Therma-Flite Inc.

Therma-Flite has a long history of screw conveyor technology and auger design, manufacturing equipment for chemical and process industries all over the world. Therma-Flite (then known as Christian Engineering) designed, built and sold the first hollow screw heat exchanger in 1939 for the food industry. After World War II holo screw heat exchangers became more widely used in the chemical and construction industries.

Since these early beginnings, Therma-Flite has continued to develop and re-evaluate the heat exchanger screw conveyor industry. Our processors have lasted longer, processed more, and handled more materials than any other manufacturer in the world. Using different construction materials, varied flight designs, new rotor configurations, diverse heat transfer mediums, and custom designing nearly every project, Therma-Flite has not only set the bar – we have completely re-engineered it.

Thermal Processing Systems manufactured by Therma-Flite can be used for a wide range of applications, including recovery of ash from coal fired power plants, sewage and other waste products, minerals and chemical products or even food products. With the application of heat, the equipment can sterilize food products as well as contaminated soils and sludge. The equipment can remove water from slurry, sludge and filter cakes or separate solvents from polyethylene and other products, both synthetic and natural. This heritage of process diversity brings technology into the market with an emphasis on ease of operation, reliability and economy, and has become a staple of the chemical and construction industries.

Therma-Flite has an established history of developing novel thermal processing equipment for large and small pilot plant projects. If you have a product that has never been processed before, a product that requires special handling, or you need equipment to fit into a constrained environment, we have the capabilities and the ‘know how’ to design the right equipment for you. Our hard working staff is knowledgeable in many different processes and will be happy to discuss how we may help with your next project.

Therma-Flite equipment is manufactured to ASME code issuing the highest standard of design and manufacturing on all equipment produced at our facilities. Our fabrication and assembly facility is located in Benicia California, sandwiched between San Francisco Bay Area and Napa Wine Country
