ThermalEx and ThermaLoad – Heating for Mining & Energy

ThermalEx and ThermaLoad heaters and load banks are already in use across a number of mining and energy sites both in Australia and overseas. From underground workplaces to gas processing facilities, remote sites and offshore rigs, including Olympic Dam, the Dampier Bunbury Pipeline, Gorgon and Gladstone LNG.

Thermal Electric designs and manufactures all of its products in-house to provide the most efficient solution that is fit-for-task, eliminating a lot of issues experienced with off the shelf generic designs.

ThermalEx Hazardous Area Heaters

Our ThermalEx range is certified to both IECEx and ATEX standards for hazardous areas, ensuring the highest safety and quality standards, giving you piece of mind and insurance against ignition dangers while operating in hazardous areas.

Electric heating is vastly superior to gas powered heating when accurate temperatures are required. The power consistency and quality of our electric heaters provides cost-efficient and optimised heat for your application, while allowing for ease of installation and servicing.

The ThermalEx certified range is constantly expanding and includes a variety of products, check out our latest certification and products, including complete control panels, vessels, heater bundles and more.

ThermaLoad Resistive Load Banks

Our ThermaLoad range of resistive load banks and braking resistors are used across a wide range of industries for generator load testing, battery testing, dummy loads to ensure generators are running at optimal capacity and more.

As with all of our products, ThermaLoad load banks are designed and manufactured fit-for-task and optimised for your specific application, offering a host of extras like touch screen controllers, trailer or container mounting, auto or manual control, remote operation, USB data logging and more.

With a variety of lifting and handling points that can be added and sizes ranging from small box like units to large 1MW units, we have a ThermaLoad resistive load bank to suit your needs.

ThermalEx Ovens, Drysafes, and Hot Boxes: Catalysts in Mining

Whether you are a rookie or an established company looking for the perfect heating element for your application, we have the solution for you. Thermal has the right product for your specific needs.

Mining uses heat in a lot of different ways. Australia ranks first in the Top 10 mining countries worldwide based on market value according to the Financial Times Global 500 list. It ranks second and third, respectively, in the top gold and uranium-producing nations. The United States Geographical Survey pegs Australia’s 2013 gold production at 255 MT, while 11 percent of the world’s uranium mines, a total production level of 6,350 tons, was also a by-product of the various operations.

The ThermalEx range of IECEx and ATEX certified hazardous area heaters are currently available with Ex ‘d’ certification for Zone 1, Group I and IIb + H2 with IP66 certified waterproof terminal boxes.

Servicing and installation are made easier due to special sealing customisation to prevent moisture ingress and can be replaced individually and easily on site by using double-bite compression fittings.

Our ThermalEx range of heaters is constantly expanding. If you require a heater with specifications outside this range, please contact us to find out what we can do for you.

Drum Ovens and Rooms

We design and manufacture heating ovens/rooms to meet your exact specifications. Thermal ovens/rooms ensure efficiency and provide maximum insulation. An electronic temperature control, programmable timer, and a fan-forced recirculated heated air system guarantees maximum performance. Heating several drums at the same time is possible through thermostatic heating between 30℃ – 110℃, 24 hours a day.

Commercial Drying

Mine workers risk their lives by exposing themselves to molten metal splash and extreme weather. Firefighters are enveloped both in water and flames, while those in other emergency services spend their lives getting from one place to another, exposed to harmful environments such as storms and floods. Much work has been done to maximise the longevity of their protective clothing in order to withstand such conditions. In some cases, however, their durability is neglected.

Thermal’s Drysafe Industrial Drying Cabinet guarantees safety in drying any type of heavy duty clothing such as fireman’s coats, forklift duffel coats to skiers parkas. The 240V 2400W cabinet comes with a 1m long lead and 3 pin plug. It is 2000mm high x 1000mm wide x 600mm deep fitted with two front doors. Clothes are hung and suspended above an electric heating element.

The electric Drysafe Industrial Drying Cabinet proves more efficient and cost effective than gas-powered dryers. With the doors closed, air is drawn through the base of the drier, over the heater element and through the roof mounted exhaust fan. An optional boot rack is also available.

Hot boxes

Electric axial and centrifugal Hot Boxes are also available for comfort heating, ventilation and drying in a variety of commercial/industrial situations as well as process heating applications.

Hot box – Axial

The Axial Hot Box is particularly suitable for use in incubator rooms, drying applications, shops, canteens, change rooms, greenhouses, nurseries, computer rooms and general purpose heating applications.

Hot box – Centrifugal

The Centrifugal Hot Box incorporates a single speed fan which provides continuous airflow at relatively low noise levels, enabling these heaters to be used for comfort heating and ventilation in a variety of commercial/industrial situations as well as process heating applications.

Thermal now also offer the 21kW Centrifugal Hot Box for hire, equipped with a powerful 165W electric motor delivering 450L of air per second. Get more information.

Robust construction and high quality finish give Thermal the leading edge in custom heating solutions.
