The project to develop a high efficiency immersion heater began a long time ago at Thermocoax with a very specific R&D project for high purity aluminium foundries.
We then adapted our technology to heating applications for the storage of heavy fuel with an innovative flange immersion heater design offering a longer lifetime than existing solutions.
FLANGE IMMERSION HEATERS FOR PETROCHEMICAL INDUSTRIES
- Low density <2W/cm²
- Easy movement of the fluid through the heater
- Strong mechanical resistance
- Easy maintenance, each heater can be replaced separately
- 100% energy efficient
- Material: Stainless Steel 316L
- Flange: DN100 and DN200 with or without screw plug
- Total length above the flange: 1m or 2m
- Total Power: from 5kW to 40kW
The challenge was to offer a high efficiency immersion heater for the aluminium industry, using Thermocoax mineral insulated cables and our expertise in applications for harsh environments.
Based on our experience, we offer solutions tailored to your needs and your environment with external sheaths in various materials including Sialon sheaths for aluminium baths.
Typical power available : up to 20kW
THERMOCOAX immersion heaters are used in aluminium industries and hydrocarbon refineries to maintain the temperature in the storage tanks and for pumping operations.
THERMOCOAX offers a specific range of Flange Immersion Heaters for petrochemical industries with an innovative design.
Our product range focuses on small tank petroleum-based heating applications requiring low density < 2W/cm² solutions with a total power up to 40kW.
THERMOCOAX Immersion Heaters are designed for direct immersion in liquids such as :
- Heavy fuel
- Preheating fuel
- Light diesel fuel
- Standard diesel fuel
- Machine oil
- Mineral oil
- Lubricating oil…
Also, for asphalt, tar and other heavy or highly viscous components.
To complete this range, our large offer of thermocouples allows us to be part of the main projects in petrochemical factories combining efficiency and safety:
- Multipoint sensors
- Hot point detectors
- Specific sensors for subsea applications
- Customised sensors
Thermocoax thermocouples are available with high-resistive sheath materials that can resist corrosive environments.
All temperature sensors can be operated inside pressure vessels.
THERMOCOAX thermocouples can be used in ATEX zones.
