Avoiding unnecessary downtime is critical and part of keeping operations running as efficiently as possible is having a good handle on the inventory required. From valves and gauges to sensors and filters, there is a multitude of different parts and pieces of equipment associated with an industrial environment.
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.

Do you know how to determine the amount of energy required to heat a substance to a specific temperature? If the answer is “no”, stick around. We’ve got a simple method to help you determine the energy required for almost any heating application!
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.
One of the best ways to decrease your operating expenses is to reduce your scrap. In this video we're going to talk about process heating and controls and specifically Watlow's new power controller called the Aspyre.
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.
This video tutorial shows you the steps on how to enable the Bluetooth feature on the Watlow EZ-Zone controller for use with the Watlow EZ-Link app.
This video tutorial shows you the steps on how to factory reset the Watlow EZ-Zone controller.
Watlow’s new ASPYRE power controller family is flexible and scalable, and available with a variety of options allowing one platform to be re-used across a wide range of applications, which can help save time and money. ASPYRE models available include sizes from 35 to 700 amps.

Ice dams can be frustrating. An ice dam forms when the roof over the attic gets warm enough to melt the bottom layer of snow. The snow melts into water and the water trickles down between the layers of snow until it reaches the eave of the roof. There, the water freezes, gradually growing into a mound of ice. These ice dams can damage both your roof and the inside of your home if the water finds an opening.
