The demand for process heating and temperature control in the industry continues to increase as manufacturers and industrial facilities grow, expand, and seek to improve their existing operations. These process heating systems must perform consistently, safely, and with minimal downtime over time. Industrial facilities that use plant-wide distributed process systems typically have one of two process systems: steam boilers or thermal fluid heating systems. Boilers were often the default choice in the past, but thermal fluid heating systems are a better solution for many applications, offering improved flexibility, control, and reliability.

Dpstar’s Thermal oil heating system are developed and designed especially for demanding process heating operations where no compromise on quality are accepted and where reliability is the key word. The heater solutions from Dpstar are not characterized by low purchase price – but instead low over-all costs including low maintenance and operational costs, and long life-times.

Thermal Oil Heating System

Thermal oils or heat transfer fluids are widely used to carry thermal energy in process heating, metal working and machine cooling applications. They are mainly used in high temperature process applications where the optimum bulk fluid operating temperatures of between 150ºC and 400ºC. They are safer and more efficient than steam, electrical, or direct fire heating methods. When it comes to industrial heating, hot oil heaters are a better option when it comes to industrial heating in almost every case.

Operating a hot oil heat transfer fluid system can be easy if you understand the components of a system, how to start-up & shutdown the system properly and general operational procedures. Some other things that you need to know are how to drain your hot oil system, how to recharge the system and the proper start-up procedure after recharging with new heat transfer fluid.

The cost and production efficiency of such plants is paramount with interruptions or inefficient production leading to a reduction in overall output relative to increased production costs. The maintenance of a Thermal fluid system central to maintaining plant operation and also ensuring the longevity and safety of the overall plant. In every day practice, the condition of a thermal fluid is assessed routinely and is an indirect measure of the condition and safety of the plant itself.

  • Hot Oil Heating Systems Require Less Capital Than Steam Systems
  • Hot Oil Heating is Safer Than Steam
  • Thermal Heating Fluid Will Not Freeze

Advantages of Thermal Oil Heating System

There are numerous advantages to using hot oil heating systems, the foremost of which is their ability to control the temperatures of other fluids used in processing indirectly. This power to change certain temperature aspects is especially important in systems requiring finely tuned temperature control. The fact that the thermal system operates by heating fluids also gives it the capability to precisely time heating for the end user target. Also, thermal systems can maintain high temperatures for extended durations, while at the same time operating at low pressures. This low-pressure operation significantly increases the level of safety for those working near the unit. Furthermore, these systems are known for being very reliable due to their simplistic, rugged design. The longevity of the system can help industrial companies save a lot of money because they won’t have to replace the unit after a few years, as is the case with other similar competitive systems. This means that thermal oil has many advantages and benefits in terms of efficiency and safety over other process heating systems.

Types of Thermal Oil Heater

Thermal oil heating systems are ideal for facilities that need to consistently achieve high temperatures. Oil-based systems go by many names, but they all refer to the same type of closed-loop oil-based heating system. Other common names include:

  • Hot oil boiler
  • Hot oil heater
  • Hot oil system
  • Thermal fluid heater
  • Thermal fluid system
  • Thermal oil boiler
  • Thermal oil heater
  • Thermal oil system

Design of Thermal Oil Heating System

Dpstar is specializes in designing thermal fluid heating systems tailored to specific applications and facilities. Our full system configuration services include:

  • Electrical heated
  • Flue gas heated
  • Steam heated
  • Combination of heat sources

The applications in which a thermal oil heating can be used are nearly endless. Some of the most widely used applications including heating of fryers, process re boilers, and convection ovens. Often an electric heating system is preferred because it does not have any harmful emissions—such as carbon dioxide or nitrous oxide—which are common byproducts when using coal-generated heat. Therefore, they are much safer and very efficient as well.
