Tank heating and cooling jacket

An existing tank that has to be heated or cooled, can easily be assembled with a Pillow Plate tank heating and cooling jacket. This saves the costs of building a new tank. In addition, with a clamp-on jacket you can easily determine which specific place you want to heat or cool.
Omega Thermo Products makes both single embossed and double embossed clamp-on plates. All depending on your needs.

How does a Tank heating and cooling jacket work?
Based on your data, we calculate the required capacity to cool the existing tank or to heat it to the desired temperature.
Our tank clamp-on jackets are first welded as regular Pillow Plates, after which we roll and inflate them in the desired shape. You will receive the tank heating and cooling jacket completely finished with the right connections and drains. You only need to mount it on your tank. Our engineers will assist you with the assembly.

Double embossed tank clamp-on jacket
In most cases, Omega tank clamp-on jackets are double embossed. There are pillows on both sides of the jacket. By using heat conduction paste, the clamp-on jacket fits completely to your tank.

Single embossed tank clamp-on jacket
If you’d rather not want to work with this heat conduction paste, it is possible to opt for a single embossed clamp-on jacket.

Advantages

  • Easy to change
  • The old tank does not have to be replaced
  • No need for welding on the existing tank
  • Cooling or heating is physically separated from the tank containing the product
  • Exact determination where the tank needs to be cooled or heated
  • Even and constant heating or cooling of the product
  • Low volume of the clamp-on plates, so you can switch quickly and therefore control the temperature of the tank or reactor

Application
In many production processes where continuous cooling and / or heating of large quantities of products is required, an Omega Tank Clamp-on Plate is a solution.
Examples of industries where our clamp-on jackets are used are:

NO WELDING EXISTING VESSEL

HEAT TRANSFER SEPERATED FROM VESSEL

EXACT DETERMINATION OF HEAT TRANSFER

SPECIFICATIONS

All our Tank Clamp-on Plates are custom-made. Together with an engineer, we examine your requirements for cooling or heating and which capacity is suitable for you. Below are our options:

Refrigerants
Almost all refrigerants can be used with our Tank Clamp-on Plates, such as steam, thermal oil, R717, CO2, Propylene Glycol, Ethylene Glycol, R22, R134A and R404A.
If you want to use other cooling or heating media, please email our engineers.

Materials
Tank heating and cooling jackets are normally made of stainless steel, such as 304, 316, SMO-254 and Duplex 2205. If you want a cooler of different material, please email our engineers.
