Industrial / Green PowerProducts
MOWE applications not limited to only offshore, we also perform work in power stations and petrochemical industries.
A. Super Heater for Power Station
Super Heater is a device used to convert saturated steam or wet steam into superheated steam or dry steam used in power stations. Superheated steam increases the plant’s capacity since each pound of steam contains a higher energy content (BTU) per pound than saturated steam.
Advantage of using superheated steam:
- Reduces condensation in steam lines and reduces engines steam consumption.
- - Eliminates erosion of turbine blading by insuring that only dry steam enters the turbine.
- - Reduces the size of the boiler, turbine and connecting piping for a given output.

Steam Super Heater
This compact steam super heater reaches high steam temperatures even at low process pressure. Due to the compact design and control concept, they are characterised by short response times, high control precision, and high availability (existing redundancies).
Our steam super heaters are mostly designed as a “stand-alone” system and completely assembled with all necessary safety devices and controls.
Area of application:
Autonomous, continuous steam superheating to a high steam temperature at low process pressure.
In the steam super heater, (saturated) steam is indirectly superheated by electrical tubular heaters. The desired steam temperature is used as a control variable. In case of a strongly varying throughput, the flow signal is also integrated into the control concept.
In this way, the heating capacity is optimally adapted to the process and overheating is prevented.
- Use even in explosive atmospheres
- - Large range of services and high energy density
- - High efficiency since the energy is almost completely converted into heat
- - High operating safety Easy control concept and high temperature consistency

Range of Heating Products
i) Process Heaters
The SDRC / DRC series is very diverse and is planned and manufactured according to the specifications of our customers. This series has been developed specifically to meet the needs of our customers in the chemical, petrochemical and refining industries, ie operators in whom explosion protection plays a central role.
Illustrates Process Heater - Type Series SDRC / DRC
The principle function of Process Heater is to have a continuous heating of the medium by heat exchange between tubular heater and medium. Our competency consists in individually and optimally adapting the heat exchange surface to the operating conditions to ensure that the process temperature is reached without exceeding the permissible heating surface temperature or the permissible pressure loss.
An essential feature of this process heater is its robustness, which is reflected in the choice of the explosion protection concept. The available material range of wetted parts ranges from unalloyed steels to alloyed heat-resistant grades to high-alloy stainless steels and nickel-based alloys.
Illustrates Hairpin Heating Elements
Hair heating elements are mainly used for heating up gases and liquids. The standard hairpin heating elements consist of a metal jacket pipe with a diameter of 8.5 to 16 mm, bended U-shaped. The heating wire is located in the centre of the pipe, embedded in highly compressed magnesium oxide. This guarantees an excellent isolation resistance and a perfect heat conductivity between heating conductor and jacket pipe. The elements are installed into the tube sheet of heating insert by brazing, welding or screw connections.
Illustrates Process Heater Switchboard and Control Cabinet
The power of all process heaters are regulated and control via switchboard and control panels for erection in distribution stations or outdoor, and also in hazardous areas. Functional acceptance test is performed prior to delivery.
Application range for Process Heaters include among others the chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, steel, textile, cellulose, oil and gas industries as well as power stations and refineries.
ii) Tank Heaters
Immersion heater is a device which is installed in a tank or container to heat the liquid directly from inside the tank.
Flanged immersion heaters are one of the most widely used methods designed for use in hot water tanks, oil tanks, cargo tanks and pressurized vessels for heating liquids (such as water, oil, heat transfer fluid and corrosive solutions). The direct immersion method is energy efficient and easily monitored and controlled.

Mowe design and integrate immersion heater into Hot Water Skid/package. We have gained well reputation from Shell. Refer to our Hot Water Skid for more details.
iii) Electric Heat Tracing
Heat tape or surface heating, is a system used to maintain or raise the temperature of pipes, valves and tanks. Trace heating takes the form of an electrical heating elements, tubes, heating wires or various heating solution run in physical contact along the length of a pipe. The pipe must then be covered with thermal insulation to retain heat losses from the pipe. Heat generated by the element then maintains the temperature of the pipe. Trace heating may be used to protect pipes from freezing, to maintain a constant flow temperature in hot water systems, or to maintain process temperatures for piping that must transport substances that solidify at ambient temperatures. Electric trace heating cables are an alternative to steam trace heating where steam is not available or unwanted.

iv) Concrete / Cold Room & Special Heating
Underfloor heating and cooling is a form of central heating and cooling which achieves indoor climate control for thermal comfort using conduction, radiation and convection. It is definitely also used for thermal control in prevention of concrete moist in cold rooms.
Illustrates Electric Heating Element
Electric systems are used only for heating and employ non-corrosive, flexible heating elements including cables, pre-formed cable mats, bronze mesh, and carbon films. Due to their low profile they can be installed in a thermal mass or directly under floor finishes. Electric systems can also take advantage of time-of-use electricity metering and are frequently used as carpet heaters, portable under area rug heaters, under laminate floor heaters, under tile heating, under wood floor heating, and floor warming systems, including under shower floor and seat heating. Large electric systems also require skilled designers and tradespeople but this is less so for small floor warming systems. Electric systems use fewer components and are simpler to install and commission than hydronic systems. Some electric systems use line voltage technology while others use low voltage technology. Power consumption of an electric system is not based on voltage but rather wattage output produced by the heating element.
Illustrates Electric Underfloor Heating System
Or you are trying to accomplish with an underfloor heater in this case is to keep the ground underneath your freezer from "heaving". When water freezes it expands, this can cause the ground to "heave" and break your floor. As it heaves more liquid gets under it, freezes, and heaves again. Buildings are damaged easily by heaving floors.
Heating do not just take place in floors, heating can also take place with pipes, tanks and other locations. Pipe heating / Tank heating will prevent the liquid form solidifying and provide the much needed process flow.

D. Industrial Automation - Hydraulics + Pneumatics + Electrics
Industrial Automation is the replacement with computers and machines to that of human thinking. The word Automation gives the meaning ‘self dictating’ or ‘a mechanism move by itself’ that derived from the Greek words Auto and Matos where auto means self while Matos means moving.
In a brief, industrial automation can be defined as the use of set technologies and automatic control devices that results the automatic operation and control of industrial processes without significant human intervention and achieving superior performance than manual control. These automation devices include PLCs, PCs, PACs, etc. and technologies include various industrial communication systems.
As MOWE, we understood this concept well and always aspire to set a good benchmark in automation with choosing correcting and mating components, highly reliable components and widely available components.
