Please use the 5 step process for selection. First, choose on the maximum rated exit temperature of the Airtorch. If below 900°C, please choose TA models e.g. VTA and MTA models. If above 925°C please choosethe MVTA or DPF models.
The Airtorch convective system uses a special class of elements to heat ambient air and direct that heated air towards a surface or into a chamber. Depending on the model, the Airtorch™ system can achieve temperatures ranging from room temperature to 1100-1200°C (~2200°F) with infinitely variable volume flow rates and no harmful emissions, providing a beneficial new method of heating with modern controls.
MHI Airtorch™ applications are in drying electrical varnish, weld pre-heating, die heating, plastic softening prior to forming, drying motor parts, removing moisture, expansion fitting, combustion,, simulation preheating and heating molds, curing, prosthetics, heat shrinking, compression molding, flock setting, curing catalysts drying slurries, freeze drying, improving ink print finish, finishing mirror drying, latex, heating adhesives, and general heating of chambers as shown below. Add to chambers for powder, liquid finishing. Add to continuous furnaces for wood conditioning, metal finishing and forming. Very smalll but finite temperature drop is experienced when directing Airtorch™ flow with insulated piping because of the high velocity.
The use of Airtorches™ may be classified into 3 major categories schematically drawn below
