Water Bath Indirect Heater
Mainly used in the oil and gas industry, water bath indirect heaters are utilised to promote uniform heating. This is opposed to a more direct form of heating which can cause hotspots to occur due to the build-up of carbon on direct fire-tube heaters. Water bath indirect heaters are specifically designed to heat gases without the need for a high pressure vessel to be used. The heaters themselves make use of an aqueous solution which is heated by a burner in a combustion chamber. There is a package which comes with all of these indirect heaters from Forain. This includes:
· Fuel gas system
· Electric or pneumatic control and safety systems
The safety of these heaters is paramount, given the environment in which they operate. The safety systems can detect any issues with the system, in all environments, making sure that the outlet gas temperature is as it should be.
