Over the course of several years, Superheat has invested significant R&D into magnet technology. Thus, forever changing the design and installation methods of the ceramic pad heater on large vessels and big bore piping.
Where others have failed, Superheat has sourced magnets in which their electromagnetic field are minimally affected by standard preheat and PWHT temperatures. The integration of these magnets into the traditional flexible ceramic pad heater has created the new Superheat MagneMat™, eliminating the requirement for pins during the onsite stress relieving setup process entirely. The results of this advancement will have substantial cost and schedule savings to your projects bottom line.
Heat treatment contractors often rely on traditional methods/equipment and are hesitant to invest in R&D due to the associated costs and aversion to change. As a result, innovation is often underutilized, leading to subpar third-party service offerings and increased liability for facility owners.
Superheat recognizes the impact that pinning a flexible ceramic pad heater has on project schedules and costs. The process includes pre-vessel mapping, installation, and removal of pins, which can require additional measures such as pre/post grinding and nondestructive testing. To address this issue, Superheat has introduced the MagneMat™, which integrates magnets into the traditional flexible ceramic pad heater, eliminating the need for pins during onsite stress relieving setup entirely. This innovative solution is part of our SmartWay™ offering. To learn more, read about one client’s experience with MagneMat™ on a recent coke drum repair by clicking the button below.
