FX - Liquid Heat Transfer Systems Engineered Product

The Caloritech™ FX Liquid Heat Transfer Systems are custom designed to provide high temperature process heat without the need for high pressure design common to saturated steam transfer systems. This enables the FX system to provide accurate process temperatures up to 375°C (707°F) in molds, platens, presses and jacketed vessels or pipes under practically negligible pressure conditions. Heat transfer fluid, such as hot oil, is circulated through electric circulation heaters (low density EXF) and the process in a closed loop. Systems are supplied as fully prewired and piped packaged assemblies with every detail tailored to the customer's specific application. Please contact your nearest Caloritech™ agent or distributor to obtain complete specifications and pricing for your custom designed FX system.
