Whether maintaining pipe temperatures in a petrochemical plant on the Gulf of Mexico or a platform off the windswept Scottish coast, facility managers are all too familiar with the challenges such a task poses.
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.
The company’s sanitary inline steam heater is a smaller diameter version of its direct steam heater. It can be used effectively for heating liquids as well as the cooking process when heavy, viscous slurries are involved.
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.
