TORREXX™ Electric LPG Vaporizer

TORREXX™ fills the application niche where 3-phase power is available and eliminates the corrosion, evaporation and frequent 'shut-downs' associated with electric waterbaths.

TORREXX defines the industrial standard for dry electric LPG and NH3 vaporizers. A robust 135amp rated contactor provides power to the heating elements. The modular temperature controller allows easy maintenance or replacement. In the event of a "high liquid level occurrence," our proprietary Liqui-Safe Valve™ prevents liquid LPG from passing downstream of the vaporizer. The valve provides visual indication of activation. This allows easy troubleshooting and assures the enduser the device is functioning properly.

Operational Characteristics

Torrexx-2The standard TORREXX is a single core, dry, electric vaporizer. No start/stop switches are used. When power is applied, the vaporizer is ON and ready for operation within seconds! Heating elements are cast "in-situ" in the aluminum core. Two thermocouples housed in a common sheath directly control normal operation and provide over-temperature protection. Operational set-points are factory set, however, field adjustments can be performed.

Fusible links installed in the Control System Housing provide additional over-temperature protection.

TORREXX is available in all common voltages. Explosion proof designs are available to meet either Class I, Division 1, Group D (per NFPA Pamphlet 70) or, ATEX marked to comply with CE type Zone I applications. Either design allows Torrexx to be installed adjacent to a tank or building with no minimum separation requirement.
