We are very pleased to introduce the FTH 4. This is the most compact and cost effective version of the flow through heater range. It will deliver 97 degC water, from cold, in sub 5 seconds. It can be supplied as a bare heater or with everything included: water fittings, NTC, thermal protection. As a compromise for cost the FTH 4 is good for max 20 bar operating pressure but not for making steam.
In response to customer feedback, we have launched the vertical steamer, which has the same features as the horizontal steamer, in a package that is easier to integrate within many ovens.
The low mass, twin track, thick film heater gives rapid start stop to the flow of steam & precise control of the volume, up to 40 grams per minute.
Water level sensing, thermal safety protection, scale resistance and NTC for control are included.
Following the success of the Flow Through Heater MKII Ferro Techniek has launched the FTH XL. This new Flow Through Heater that is also based on thick film technology has a max power of 3400W at 230V. The FTH XL is an instant heater that is able to handle high flow rates at a low back pressure because of its bigger channel size. Energy efficiency is key. There is strong interest from pharmaceutical companies, vending machine manufacturers and the medical device industry. All materials are FDA compliant!
At the second annual Congress of High Tech Platform, the networking platform for the Dutch manufacturing industry, Ferro Techniek has gained another award with the Flow Through heater mkII. During this event three candidates had to pitch their innovation and the audience was asked to vote for the winner. Ferro Techniek finally turned out to be the winner of Inspiration and Innovation Award 2015. Key note speaker Willem Vermeend, former Secretary of State quoted: “ great innovation, great pitch.”
During a four day innovation festival Ferro Techniek won both the jury and audience prizes. We received plenty of applause for The Flow Through Heater mkII, which was the winning contest entry. Quote of the jury: “The FTH Ⅱ fits perfectly in current times as It is a fast and sustainable product….”
The Region “Achterhoek” where Ferro Techniek is located is known as a center of manufacturing and innovation power. For the coming year Ferro Techniiek may call themselves “Top Ambassador of the Achterhoek”.
