BCE Mini Clean Flow Heater

Mini Clean Flow Heater

A POWERFUL, COMPACT SOLUTION FOR HEATING MOVING LIQUIDS AND GASES

Applications

A very compact, fast responding electric heating element for liquids and gases for all clean, fuel cell, bio-med, laboratory, food, and pharmaceutical applications.

  • Parts cleaning
  • Critical fluid heating
  • Solvent replacement
  • Biomass extraction
  • Bio reclamation
  • Semiconductor processing equipment
  • Photoresist material

The MCF heaters can be used to heat media in-line with the process flow. The heater is cleaned with IPA and rinsed with DI water and then passivated. This process minimizes contamination of the media being heated. For liquids, the max outlet temperature is driven by the liquid media, for gases the max outlet can be 550°C. The internal element in most cases comes with a built-in thermocouple (K or J), which will monitor the heater and the media temperature. BCE prefers grounded junctions, meaning grounded to the sheath of the internal heater. By having this configuration, the heating element is in direct contact with the media, hence maximum efficiency.

The MCF-Stream was designed in such a way that the delta-T between the ni-chrome internal element and the sheath of the heater is at a minimum. By keeping the delta-T to a minimum the life of the element will be optimal for most applications.

MINI CLEAN FLOW HEATER

The Mini Clean Flow Heater operates in a liquid or gas stream providing very fast response times and accurate control capability.

The heating elements in the Mini Clean Flow Heater are isolated electrically from the process media, protecting them from contaminants and providing long life.

  • Designed for heating of clean gases or liquids
  • Gas flow passes over an enclosed heated body; not exposed to resistive elements (Nichrome)
  • All parts exposed to gas flow are constructed of 304 stainless (other material available)
  • High temperatures
  • Custom wattages, voltages, inlet and outlet fittings (NPT, SAE, BSP &VCR) are available.
  • Made in U.S.A.

WATTAGE REQUIRED CALCULATIONS

  • Determine the volume of air or gas (SCFM) you will be heating.
  • Determine temperature rise in degrees Fahrenheit (DeltaT in F)
  • Calculate wattage required as follows: kW = (SCFM x Delta T) / 3000) x 1.2
  • Take into consideration the physical size requirements of your application and determine  the air heater size constraints for your application.
  • High watt densities shown in the specifications charts are subject to factory approval due to resistance wire limitations.

TOLERANCES

Wattage tolerances are held to +5, -10% or better at the voltage specified.
