Industrial Water Bath Heater are an excellent form of indirect heating, efficiently transferring energy through process media. Temperature ranges for the process media and bath fluid are typically lower than those used in other heaters. Water Bath Heaters can also be used for heating Crude Oil, Vaporizing and superheating LPG & LNG, Regeneration Gas Heating, Heat Transfer Fluids, Heat sensitive gas and fluids, Molten Salt Heaters Direct Fired Reboilers, Amine Reboilers.
The main application for Indirect Fired Water Bath Heaters is to heat high pressure gas prior to pressure reduction, this prevents hydrate formation that can occur because of the temperature drop due to the Joule Thomson effect. The natural gas can also be post heated to suit the operation of gas turbines.A typical water bath heater consists of an insulated shell, removable process coil, removable fire tube, stack burner, gas train and control system.
