Thermolier Unit Heater (Steam-fed)

From: £840.00 ex VAT

Thermolier Unit Heaters are fan driven, hot air heating system products, which utilise heat exchange technology to keep costs at bay. The unit available to order online is the horizontal model for use with steam or hot water with the option of either single phase or 3 phase power.  Front louvers and careful situation of the units give exceptionally fast warm up and practical heat control in large spaces. Requiring little or no maintenance, this system is tough and efficient.

If you require variation from the standard i.e. vertical model or flameproof motor please contact our sales team who will be happy to help.

Outputs Below based on 3 Bar of Steam pressure.

Product Description

In designing Industrial Heat Exchangers capable of operating at high extremes of temperature and in harsh environments particular attention has been paid to the areas most likely to fail through leakage. This is typically the point of joining the tubes to the header, particularly in the case of copper tube to header joints.

Commercial Industrial Heat has supplied heaters to oil platforms in the Baring Sea where they provide plant room frost protection in conditions reaching -30°c. We have also used this technique in heat exchangers at Sizewell B, Sellafield and other nuclear sites, as well shipping over 5,000 Thermolier units since the technique was developed.

Case study:  Greencroft Bottling Plant

Design & Installation

Ensure no equipment is installed in a position that will obstruct the airflow from the unit. Even small bore pipe will cause turbulence in the air leaving the Unit and will prevent the unit delivering its full output into the occupied zone. The air intake should also be unobstructed.

Hangers must be fixed to both the unit the wall, truss or column. Ensure the hangers will allow the unit to move when the pipework expands.

The fanguard should be undamaged and securely fixed in the correct position.

Where the unit is fitted into ductwork a fan guard is not required. Check that the ductwork has provision for access to the motor and heater battery for annual  inspection and maintenance. A short length of soft, i.e. canvas ducting should be fitted between the unit and ductwork to stop any vibration being transmitted into the ductwork.

It is recommended that the louvres are set as follows: Horizontal Units; louvres parallel, angled slightly downwards. Downflow units; when mounted at the upper recommended height each set of louvres should be parallel and angled slightly outwards. When mounted at the lower mounting height, the outer louvres should be angled outwards and the inner louvres vertical. This gives the maximum spread for the Downflow Unit. It also applies when used as a door heater.
