    Integrated Control Panels

    Heating systems are run through digital control panels. These panels act as the brains of the system, running and optimizing heating functions for stability and efficiency. They also provide safety, preventing overheating and/or chemical disintegrations. Integrated control panels align the panel with the individual systems, software, equipment, and accessories in your heating system. As a […]


    Types of Storage Tanks

    In the chemical and petrochemical industries, the production, manufacturing, and refining all rely on storage tanks. The right storage tank protects the product as well as the equipment, environment and personnel. Built to contain liquids, vapors, and gases, storage tanks are designed to contain spills and reduce the risks and damage of ruptures and leaks. […]


    Immersion Heaters and Mechanisms of Heat Transfer

    Immersion heaters are a popular application in the oil & gas, petrochemical and manufacturing industries. Their operational principle is simple and is based on the direct heating of a fluid body when the immersed heating element is operating while placed inside the fluid body.  The most common design involves a heating element directly submerged in […]
