4 Advantages of Skid Systems in Industrial Heating Processes

    Many industrial heating processes involve maintaining a consistent temperature in a vessel to protect the integrity of the product. If temperatures drop too low they can crystallize, separate, or even freeze. In larger tanks and vessels, a local heater cannot offer cannot provide adequate heat density and even temperature spread. Skid systems are an effective […]


    Fire Risks & Prevention Tips in Thermal Fluid Heating

    Despite all the safety precautions and guidelines, fires still happen in thermal fluid heating processes. Any process where fuel, air, and an ignition source meet, has a potential fire risk. Yet, safe thermal fluid heating is possible in any industry. Choosing the right equipment, installation, and maintenance can significantly reduce the risks of fires. Forward-thinking […]


    Electric Boiler Heaters For Clean Steam & Pure Steam

    Steam is one of the best heat carriers in process industries. It’s used for everything from space heating, to sterilization, to medicine. However, not all steam is created equal. Low-grade steam carries more contaminants, meaning this heating process is a poor choice for processes in the food and beverage or pharmaceutical industries. Purer steam presents […]


    Flange Heaters for Waste Oil Applications

    Less waste = more revenue. Waste is a major industrial expense, it results in getting less use out of high-cost products as well as increasing disposal costs. Wasteful processes drive up the costs of operation, reducing your bottom line. Oil, for instance, affects most major industries. From automobile engines to industrial lubricating oils, there is […]


    Low-Density Heaters For Bitumen Processing

    The density of a heater refers to the wattage per square inch (W/in2). The lower the density, the lower the wattage per in2. Heavy oils require a lower watt density for proper heating. Bitumen processing is especially reliant on low-density heaters. Bitumen is classified as an “extra-heavy oil” with an API gravity below 10°.  A […]
