As far as he is concerned the principle focus is the customer and our relationship is a partnership because without customers we do not have a company.

10. We are committed to future growth.

60 years sticker-1Braude is a small profitable company but we know that if we do not invest in the company we will not grow and will not be able to continue to provide the current level of service to our customers. Therefore all our developments are geared to enable us to provide better and more efficient products and service which in turn will lead to expansion. Our clients can be certain that we are here for the long term and will be able to continue to support our products once they are in use.

Robust and reliable

Neptune 3phase.jpg
Polaris Neptune Triple Phase Heater

In 1957, E. Braude (London) Ltd started out as a metal trading company then, moving into thermal process heating equipment manufacture in the 1970s, we built a reputation as a manufacturer of acid proof equipment which was reliable and durable. By specialising in heating and cooling equipment for corrosive liquids, Braude quickly became renowned by many customers in the electroplating and metal industries both in the UK and overseas.

One of the more recent developments in our product range is the introduction of the Polaris Neptune range of metal heaters which is designed for processes that do not require the application of fluoropolymer technology.

Neptune single phase
Polaris Neptune Single Phase Heater

The Polaris Neptune heaters are available in a variety of materials and the principle features are:
•           A robust construction
•           A choice of either Stainless Steel or Titanium with other materials available to order
•           Various Sizes from 1kW to 12kW
•           Option of either single or three phase
•           Resin heater connection sealed to IP65
•           Flying lead for easy connection
•           Over the side mounting with bracket provided
•           Choice of configurations to suit process tank and available space
•           Compatible with Thermaster and Levelmaster controllers
•           Quality and reliability of a trusted brand

As our products are already widely used in industries such as Galvanising, Aerospace, Metal finishing as well as in the Chemical Industry, we are now able to offer a more cost-effective product to a wider range of customers.

Our technical department will design and shape your customised element depending on the physical space available and the fluid that is to be heated. If our standard heaters do not suit your application, special voltage, power output, dimensions, and shapes can be manufactured in a short time on request.

A testimonial from a happy customer:

“We recently fitted two Braude Polaris Neptune Heaters to treatment tanks to control the temperature of alkaline solutions. The heaters are compact and were easily and quickly fitted to the tanks at the required height. The heaters have consistently maintained the required temperature of 50º – 65ºC through continuous operation. No adjustments or maintenance has been required since initial installation. The Polaris Neptune Heaters have proved to be an efficient and cost-effective means of controlling solution temperature.” — P. Smithers, Electroplating & Finishing Company, West Sussex.

Are you in a tight pickle with your tanks?

cat-4-770x405

CASE STUDY – Stainless Steel Rod Manufacturer, Sheffield

When a new pickling line was built, the design team at a leading manufacturer of stainless steel rod based in Sheffield, were faced with the problem of how to heat tanks of noxious, aggressive, corrosive liquids containing high quantities of scale and sludge, which are the by-products of the pickle process. The pickling solution was a Hydroflouric and Sulphuric acid mixture operating at 60°C, which would quickly attack conventional serpentines and plate heaters. There was the added danger of damage to any heater placed in the tank from the heavy coils of rod processed in each batch.

As specialist manufacturers of heating equipment for acids, BRAUDE were able to offer our JET STREAM External Heating System linked to a low pressure hot water supply as a solution to their requirement.

The JET STREAM installation system was so successful that there was no question which system the designers should use for the second pickle line – since then the company has continued to be a loyal customer for all of its ongoing installations.

Jetstream2 trans
Braude JET STREAM External Heat Exchange System

 

The main advantages of the JET STREAM system are:-

  • Fitted with BRAUDE NAUTILUS heating and cooling coils, the JET STREAM external tank heater is designed to stand next to the process tank leaving more space in your tank, which means there is no “clutter” in the tank allowing complete free and optimum use of the tank for processing.
  • The element is external to the process tank and therefore protected from damage by the heavy and awkward workloads frequently found in the steel processing industries.
  • Freestanding unit allows easy access for maintenance without having to drain or dump large process tanks of expensive chemicals giving tremendous saving on chemicals and downtime.
  • Construction is of high integrity polymers so that it does not corrode, even with the most aggressive chemical solutions.
  • Recirculation of liquid through the JET STREAM helps to ensure efficient heat transfer and assists in smoothing temperature distribution through the heated tank.
  • The heat output from a single JET STREAM is ideal for high volume batch pickling and other similar continuous production processes.

