Posted on by R Andrew Springer

Does Your Process Fluid Need to Remain at a Steady Temperature?

How do you ensure optimal heat transfer in your process? One way is to stop heat loss is to insulate or heat your hoses. When your process requires steady fluid temperatures. ACE offers two specialty options for heated hoses, and insulated hose, to keep process fluids at the needed temperature during transfer.

EHH – Electronically Heated Hose

Custom manufactured for a variety of applications to keep product flowing. Compared to single conductor heating elements, the EHH provides optimal heat transfer to a large (95%) surface area. Individual strand conductors are fixed in place and insulated with flexible, high-temperature fiber. The “Overwrap” layer of silicon rubber secures the conductors and provides a flexible cushion.
