Pittsburgh, PA- [December 20, 2008] - Chromalox, a leading manufacturer of electric heat and control products, announced that it has improved the heating capability and corrosion resistance of its horizontal electric vaporizers to create "superheater" technology to support production of materials for altenative energy systems. The enhancements allow the production process to vaporize materials rather than heating them in a furnace.
"We are always working with our customers to engineer our solutions to ensure they meet their specific requirements," said Mark Wheeler, manager, packaged systems for Chromalox. "This application demanded more from a Chromalox vaporizer than any application we'd ever encountered and proved to be an opportunity to demonstrate the functionality of our basic vaporizer technology in an extreme application."
Chromalox horizontal electric vaporizers are designed to transfer heat at high temperatures and low pressures and are pre-engineered, pre-wired, and pre-piped for flexible, dependable and efficient operation. The recent enhancements to the technology open up new applications for these vaporizers, including hydrocarbon vaporizing.
