Air Cleaning/Heating

Most commonly used for comfort heating, Air Duct Heaters are also used for heating process air or process gases/atmosphere. With a rectangular mounting flange, a standard duct heater is inserted through a cutout in a duct wall.

Desiccant Drying

For desiccant drying, Accutherm’s Circulation Heaters and Flanged Immersion Heaters are often used. Immersion heaters convert virtually all of its electrical energy into heat and are easy to control and less expensive to install compared to other heaters. Flanged Immersion Heaters have many uses some of which include heating:

  • Air and process gases in circulation systems
  • Water, oils, tars, detergents and other process liquids in tanks or vats
  • Water, oils, detergents and other process liquids in pressurized circulation systems

Paint and Powder Coat Drying

For applications such as baking and curing, softening, drying, and low temperature process ovens, radiant heaters are most commonly used. The infrared energy generated by a radiant heater has minimal energy loss when transmitted through uncontaminated air.
