Heating is an important part of the process in every industry. Whether it is for blending two liquids or melding two substances or changing a substance from solid to liquid state, the need for heat can never be denied in the manufacturing industry.
Heating may be a part and parcel of everyday life, from cooking food to booking water, but when it comes to manufacturing units, large scale industrial heaters are required. And like with any other equipment, every industry needs different types of heaters for the best results.
Komax Systems Inc is the world leader in producing static mixers, heaters, and desuperheaters. Since 1973, Komax has set a global standard in mixing and heating technology.
Despite having been founded over four decades ago, Komax has kept up with innovation, and produced some modern mixers and heaters. For different industries, Komax manufactures various types of heaters. Although Komax is based in the US, their products are recognized the world over.
The four main types of industrial heaters made by Komax are:
Flanged heaters: This type of heaters is commonly used in water treatment, chemical, and petroleum industries.
Flanged heaters normally come with an ANSI rated flange, along with other hairpin or bugle tubular elements protruding from the front of the flange. This is a type of electric immersion heater that applies direct heat to the liquid medium.
Circulation heaters: Also called in line heaters, circulation heaters also use the flanged immersion mechanism. This type of heaters includes a pump that makes the liquid flow through a closed reheated pipe circuit. When the liquid enters the pipe it gets heated and then exists through the nozzle. Different materials require different wattages.
Over-the-side heaters: For economic uses, these heaters are very popular. Over the side heaters have a water-resistant body, and also come in various shapes and sizes to fit the tank. Whether you have a standard or a non standard tank, Komax heaters can be custom designed to fit any container.
The flexibility and versatility of these heaters allows them to be used in different containers, no matter what the size. Because of this, over the side heaters are an economical choice for those who want to save money on a heater.
Screw plug heaters: This type of immersion industrial heaters is used for small scale applications. They are popular for their versatility and ease of installation. Screw plug heaters are used in the chemical industry, food and beverage industry, and HVAC systems.
