Cast Aluminum Solutions Launches Industrial Heater


Cast Aluminum Solutions (CAS) - a supplier of precision-engineered thermal components used in semiconductor wafer processing applications - has announced the launch of its new CAST-X High Temperature Heater line.

CAST-X High Temp Heaters feature operating temperatures to 1110°F (600°C). These heaters are compatible with a wide array of liquids and gases, including flammable media.

Low flashpoint solvents, IPA, and other sensitive liquids can be heated using CAST-X High Temp. Appropriate gases include nitrogen, argon, process gases, and clean compressed air. Cryogenic gases, even under significant pressures, can be safely and efficiently vaporized and heated.

CAST-X HT is an easily-integrated “inline heater”, with industry-standard flow-tube sizes, and compatibility with worldwide voltages. These units have a very small footprint, and are compatible with standard control panel formats. CAST-X High Temperature Heaters are available in two sizes:

• CAST-X HT 500, has power to 1500 Watts, and a 1/4 inch fluid/gas flow-tube.

It is available with a certified Explosion Proof Terminal Enclosure or a No Enclosure option.

• CAST-X HT 2000 accommodates higher-flow applications with power to 6 kW, and a 1/2 inch flow-tube; it's available with either an Explosion-Proof or Water-Resistant terminal enclosure.

All CAST-X Heaters have a unique “no contact design”, where the heated media never contacts the heating element. The heated media (which can be liquid or gas) flows through a spiral-wound stainless steel or Inconel flow-tube, which is isolated inside the heater body: high-performance heating elements are also integrated within the heater body. This design is very safe, but also much cleaner than standard immersion heaters, where gases are in direct contact with heating elements.

Many of today's complex chemical reactions and advanced processing applications require temperatures that are much higher than traditional industrial heaters can deliver. The new CAST-X High Temp Heater is designed to fit those advanced thermal requirements.

According to Jeffrey Awe, Global Marketing Director at CAS, “The CAST-X Heater design has always been favored by engineers involved with complex gas vaporization processes and sophisticated solvent heating applications. Now, with CAST-X High Temp delivering temperatures to 600°C, the potential market penetration for the CAST-X Heater family is expanded significantly.”

Jerry Carlson, Divisional Vice President at CAS, further explained, “The CAST-X High Temp line occupies a unique position in the industrial heater marketplace. It combines the safety and purity of an isolated fluid path with the high operating temps demanded by today's fluid and gas applications.”

The CAST-X Heater family is manufactured by Cast Aluminum Solutions, headquartered in Batavia, Illinois.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
