CAS Industrial HeaterCast Aluminum Solutions (CAS) – a supplier of industrial heating devices for specialized chemical and water processing applications including paint ingredients, solvents, and other key chemicals, recently launched its new CAST-X High Temperature Heater line.

CAST-X High Temp Heaters feature operating temps to 1110 deg. F (600 deg. C). Very few industrial heaters feature operating temperatures in this range, CAS says, adding the line can heat flammable liquids and gases, another rare feature.

CAST-X High Temp can safely heat solvents, IPA (isopropyl alcohol), disinfecting agents, acetone, pentane, ammonia, and other low-flashpoint liquids. Process gases such as nitrogen, argon, CO and CO2 are also well-suited for these heaters, even if they’re under high-pressure or in a cryogenic state. DI Water is also commonly heated using CAST-X Heaters, and if needed, steam can be generated.

CAST-X High Temp Heaters are an easily-integrated inline heater with common flow-tube sizes, and compatibility with most worldwide voltages. They’re available in two sizes.

A no contact design means the heated media never contacts the heating elements. Heated media (liquid or gas) flows through a stainless steel or Inconel flow-tube, cast in the heater body, into which high-performance heat elements are also integrated.

Many of today’s advanced chemical reactions and catalytic transformation processes require higher than normal temperatures, and the new line is designed to fit those thermal requirements, CAS says.

“The CAST-X Heater has always been favored by chemists requiring high-purity heating, or heating of flammable media,” says Jeffrey Awe, Global Marketing Director at CAS. “With CAST-X HT offering temperatures to 600 deg.C, the potential market for this heater family is expanded significantly.”

Jerry Carlson, Divisional Vice President adds, “The CAST-X High Temp line occupies a unique position in the chemical heating marketplace. It combines the safety and purity of an isolated fluid path, with the high operating temps demanded by today’s advanced applications.”

CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart.
