Tank Heating System
Chromalox is devoted to providing you with the most cost-effective no matter how extreme, corrosive, or hazardous your process and heat and control solution for your application to keep your revenue environmental conditions are. We have a virtually unlimited selec generating processes on line. We excel at bringing our vast array tion of heaters, controls, and configurations to ensure you get the of solutions and products to your most difficult heating problems exact equipment needed for your process and application.
Heat trace is used to counteract the heat loss from process equipment and piping through its insulation. Chromalox offers a variety of heat trace systems for temperature maintenance and freeze protection of cooling water lines, steam or condensate return lines, compressed-air lines, fire protection lines, storage tanks, and valves. Chromalox heat trace systems can also be used to prevent solution precipitation and the increase of viscosity or solidification of product.
Self-Regulating Low-Temperature Heat Trace Cable
Intended for ordinary and hazardous environments, this heat trace cable prevents pipe freezing and maintains process temperatures. It is con structed of a semi-conductive heater matrix extruded between parallel buss wires and can adjust its output to independently respond to tem perature along its length.
Constant-Wattage Heat Trace Cable
This cable provides freeze protection and process temperature main tenance, but with rugged construction can tolerate exposure tempera tures to 392°F (200°C). Fluoropolymer jacketing is available for cor rosive environments.
Mineral-Insulated Heat Trace Cable
Mineral-insulated cable is suitable for the most demanding heat trace applications. Its INCOLOY* sheath resists damage, is fire-resistant, and provides a reliable electrical ground.
Heat Trace Controls and Accessories
As part of a complete solution for heat trace applications, Chromalox offers temperature control, monitoring, and power management in one package: the advanced Chromalox® IntelliTrace® control panel.
Other available accessories include all of the necessary components needed to complete your installation, such as splices, power connection boxes, and water-resistant end-seal terminations.
From sensors to multi-loop electronic controls to standard and custom con trol panels, Chromalox will design the ideal system for your plant application. We are the only process heating company offering a complete line of both process heaters and heat trace controls. This includes our basic, low- cost temperature controllers to our more sophisticated control systems like the Chromalox® IntelliPanel™ 3-phase SCR power control panel.
The advanced IntelliPanel design features unique color touchscreen technology that simplifies configuration settings and local monitoring, reducing setup time. It provides fingertip access to advanced diagnos tics, trending, and monitoring along with measurement instruments, alarm configurations, control algorithms, startup, and troubleshooting. Sensors range from bare thermocouples and RTDs to the most sophis ticated infrared non-contact sensors that directly, consistently, and accurately measure product temperature. Stock accessories include thermowells, wiring, indicating meters, timers, and recorders in addition to electromechanical contactors, thermostats, and thermoswitches.
