Thermal Fluid Heaters

A thermal fluid heater is a vital part of many manufacturing processes including reactor heating, cooking/frying, gas processing, liquid and gas reheating and many other processes. A thermal fluid heater is sometimes called a hot oil heater or hot oil boiler. Thermal oil and thermal fluids can be used for high temperature applications up to 750 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 heat the fluid to high temperatures, while staying at low pressures. In a majority of processes the thermal fluid stays in a liquid state, unlike in steam boilers where the fluid changes from liquid to vapor.

Quick Resources

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 designs for specific plant requirements. Thermal fluid heating is available with gas and oil burners, electric heating or even as heat recovery thermal oil units (HRTO).


Thermal Expansion Tanks and Pumps


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

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.
