There are a number of types of heat coil designs that you can use in your business. There are some that use hot air, and there are others that use water to transfer heat to wherever you want it to go. No matter the type of item you want to transfer, you’re going to need to use rolled pipe at some point in the operation, which will help the heat transfer without losing too much energy.
Heating coils are elements that can be formed into many shapes and sizes, depending on the needs of your project. The heat coil is a special product that comes in a spiraled design most often, and it is used in many different items, from your household hairdryer to ovens. You can also see smaller coils on heating units, like space heaters. Some may be found in shapes like squares or triangles in specialty situations.
A heating coil is usually powered by electricity, becomes hot, and then transfers heat along the hot piping. An exhaust fan may be used to push that heat off the coils and into a room, for instance, if you’re using it as a heater. This, in turn, heats the air and warms the surrounding atmosphere.
A heated coil must be able to stand up to the temperatures you’re exposing it to. If you’re using it in an industrial location, you may want to use pipes that can handle temperatures above what you’d likely see in a household. The larger coils, of course, can transfer more heat, but they also need to be the right size for your situation. At Bend IT, Inc., you can get coils bent in any number of traditional sizes, or you can have one built custom for your application.
Heat coils can also be used to prevent surges of electricity from reaching devices. These kinds of heating coils are used in electrical situations, like telephone wires or electrical outlets. The goal is to have enough coils that the temperature and power can be lowered to suit the use, and that prevents surges that can ruin your devices. But how does that work? There is usually a fuse. The fuse can be triggered by the heat coil breaking or melting down, and that helps protect you and your home or office.
There are many types of heat coils, so if you’re planning on working with electrics or transferring heat in an industrial setting, you’ll want to make sure you have the right one for the job. Bend IT, Inc. can help walk you through what you need, bend your coil to suit your project, and will be there when you need them for repairs or replacement parts.
