Chromalox’s high pressure cast circulation heater

Chromalox has introduced their newest circulation heater product with the new CCX model line. The CCX is designed to handle high pressure applications up to 7500 psi. The heating elements are directly set in an aluminium casting, which allows efficient heat transfer. The process media are completely isolated from the elements, eliminating potential concerns for excessive, hot spots, sheath corrosion, or process leakage.

The CCX heater is part of the XtremeDutyTM platform for its ability to handle high pressures, while providing ASME and PED pressure certification. Additionally, the marine grade casting is suitable for salt-laden environment such as offshore platforms. Lastly, the unit has an explosion-proof terminal enclosure option, rated IECex and ATEX.

The CCX heater is targeted for users in the power generation, petrochemical and mid-stream oil & gas markets to heat seal gas for high pressure seals, along with similar usage in compressors, turbines, or other rotating equipment. This prevents any moisture from damaging the seals when operating at high pressures. It is also used for heating gases prior to pressure reduction valves to avoid freezing or condensation buildup.

The CCX model comes with power ratings from 3 to 30kW and in voltages up to 690V.
