ThermalEx and ThermaLoad heaters and load banks are already in use across a number of gas processing facilities, compression stations and remote sites throughout the country, including the Dampier Bunbury Pipeline, the Moomba Gas Fields, the Gorgon Project and the Gladstone LNG Project.

Thermal Electric designs and manufactures all of its products in-house to provide the most efficient, fit-for-task solution, eliminating a lot of the issues experienced with off-the-shelf generic designs.


Thermal Electric’s ThermalEx range is certified to both the IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres (IECEx) and Equipment for Explosive Atmospheres (ATEX) standards for hazardous areas. This ensures the highest safety and quality standards and gives customers peace of mind and insurance against ignition dangers while operating in hazardous areas.

Electric heating is vastly superior to gas-powered heating when accurate temperatures are required to maintain warranty on gas turbines, for instance. The power consistency and quality of Thermal Electric’s electric heaters provide cost-efficient and optimised heat for various applications.

The ThermalEx certified range is constantly expanding and includes a variety of products including:

  • Knockout drum heaters;
  • Fuel gas heaters;
  • Glycol reboilers;
  • Seal gas heaters;
  • Natural gas heaters; and,
  • Much more.


Thermal Electric’s ThermaLoad range of resistive load banks and braking resistors are used across a wide range of industries for generator load testing, dummy loads to ensure generators are running at optimal capacity, battery testing and more.

As with all of the company’s products, ThermaLoad load banks are designed and manufactured fit-for-task and optimised for specific applications, offering a host of extras like touchscreen controllers, trailer or container mounting, auto or manual control, remote operation, USB data logging and more.

Thermal Electric is an Australian-based manufacturer of tubular electric heating elements for both industrial and commercial applications.
