Tank Silo Heating with Heating Cable
Temperature Protection and Freezing Prevention in Tanks and Silos
Moisture and condensation in storage tanks can cause deterioration and adhesion of the material in the silo and tank. This situation creates various problems in terms of flue gases. To prevent these problems, heating is done on the tank surfaces with a heater cable.
The heating cable with tank heating systems used in the heat tracing system have an important position among other heating systems. The simple of installation and low cost maintenance system made by the heating cable are among the important reasons for preference compared to conventional heating methods. Tank Heating applications in industrial facilities can vary according to needs of facilities. Tank heating applications in industrial plants may change to needs of the plants . Different designs and solutions are offered for different applications such as protection against freezing ,raising tempature , maintaining the temperatures of products in storage tanks or silos. Tank and silo heating systems made with heating cable keep the product at the same temperature with its easy control and provide uninterrupted production. Heating cable selections vary depending on the structure of the tanks and the heat requirement. Electrical heating cable selection is made specifically for each application and control systems are designed specifically for the application. Form Engineering with 4 different heating cable manufacturers distributorship and wide product range, offer suitable solutions for different business structures of different facilities .
Genarally, in tank heating applications, heating cables are usually wound on the outer surface of the tank but there are also systems using specially produced in-tank heating cables.
Today, tank fronts are controlled according to wind and solar position using a heating cable ın this way the tanks are heated more efficiently in terms of energy
“Europe’s largest sugar silo heating business was completed by Form Engineering in 2016.”
“This sugar silo(42.6 mt. with a diameter of 55.5 mt. high) is heated to 20 ° C wall temperature
