Lo-Density CLHR automatically provides precise temperature and viscosity control of heavy oils for efficient, steady delivery from the pump to the burner. Viscosity is the primary concern for producers who burn heavy or used fuel oil in their plants. These oils become virtually impossible to pump at low ambient temperatures. Correct viscosity also provides proper atomization at the burner nozzle and clean burning of the oil. Preheating heavy oil reduces its viscosity, allowing the heavier oils to move smoothly to the burner. The inline heaters are fully automatic, easy to control and, due to their removable drywell tubes, easy to clean, according to the manufacturer. Benefits for asphalt producers include lower operating costs, improved product quality, reduced maintenance, significantly longer heater life and enhanced sustainability.
