Heatec HC & HCS Heaters

Overview

Heatec HC & HCS heaters are direct fired heaters designed around a helical coil. Our coil meets ASME code. These heaters were originally designed to be used at asphalt plants for mixing road grade asphalt, but because of their versatility they can be found in a number of different facilities for a variety of applications. Their popularity comes from their simplicity, efficiency, low maintenance and relatively low cost. Heat transfer mediums used can be thermal fluid (hot oil), glycol mixtures, or gases. They are also used as process heaters, directly heating the process fluid or gas.

MODELS AND OUTPUTS

Nine standard models are available. Rated thermal outputs range from 0.7 to 4 million Btu per hour. All can be customized to meet your specific needs.

TWO BASIC CONFIGURATIONS

Heatec helical coil heaters are available in two basic configurations: HC and HCS. The HC configuration has a manifold that enables the heater to operate with multiple thermal fluid circuits.
