Illinois, US-based CAS, a supplier of specialty industrial heaters and vaporisers used in industrial gas, cryogas, and air separation applications, will offer CAST-X High Temperature Heaters in two standard sizes: CAST-X HT 500, which has power to 1500 Watts and a 1/4 inch fluid/gas flow-tube; CAST-X HT 2000, which accommodates higher-flow applications with power to 6 kW, and a 1/2 inch flow-tube.

CAS said in a statement, “Process gases such as nitrogen, argon, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide are well-suited for CAST-X High Temp: but flammable liquids and gases can also be safely heated, even at significant flowrates and pressures. CAST-X HT is an easily integrated ‘inline heater’ with industry standard flow-tube sizes, and compatibility with most worldwide voltages.”

All CAST-X Heaters have a unique ‘no contact design’, where the heated media never contacts the heating element. The heated media - either liquid or gas - flows through a spiral-wound stainless steel or Inconel flow-tube, which is isolated inside the heater body.

Jeffrey Awe, Global Marketing Director at CAS, “The CAST-X Heater design has always been favoured by engineers involved with gas regeneration, high-pressure vaporisation, and countering of the Joule-Thomson effect. Now, with CAST-X High Temp delivering temperatures to 600°C, the potential market penetration for the CAST-X Heater family is expanded significantly.”
