Using Limpet Heaters to Keep Flanges from Viscous Blockages
Flanges on pipes, pumps, valves, meters and other industrial process equipment are notorious for freezing up in cold weather and are challenging to heat using traditional heating systems, such as electrical trace heating or hot water.
Flanges act as big radiators of heat, giving off as much heat as about 1metre of pipework.
Using Limpet Heating's unique 'OmegaLimpet' approach, the problem of viscous products blocking in flanges has been proven to be eliminated.
Flanges can be heated using several different types of Limpet:
This is the simplest form of OmegaLimpet. It uses a MicroLimpet as the heat source and the aluminium 'omega' adaptorblock is custome made to fit snugly onto the flange, where it is secured using a long blot that nips the 'lege' together
We have used the 'Omega' concept in numerous different ways:
