eltherm is one of the leading suppliers of heated hoses / flexible heated lines. Whether freeze prevention or temperature maintenance: We ensure transport of liquid and gaseous media without loss of temperature. They are customized to reach the required temperature and match specifications.
There are different temperature ranges up to 100 °C, 200 °C, 250 °C or 450 °C.
Concerning electrical heat tracing, eltherm offers various possibilities to heat containers, pipes, tanks or vessels. Flexible transport without temperature loss of liquids and gases is also very important. Each system with heated hoses is tailor-made and convinces with high flexibility and load capacity.
Versatile application: Whether in use on moving production unit components, in mobile applications (e.g. gas analysis) or for balancing offset piping or to decouple production unit components (e.g. dosing technology).
A eltherm heated hose is individually designed and produced according to customer specifications. Our in-house development department will be pleased to implement your requirements and find a tailor-made solution. Heated hoses always consists of an inner liner, temperature sensor, heating conductor, insulation, outer jacket and an end cap. By means of a temperature sensor the information about the temperature can be processed and the heated hose can be operated via controller. They are therefore a component of the entire heated hose. Whether fittings are installed depends on the application, the operating pressure and temperature. In addition to the connection fittings, hose- or pipe protrusions are also possible. Of course, eltherm offers a flexible heated hose that can be used in hazardous areas.
You can choose from various materials according to your requirements. For example an outer jacket as a corrugated metal hose made of stainless steel is mechanically more robust and for higher temperatures. A silicone outer jacket is washable and for more flexibility and smaller bending radius. We focus on individuality, each heated hose is designed and produced according to specific customer specifications. For high-pressure applications, fluoropolymer and polyamide materials are used. With our products we can offer a solution for almost every application. Each heated hose line has an integrated trace heater (regulated or self-regulated) and thus ensures optimum heating of the medium.
There are a variety of applications, where a heated hose is needed. For example, a heated hose is very important for the chocolate production. Chocolate is one of the most temperature sensitive products. It requires a maintain temperature between 40 °C and 45 °C to ensure the quality and finally a good taste. An electrical heat tracing is needed to keep chocolate flowable the way along the entire transport from container or vessel to the final processing step.
According to your application we offer different types of heated hoses. Heated analysis lines (with or without filter) are used in several industries, for example automotive or emission monitoring. In addition we provide heated pressure hoses and heated hoses for loading and unloading such as in chocolate production and furthermore for the automotive, food, chemical and petrochemical industry.
We develop complete solutions for processes in production, storage, handling, and transport. Our engineers are committed to understanding your exact technical requirements. Their pride is to develop the best possible heat tracing solution.
