Hazardous Area Heating Solutions

Freezing at natural gas regulating sites and on pipelines can lead to measurement errors, instrumentation failures, hydrate formation, and equipment damage, resulting in a significant impact on the profitability of the operation.

CCI Thermal Technologies Logo

NECI has partnered with CCI Thermal Technologies, Inc. to deliver Cata-Dyne™ infrared gas catalytic heaters, enclosures, pipeline systems, and accessories.

With over 40 years’ experience, Cata-Dyne™ is truly the benchmark in innovation for space and spot heating applications in both hazardous and non-hazardous environments. Cata-Dyne™ products provide heat using infrared radiant heat transfer, eliminating the use of burners, glycol fluid and high maintenance heat exchange systems.

LH & Micro Line Heaters

The Cata-Dyne™ LH Line Heater prevents equipment freezing and hydrate formation during pressure reduction at natural gas regulating sites.
