It is the superior alternative to old-style chamber or direct fired heaters. Designed with efficient sections of coil, the Hot Oil Heat Exchanger provides up to 200% more surface area than convection heaters.
Return oil from the asphalt plant enters the system through an air/oil separator that feeds the positive displacement pump. The Hot Oil Heat Exchanger is available as a standard in units rated at 500,000 to 4 million BTUs. Custom designed heaters are available for up to 85 million BTU for A.C. tank farms, A.C. terminals, or other speciality heating requirements.
As the need for storage of more grades of liquid A.C. has become a reality, the need for increased heater capacity and flexibility has increased. The very efficient Hot Oil Heat Exchanger is custom sized for each plant application.
