Equipment

The Rapid Heat 35 is designed to replace open-flame or resistance heating.

  • Outperforms propane or radiant heating in efficiency, ease of use and heating uniformity

  • Simple interface can be learned in a matter of minutes and provides operator tutoring

  • Can be used as an air-cooled or liquid-cooled system

  • Easily connected to a range of heating elements

  • Can be used with or without a temperature recorder

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

Using our Rapid Heat 35 Induction Heating System

The Rapid Heat 35 System has a choice of four programmes Pre-Heat, Bake-Out, P.W.H.T. and Custom. In the programme you can set the target temperature, soak time/temperature, cool down temperature/rate deg/hr, ramp rate deg/hr, etc. The Rapid 35 controller will then monitor the attached thermocouples to ensure that the heating and cooling rates are not violated during the procedure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Heat Elements

 

Our equipment works using various different types of Heating Blankets (air-cooled), Heating Cables (liquid-cooled), Coils and Clamps.

 

Air-Cooled System

Air-Cooled blankets are used for pre-heat only and can provide uniform heating up to 204°C (400°F).

Our blankets come in sizes to fit pipes or plates from 8.625" diameter (40" long) to 56" diameter (185" long). The blankets are reusable and are easily installed in a matter of seconds. They are made from durable, high-temperature materials to withstand the tough conditions in both industrial and construction applications.

 

 

Liquid-Cooled System

Liquid-cooled heating cables are can provide uniform heating up to 788°C (1450°F). They are ideal for both pre-heat and PWHT needs including Stress Relieving, Hydrogen Bake-Out, Shrink Fitting and many other applications.

Our liquid cooled heating cables come in sizes 30ft, 50ft, 80ft and 140ft. The silicone cable encloses a special copper conductor specifically designed for carrying high-frequency current to maximise efficiency. The cable also carries the coolant, which cools the conducting wire. The cable is reinforced for strength and durability they are reusable and easily installed in a matter of seconds.

  

 

Preheat Cable Covers

We provide preheat cable covers that must be used to protect the heating cable from slag and molten metal created during welding. They are easy to install and can withstand temperatures of up to 160°C.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The digital recorder is commonly used in stress relieving and critical preheat applications however can be used in any process.

 

The recorder stores temperature data based on time.

18 Point Paperless Graphic Recorder

The Rapid Recorder offers unrivalled input accuracy with a 125ms total sample rate for 18 channels. The input channels are configurable to suite the process requirements.

It has a touch screen display for simple programming and use. The colour display enables operators to clearly monitor the heating process in outdoor environment (direct sunlight).

They all have onboard Flash data storage capability, Ethernet communication and Compact Flash. Data is stored in tamper resistance binary format that can be used for secure, long term records of the process.

Rapid Heat Custom Made Coils

Our new range of Custom Built Coils can reduce the set up time on pipe applications.

Used in conjunction with our Rapid Heat Air Cooled Heating Unit they are simple and clean to use therefore they can reduce man hours and costs.

The coils are ideal for repetitive pre-heat applications.

They have a quick time to temperature span and a full even circumference ensuring consistent results every time.

The type of coil you use is dependent on your application. Our engineers will discuss your specification and requirements and advise on the best coil for the job.

 

Features

Coils are built in-house to your specification and can be built to fit any size of pipe.

They can be fixed or clamp type opening coils, which can be fastened from either the inside or outside.
