Low Watt Density = Less Burned Product
Thermal’s bitumen heaters are designed with bitumen in mind. This may sound obvious, but we know how important it is to consider the product we’re heating when designing an element that is fit for purpose. Many of our competitors will provide ‘off the shelf’ solutions that are not suited to bitumen, resulting in damaged and burned product from over-heating.
This is where TEE’s low watt density, black heat bitumen heaters excel. The low watt density of the elements reduces the surface temperature, giving a more even heat and reducing the chance of your bitumen being burned while maintaining fluidity. And we don’t stop there, sure anyone can look at the surface watt density, but we take it one step further and look at the wire watt density within the elements as well. While the surface watt density might be within the acceptable limits, if the wire watt density inside the element is too high it can work like a fuse and burn out the heater anyway.
Each heater is designed with your application and power supply in mind while maintaining a safe and efficient low watt density to protect your product. For larger requirements we can supply heaters with more elements, offering you a stronger heater (for your large amount of bitumen) and still keeping that low surface temperature for protection.
