Oil indirect water/glycol bath heaters
Before being transported or before being sent to oil desalters, crude oil commonly needs to be heated. A higher oil temperature reduces oil viscosity, thus permitting fine separation and easing treatment processes or allowing an easier transportation afterwards.
Pietro Fiorentini proposes oil indirect water/glycol bath heaters: compact and cost-effective solutions with an indirect fired bath heater. Process fluid is heated through a coil/bundle exchanger immersed in a water/glycol bath which is heated by the flue gases that are generated by the combustion system. The generated heat is transferred to the bath by means of a high temperature firetube (radiant section) and a return smoketube (convection section) that maximises the heat efficiency.
