Our Frost Heave Prevention Systems are perfect for the prevention of ice build up on the floor of cold stores and blast freezers. They use a heat barrier controlled by a thermostat to stop permafrost reaching the base concrete.
Loheat's modular heating systems are made up of strong, moisture resistant Polyfoam boards (25mm or 12mm thick) that are individually designed for your application by our very own CAD team who will also provide comprehensive support, every step of the way. For more information on our Frost Heave Prevention Systems, please follow the link.
Amongst our range of coldstore safety products are entrapment alarm systems featuring a powerful red flashing alarm siren which is quickly and easily reset. These have been tested to work in temperatures as low as -40 degrees C. The alarm switch is operated by a red plastic-coated steel wire, while operating instructions are luminous for low light situations. A permanent light indicates the location of the alarm, giving employees assurance of their safety. A red reassurance light comes on when the alarm is activated. To find out exactly how these alarm systems work, simply follow the link to the relevant section of the Loheat website.
Our door open alarms provide users with energy saving solutions. These energy saving models feature a flashing red beacon, 100db alarm that is activated when the door is left open, a timer that can be set to suit user requirements, a door limit switch plus one meter of cable and conduit and a screened ABS box. The door open alarm is available with a magnetic switch or door limit switch and can be labelled to suit customer requirements.
As part of our range of Coldstore products, Loheat can supply both column heating and partition heating systems. We construct our column heating from stainless steel cable which is able to cope with heavy duty usage. This product is also designed and pre-formed to be compatible with a variety of different sizes and shapes of both steel and concrete columns. Our partition heating systems have been specially designed to help stop cold tracking through rooms of different temperatures within the same coldroom. Partition heaters have also be manufactured with heavy duty cable made from stainless steel.
Door and threshold heating systems are one of the most common methods of providing continuous access through hinged and sliding doors for all different types of low temperature stores. Our Door Frame Heater Systems use low voltage, 304 grade stainless steel strips in 6mm, 12mm and 25mm widths. Two layers of polyester tape enclose the elements, while protection from operational damage comes in the form of 1.6mm thick aluminium or steel (galvanised or stainless) plate which is screwed to the door jamb. Threshold heaters are manufactured from heavy duty stainless steel wire that is encapsulated in PVC. These are made into a grid formation for installation under the top screed. Our low voltage transformers have full fuse protection on output and input, and come with warning light and variable tappings for different loads.
Anti-condensation mats from Loheat's Coldstore range of products are extremely similar to our Traditional Heater mats, featuring the same design, but giving a much higher ouput of heat. Capable of producing 20 to 40 watts per square metre of matting, our anti-condensation mats have been manufactured from heavy duty High Grade 3.2 millimetre stainless steel which has been sheathed in 6 millimetres of PVC. The installation process for our anti-condensation mats is straightforward and can be carried out by our own Loheat engineers or by independent qualified operators, depending on your exact requirements.
Ramp heating is often needed in addition to threshold heating. Where this is required, Loheat will produce full layout drawings enabling the tailor-made elements to be fitted under the top screed. Our elements - made up of 10 gauge stainless steel wire - are connected by cold tails to a thermostat via a bus bar chamber. They are easy to install and are ideal for any hinged or sliding door that requires continuous heating. Full fitting and wiring instructions are provided.
Pressure changes, whether inside or outside a low temperature coldstore, will cause forces to act on wall and roof panels. Significant pressure decrease can potentially deflect panels inwards and make doors difficult or impossible to open, while pressure increases can deflect panels outwards, forcing doors open. Quickly and easily installed, Loheat's pressure relief valves utilise unique semi-circular spring loaded flaps to allow rapid air movement and equalise pressure. These are suitable for panels that are between 65mm and 150mm thick, though they are easily adapted for thicker panels.
Our ALUZINC cased water heaters are both tough and highly resistant to corrosion, giving them a long industrial life. Available in a variety of sizes from 110 litres to 680 litres, all models comprise of a large external header tank with brass ball valve, an inlet service valve, power light, insulated lid, and heavy duty Incalloy heating elements. They can have either 1 or 2 x 28mm water outlets, depending on the size. Starter models feature a manually operated ball valve below the header tank which stops cold water entering the vessel when drawing off hot water. The temperature is controlled using a rod thermostat, while an analogue thermometer reads it. Loheat offers a range of factory fitted options, allowing you to choose the most appropriate product for your application.
Loheat offers several fill and heating controllers for dairy and farm applications. Our range includes; the VAC Pac & 24 Hour Timeclock Pac, including an external vacuum operated pinch valve for stopping cold water entry when drawing hot water, a digital thermostat and sensor probe to set and display temperature, and a 24 hour timeclock for heat cycle control; the DX Pac, fitted with 0.5hp hot water pump that delivers 20 litres per minute at 20 PSI, as well as a 24 or 48 hr clock for controlling heating cycles; the Time Delay Relay Pac, for eliminating the ingress of cold water during tank cleaning cycle; and the Full Remote Pac, a remote wall-mounted control box.
Loheat also offers top quality unvented hot water cylinders. These are manufactured from duplex stainless steel and designed for use with dairy farm robotic milking systems. Our water heaters feature:
Our heavy duty stands are designed and recommended for the mounting of Loheat water heaters. They are strong and robust with tough galvanised stands for safe elevation of the water heater to the required height. The stands evenly distributes the weight of the water heater for effective, long term use. They feature 16 gauge steel tray to support the base of the water heater, 14 gauge steel legs for strength, folded back foot pattern for high load bearing, leg clamping flanges for rigidity, handy storage tray and three available heights to suit each size heater. All stands are supplied in kit form for easy on-site assembly.
From Loheat's Dairy & Farm products range, our 48 hour timeclocks are capable of providing typical savings in energy costs of over £100 annually. This works out as an incredible 100% payback on the cost of the product in the first 12 months of usage. Easy to install and set, our 48 timeclock features a neon indicator and a manual override for ease of use. Over a 48 period, the timeclock allows for up to 96 half hour switchings. To protect the unit, the timeclock is wrapped in a high impact case that is also water resistant. Our three standard models range from 3 to 12 kw while other kw ratings can be made on request.
Loheat's udderwash heaters come in 25 or 50 litre capacity options and are suitable for udder washing in large parlours and in areas where smaller quantities of constant hot water are required on a regular basis. Our heaters are open vented systems with an integral cold water supply, eradicating the need for a cold loft tank. Powered directly from a mains supply, stainless steel Incalloy heating elements maintain a suitable water temperature for udder washing. A rod thermostat makes temperature fully controllable. 25 litre tanks measure 725mm x 470mm x 210mm. 50 litre tanks measure 770mm x 600mm x 320mm.
