Reactor Heating Methods

Fortune 500 companies and university biochemistry and engineering departments use fluidized temperature baths for fast and efficient heating of many processes, including heating reactors and coils for dependable endothermic and exothermic reactions. Their large working volume, thermal capacity, temperature stability, and uniformity make them an optimal heating solution for laboratory and industrial applications.

Fluidized temperature baths offer excellent heat transfer because aluminum oxide’s liquid-like properties minimize heat soak and overall reaction times, providing expected results, unlike traditional laboratory ovens that are not as thermally responsive. The aluminum oxide media in a fluidized bath is inert, providing a safer operating environment, whereas salt baths are highly corrosive and very dangerous due to the risk of explosion when moisture is present. Any of our fluidized bath models can be used for reactor heating depending on the volume and size required to heat your custom reactor coil, biomass reactor, jacketed reactor, Parr reactor, or general-use laboratory reactor.

Heat Treatment

For quality control and research and development applications, our fluidized temperature baths provide fast and consistent heating to tooling, apparatus, machine parts, and devices for annealing, tempering, and hardening applications. Our standard baths operate up to 605ºC with additional models capable of operating up to 1100ºC. Our high-temperature fluidized bath models allow for tempering precision steel tools, devices, and fixtures. Additional models are optimized for cryogenic applications that operate down to -100ºC.

Does your application require a large working volume and good heat capacity for thermal stress testing, thermal failure mode analysis, and other temperature response investigations? Look no further!

Simply contact us to discuss your application and determine which fluidized temperature bath model is the best fit.

Customers Using Our Shape Setting and Heat Treatment Systems

Rector Heating Customers

“We use fluidized sand bath furnaces for fixed bed reactors when the reaction temperature is relatively high, and the temperature control is critical. We contacted Accurate Thermal Systems when an established vendor failed to deliver high-quality furnaces. They worked closely with us from the beginning to understand what we needed and modified their furnaces with additional safety features. Furthermore, the founder, Darren Sager, visited us on-site to solve a temperature control specification issue. We are very happy with the quality of the ATS furnaces so far and are especially grateful for the technical assistance the company has provided.”
