This is a coil type heater with integrated gas.

The thermal fluid circulates in a coil, heated by the burner flame and its resulting combustion gases.

Output: 360 kW

Fuel: Natural Gas

Operating Principle

Thermal Fluid Heating is based on a similar principle to a simple hot water system. It consists of a heater connected to carbon steel flow and return pipework which can provide heat to one or more users or systems. Instead of water running through that pipework, a thermal fluid – typically specialist mineral oils or synthetic based fluids are suitable – is used as the heat transfer medium. Different fluids can be used to meet specific process heating requirements, making it a very flexible system.

Thermal fluid remains in a liquid phase throughout the complete operation and is able to achieve a temperature of up to 350 °C
The heat is transferred by turbulent liquid flow at the heat transfer surface.
The fluid then passes in a closed circuit back to the Thermal Fluid heater for reheating without further energy loss.

Advantages of Thermal Fluid Heaters

  • Easy Operation
  • No freezing hazard
  • No liquid effluent produced
  • No water treatment or chemicals required
  • Very low maintenance and very long plant life
  • Corrosion free
  • Closed circuit operation – no loss system
  • High combustion and plant efficiency
  • 20% to 50% less energy consumed to transfer the same amount of heat compared with steam
  • Lower total exhaust emissions
  • Very safe
  • Compact and requires no specialist site work, so can be sited close to the user, meaning substantial savings in specialist plant rooms and distribution pipe work
  • Ability to maintain constant temperature control
  • Ability to work at high temperatures (up to 350°C in standard form) in a simple closed loop
  • Cost effective
