The Airtorch® is a unique low pressure-drop device that is used to quickly heat air and other process gasses to temperature ranging from 200C to 1300C. They find use in simulating or running power plants, large die heat-up, combustion/flow simulation, curing, drying or bonding of paper boards, removal of inorganic and organic salts, fuel cells, general heat treatment for bending and de-flashing/deburring, drum heating, plastic rolls, welding of plastics, soldering disinfection, drying, rapid paper and pulp production, binder burn off, chemical reactions for environment and sustainability applications, and general uniform heating requirements.
MHI Airtorch® models offer extremely high energy efficiencies. Where required they are manufactured to ASME specification-compliant pressure vessels/ schedules – built by an experienced company with patented technologies. Airtorch® models range from 1 KW to several MW (120/240/400/480/600V). The smaller KW models are LTA, VTA and MTA925 and GTA925. The larger flow models are MVTA and GTA (high-pressure) class. The trained MHI staff and technicians are committed to excellence.
Other MHI products like OAB® and Cascade e-ion also may also be used for such applications
Use powerful Airtorch for continuous VOC removal or use for rapid heat treatment and/or surface treatments like finishing to hardfacing. The C, CO and CO2 gas reactions including Boudouard reaction can be manipulated with (hot process gases ) inlcudes Air, N2, O2, CO2, Ar and more..
Combustion and Scorching/Burn off/Curing
The Airtorch® can be used for curing, surface burning and sealing and simulation operations. The possibilities are endless as Air, Nitrogen, Helium and Argon can be used.
Fuel Cells, High velocity drying and surface heating including simulation. Contact MHI for Nozzles supplied.
Large Die Heating/ Rapid Dry
The Airtorch™ allows large die heat-up; reclaim dies and aluminum. Combustion/flow simulation, curing, drying or bonding of paper boards. Removal of inorganic and organic salts, fuel cells, general heat treatment fr bending and de-flashing/deburring, drum heating, plastic rolls, welding organics like plastic soldering disinfection, drying, rapid paper and pulp dry. With a 4 kW machine plan to dry 2-4 Kg/hr of desiccant.
Binder Burn-Off. Heating for Tensile and Fatigue Testing
Easy, uniform, safe, and collectable binder burn off. For ceramics, nitrides, powder metals, etc. Substantially improve quality and productivity.
When high temperatures are needed in spaces where resistance heating elements cannot be used, the Airtorch™ provides the solution. Temperature variations matter during adhesive resin curing. Temperature profiling is particularly is important with an 8 Data Log during start up and cool down. Airtorch is instantaneous and uniform. OAB steam is instantaneous. Hybrid.
* Estimate only- subject to change. The estimate will vary by application, VOC removal consideration price is considerered primarily from gas stream only. All ROI’s require a 30 day assesment as the assesment may not be current.
Heating: Create a convective cavity around the assembly using multiple Airtorch™ units. Fixture Airtorches™ behind mold and electrodes at angles to create air movement. This should improve the overall heating of the mold.
Insulation: The assembly is surrounded by refractory blankets (all 5 sides) to retain as much heat inside as possible. Blankets can be supplied by MHI at customer’s request.
Solution: By supplementing the existing electrodes with the Airtorch™ and blankets, the watt density is increased on the mold thus reducing the workload of the existing electrodes which should improve performance and life. Other results include an increase of uniformity across the mold surface. Call MHI for more information.
Soldering, Blanketing, Melting and Dental
Use the Airtorch™ for softening, soldering, and melting of precious metals and glass. This feature is very applicable to the dental, jewelry, and glass industries. Use for rapid glazing, burnout and quick melts.
