Circulation Heaters Designed For Clean Water/Oil Applications

pn10.jpgChromalox has introduced the versaTherm Seriesof clean water and oil circulation heaters, which are said to be more powerfuland flexible than previously available 2.5-in. screw plug heaters. Withfield-adjustable power levels between 0.5 and 40 kw, compact housings andmultiple mounting arrangements, these heaters can be installed in a range ofapplication and equipment configurations.

Twelve basic part numbers can be custom assembled for more than 120 different voltage, phase, wattage and circuit combinations. Chromalox says they can be delivered within three working days to satisfy both OEM and MRO applications.

Both the water and oil heaters are functional replacements for many older units from other manufacturers, and they can boost water or oil temperatures anywhere in a distribution system or application. Design versatility allows field adjustment of power ratings with simple connections to the six heater elements. In many cases, replacing an existing circulation heater with a versaTherm model is said to provide additional power capacity in the same amount of space, and allow for future kilowatt expansion by rewiring or exchanging the unit's heater elements.

Other features include:

  • Field-adjustable voltage ratings from 0.5 to 40 kw (for water units) and from 0.5 to 10 kw (for oil units)

  • Less than 6-in. od and or 30.75 in. lengths

  • Multiple inlet connections (drain port can be used as an alternate inlet for more versatility)

  • General-purpose terminal enclosure, rotatable 360 deg to match conduit connections

  • Incoloy sheath heating element welded to a 2.5-in. steel screw plug

  • Cast iron body for oil applications; galvanized vessel for water applications

  • Integral type 'J' thermocouple for process loop or over-temperature control of the fluid.

Prices start at $890.
