Axial, Spiral And Coil Electric Heaters by SML Associates
  • For most electric heat applications the axial flow heater is the best choice because of its low cost of ownership, ease of maintenance and high safety and usability in explosion proof areas. There are some conditions when the low flow derivative of the axial heater, the spiral exchanger, is better. This design was developed for applications such as silane heating which have runaway potential and need even heating and tight temperature control as well as low volume.
  • The metal coil heater has been the standard approach to high temperature and high pressure gas heating and we have improved it with an additional central heater to make it more compact. It does offer a flexibility benefit since the coil acts like a spring which can be important in reducing thermal stress in connecting piping.
  • The quartz coil heater was developed for preheating corrosive semiconductor gases to 900 ºC and can be close coupled to the reactor because of the flexibility of the coil. Close coupling is very valuable in reducing heat losses.
