IBC/TOTE Tank Immersion Heaters - BriskHeat

IBC/TOTE Tank Immersion Heaters

IBC/TOTE immersion Heater - BriskHeat
Description

Immersion heaters are submersible heaters that use direct heat transfer to allow liquid mediums to quickly reach desired temperatures. They are commonly used with all types of tanks and processing equipment and are a cost effective, rapid heating method in almost any industrial or manufacturing environment.

Immersion heaters are submersible heaters that use direct heat transfer to allow liquid mediums to quickly reach desired temperatures. They are commonly used with all types of tanks and processing equipment and are a cost effective, rapid heating method in almost any industrial or manufacturing environment.

Typically, they consist of hairpin tubular metallic heating elements, commonly copper, steel, or Incoloy. Watt densities can be as high as 80 watts/in² (12 watts/cm²), with temperatures reaching 1,500°F (800°C). Their rapid thermal response can be regulated by a wide range of controllers to assure project objectives are met, and they can also be used with high-limit temperature probes to help protect liquids and processes.

Common immersion heater market segments include food and beverage, laboratory, cosmetics, consumer products, petrochemical/chemical, oil & gas, and general manufacturing.

Application

Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) users often need to raise the product temperatures to reduce viscosity or protect the contents from the cold. When they need to do this quickly the large volume of liquid, which could be in excess of 300 gallons (1136 liters), makes it challenging. Additionally, if the tank is in an extremely cold environment, the additional frigidity causes more difficulties. Raising or maintaining the temperature to the desired level ensures materials are ready for production and easy to dispense. Failure could result in the contents being ruined, production delays, or inability to dispense at all. This may increase production costs or damage to equip-ment. Replacing ruined materials, waiting for usable product, and damaged equipment could be very expensive and cause serious downtime.

Solution

The combination of BriskHeat’s TTI immersion heater and TOTEWI wraparound insulator is an effective IBC/tote tank heating system. Performance tests show that the immersion heater, when coupled with a BriskHeat wraparound insulator, heats twice as fast than the BriskHeat wrap-arounds and 3 times faster than the competition’s wrap-arounds. The universal-fit TTI immersion heater has 1,500 watts for maximum heat, includes a built-in controller, and a plug-and-play design. Additionally, the superalloy Incoloy 840 will not corrode and contaminate the product. The TOTEWI insulators fit any IBC with a circumference between 160 in (406 cm) and 192 in (482 cm), are easily installed using the built-in straps and buckles and are extremely durable. Both are suitable for use in wet environments.

What is the heated length?
The length of the heating rods is 34 in (86 cm) and the lower 18 in (46 cm) is the heated length.

Can the immersion heaters be used in wet areas?
Yes- their IP rating is 54, which means they can withstand splashing water.

What is the advantage of an immersion heater compared to a wrap-around heater?
Performance tests show that the immersion heater, when coupled with a BriskHeat wraparound insulator, heated twice as fast as standard wrap-around heaters.

What makes the wrap-around insulators suitable for use in wet areas?
The outer material is made of water-resistant antimicrobial polyester cloth, and the insulation

is a closed-cell (water repelling) elastomer. Will the immersion heater contaminate the product in the IBC/tote tanks?
The immersion heater is constructed from Incoloy 840, which is a superalloy designed for excellent corrosion resistance and superior high-temperature performance, so there is very little risk of contamination. Care must be taken to ensure there is no foreign matter on the heater.

How do the insulators fit all circumferences between 160 in (4064 mm) and 192 in (4877 mm)?
The D-rings and straps that secure the insulators to the tanks are adjustable, and the insulators will partially overlap on smaller tanks.

Why should insulators be used in conjunction with immersion heaters?
Performance tests show that heat-up times when both are used together is 4 times faster than with immersion heaters alone. Insulators retain heat resulting in lower cost of operation. Additionally, heater/insulator systems can reach warmer temperatures, especially in cold environments.
