Tank Heating and cooling jacket
Heating, cooling, or maintaining the temperature of an existing tank is easy with Laser Plates. Using Laser Plates saves the cost of building a new tank, makes the heat exchanger easy to take off and replace, and can be easily placed anywhere on the tank. 

Omega Thermo Products makes single-embossed and double-embossed clamp-on plates depending on your needs.

How does a Clamp-on work? 

Based on your data, we can calculate the required capacity to cool the existing tank or to heat it to the desired temperature.

Our tank clamp-on jackets are first welded as a flat Laser Plate, after which we roll and inflate them in the desired shape. You will receive the tank heating and cooling jacket finished with the right connections and isolations. All you need to do is mount it on your tank.

In most cases, Omega tank clamp-on jackets are double embossed. There are pillows on both sides of the jacket. By using heat transfer mastic, the clamp-on jacket fits up to your tank and the mastic fills in the air gap left by the pillowed shape.

Single embossed tank clamp-on jacket 

Single embossed clamp-ons are used in high-temperature applications because a hardening mastic is needed to operate in higher temperatures.


  • Easy to change
  • The old tank does not have to be replaced
  • No need for welding on the existing tank
  • Heating or cooling is physically separated from the tank containing the product so there is no cross contamination
  • Exact product placement for where the tank needs to be heated or cooled
  • The low volume of the clamp-on plates allows you to easily control the temperature of the tank or reactor

Examples of industries where our clamp-on jackets are used are:

Chemical industries where heat exchangers are interchangeable for potential standstill

  • For cooling of existing dairy tanks
  • For heating of seal, purge and flush drum of Heavy Vacuum Gas Oil (HVGO)
  • For heating of transfer oil drum
  • For heating of Acetic Acid
  • For heating of Butyl Acrylate
  • For heating of Polyethylene tanks
  • For heating of existing screw conveyors
  • For heating of Styrene-butadiene tanks
