Infrared Radiant HeatersThe Safest, Most Efficient Alternative Wherever Flameless Heat is RequiredCatalytic heating is the product of intensiveresearch efforts to quantify the effectivenessof catalysts in promoting the reaction ofcombustive gases with oxygen or air to produce heat. There is no flame to create a hazard, and catalytic heat can operate efficiently on low-cost natural gas, butane or use of catalytic heaters has beenapproved and accepted for dozens of indus-trial and petrochemical the Catalytic Principle WorksThe normal ignition temperature of natural gas (80%) in air (20%) at atmospherepressure is given as 1260 F. In the presence of the catalyst, thereaction occurs with sufficientvelocity to begin a chain reactionat 225 F. Thus, if natural gas isbrought into contact with the catalyst at 225 F in the presenceof oxygen, it is oxidized to car-bon dioxide and water heat is, therefore,evolved to raise the temperatureof the bed of the heater and oxi-dation will continue as long asgas and oxygen are flame is produced underthese conditions, since thegases are well below ignitiontemperature (1260 F). However,approximately the same amountof heat is produced as if the gashad been burned in the thermal efficiency of a catalytic heater is substantially higher than aconventional thecatalytic heating principle, aconsiderably larger proportion ofthe heat produced is radiant heatof wavelengths of 2 16 microns,and much less heat is required toheat the evolved no heat is utilized to heat thelarge volume of nitrogen associated with theoxygen as in a conventional heater becausemost of the heat content of the carbon diox-ide and water is recovered as radiant a catalytic heater, the temperatureattained in the catalyst bed is determined by two factors: the flow of the gas to the catalyst bed, and the rate at which oxygendiffuses through the bed to replace what wasconsumed in the the rate of gas flow is too high, notenough oxygen can enter to completely burnthe gas. If the rate is too low, the gas isburned deeper in the bed and the surfacecools. Therefore, the temperature of a catalyticheater is self-limiting and the system willoperate stably for long periods of time with-out intervention as long as gas and air Catalytic PrincipleCatalytic heat is radiant heat. Radiantheat, like light, is electromagnetic wave energythat travels in straight lines at 186,000 milesper second, casts shadows, may be trans-mitted, absorbed or reflected by matter, andmay be focused or dispersed by lenses orprisms of the proper source of radiant energy such as a catalytic heater floods the area around itwith heat energy in the same way that lightfloods the area around it. The intensity of theheat energy varies with the square of the distance (as does light) andtravels any distance withoutloss as long as it does not con-tact matter which absorbs absorption of radiantenergy by various materials is aproperty specific to each wavelengths will beabsorbed to a considerableextent, others less, and somevery little or not at all. Thus,each molecular substance hasan infrared absorption spec-trum which is a fingerprint ofthat substance. The absorptiondata for many substances canbe found in an atlas of infraredabsorption the absorption of radiantheat is highly selective, thereare many excellent applicationopportunities.

Now, there are even more reasons to specify the field-proven performance of genuine Freez-Fiter heaters. Advantages of Freez-Fiter Plus: Freez-Fiter Plus has been re-engineered forgreater airflow efficiency, and more uniform temperature control. New 6 enclosure has the same convenient (12 X 12 ) anduses the same R8 2500BTU heater, but the case is now 6 deep for significantly greater airflow performance. Single or double coil serpentines are 3/8 stainless steel, and have 2500 lbs. of maximumworking pressure. They are tested to 5000 lbs. Bulk heads have been re-engineered, and all high pressure connections are external: there are no high-pressure connections insidethe enclosure. The low pressure regulator is a standard 912,(BelGas or Fisher). These direct-operated,spring-loaded regulators have limited-capacityexternal relief across the diaphragm to minimizeover-pressure. Using natural gas, they have a 50 psi maximum inlet. The outlet is to operate the Freez-Fiter. The Mertek thermostatic gas valve replaces the older thermostat and Baso valve. Both thegas valve and safety valve are CSA and FM approved. For greatest safety and convenience, a shutoffvalve turns the gas off on the fuel inlet enteringthe heater. All units have a preheat fuel tube, which prevents high pressure regulator freeze-up. A filter on the low side of the fuel inlet slows the moisture and debris and prevents it fromentering the heater. This filter also extends theservice life of the pad. Freez-Fiter Plus units have a 0-15 gauge,easily visible from the front. Freez-Fiter units have a new rain-bill feature that protects the unit from rainwater. Every unit is leak-tested and pressure-checkedin the Bruest lab. Heater is Class 1, Division 1 and 2, Group Dapproved. (CSA and FM)Options for the Freez-Fiter Plusinclude a 12 volt or 120 volt design and several types of high pressureregulators. A larger unit, 16 X16 , with an R12 5000BTU heater is also available. Freez-Fiter Plus is a field-proven pilot heaterbacked by Bruest, the nation s most respectedprovider of heating systems for gas transmission and distribution lines, and utilities. Freez-Fiter Plus is a versatile system engineered for pilots, and for inline heating, too. It is ideal for the heating of gas lines that run to actuators, regulators or other equipment. SUPER FREEZ-FITER11SUPER FREEZ-FITER IS THE PIPELINE HEATER FORHIGH PRESSURE CUT, LOW FLOW HEATING APPLICATIONSThe Super Freez-Fiter pipeline heater has all the power, performance and pedigree of the industry-leading Bruest HotCat pipeline it s specifically engineered for high-pressure, low-flow applications. Super Freez-Fiter: Sources and conditions its own fuel Provides direct heating and maximum heat transfer efficiency. Only heat to duty required Can have 2, 4 or 6 flameless catalytic heaters, and one to three 21 coils exposed to the heat, providing optimum dwell time for low-flow applications Monitors the heated gas outlet temperature Modulates the fuel flow to minimize fuel consumption Pipeline heater is stand-alone, and self-contained 28,000 BTU, 56,000 BTU and 86,000 BTU units are available, standardThis unique pipeline heater has a small footprint, and weighs just 500 lbs.,so it can behandled without an autocar, and hauled in a truck. Super Freez-Fiter is also easy to install. Itrequires just input and output gas connections, and an electrical source for preheating theunit s Freez-Fiter can be started with 12 volt DC or 120 volt AC. It is for use in Class I,Division 1 or Division 2, Group D locations and has FM, CSA and ATEX Super Freez-Fiter pipeline heater is ruggedly constructed,with a stainless steel body,stainless steel serpentines, and a galvanized skid. It requires very little maintenance and iseasy to service. It also has great environmentals , there is no open flame or ethylene glycol,virtually no NOxor VOCs and no complaint-producing "firetube roar!"Super Freez-Fiter is the ultimate in pipeline freeze protection for low volume as a manual system, units can also be manufactured as a fully automatic system with an Allen-Bradley FlexLogix PLC. Gauges, regulators, and high-temp shut-down instrumentation are all built-in.
