Industrial uses of thermal oil

Thermal oil boilers


The thermal heating system represents a technological revolution in relation to other conventional systems. The industrial uses of thermal oil provide a wide range of advantages, allowing for advanced heat control systems, far greater performance and economy, which may be adapted to the specific and concrete needs of each industrial activity. The systems which use thermal fluid technology are capable of operating at extremely high temperatures with no need for high operational pressures to maintain the same. This means that thermal oil features many advantages and benefits in relation to efficacy and safety compared with other process heating systems.

Thermal oil avoids the risk of the formation of scaling and corrosion inherent to other thermal systems, providing different options of automatic operations which may help achieve the maximum efficiency of the heating system, at a minimum cost and high levels of safety for your company.

Industrial thermal oil

The industrial thermal oil system operates by means of a combustion chamber through a serpentine coil. The serpentine coil harnesses the energy from the combustion via the oil system pumped at low pressure through which it circulates. The thermal fluid heats the serpentine coil, thereby indirectly transferring the heat to a consumer via a hydraulic circuit. Unlike steam boilers, the thermal oil heating process does not affect the housing of the heater, the helical coil or the tubing, which renders the process far safer and ensures faster and more efficient maintenance.

The thermal oil heating process, be it mineral, synthetic or medicinal, can be used for the specific needs of each industry or company, be it in the petrochemical, food, automotive, timber, or any other sector.

The following factors are always assessed to ensure the procedure is as safe as possible:

  • The system´s comprehensive safety system to ensure the smooth operation of the same
  • The checking of safety limits during each operation
  • A well regulated burner to program the lowest possible emissions
  • Optimisation of the heating loop for maximum temperature control
  • The assignment of highly trained operators and maintenance personnel

The result is an effective, advanced and economical heating system geared to all the industries and sectors which require an efficient indirect heating system which results in greater productivity at a minimum cost, a more effective safety system and greater end product quality, arising from the use of a uniform heating system applied to each product.
