Kanthal launches 60 kW flow heater to meet higher power demands

“We have the best available technology in the field of electric air heaters, but we can see that there is demand, especially from heavier industries and processes, for a heater with even higher power,” explains Markus Mann, Technology & Innovation Manager, Kanthal. “By adding a new 60 kW heater to our portfolio, we can now provide more power while minimising the number of devices, which will provide simpler control and lower the overall cost of ownership.”
With a unique design and robust internal temperature control, the 60 kW Kanthal flow heater can deliver gas outlet temperatures of up to 1,100 °C (2,012 °F), compared to 800 °C (1,470 °F) with conventional air heaters, as well as a temperature accuracy within ±1 °C. When it comes to drying and pre-heating processes, the flow heater can deliver the same performance as gas burners but with increased heat efficiency. It can also reduce the CO2 footprint and eliminate combustion-related pollutants such as NOx and SOx from processes or facilities.
The full range is available with 3.5 kW, 11 kW, 20 kW, 30 kW, 40 kW and now 60 kW. In addition, Kanthal continues to offer customised models for individual processes and demands.
