Finding the right heating system for your plant can be a challenge, especially if you have some unique criteria that need to be met.

From size or layout requirements to performance requirements, if you’re looking for a heating system or heating system component that doesn’t quite align with standard industry equipment specifications you may run into trouble finding what you need.

Many plant managers are hesitant to investigate custom industrial heating equipment options for budgetary reasons, but sometimes customized equipment is undeniably the best way to go.

So when should you adjust your search and begin actively shopping for a customized system for your facility? Read on for valuable guidance to help you on your quest.

Scenarios When Customized Thermal Fluid Heating Systems Are Best

There are numerous situations when investing in a custom thermal fluid heating system is the best thing to do for your facility. Here are a few of the most common scenarios we’ve seen:

1. When You Need a Part That Accommodates an Existing System

Stocking spare parts can benefit your facility in many ways, but even with a spare parts management program in place there will be times when you just don’t have the right part on hand to tackle a system repair.

If you’re looking for a part that has been discontinued or you can’t find a standard system component that is compatible with the rest of your equipment, it may be in your best interest to start investigating customized options. This is especially true if you’re confident that the rest of your system is still in good working order. It doesn’t make sense to replace an entire system if a customized part can get you back up and running.

2. When a System Needs To Meet Unique Performance Requirements

If you need a system to do a specific thing in a specific way, sometimes standard equipment just won’t cut it. Feel like you have exhausted your options? Then it’s time to start considering a customized industrial heating system for your facility.

Whether it’s efficiency, design, or output standards that you’re looking to meet, having a system designed to meet your specifications can give you peace of mind and benefit your facility in the long run.

3. When Your Specifications Aren’t Met By Standard Equipment

Sometimes you know exactly what you need, but you just can’t find a piece of standard equipment that meets those needs. And sometimes that’s because no standardized piece of equipment to satisfy that group of unique specifications exists.

But just because it doesn’t exist doesn’t mean that it can’t exist. If you’ve searched high and low for a standard piece of equipment that meets all of your specifications and you’re not willing to settle for something that falls short, it’s time to consider customized heating equipment.

4. When Your Facility Performs a Specialized Process

If you work in a specialized industry or your facility performs a process that’s uncommon or unique, it can be particularly challenging to find the industrial heating equipment that you need. Sometimes standard equipment just doesn’t cut it if you’re performing a non-standard or innovative process.

Your business is unique, so the equipment you use should be unique as well. By investing in customized industrial heating equipment, you can implement exactly what you need to ensure that your specialized process runs smoothly.
