    Electricfor Participates in an Abengoa Project for CIP Tanks

    Date: March 26, 2018 12:00 AM

    Within the set of applications of electric heating elements designed and manufactured by Electricfor, we find one for the generation of energy available for companies belonging to the renewable energy sector.
    Especially for this sector, Electricfor is participating in a project promoted by the Spanish company Abengoa and the Italian company Fisia Italimplant (both are part of a joint venture), which is located in the desalination plant Shuaibah III - 110 km south of Jeddah, in Saudi Arabia.
    Electricfor's contribution to the project consists of the installation of 4 elements of the GCB-N heating unit for the optimum heating of cleaning solutions in CIP tanks.
    The acronym CIP stands for 'Cleaning in Place', which refers to a type of cleaning whose main purpose is not to dismantle any element that is part of another - in this case a tank - and to carry out its cleaning through a water circuit and the dissolution of hot chemicals through the same tank or a pipe. The physical, chemical and bacteriological action of these products eliminates the remains of dirt and microorganisms present on surfaces. Consequently, the task of a CIP cleaning unit consists in the preparation of cleaning emulsions with a suitable concentration and temperature, and in the programming of the various cycles required for the washing of all the elements that are part of the desalination plant; it also has control over such important variables as temperature, flow rate and/or pressure.
    It is an element made up of 24 "U" shaped rods inserted into a 12.5 mm Super Austenitic 254SMO alloy tube and supplied mounted on an ANSI AISI 316L stainless steel flange. The group also has a stainless steel AISI 316L connection box with IP-65 protection against humidity. In this case, the four elements of the heating unit will be delivered in separate plates in AISI 316L stainless steel to avoid contact between the electric heating elements, as they will be evenly distributed over their entire length. Within the CIP tanks, the electric heating elements that are part of these heating elements will be able to heat the cleaning solutions to a temperature of 200°C.

    Self-regulating Heating Elements

    Date: May 24, 2016 12:00 AM

    The self-regulating heating elements by Electricfor, manufacturer of heating elements and heating equipment, are based on PTC heating elements. PTCs are small ceramic stones with a self-limiting temperature. Such stones may have various forms. Ceramics, in turn, triggers an ohmic rise in the heating element that causes a decrease in the heating power and a self-limiting on temperature. The ohmic rise produces a self-regulating heating element. The temperature is preset and varies the power to maintain it automatically. Consequently, PTC self-regulating heating elements provide a greater security due to the limitation of temperature; they are energetically efficient, accept any voltage from 12V to 240V, or tolerate temperatures of ± 5 ° C, among other features. Their design is very compact as they can be customised. Furthermore, they have a long durability. For further information on Electricfor's self-regulating heating elements, please contact its sales department.
