Optional Equipment offered by Infinity
Infinity provides to many different Customer Levels, from the Equipment Manufacturer who needs little to no supporting optional equipment, to the end user who requires fully functional turnkey systems. Select the product and components you would require for your application with this list of added components. (These components are added as required by the customer as many of Infinity Customers manufacture their own equipment and do not require redundant devices.)
Technical Considerations for designing an INFINITY Inline Heater
What is the maximum change in temperature required for your application, i.e. 60° to 160° is a temperature rise of 100, this is the number which should be used as the delta T variable for calculating power requirements. (ΔT)
What are the process connections you will require? Infinity does not charge more for changing from standard designs to specialized designs, like sanitary, compression, VCR or Flare etc. Let us know what would work perfectly for your application and we will make it happen.
Most Infinity Heaters have a useful temperature to @1000°F, we can design higher temp products with specialized designs and considerations, please contact sales for more information on higher temp products.
Infinity’s standard product line is constructed of all Stainless Steel, mainly 316L heater elements and 304L housing bodies. However, Teflon™/PTFE/PFA, Quarts, Incoloy and Titanium are all standard options for Infinity Inline heaters.
All Infinity heaters can come stand alone or with control loops. Most of our control loops are isolated enclosures, so you can mount the heater conveniently in the process and the control enclosure in a location convenient for the operator. All Infinity control enclosures come standard with solid state power controls and PID temp controls with optional communications, RS485, RS232, retran4-20ma, 0-10v etc.
Infinity can design most of its heaters to operate within classified areas, for Class 1 Div 1-2, or ATEX etc. Let us know the classification and we can design a component to meet your requirements.
All of the Infinity heaters come with a control Thermocouple (type K standard) unless otherwise noted. These thermocouples monitor the temperature of the fluid or media within the heater housing, not the temperature of the element. Other sensors for fail safe control are available. Thermal switches mounted on the exterior housing can be specified or insertion style probes for media control/protection.
