Thermal Fluid Heating

Thermal fluid heating is a vital part of many manufacturing processes including reactor heating, cooking/frying, gas processing, liquid and gas reheating and many other processes. Thermal oil and thermal fluids can be used for high temperature applications up to 800 F, while glycol and hot water can be used for low temperature processes. Using thermal fluid for process heating has many benefits including being able to be heated to high temperatures, while staying at low pressures. In a majority of processes the thermal fluid stays in a liquid state, unlike steam boilers changing from liquid to vapor.

Thermal Fluid 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 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. Direct from the manufacturer thermal fluid pumps and pump parts as well.
