The global impact of COVID-19 on our people and the global economy is significant, and Watlow has taken a comprehensive approach to deal with the current crisis. Our contingency planning includes protecting our team members, communicating often with our customers and partners and maintaining the continuity of supply lines.

At the beginning of the pandemic, we set two priorities that guide our responses and decisions: the health and safety of our team members while continuing to supply essential products needed by our customers.

If you have questions about how the pandemic is impacting Watlow or Watlow’s response, please contact your Watlow representative.

Multicell Heaters Simulate Rocket Exhaust-- Provide Long Life At High Temperatures

Problem:

An aircraft/aerospace manufacturer required 2000°F (1090°C) hot gas to simulate the thrust from a rocket motor. Most hot gas generating systems were only able to achieve temperatures of 1200°F (650°C) continuously.

Solution:

Watlow was able to build the customer a system that produced the required high temperature by utilizing the capabilities of the multicell as its heat source. The system utilized a 1200°F (650°C) high pressure gas pre-heater, also built by Watlow, with a final nozzle temperature of 2000°F (1090°C). The system has been used over ten years without a single heater failure.
