ZERO CARBON
INDUSTRIAL PROCESS HEATING FOR IBCs

 
The 'Dolfin' is ZECK's revolutionary high-performance
IBC heater replacing heated IBC jackets.
The Dolfin is an internal immersive heater with a difference.
It has a
THERMODYNAMIC core!

Why use
ZECK's DOLFIN FAST-BATCH
IBC heaters?

ZECK's Dolfin is the fastest IBC heater with sensitive product protection. It gets to the heart of the matter and heats directly into the product and right into the outlet valve to get that batching process underway in a fraction of the time of traditional heating systems. 

Because of this we can heat an IBC in a much faster time than any heating blanket or heated jacket can do, increasing efficiency and reducing batching time and down-time.

Our clever technology also 
protects sensitive products from heat damage.

High Perfomance

ZECK maximise performance by using solid-state digital control combined with a Thermodynamic Core at the heart of every unit. No other IBC Heater on the market utilises this technology.

The Dolfin puts heat directly where

it is needed.

The thermodynamic core pushes heat at over 13m/s along the entire length of the finned area.  This is not just conduction but utilises a high-speed transfer system as used in satellite and space-craft technology, bringing high performance to an industrial application.  With such a boost, heating rates can be up to 4 times that seen with traditional heating methods.

Sensitivity

Unlike normal immersion heaters, the ZECK Dolfin (named because of the fin array on the main heating section), spreads the heat over a surface area approaching 1 square metre in direct contact with the fluid. When heating products sensitive to thermal damage, it is important to note the material's Max Thermal Absorption Rate. The ZECK Dolfin keeps the power density to below 0.3 W/sq. cm in all cases  This is crucial for sensitive products, a few highlighted in the table below.

Uniformity

ZECK's Dolfin exhibits uniform heat along its length.

One of the key features of the thermodynamic core is that it is isothermal. What does this mean? It means that along the whole length, the temperature is evenly distributed. With a normal immersion heater, as the liquid lowers in the IBC and uncovers the heating element, the element gets extremely hot. This damages the product and eventually burns out the element.  It is like running a kettle with no water in. In some cases, it has been known for uncovered immersion heaters to explode, whereas there is no possibility of such a catastrophe in a ZECK Dolfin.

Solid State Reliability

We only use tried and trusted technology, Solid State power and heating devices that have a very long lifetime and are fully encapsulated.
We don't use trace heating as it just wouldn't be up to the job. We don't use fragile ceramic heaters and our power control is rated to take
150% of its maximum current, just to ensure the system has a very long lifetime.  We are British made and proud of it and believe our curing system is world-beating.  If you don't believe us, give it a go.

Food Safe

Each fin section is coated with an industrial grade food-safe Xylan with the following approvals:
 

  • FDA 175.300

  • 935/2004/EU

  • GB9685


Even the stickiest of products just falls off the surface and wipes clean with ease.

Docking Pod

The Dolfin can be purchased with an optional docking pod, which also facilitates cleaning.

You can fill the docking pod with water and use the power of the Dolfin to heat the water and sanitise the system.
