tflexHP high-temperature high-power heating system for tank containers
Our tflex & tflexHP systems are electric heating systems specially designed for very high temperature ranges. Their operating principle is similar to that of the gflex system series, with the difference that various components are designed to meet special regulations and higher temperatures. A thermal oil is used as the heat transfer medium. tflex & tflexHP are compatible with almost all tank containers on the market – even for retrofitting. Modular in design, the result of each system is an individual and also maintenance-friendly design with many expansion options.
The systems of the high-temperature series temper the tank contents indirectly via the outer wall of the container. For this purpose, the circulation pump conveys a heat transfer medium in a closed circuit through the half-pipes, which are normally used for steam heating. The heat transfer medium is a thermal oil based on alkylbenzene. The electric heater installed in our system is part of the closed circuit.
In heating mode, the electric heater integrated in the system heats the heating medium. The heating of the heat transfer fluid is carried out according to the principle of a continuous flow heater, whereby it is strictly separated in terms of material from the customer’s product. The power supply for the system is provided by an industry standard 380-440V CEE plug. Heating is fully automatic. The flow temperature at which the heat transfer medium flows into the container’s pipe circuit can be set with high precision. In this way, even very temperature-sensitive products are protected from quality losses due to too high contact temperatures.
tflexHP is the high-power system of the system series. In addition to the features of a high-temperature system, tflexHP reaches the flow temperature particularly quickly thanks to its higher output of 27.5 kW. The system series generally has better basic equipment than the gflex series. A microflex control with its extended control functions is part of the basic equipment of the system series as standard. The system can be further equipped with some additional options.
