Cool Touch™ Heat Torches

Farnam Custom Products has been manufacturing high quality inline heaters for over two decades. Tens of thousands of these devices have been built for many Fortune 1000 companies on a custom order basis. Based on this experience and increased demand, we created a family of Heat Torch process heaters which can be modularly assembled from a set of components to provide the best of both standardization and flexibility.

Farnam Heat Torches inline air heaters are ideal for rapidly heating air. Industrial strength open coil heaters provide efficient heat transfer through direct heating element contact with the airflow. Rapid heater response time enables precise output temperature control when these heaters are paired with off the shelf sensors and controllers. Robust design, high quality materials and workmanship provide long life and performance margin.

Cool Touch Diagram

Our highly efficient Cool Touch™ option minimizes the skin temperature of the heater and helps protect people and product from hot surfaces. This very efficient design reduces heat losses.

The large thermal storage capacity is particularly useful if you have an application requiring intermittent use and rapid response. This Cool Touch™ option is available for many of our Heat Torch sizes.

 

Cool Touch™ 050
 
  • The Cool Touch™ 050 features a triple-pass construction that minimizes skin temperatures on the heater. The high-efficiency design focuses heat where it's needed, protecting people and product from unnecessarily hot surfaces.
  • The triple-pass design offers superior performance in heat cycling applications due to its high internal thermal storage capacity. Outlet temperature quickly stabilizes when power is applied and regulation is easily maintained.
  • Our Cool Touch™ 050 is a 1" diameter heater which can provide up to 500 watts and handle up to 7.5 SCFM of air. Outlet temperatures up to 1300° F can be supplied for your heating requirements.
