Lindberg/MPH Ships One Exothermic Gas Atmosphere Generator to the Manufacturing Industry

Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of one gas-fired Exothermic atmosphere generator to the manufacturing industry.

This exothermic generator features an energy efficient design that provides reliable and economic operation. The unit is equipped with a mixing control system for exothermic gas generation that includes a touchscreen LCD color display and paperless chart recorder. The maximum exothermic gas output for the generator is 1,000 feet cubed (ft³) per hour.

The combustion chamber is designed with a reinforced, water jacketed, steel shell that is insulated with a high temperature refractory lining. The chamber includes UV flame detection and peep sight for observation of main burner operation. There is a fire-check at the burner inlet which will automatically block the mixture line in the event of a backfire. An electrically latched manual reset valve in the gas inlet line will shut down the generator in the event of low gas pressure, high gas pressure, or electric failure.

The atmosphere generator is accompanied by a refrigerant atmosphere gas dryer that has the capacity to cool the generated atmosphere gas to approximately +40°F dew point. The cooling system rapidly cools the generated gas to condense out moisture. It utilizes a 1-HP water-cooled condensing unit with high/low and differential oil pressure safety switches along with a hot gas bypass valve to prevent freeze-up during reduced load conditions.

“Lindberg/MPH’s exothermic gas generator design provides years of trouble-free operation. Prior to shipment, our team factory assembles, pre-wires, and pre-pipes these units to ensure everything meets our quality standards.”

– Bill St. Thomas, Business Development Manager
