Oakland, MD (PRWEB) April 01, 2011
Born in the coal mines of West Virginia in 1984, Thermo-Tech, Inc. (Thermo-Tech) conveyor belt heaters are now being utilized in sand and gravel plants to expand operations through winter months. Thermo-Tech announces it's official entry into this new market with it's inaugural sale to Holliston Sand of Slatersville, RI.
The patented Thermo-Tech belt heater design utilizes a controlled and continuous open flame to eliminate icing and moisture problems on conveyor belts, drive rolls and bend pulleys. Says Steve Dixon, inventor of Thermo-Tech belt heaters, “Often times, our customers desperately need to operate longer into the winter months without using unreliable antifreeze and uncontrolled open flames that might damage their belts. Our heaters offer a safe and reliable solution that keep them up and running as long as they may need”.
Tested and permitted for use on above ground belts by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, Thermo-Tech heaters feature an automatic shut down system so heaters stop when belts do. Thermostat driven controls start heaters when temperatures drop, but only when belts are moving. These control systems result in a ‘set it and forget it’ solution to ice and moisture related problems.
