Over time, catalytic heaters(particularly those near the bottom of an oven) can become contaminated with dust, powder or over-spray, especially if a the house-keeping in the paint shop is not what it should be. This can result in poor heat output, wasted fuel and lost production.

Thermo Catalytic Systems Ltd.' personnel are trained and certified to open up contaminated or punctured catalytic heaters and patch or fully replace the catalyst pad, restoring the heater to 


performance. This can be done in our facility in Stoke-on-Trent, or

, to minimize down-time, in the customer's premises.

In the example below, a 12" x 60" heater has been badly contaminated with white paint from a curtain coating machine on a skirting board production line.

1. Before: the heater is so badly 
contaminated as to be useless.

2. During : The heater is drilled open, the
contaminated catalyst pad is replaced with
a new pad.

3. Completion : The heater is fitted with a
new wire mesh and re-riveted together.



: All heaters are bench- tested for gas

 tightness, temperature and combustion efficiency

before being returned to the customer.
