Various types of pipe heating technologies are regularly employed in countless process pipe heating applications throughout industry. However, when processes involving temperature sensitive products require pipe heating, many pipe heating technologies are not up to the challenge. Too often the pipe heating technologies utilized do not provide the needed heating performance to successfully achieve the process requirements.  

Impedance pipe heating.  By now, those words probably conjure an image of long delivery lines:  a stainless tubing line in a food plant, or a carbon steel line in a production facility.  In either case, just a simple delivery line, taking product from a tank or storage area to a use point.  Is this the only place to use impedance?  Is it relegated to fixed delivery lines and nothing else?  Of course not!  While it is a simple, and effective method of heating pipe, it can also be a flexible one.

Recently, LDM Foods completed construction of a new canola crushing and oil refining plant at the heart of Canada’s canola growing region in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. This plant is capable of processing 2,500 metric tons of canola seed per day.  The seed is processed into food-grade Canola oil and pelletized meal for use as livestock feed.  Canola is the world's only "Made in Canada" crop and it is often the nation's most valuable one, with annual exports of canola seed, oil and meal that are valued at over three billion dollars.
