(PROCESS EQUIPMENT HEATING)
Small footprint, digital, carbon zero, plug & play IP rated process equipment heaters for valves, flanges, pumps and other equipment.
Small is beautiful
The MicroLimpet is a thermostatically
controlled single channel heater that is designed to provide high heat flow to process equipment.
It is a superior alternative to trace-heating and jacketed water heated systems.
The AlphaLimpet incorporates a fixed temperature internal thermostat, built within the heater block, This built-in high performance system achieves all this without a control panel.
Unless it can be mounted onto a flat surface, a MicroLimpet must normally be used in combination with a profiled adapter block, which gives a direct heat flow path to the workpiece shape, hence being able to heat a myriad of equipment surfaces by the use of a correctly-profiled metal adapter block (usually aluminium).
The adapter block also serves as an effective heat storage device, thereby enhancing the mass of heat flow into the workpiece under varying cooling loads. We make a range of standard adaptor blocks that will fit most common items and radii but we can also produce custom-profiled blocks, as required.
The blocks are usually fitted to the workpiece with stainless steel adjustable straps and the MicroLimpet is fitted to the adapter block using cap-head machine screws.
