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.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
