Biodiesel distillation is rapidly becoming more popular as new applications of producing biodiesel are being discovered. The high temperatures needed to distill biodiesel can be difficult to obtain, but a thermal fluid heater can safely and reliably provide these temperatures during the process. Thermal Process Development uses a dual helical coil design to maximize efficiency in heat transfer and designs heaters with very low pressure drops to provide you with an efficient and safe option for your biodiesel processing.

Quick Resources

Hot Oil Heaters

Thermal fluid heaters have several names including thermal oil heater, thermic heater, thermal oil boiler, hot oil heater, glycol heater and others. Thermal Process Development can offer high quality thermal fluid heaters with our standard high efficiency designs or customizable to plant requirements.  Thermal fluid heating is available with gas and oil burners, electric or even as heat recovery thermal oil units (HRTO)

Thermal Expansion Tanks and Pumps

Thermal fluid expansion tanks and degassing systems are important for maintaining long oil life as well as lowering the maintenance costs on the thermal oil heater, pumps and process equipment. Thermal Process Development can provide an expansion tank, degassing tank system or help design a complete new system. Thermal fluid pumps and pump skids can also be provided.
