Made for heating revolving rolls, platens, molds, jacketed tanks and autoclaves, the Hot Oil Systems are designed for consistent heating in petrochemical plants, pulp and paper plants, plastics manufacturing and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Their pre-engineered, proven design package has been field tested in continuous operation up to 650F. Even heat inside the tube bundle comes from low watt-density Incoloy 800 sheath heating elements, and the systems feature the unique "Buffer Tank" design. This design prevents degradation problems with hot oil (more than 150F) at the expansion tank, but without a nitrogen purge system. They can be run in a non-hazardous area by a remote, customized control panel.
Industrial workplaces are governed by OSHA rules, but this isn’t to say that rules are always followed. While injuries happen on production floors for a variety of reasons, of the top 10 OSHA rules that are most often ignored in industrial settings, two directly involve machine design: lockout/tagout procedures (LO/TO) and machine guarding.
