Electric Air & Inert Gas Heaters

With years of experience working with industrial process heaters, STS has partnered with the TUTCO Heating Solutions Group to offer process air heaters.  Tutco air heaters are used for drying, sealing, curing, flashing, sterilizing, and plastics welding applications. If are you looking for assistance identifying a product for your application or you need a modified solution, contact us to discuss your needs.   Air Heaters Catalog

Closed-Loop Process Air Heaters 

Designed for use with compressed or regenerative blowers, Tutco SureHeat Closed-Loop Intelligent Process Heat Solutions come with built-in type K thermocouples to accurately measure temperature. They are designed for use with our Tutco SureHeat Control Panels ensuring precise voltage control and overshoot protection. Choices range from 1 or 3 phase power sources and voltages.

An electric air heater works by transferring electrical energy into a passing air stream. The power and amount of air flow will determine how hot the air heater element will get. The calculation tool in the upper right hand of the webpage will help determine the specifications and heater required for your application.  Operating Manual Master

The JET provides a compact and efficient heater solution for air temperatures up to 1400°F (760°C).

The Max provides a compact and efficient heater solution for air temperatures up to 1400°F (760°C).

The Max HT provides a compact and efficient high temperature solution for applications up to 1652°F (900°C). A dual probe type K thermocouple with a convenient terminal block is included for ease of wiring. Each exposed thermocouple probe is used to measure inlet and exit air temperature. One is typically used for process temperature control and the other to monitor the high temperature limit. Each heater has a convenient method for mounting and offers a ground stud for safe operation.

Threaded In-line Air Heaters

Threaded in-line air heaters are designed for industrial process heating applications requiring high-heat and high air pressure. Serpentine™ heating elements are installed into a 304 stainless steel housing and threaded at both ends. TUTCO SureHeat offer two styles, Style “A” and Style “B” inline air heaters. Style “A” should be used when a leak-proof air system is required.

Threaded inline air heaters are commonly connected to filtered compressed air supply lines and rapidly heat air for precise temperature control inline with heated industrial processes. Operating Manual Master

Custom Threaded In-line Air Heaters

If a standard threaded inline air heater solution is not suitable for your application, we can provide a custom inline solution to meet your high temperature/high-pressure needs. 

Custom Specialty Heaters 

If a standard threaded inline air heater solution is not suitable for your application, we can provide a custom inline solution to meet your high temperature/high-pressure needs. 

Specialty Flanged Inline (SFI) inline heaters offer superior performance over conventional sheathed (“tubular” or “immersion”) style heaters because they are designed specifically for air and inert gas applications. Our proprietary SERPENTINE™ technology facilitates a very high power density and compact overall design. SFI heaters can be as much as 8-12X smaller than equivalent tubular/immersion designs. With this advantage, installations become smaller, lighter, and more cost effective, with a faster heat-up and cool-down time. Whether for a research test stand, factory production line, or key component in a product or system, our Specialty Flanged Inline heater is the right heater solution for the job.

 Inline Duct Heaters provide ultra-compact, fast response heating for a multitude of industrial and research applications where gas pressure is ≤ 10 PSI (.7 Bar) and temperatures up to 1475°F (800 °C)
