Heaters for Conveyor Belts: Features & Benefits

Standard Features of Heaters for Conveyor Belts

  • Set it and forget it operation
  • Fuel oil or propane fired
  • Large fuel capacities allow the heater to run for weeks or months without refueling (depending on tank size selected)
  • Not affected by dust, rain, snow, or corrosive atmosphere
  • Electric available for some applications
  • Adjustable heat output from 35,000 BTU to over 1,000,000 BTU
  • Belt heaters controlled by built in slip switch that automatically stops heater when belt stops
  • Operates in dusty conditions using remote mounted air filtering system
  • BUTs/fuel consumption adjustable
  • Belt heaters are direct fired, causing instant de-icing of the belt surface
  • Self-contained fuel pump
  • Thermostatically controlled
  • UL approved components
  • Custom engineered units as required
  • Durable/dependable/efficient
  • Patented and patents pending
  • The most economical method of eliminating frost and ice on conveyor belts GUARANTEED
  • Lifetime stainless steel construction
  • Allowed by MSHA

Safety Features of Heaters for Conveyor Belts

  • UL approved burner unit
  • High temperature shut down
  • Fail safe shut down device stops belt heater when belt movement stops
  • Thermostatically controlled operation prevents unit from operating when temperatures rise
  • Burner unit automatically trips out should they fail to ignite. They must then be manually reset to resume operation.

Benefits of Heaters for Conveyor Belts

  • Totally eliminate downtime due to frost and ice on conveyor belts, drive rolls, idler rolls, clam shell gates, belt scrapers, and more. Stop damage to rip detection sensor loops.
  • Eliminate labor costs associated with personnel monitoring belt operations during severe weather
  • Significant cost savings and none of the environmental issues associated with using antifreeze
  • Guaranteed to provide around-the-clock elimination of frost and ice build-up, unlike hit and miss antifreeze systems
  • Eliminate the need to enclose conveyors, saving tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in construction costs
