Jacketing Solution for Heating Valves, Instrumentation, Pumps, & Other Process Components
Since its introduction over 40 years ago, CSI’s ControHeat® jacket has been the preferred solution for heating valves, pumps, meters, fittings, flanges, and many other components. Mounting directly to off-the-shelf line-size equipment, ControHeat® jackets ensure uniform heat transfer to process components for the purposes of thermal maintenance, heat-up/melt-out, or cooling.
Each ControHeat® jacket is cast from ASTM B179 Grade A 356.2 copper-free aluminum to fit a unique piping system component. CSI maintains a pattern library for over 10,000 components, and new patterns can be made for almost any component. A carbon steel or stainless steel pressure chamber is embedded in the aluminum casting to contain the heating medium. The aluminum casting is not designed to hold pressure but only to promote uniform heat transfer around the piping component. A thin layer of heat transfer compound is applied to the inside of the ControHeat® to promote heat transfer between the aluminum jacket and the component.
