Cast - X Aluminum Cast Circulation Heaters
CAS’s family of heaters are ideal solutions for demanding applications. These heaters consist of a helical coiled tube and tubular element cast into an aluminum body. The aluminum body serves as the heat transfer media between the tubular element and the coiled fluid or gas transfer tube. The unique construction of the heater allows it to be used where thermally sensitive materials such as paints and resins or flammable materials such as fuels and solvents are being heated.

The aluminum mass acts as a “thermal flywheel” and ensures accurate temperature control of the fluid. Many of our circulation heaters are available with optional explosion-proof enclosures for use in flammable environments. The CAST-X line of circulation heaters are well suited to applications where fluid cleanliness is critical because the material being heated never comes in contact with the heating elements. This is a performance requirement in thefood service equipment, semiconductor and analytical industries. These heaters also come with a heavy wall seamless stainless steel passageway that assures performance in high-pressure applications where viscous or mildly corrosive materials need to be heated.

Cast-In Aluminum and Bronze Platen Die Heaters for Plastics Processing Equipment
Tempco Cast-In Platen Heaters are widely accepted as the industry standard for heating critical, temperature-sensitive plastics processing downstream equipment.

Typically, plastic die applications are highly temperature sensitive and require extreme heater uniformity and reliability. Tempco Cast-In Aluminum Platen Heaters are a logical choice to satisfy these critical application parameters, as the aluminum alloy has excellent thermal conductivity and a highly reliable, computer designed heating element which provides good contamination resistance. Optional cooling tubes can be cast-in to more precisely regulate the temperature of your process. The result is a highly efficient, uniform heater which, if used properly, can be expected to provide years of trouble-free service.

Cast-In Platen Heaters are generally manufactured in aluminum but can also be made in bronze or brass alloys to meet higher temperature processing requirements. For high volume requirements, the permanent mold process can be used to achieve the most effective economies of scale as well as yielding the best cosmetic appeal. To service customers with lesser volume orders, Tempco’s high quality no-bake sand mold process will be used, which assures excellent part quality and employs economical tooling.

Standard Cast-In Platen Heaters
Design Features and Options

  • Computer designed, precisely formed tubular heating element, optimizing the heat transfer pattern
  • A variety of termination options including terminal enclosure housings
  • Optional 1/4", 3/8", or 1/2" cooling tubes cast into the platen for liquid cool function
  • A variety of shapes and sizes made to your specifications
  • Through-holes, tapped holes or cutouts to facilitate mounting or obstructions
  • Precision machining of one or all surfaces of casting—specify your individual requirements.
