Over the course of several years, Superheat has invested significant research and development into magnet technology that will forever change the design and installation methods of flexible ceramic heating pads on large vessels and big bore piping. Where others have failed, Superheat has put a priority on procurement research and testing of magnets. We have sourced magnets in which their electromagnetic field are minimally affected by standard Preheat and PWHT temperature parameters. The integration of these magnets into the traditional heater has created the new Superheat MagneMat™ which eliminates the requirement for pins during the heater setup process entirely. The results of this advancement has substantial cost and schedule savings to end users.
Resting on laurels and using traditional equipment and procedures are commonplace among heat treatment contractors. Operating expenses associated with research and development coupled with a reluctance towards change generally reduces the time and money spent on innovation. As a result of poor third party service offerings, facility owners are generally subjected to inherited liability.
Superheat understands the impact and fallout the pinning of heaters has on total project schedule, and thus cost, which stretch far beyond the heat treatment contractor as pre-vessel mapping, installation, and removal of pins requires pre/post grinding, NDE (nondestructive testing), and extensive quality management measures.
The integration of magnets into the traditional heater has created the new Superheat MagneMat™ eliminating the requirement for pins during the heater setup process entirely. Just another value added tool within our overall SmartWay™ Solution.
