Heateflex exhibited for the first time at the MD&M (Medical Design & Manufacturing) West trade show, held in Anaheim, CA from February 5-7. The company showcased it’s new sanitary-design in-line fluid heater, engineered specifically for the biopharmaceutical and medical device industries where both hygiene and cleanliness are essential requirements.
The new 316L stainless steel heater features electropolished and passivated wetted surfaces with a 32 RA (Roughness Average) finish. Most notably, the new heater is designed with zero threads, zero dead-legs, and complete system drain-ability. These features reduce particle entrapment and bacteria growth and prevent microbial contamination.
The sanitary design heater also features a patented tri-clamp connection between the heater and the housing, a reducer on the bottom for system draining, and a removable heater element and end cap for easy cleaning and inspection. Models of the heater are available in 12 to 24 kW outputs, at voltages of 208-480 VAC, 3-phase.
