Power Generation

Condensation is a concern for Power Generation companies, specifically waste-to-energy and coal-burning, that use hopper systems to capture fly-ash during the burn process. The hoppers must be heated to prevent condensation, which disrupts the process. BriskHeat offers a full line of both metal-clad and silicone rubber heaters which will both solve the condensation issue and meet all regulatory requirements. Additionally, there are often freeze protection issues which vary by facility, requiring self-regulating heating cable or silicone rubber heating blankets.

Applications


Fly Ash Hopper Heating for Power Generation

Power plants that use waste-to-energy and coal-burning to generate electricity create a by-product called “fly ash”.  Fly ash is a collection of fine particles that are produced from the combustion process.

Gas Line Heating for Solar Cell Production

Photovoltaic solar cells are thin silicon disks that convert sunlight into electricity. These disks act as energy sources for a wide variety of uses including: solar power plants, satellites, telecommunications, rooftop panels for home and office, lighting, pumping, calculators and other small devices, and even for villages in developing countries.

Freeze Protection for Control Panels

Electronic components inside control panels and monitoring devices need protected from cold temperatures. Control panels are often located outdoors and if exposed to sub freezing temperatures, components could fail to operate properly and potentially become permanently damaged.

IBC / TOTE Warming

Users of Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC) often need to raise the temperature to reduce viscosity or protect the contents from the cold. Maintaining an elevated temperature ensures materials remain ready for production and easy to dispense.

Roof & Gutter Ice Dam Prevention

During cold winter months ice dams form on the edge of rooftops and cause significant roof damage along with safety hazards from falling ice.

Emergency De-icing and Freeze Protection

The cold weather can wreak havoc on exposed valves, pumps, pipes, bearings, filter housing, and other industrial objects. When these parts freeze, they typically become unusable, and in extreme conditions damaged.

Preheating and Welding Steel

When TIG welding thick steel materials, cracking and weld failures can occur due to the extreme thermal stresses imposed by rapid cooling at the weld point. Preheating prior to welding is done to slow the cooling process and reduce the potential for weld failure.
