, controls, pumps, valves and necessary plumbing.

Hot Oil Heaters – Heat Transfer Systems

Our hot oil and water systems are self-contained heating and cooling packages that provide direct or indirect process heating to temperatures of 750°F. These systems meet ASME codes and are pre-engineered to include temperature and power controls, expansion tanks, heat exchangers, pumps, valves, gauges, and all necessary piping. This eliminates component selection and assembly. Select from oil or water temperature control systems for circulation in a closed-loop process.Our Heat Transfer Systems are used in process heating applications requiring closely controlled process temperatures. Systems are furnished complete with heaters, controls, pumps, valves and necessary plumbing.

Heat Transfer Systems are used with:

  • Jacketed Vessels and Tanks – containing waxes, paraffin, exotic chemicals including those having exothermic reactions, hot melt adhesives, resins, varnishes, paints, dyestuffs, molasses, vegetable oils and many other chemical or petrochemical products.
  • Heated Rolls – for coating paper and paper products, spot carbonizing, vinyl bonding, bonding with hot melt adhesives, calendering and laminating.
  • Heat Exchangers – for corrosive and noncorrosive fluids.
  • Platens, Dies and Molds – for laminating wood and plastics, forming of carbon products, epoxy materials and Fiberglass, plastics extrusion, injection molding, molding rubber and plastic materials: vinyl bonding and bonding with hot melt adhesives.
  • Pipeline Tracing – of viscous materials such as paints, fuel oils, asphalt and many other chemical and petrochemical products for antifreeze protection and/or maintaining pumping temperatures.
  • Industrial Systems – such as snow melting, comfort heating and hot water supply and as standby equipment for industrial and commercial applications in case the supply of other fuels is curtailed.

Fluid Vaporizers Heat Transfer Systems

Our horizontal electric vaporizers are designed for use with Dowtherm, Therminol, and other organic fluids to transfer heat at high temperatures and low pressures. They are pre-engineered, pre-wired, and pre-piped packages designed for flexible, dependable, and efficient operation. All units are ASME-certified to 150 psi at 750°F with 300 lb construction throughout. Seal-welded element design eliminates leaks and improves serviceability on the heater. Units available with over-pressure, process, remote, or skid mounted controls. Optional NEMA weather- and explosion-resistant enclosures are also available.

Water Heat Transfer Systems

Our Water Heat Transfer Systems are used in process heating applications requiring closely controlled process temperatures. Systems are furnished complete with heaters, controls, pumps, valves, safety devices and necessary plumbing.

Expansion Tanks for Heat Transfer Systems

Our CWG Series Hot Water Heat Transfer Systems can be used in closed-loops with water or water-glycol mixtures to a maximum operating temperature of 250°F. Applications include heating only or heating and cooling of jacketed vessels, rolls, heat exchangers, platens, dies and molds requiring high and uniform temperature throughout the process.

Application

An expansion tank is an essential component to all heat transfer systems. Heat transfer fluids expand with an increase in temperature. Expansion tanks allow for and contain the increase in volume due to temperature. In addition, cold expansion tanks provide a “seal” on the system reducing oxidation of the fluid. They also add to the net positive suction head (NPSH) on the inlet to the pump.
