Hot oil systems provide significant advantages in almost every category. Efficiency Thermal fluid heater manufacturers indicate that efficiencies can be as much as 5% to 8% higher than conventional steam systems. Hot-oil heated shell-and-tube steam generators can provide increased efficiency as well.
American Heating Company is the acknowledged leader in the technology of packaged thermal fluid heaters. We are proud to be the only heater company in this market to offer a serpentine radiant coil unit as the standard in our industrial thermal fluid heater design.
With thermal fluid heaters, the efficiency is known to be higher than with conventional steam systems.Flash losses in a typical steam system can be 6% to 14%. Add to that blowdown losses up to 3% and de-aerator losses of 2%.
Thermal fluid heating is a type of indirect heating in which a liquid phase heat transfer medium is heated and circulated to one or more heat energy users within a closed loop system. Thermal oil, glycol, and water are common heat transfer mediums for these systems.
Thermal fluid ("hot oil") heating systems are used in many industrial applications where efficiency and accurate temperature control between 300° F and 750° F are required. TFS has many years' experience in this field and we offer a broad range of products, service and support.
