Heat Optimized Thermodynamic or HOT Panel

It doesn’t matter if a customer needs to keep transported crude oil warm for complete drain-out or a chemical or food product transporter who needs to preserve properties or purity, the Heil Trailer HOT Panel™ will perform better.

Heil Trailer International, Co. announced today at the Mid-America Trucking Show the introduction of a new, proprietary heat panel technology for its trailers that offers greater thermal performance and efficiency than traditional heat panel designs.

Named the Heat Optimized Thermodynamic or HOT Panel™, this technology highlights the company’s commitment to innovation with a product of exceptional performance characteristics that far exceed conventional heat channel designs, according to Heil Trailer International, Co.’s Director Marketing & Product Development, Jay Morfitt.

“It doesn’t matter if a customer needs to keep transported crude oil warm for complete drain-out or a chemical or food product transporter who needs to preserve properties or purity, the Heil Trailer HOT Panel™ will perform better than any channel or heat panel out there.” said Morfitt.        

The unique pinpoint laser welds of the HOT Panel™ design offer higher precision and enable better integration than any other design. Morfitt added: “By creating this level of consistency in the laser welds and the pillowing process where it’s mated to the vessel, the HOT Panel™ design facilitates maximum swirl of the heating medium in operation—that latency before recirculation means better transfer of heat into the vessel for less energy—it’s a groundbreaking product.”

The company plans to begin HOT Panel™ integration into its trailer line beginning spring, 2015, as well as looking to expand its application of the technology. The panel, as well as other Heil Trailer products, will be on display at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) booth #16252, at the Kentucky Expo Center, Louisville, Kentucky, March 26-28.
