Catalytic Heater Company, CATCO, manufactures catalytic heaters and related products for industrial applications.
Using catalytic technology, propane, natural gas or other hydrocarbon gas is converted to flameless infrared heat. Because they operate at a relatively low temperature (approximately 800° F), they are often used in hazardous or potentially hazardous environments. The heaters that are certified by Canadian Standards Association and by Factory Mutual.
A number of heater sizes are available, from 1,500 to 60,000 btus and can be ordered through BriceBarclay.
Heater Enclosure Packages
Prevent freezing in "Big Joe" and "Little Joe" type regulators safely and efficiently with CATCO enclosure packages.
Prevent freezing in small capacity, high pressure regulators exposed to high pressure drops.
Prevent freezing in variable and fixed orifice flow control valves such as Merla, Tejas and other chokes.
The most cost effective and efficient way to prevent freezing in Kimray, Fisher, Norriseal and other motor valves.
Used for applying heat to a gaspipeline, generally to controlfreezing on a regulator, valve orother device from the heaterpackage, located downstream.
Accessories & Parts
