HTC TECHNOLOGY

Sanitary & Industrial Linear Actuator
The Hydrive™ Linear Actuator (HLA) is a highly-engineered actuator designed for a wide range of sanitary and industrial applications. Lean, compact, and connected, the HLA expands what is possible with actuators today. Smart and Connected: Hydrive Connect is simple actuator controls in the palm of your hand. The Hydrive Connect app can be used to adjust the position, monitor live performance, and retrieve historical data for deeper analysis.
Automatic flow controller for Hydroheaters from Hydro-Thermal
Automatic product flow technology that adjusts a Hydroheater to maintain constant pressure drop across the unit.
Uses: Local control panel with inputs for differential pressure transmitter signal, pressure drop set point and system enable (Auto/Manual).
Model Numbers: Any K610 - K617 Hydroheater installations (also compatible on older K510 - K515 models)
Parts are available for all discontinued heater models. New heater availability will vary. Please contact Hydro-Thermal for more information.

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS

Some of Hydro-Thermal’s heaters utilize a Hydrive Linear Actuator (HLA) with a built-in positioner. Other heaters utilize a Fisher reverse-acting diaphragm actuator (“fail close”), which are generally coupled with a filter/regulator and a Fisher DVC 2000 or a DVC 6200 positioner that converts a 4-20 mA DC input signal to pneumatic output signal to the actuator. For high vibration applications, remote mount positioners are available, depending on unique processing conditions or upon request. Please contact Hydro-Thermal for more details.
 
The Industrial Hydroheater is very robust and reliable, and can be further enhanced as needed for heating abrasive fluids. For many applications, a weld overlay and enriched material in key areas is sufficient. Some applications such as slurries with sand content require additional overlays outside the basic weld overlay. This technique has greatly increased the heater’s internal component lifespan. Other fluids have required more extensive modifications. In oil sands froth heating applications, for example, a combination of a weld overlay as well as the use of hard, abrasive resistant materials is recommended. For specific requirements for your application, please contact Hydro-Thermal directly.
 
All Industrial Hydroheaters include a combining tube. An extended combining tube may be recommended for a large T (high temperature rise). Please contact Hydro-Thermal for more details.
