Used after process heating operations, temporary cooling solutions such as cooling towers, chillers and air conditioners provide significant benefits. They allow petrochemical and refining companies to avoid project delays and improve their balance sheet by avoiding high cost capital expenditure (CAPEX) commitments on short- to mid-term duration needs.
Improve your steam heating return on investment by optimizing the cycles of concentration, enabling a higher condensate return. Other strategies include producing higher quality makeup water and implementing remote continuous operation and monitoring.
As a plant operator, you know that equipment at your facility requires maintenance. You undoubtedly know that thermal fluid heaters need a certain amount of maintenance to ensure safe, trouble-free operation and long life.
Heat is required in applications to prevent media freezing or to provide viscosity control in fluids like oil. Heat also can be used to prevent condensation on an electrical control box or a camera lens mounted outdoors.
Traditional high pressure steam boilers serve effectively, but they present safety hazards should a pressure-vessel breach occur. Boiler designs with low water content and on-demand operation hold less water and, therefore, potential for steam flash off.
For many years, the advantages of ultra-low water content, on-demand, high pressure industrial steam boilers have been touted. Features such as a reduced footprint, quick startup and on-demand responsive performance allowed multiple steam boilers to be successfully operated in a modular arrangement.

Used for generating steam for power, processing or space heating, or for producing hot water to heat products or a hot water supply, a boiler delivers steam or hot fluid to the end use point at the desired pressure and temperature.
