A Colorado natural gas driller performs hydraulic fracture drilling, using water and steam mixtures as they drill deep into the earth to extract natural gas. As the “frac” water is pulled back out of the wells for treatment, it travels through a system that includes six 14’ diameter, 20’ tall tanks that separate chemicals and other foulants through an agitation pr...

An oil and gas production and exploration company’s test chamber, used to evaluate downhole drilling components, needed heaters that could withstand pressures up to 35,000 pounds per square inch and temperatures up to 500° F. The company was using 52 sets of band heaters that aligned with temperature requirements, but were breaking under the pressures in the chamber. The screw... (read more)
Chromalox®, a leading manufacturer of electric heat and control introduces a new line of DIN temperature and process controllers. The new line is comprised of three main platforms: 40 Series temperature and process controllers; 50 Series limit controllers; 80 Series advanced programmable controllers with data logging. Each type of temperature controller is designed to be easy-to-use... (read more)
Convection heat is the transfer of heat from the heater to surrounding air by the natural circulation of air through the heater. In free or natural convection, the air motion is a result of gravitational forces where the heated air is lighter than the cooler air. The heated air rises from the top of the heater and is replaced by cooler air which enters from the bottom. This air current d... (read more)

Radiant heating consists of "radiant energy" being emitted from a heat source. Radiant heating heats a building through radiant heat, rather than other conventional methods including convection heating. The heat energy is emitted from a warm element (floor, wall, overhead panel) and warms people and other objects in rooms rather than directly heating the air.
The internal air temp... (read more)
Light and Medium Weight Oil Heaters are ideal for temperature maintenance and for improving flow characteristics of oils. Fuel and gas heaters are also used for Heat Transfer Oils. Heavy or Fuel Oil Heaters will reduce the viscosity, thereby improving flow and process efficiency. Preheating fuel oils provides better automization at the burners and allows the use of lower grade fuel oils. (read more)
