The application information is organized in 5 major categories:

Industry Applications

Food Processing companies need to prevent condensation, so food preparation areas are not contaminated. ProTherm’s silicone rubber heating blankets are used to create temperature equilibrium, thus eliminating condensation. In applications where ingredients must be heated to reduce viscosity so they can more easily move from one process to another, ProTherm products such as IBC/tote tank heaters, drum heaters, heating cable, and silicone rubber heating blankets can be used. Additionally, there are often freeze protection issues which vary by facility, requiring ProTherm’s self-regulating heating cable or silicone rubber heating blankets.
ProTherm’s products are used for a wide variety of applications in manufacturing. Processes that ProTherm’s products can benefit and make more efficient include: temperature process control, viscosity control, and condensation prevention. ProTherm’s wide variety of product offerings allows us to customize a solution to specific surface heating application needs. Additionally, there are freeze protection issues which vary by facility, and can benefit from using ProTherm’s self-regulating heating cable or silicone rubber heating blankets.
Petrochemical/Chemical Processing companies must often lower the viscosity of chemicals to enhance flow efficiency. Common products to solve viscosity issues include ProTherm’s heating cable, IBC/ tote tank heaters, drum heaters, and silicone rubber heating blankets. Constant-wattage heating cable is especially popular to keep chemicals at elevated temperatures, sometimes several hundred degrees, when transporting them through pipes. Constantwattage heating cable is easy-to-install, has circuit lengths up to 1,200ft (366m), is rated for hazardous areas, and is affordable. Additionally, there are often freeze protection issues which vary by facility, requiring ProTherm’s self-regulating heating cable or silicone rubber heating blankets.
Plastics/Injection Molding companies’ most common surface heating application requires melting plastic pellets into a liquid before injecting it into plasticforming molds. ProTherm’s cloth heating jackets are a popular choice for use in this application. They normally replace un-insulated mica band heaters as the cloth heaters are more energy efficient, safer to work with, and keep the work environment more comfortable. Additionally, for many of the Plastics/ Injection Molding facilities, freeze protection is an area of a concern. ProTherm’s self-regulating heating cable or silicone rubber heating blankets help to prevent fluids from freezing.
