Electric Vaporizers And Heaters
Electricity is a convenient source of heat.
Electrically heated vaporizers generally require only a single power connection and process pipe connections prior to operation. An electric heating coil can be in direct contact with the fluid to be vaporized or transfer heat indirectly though another medium. Electric vaporizers are used to vaporize ammonia, chlorine, LNG, ethelene, nitrogen, oxygen, argon, CO2 and other liquefied gases and cryogens.
Thermacast Electric Vaporizers provide an economic and compact solution to vaporization. The cryogen flows through a stainless steel tube coil that has been cast into an aluminum block. Holes are precision drilled in the block and cartridge heaters are inserted. The cryogen is vaporized and superheated to a controlled set point. Full power distribution and temperature control is provided as part of the standard package. Standard units are available from 0.5 Kw to 250 Kw.
Thermax Electric Water Bath Vaporizers offer an extremely reliable and high flow vaporizer option. A stainless steel tube bundle is submerged in a bath of hot water. The water is maintained to a set point by immersion heaters. The cryogen is vaporized and superheated through the tube bundle that is fit with proprietary vortex generators. The bath provides ballast for vaporization even during power outages. Full power distribution and water bath temperature control is provided as part of the standard package. Standard units are available from 40 Kw to 2000 Kw.
Thermax Side Arm Vaporizers are generally used for maintaining tank pressure. With the advent of vacuum jacketed tanks, tank pressure cannot be maintained without an outside source of heat as provided by the sidearm vaporizer. As cryogen flows through the side arm by natural thermosyphon forces, the liquid is vaporized by direct contact with an immersion heater or indirectly through contact with an inner vessel filled with water/glycol. The heaters on the side arm are controlled with a pressure switch that is provided as part of the standard package. Standard units are available from 3 Kw to 150 Kw.
