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.
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.
Engineering and Site Services
Thermal Process Development can provide on site process support for thermal fluid systems including safety reviews, energy efficiency audits, process improvements and troubleshooting thermal fluid system operation problems. Having trouble reaching required process thermal fluid temperatures, flow issues or constantly repairing thermal fluid pumps and system devices, let TPD help save you money, maintenance costs and plant downtime.
