There are two main applications when it comes to tank heating- maintaining temperature or increasing temperature. Temperature maintenance, is typically accomplished via external means like heat trace or with insulating blankets wrapped around the tank.
Heat tape? Heat cable? Heat trace? What’s the difference?
In today’s video, I’ll be explaining what heat tape is and how it’s different from heat cable and heat trace products.
In this video, Nathan will be focusing on how to increase productivity, which is a key initiative for any company wanting to increase market share in today’s challenging economy. He will be focusing on the Watlow Aspyre power controller and its role in helping increase productivity.
Impedance heating systems act much like standard heating circuits, except the resistor is the pipe itself. This is accomplished when a small amount of AC voltage is applied across the terminals. The resulting impedance of the system generates heat on the pipe. The control panel for an impedance system provides power and control. However, the step down transformer is what provides the reduced voltage, 30VAC or less, to the pipe. This rating stays within OSHA and NEC limits.
The InSight Glow option uses a retro-reflective, photo-luminescent dial design that illuminates the entire front of the instrument dial for an extended amount of time when exposed to a light source for as little as 10 seconds. The dial appears bright white in darkness, fog, smoke, and fire. InSight Glow meets the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) standards for bright-white visibility in a power outage.

This video demonstrates how to replace a standard mechanical switch with the solid-state One Series from United Electric Controls.
In this video Rich Wilbur demonstrates how you can use tubing that you can measure, mark, layout, and bend. Check it out!
This video takes you step by step from deburring a piece of tubing, marking the tubing, making up the fitting, and pressurizing the fitting to show that it only takes one and a quarter turn to properly seal a fitting from leaks.
You were tireless in your support and it will not be forgotten!
