Solar Turbines Australia routinely carries out repairs and maintenance of its machines and uses oxy-acetylene torches to heat parts like the compressor housing. Oxy-acetylene torches posed a risk to workers and also required long, laborious hours to get the parts to the required temperatures. Therefore, Solar Turbines Australia was looking for a safer and efficient heating process.
SBH Solutions suggested using Titan short-wave infrared heaters as a solution to replace the oxy-acetylene torches. The Titans significantly improved productivity as the heaters saved time, required less manpower and were also safe. Read more about the Solar Turbines case study here.
Solar Turbines Australia was thoroughly impressed with the Titan’s capabilities and suggested the company’s Texas factory replace their existing heating methods with the Titan heaters to improve productivity.
