Case Studies

Top-Mount Immersion Heater

Foodservice Equipment Immersion Heaters

A manufacturer of beverage dispensing equipment for large outdoor venues contacted Durex for help.  In very cold weather conditions, refrigeration and freezing equipment were "freezing up" and not operating properly.  They needed heat in the various refrigerant media in order to provide consistent year-round temperature control and operation.  In addition, the heating solution had to fit within a very small footprint.…

Case Study Skid System

Steel Processing Skid System and Control Panel

A rolled steel manufacturing plant needed to expand their production capacity.  They wanted to replicate and improve existing heater systems in other countries and contacted Durex for help.  This new system, however, needed to have air outlet temperatures approaching 1400F°.  In addition, the existing designs were experiencing premature heater failures, so design improvements to increase life were also desired if possible to obtain.…

Cast Bronze Ring Heater

Paper Product Manufacturing Cast Heaters

A manufacturer of paper-based products for the consumer market had unsatisfactory results with the productivity of one of its manufacturing lines.  The product was manufactured in a heated press line.  The production volume had been ramped up and the heat recovery of the press could not keep up with the production demand.  Temperature precision and recovery time are critical to the high speed process.…

Aerospace Temperature Sensors

Aerospace Temperature Sensor Solution

As a major supplier to the aerospace aftermarket, the customer needed to design a temperature sensor assembly that was part of a larger electro-mechanical subassembly.  Replacing just the sensor probe was a more cost effective solution than replacing the entire assembly.   The sensor assembly included 3 separate TC probes wired in series to measure the average temperature of the 3 locations.  Critical to temperature measurement was a low resistance specification for the interconnecting wire between the probes.…