BRAUDE, who have many years of experience solving the problems associated with highly corrosive solutions, also manufacture the Polaris range of non-corrodable electric immersion heaters, Thermaster and Levelmaster controllers, and Nautilus and Electrojet heat exchangers for larger applications.

We’ve got it all under control.

Buying a heater is only part of the story; to maximise efficiency, energy consumption and equipment longevity, you will need a power supply and control system.

Accurate temperature control is essential for modern complex manufacturing plants and production processes. Besides the high demands of the industry, there is a need for simple and vigorous products for the construction and building business sector.

Braude identified this important core process and permanently invests in research and development of new components. Economic and efficient measurement and control technology saves energy, increases safety and the life cycle of our electrical heaters and systems through measurement, control, monitoring, and sensors.

We manufacture control panels specifically to suit your needs and compliant with all regulations.  They can be used with all Braude controllers.

Control panels
Keeping your ducks in a row – a consignment of Braude control panels is ready for action.

Built to suit your installation Braude engineers will discuss your control requirements and design a solution for your process.

  • Normally IP65 rated minimum
  • Suitable for wall mounting but can also be provided with frames for freestanding
  • Panels can link to the Braude range of controllers or can be supplied with their own panel mounted display units
  • Robust, safe and manufactured from high-quality materials

For heating, all control panels should contain

  • MCB – Miniature Circuit Breakers for overcurrent protection
  • RCD – Residual Current Devices for Earth Leakage protection (essential)
  • Contactors – Automatic Power Switching to the heater
  • Power Isolation – Switches to isolate the heaters

We have a full range of controllers to suit all applications and budgets, from simple frost protection of storage tanks to sophisticated control systems and panels.

It’s time to protect your tank! 

IMAG0733-1-1-1-1

It may be good news for snowmen and schoolchildren, but as another Arctic blast washes across Britain, it is absolutely vital to protect buildings, equipment, and grounds against freeze damage. 

If your storage tank or any pipework associated with your tank is susceptible to frost then following these tips will ensure your business is not affected by the harsh winter elements.

Whether you have a tank with Caustic Solution or Demineralised water, to ensure your process tank runs efficiently, it is important to maintain the temperature as the ambient temperature drops; with some solutions, a drop in temperature to as little as 10°C could mean your tank is at risk from frost.

Here are some tips to ensure that your business will not be affected by the winter months.

Immersion Heaters
Check all immersion heaters are operating. Do you have sufficient kW in each tank?

060986_Braude_popular_sml
Polaris Popular range of Electric Immersion Heaters

Check all leads for damage. If in doubt, Braude heaters may be returned for inspection and possible refurbishment.

2971 gridiron
Polaris Neptune immersion heater

Braude supply a comprehensive range of electric immersion heaters in various shapes, sizes, and outputs from 0.5kW to 18kW designed to suit virtually every application. 

Temperature Control
Check all temperature controllers are operating and in use. Verify temperature settings and test equipment accordingly.  Braude’s range of temperature and liquid level controllers will ensure that your tank remains at a suitable setting at all times. A properly operating controller ensures you do not have to worry about the tank temperature.

Braude Controllers
Master range of Controllers & Probes

Thermal & Vapour control
Identify areas where personal safety is at risk due to icy conditions caused by excess moisture escaping from the surface of your tanks. Insulate and minimise liquid loss from the surface of your tanks with Frogspawn thermal insulation spheres.

6885-170425_frogspawn-1920px
Frogspawn thermal insulation spheres

Surface Heating
Inspect conditions of all surface heaters such as heating tapes, heating cable, drum heaters, tank heaters, and pipe heaters.  Braude supply the Eltherm range of trace heating cables and equipment to complement our range of immersion heaters. These products complement the Braude range of heaters and extend from the metal-based industries to Chemical, Petrochemical, Food Processing, and Construction amongst others.  Products include self-regulating heating cable, high – temperature heating cable, control systems, thermal jackets. Look for damaged insulation on all externally exposed cables. Pay special attention to valves. This is a major choke point and susceptible to damage.
