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.”

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
