Watlow Australia , designers and manufacturers of electric heaters, controllers and temperature sensors, have introduced the CAST-X 3000 circulation heater – a heater that offers high flow volume at the required temperature through a single compact product.
Typical applications of the CAST-X 3000 circulation heater include steam generation and superheating for process applications and applications where cleanliness is a major concern. These include heating volatile materials in cases where contamination could be a problem such as deionised (DI) water and in food and beverage applications.
The CAST-X 3000 circulation heater is also available with optional explosion proof enclosure for use in hazardous environments.
This new edition to Watlow Australia’s CAST-X family of heaters consists of two helical coiled tubes and tubular elements cast into a robust aluminium body, which serves as the heat transfer media between the tubular element and the process tubes. The use of heavy wall 316L seamless process tubing assures high reliability and high pressure operation
The CAST-X 3000 circulation heater features a fluid path independent of the heater sheath preventing fluid contamination; integrated thermostat housing allows the heater to run dry and the dual tube construction allows water flow rates to 20 GPM when run in parallel. Its non-welded construction minimises potential leakage, allows high-pressure operation and is self-draining when mounted vertically.
