THERMAL OIL HEATER
Thermal Oil Heater is a heat-producing machine and functions more as a conductor of heat by using the oil media in a spiral-designed pipe in a heating tube / tank that is designed in such a way that is then heated by a fire sourced from the burner with a particular fuel. The calorie value produced by thermal oil can reach more than 300 ° C.
A heat-producing machine is usually obtained from a heater by using electrical energy. However, because the use of heat energy for the reach of industrial companies / factories required is very large, then thermal oil is a solution. This is based on the consideration of the consumption cost ratio between the cost of electricity and fuel for thermal oil . It is conceivable, how much electricity and the cost that must be incurred by the factory for PLN if the heater uses electricity. Most companies that use thermal energy use a boiler engine. Though not all heat producers must be sourced from a boiler. Many companies require a heat-producing machine to use a boiler, even though they don’t need steam in their production process. Boilers produce hot steam containing a grain of water (saturated steam) with temperatures reaching 180 ° C , while thermal oil only produces hot air reaching 300 ° C or more. This should be taken into consideration, whether to choose thermal oil or a boiler. Thermal oil designed horizontally and there is also a vertical design (standing). The Vertical design saves space and is very efficient while the horizontal design makes it easy to maintain and operate. However, for the size of thermal oil which is quite large, on average it is designed horizontally to facilitate maintenance in the future. Heating Coil is made from Seamless Boiler Tube which is controlled continuously. Each weld joint is examined carefully with the Radiaography Test and the final pressure test using pressures up to 15 – 30 Bar. Thermal oil flows inside the coil at a carefully designed speed to avoid overheating which can cause oil damage due to the formation of coking.
Why choose Thermal Oil Heater ??
Some considerations why you should choose THERMAL OIL HEATER in terms of producing thermal energy, because a Thermal oil heater can produce thermal energy with high temperatures that only work only at pump pressure or even atmospheric pressure. Oil used in thermal oil will not run out and evaporate, unless there is a leak of the oil pipe. If a leak occurs, it must be repaired and replace the wasted oil according to the specified size as in the beginning. The hot gas from the combustion heats the flow of thermal oil in the combustion chamber as radiant heat and then heats the oil in the convection coil through the inter-coil between a certain speed in 3 streams in the opposite direction to the direction of the thermal oil flow. In thermal oil , oil is a heat-conducting media which does not cause crust or dirt in the pipe. so there is no cost to clean oil pipelines that are not normally done in steam boilers. The flame retardant pipe used will not suffer damage due to the heat pipe flowing with a circulation pump, just don’t let the oil temperature go out of control and pass the threshold of the pipe’s ability to receive heat. Therefore, the safety system for the heat supply from the fire burner must always be in good condition. In this case, the Thermocontrol in the control panel and thermocouple must be well integrated so that the possibility of overheating does not occur. The control system on the control panel and the safety control part of the body thermal oil unit must be ensured that the condition and function are running normally. the better the control conditions, the lower the operator’s interval in monitoring the thermal oil unit. Although thermal oil does not operate under high pressure, the pipe specifications must be the pipe standards used for boilers. Boiler pipes have heat resistance and high pressure. In this case, thermal oil must use pipes that are resistant to high temperatures. Thicker boiler pipes, will further reduce the risk of damage to the pipe when receiving heat.
