The jacket is welded to the pump covering all wetted parts and the heating medium is circulated within the Heating Jacket in order to maintain the temperature of the pump. This is essential for use with products that will solidify at lower temperatures, or for those liquids that must be kept at a constant temperature.
A Heating Jacket can be used to melt a product that has solidified within a pump before the pump begins operating again, which will protect the pump and its mechanical seals from damage.
The choice of the pump to be fitted with a Heating Jacket is decided by budget, flow rate, the pressure required for the chosen application and the installation the pump will be fitted to, as well as whether an electrically driven or air driven pump is required by the customer.

- Sanitary Air-Operated Diaphragm Pumps

One example where a Heating Jacket would be used is for companies pumping chocolate, the temperature of the chocolate needs to be maintained in order to avoid solidifying.
A Heating Jacket can also be used to maintain a cooler temperature of a fluid, for example, Petroleum products like aviation fuels need to be kept cooler than their flashpoint. Another example might be in the Food Industry, when some food products are heated up too much, the rheology of the fluid can change which can affect the taste, these products will need to have their temperature monitored with a Heating Jacket.
The jacket is a handy accessory for also protecting your pump from damage as it can melt product that has solidified inside the pump from the previous action before it begins operateing again.
The Heating Jacket covers all wetted parts of the pump and is welded to the pumps. The medium that maintains the temperature (water/steam/electrically powered) within the Heating Jacket is circulated around the wetted parts of the pump.
