Industrial Applications for Your Immersion Heater

kc-series-immersion-heaterImmersion heaters, also known as bayonet heaters, are electrically powered direct contact heating devices used to heat material inside a container. They are versatile, able to be used in a variety of applications and processes where the temperature of oils, solutions, heat transfer fluids, and other liquids must be regulated. Electric immersion heaters often replace other types of furnaces like fuel-based fluid heaters, reactors, infrared, microwave, and resistance heaters. Industrial immersion heaters play an important role in many sectors, from food and agriculture to chemical applications and more.

Top 4 Benefits of EC Fans

EC Fan

An electronically commutated (EC) fan design delivers the combined benefits of AC and DC Fans. The EC fan's power comes from a brushless DC motor, but it offers the control that AC induction fans have over the fan rotor through a printed circuit board. The electronically commutated fan's DC motor has the advantage of a variable speed control built-in.

Choosing the Right IMC Solution to Protect Fan and Blower Systems

Intelligent Motion Control (IMC) solutions modify the start-up and continuous power in brushless DC fans and blowers. These systems control every element of the equipment's functionality with multi-featured, full-wave, in-board circuit designs to ensure each piece of equipment is protected from abnormal or harmful voltage conditions. Not only can the IMC solution control how much power is run through the fan and blower systems on start-up, but they can also provide early warnings about fan malfunctions and energy usage.

How Intelligent Motion Controls Use Automated Processes to Make HVAC Processes Greener and More Efficient

Brushless DC fans and blowers need optimal motion control. When complex or demanding applications need precise levels of output, intelligent motion control systems can keep parts safe while still ensuring high-quality production cycles. These intelligent motion controls (IMCs) have in-board circuits that use programmable, information-gathering features to develop air movement “intelligence” and learn how the parts need to operate in different environments.
