Asphalt Plant Heaters

Electric asphalt tank heaters offer the market a virtually maintenance-free, 100%-energy-efficient option, lasting for 20-30 years. This gives plants using electric heat a long-term benefit over the inefficient burning of fossil fuels.

Additional electric heat benefits include:

  • • Operating with on-demand electric rates
  • • Local electric company incentives
  • • Variable heat control
  • • Meets or exceeds all air quality standards

Each unit utilizes a drywell-style element that resides inside a pipe or tube, allowing the element to be accessed and removed from outside the tank for maintenance and eliminating the need to drain the tank to service the elements.

Each heating unit is designed for the individual application, and can be customized to meet the needs of the manufacturer or end user.

No tanks to drain. Easily installed the heavy-duty assemblies weld directly into storage tanks to deliver long term and economical performance. Once installed, the flexible heater elements are removable from heater tubes without the need to drain the tank or disconnect fluid lines. LO-DENSITY® IS A BIG PLUS. The large heater surface area is designed with a pre-determined low watt density (watts/sq. in.) giving low sheath temperatures to avoid coking or damage to the material being heated.

All-In-One Heater Kit
This remarkable Heater Kit can be used for heating an asphalt tank and supplying hot oil for the plant. Maintaining asphalt at desired temperatures is a primary feature of this new PHCo heating system. In addition it circulates oil through scavenger coils and over thermostat controlled electric booster heating elements. This provides hot oil for heating of jacketed lines, pumps and valves, drags, silo cones and plant components. The scavenger coils allow for quick heat up while booster coils elevate oil temperatures above the asphalt storage temperature if higher temperature hot oil is required.

Flanged Immersion Heaters for use in tanks, large vats and reservoirs. These heaters consist of a standard 150# or 300# flange for mounting and PHCo’s exclusive heating elements. The elements are "dry well" and "low density" design. The dry wells allow the elements to be serviced or replaced without draining the tank. The low watt density design keeps the element sheath temperature low. The heaters can be supplied either with or without our custom, U.L. Listed industrial control panels. PHCo offers many advantages over traditional style tubular elements.
