Sta-Warm Electric manufactures melting and heating tanks to store and dispense temperature sensitive materials. Typical applications include melting and dispensing asphalt, pitch, wax, adhesives, plastics, and many other temperatures sensitive industrial compounds.
Dependable performance and low overall costs characterize Sta-Warm Tanks for melting compounds. The basic design of Sta-Warm equipment is highly efficient and has been proved satisfactory in thousands of installations for more than 80 years.
Each unit fits production requirements with greatest economy because Sta-Warm supplies specialized engineering experience and high standards of manufacturing quality.
For melting or heating pitch, asphalt, paraffin, waxes, plastics, oil, chemicals, and a wide variety of other compounds.
The famous Sta-Warm “Even Heat” multiple circuit, blanket type element is uniformly applied to the entire bottom area and up the sidewalls to approximately 75% of the wall height. Even heat is distributed at a low watt density (approximately 5 watts per square inch maximum) eliminating the danger of “hot” spots.
Available voltages are 120, 208, 240, 480 or 550, single or three phase, 50 or 60 cycle. Other voltages or frequencies to order.
Inner tanks and housings are made of electrically welded mild steel. On special order, the inner tank can be fabricated of stainless steel. A loose one-piece cover is furnished except when an agitator is used; a split cover is then supplied all with lift handles. Glass blanket or expanded perlite is used as thermal insulation to reduce heat loss.
Solid state relays, contactors, control transformers, etc., when required, are mounted in a gasketed enclosure.
Electronic controls closely control the wall temperature. Each tank and control is operated a minimum of 12 hours continuously during calibration test, insuring the purchaser, of highest quality and trouble-free operation. Standard temperature range is 60 - 550 F. Digital temperature controls can be custom calibrated to meet your specific application needs.
The standard outlet supplied is an electrically heated and thermostatically controlled brass, wheel type, gate valve. It is externally mounted for accessibility. All iron or stainless steel valves are available, if required, as well as quick opening gate valves or needle dispensing valves. Valves have internal thermostats that are factory set to your specific application needs.
Sta-Warm is prepared to furnish electrically heated tanks of other sizes, shapes, voltages or materials having special controls, outlets, zoned heating, etc., to the user’s particular requirements. Contact us about our confidential data sheet questionnaire.
