Heating Pumps Electrically
Viking Pump has released its Electrically Heated pumps, which are available with Viking’s Heavy Duty Universal Seal series, for the heating of asphalt and bitumen. The heaters are located on the bracket to ensure asphalt/bitumen is in a liquid state at the seal chamber prior to startup. In addition, the use of electric heating eliminates hot oil or steam connections for quicker removal from service and easier routine maintenance. According to the company, users can also eliminate environmental costs through a reduction of hot oil leakage and housekeeping.
