When your business requires a top quality industrial heating solution, consider using a Chromalox heater. From medical equipment and petrochemicals to alternative fuels and transportation, Chromalox, Inc. supplies heating products to nearly every industry. Hi-Watt is proud to offer the high-caliber products Chromalox has been manufacturing for over a century.
Chromalox cartridge-style heaters are a mainstay of Hi-Watt’s industrial heating solutions. They are used across nearly every sector, from injection molding and chemical processing to defense and aerospace.
Immersion-style cartridge heaters are generally used for generating steam or heating liquids and gases in pressurized vessels and tanks. Designed in the shape of a rod, this efficient Chromalox heater is placed directly in contact with the target solution. The material or component to be heated determines the best type of immersion heater for the job:
- Flanged heaters resist corrosion and are commonly employed in pressurized applications.
- Screw-plug styles are threaded to fit snugly into the wall of a container to keep liquids, often oils, at constant temperatures.
- Over-the-side styles are popular for their versatility and portability.
Chromalox immersion heaters are best suited to heat water, solvents, oils, salts or gases and have a range of capacity reaching up to 2,000 kilowatts.
Compact and durable, these cartridge heaters are generally used for heating metal components. If your operation requires heating an injection mold or die, an insertion-style Chromalox heater would be a great choice. They are comprised of a high-heat steel sheath, lead wires and a heating element. The steel sheath heats the surrounding metal from within a drilled cylinder. Hi-Watt’s Insertion heaters are known for their longevity and are designed to be resistant to oxidation.
When moisture or freeze protection are needed for solid surfaces, strip heaters are the optimum choice. Chromalox strip heaters cover a wide array of shapes, sizes and wattages for both surface and convection heating applications.
Quartz Infrared Heaters
High-energy, quartz lamps and electromagnetic waves do the work in these efficient ambient heaters. They provide rapid, uniform heat to air cavities or entire rooms. Available with single or twin elements, this Chromalox heater can reach temperatures up to 1,600 degrees Fahrenheit within seconds.
Heat Trace Cables
When a pipe freezes, it can mean your whole operation comes to a halt. Hi-Watt carries various Chromalox heat-tracing options for use where freezing pipes may be a problem. These self-regulating heated cables are used to ensure that fluids flow at the proper temperature through valves, pipes, tanks and tubing.
Hi-Watt offers a range of Chromalox heat-tracing cable, terminations, controls and other parts and accessories. Complete packages can provide monitoring, temperature control and power management all in one system.
A Chromalox heater effectively applies heat to the target material, but temperature controllers are needed to reach a target or maintain a certain temperature range. When a product or process in your operation require a constant temperature, a Chromalox controller can offer you the regulation you need. Chromalox thermostats and multi-loop process controllers are efficient and cost-effective solutions to temperature control.
