The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
Heatec Thermecon™ Marine Heaters are thermal fluid heaters for
heating cargo on barges and other
workboats. Typical applications include
heating asphalt, heavy fuel, sulphur or
The heaters operate at high thermal efficiency. They attain
87 percent efficiency without need for an optional heat exchanger. The
name Thermecon™ emphasizes the
improved fuel economy you can expect
from these heaters.
These heaters are designed for optimum performance and long life. For
new barges, we can configure the heaters to fit the space and connections
that you normally use. If the heater
replaces an old heater we can configure
it to fit in its place without modification.
Our helical coils have large heat transfer surface areas, which provide much
lower heat flux rates than coils found in
other heaters. Coil diameter and length
are sized to virtually eliminate flame
impingement and provide optimum flame pattern. Pipe diameter for the
coil is sized for an ideal fluid velocity of
6 to 13 feet per second.
The heaters use centrifugal pumps to circulate the thermal fluid. These
pumps have mechanical seals. They
are air cooled, eliminating the need for
A thermal mixing process is required to turn aggregates and liquid AC into an asphalt pavement mix for road construction. This makes an asphalt mixing plant necessary for road construction. The complete line of Astec asphalt mixing plants, and its range of capacities and features, gives you the choices and flexibility to create your optimum solution.
