We hold stock of both finished goods and parts so that we can either despatch the same day as we receive an order or if it is a non stock item we can usually manufacture in a very short space of time.

5. Our full range of products, which range from heaters, controllers and control panels, are available from one source

We are continually adding to the product range as we believe that is it easier for many customers to be able to order from one place. The most recent product to be added  is the Polaris Neptune range of Tubular MI heaters. These have a moisture proof head to encapsulate the joint between the heater and the lead which is vital in any wet environment. We can supply controllers and ancillaries to enable trouble free safe operation of all heating equipment. We also supply surface heating cables and jackets.

Ever wish you had more space in your tank..?

Tight squeeze

Fitted with BRAUDE Polaris heaters, the ELECTROJET external electric tank heater is designed to stand next to the process tank leaving more space in your tank.061447_Braude_electrojet

  • Fitted with PTFE electric elements housed in a cylinder 900mm high x 400mm diameter, using corrosion resistant polymers throughout the construction
  • Will not corrode in acid process solution
  • Free standing and easy to fit to existing tanks
  • Ratings from 3kW to 24kW available
  • Can be supplied separately or complete with pumps and controller to suit your application
  • Existing pumps (such as filter pumps), and temperature control systems can be used
  • Recirculation of liquid through the ELECTROJET helps to ensure efficient heat transfer and assists in smoothing temperature distribution through the heated tank
  • Maintenance can be carried out without disturbing or emptying process chemicals

The heater has been developed for use with the aggressive and corrosive chemicals typically found in the electroplating, metal finishing, steel and chemical industries, and is ideal for chemical processes and reactors, electroplating tanks and acid pickling.  Tanks, where space is at a premium, of awkward shape or construction for fitting internal heaters or containing other equipment such as mixers, will all benefit from the use of ELECTROJET.

BRAUDE, who have many years experience of 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 Jet Stream heat exchangers for larger applications.

Four wheels, a steering wheel and an engine… doesn’t make it a reliable vehicle!

Without sensitive and carefully designed monitoring equipment even the most robust and well-built industrial machinery or processes can go catastrophically wrong…

Plating and process tanks need reliable control. The Braude Thermaster TS has been produced specifically for those applications.

Why use a Braude Thermaster TS temperature sender?

The Thermaster TS temperature sender uses tried and tested technology from Braude and is designed to provide a 4-20mA output signal to a programmable logic controller (PLC) or similar device for monitoring temperature in a process tank. Incorporating a chemically resistant PT100 sensor encased in Teflon, with a choice of a PP/PVC/PVDF guide tube makes it a completely self-contained unit that can be easily connected to your existing control system.

Themaster TS
Thermaster TS temperature sender

The Thermaster TS is perfect for sending data to a PLC which can be set programmed to monitor and control the temperature of the process tank. It can easily be linked to a multiple tank system and monitored from one central, often remote, location.

The 4-20 mA current output signal is relatively immune to ambient electrical noise and is not degraded by long distance transmission, even over a small diameter wire. Adding a temperature transmitter to a system eliminates the problem of having to provide long runs of costly wire and an extensive amount of shielding.

Can you afford NOT to use Braude Thermaster TS temperature senders in your tanks ..?

Whether you are a sole trader working in a small plating shop or a multi-national specialist plant-building company, as all of our products come in a very wide variety of standard sizes, shapes and power outputs, we have a product to suit every situation. However, a high percentage of our orders are for custom designed and built units.

Our products are widely used in industries such as Galvanising, Aerospace, Metal finishing as well as in the Chemical Industry and our in-house experts are able to offer help and advice that ensures new installations or modifications remain cost effective and on-budget.

As always, customer service is paramount and we aim to provide the best possible attention to each and every one of our customers.

It’s time to protect your tank!

It is estimated to be the coldest winter in 50 years so it has never been more vital to be anticipating freezing conditions by protecting 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, it is essential that when the ambient temperature drops your process tank runs efficiently. With some solutions your tank could be at risk from frost if there is a drop in temperature to as little as 10°C, at times even the most obvious answers can be over looked, here are some tips to ensure that your business will not be affected by the winter months.

Frost protection

Immersion Heaters

  • Check all Immersion Heaters are operating.
  • Do you have sufficient kW in each tank?
  • Check all leads for damage.
  • If in doubt, Braude heaters may be returned for inspection and possible refurbishment .

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.

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 external exposed cables.
  • Pay special attention to valves. This is a major choke point and susceptible to damage.
  • Identify areas where personal safety is at risk due to icy conditions.
  • Develop a slip prevention maintenance plan.

Please contact a member of our sales/technical team on 01252 876123 and we will be more than happy to run through your options to ensure your business is not effected by the winter months.
