Thermal Fluid Systems, Inc.
Also known as hot oil (or sometimes Dowtherm) systems, these are industrial heating systems wherein a special heat transfer liquid is recirculated by a pump through a fired (or electric) heat exchanger where the temperature is raised for use in heating various processes. (read more)
Gas, oil or waste fuel-fired thermal fluid ("hot oil") heating systems provide high efficiency and low pressure operation for temperatures up to 750°F (399°C). Standard designs come in both horizontal and vertical configuration ranging from 500,000 to 50 MM BTU/hr. (read more)
Thermal fluids degrade over time by the breakdown of hydrocarbons and oxidation that can cause particulates that may deposit in the heater, valves, pumps, and other system components. The TFSS filtration system continuously removes these particulates down to 10 micron size and prolongs the system and fluid life, reduces maintenance and avoids operating failures (read more)
TFS can engineer and supply specialized skid mounted units that incorporate stringent controls and redundant safeties to produce steam with an unfired heat exchanger at the volume and pressure needed for your application. In most states, the use of an unfired system such as this eliminates the requirement for a boiler operator. (read more)
TFS engineers, designs and fabricates specialized heating and cooling skids that incorporate stringent controls with your current production. Our application engineers can assist with the complete integration of accurate temperature and flow controls with your production requirements to existing DCS or DCIS system. (read more)
The API Heater / Standard 560 are crude oil heaters engineered for refineries and oil production facilities globally. Heat absorption duties range from 20 to 380 MM BTU/hr. The designs represent heater styles that include multi-zone horizontal cabins, vertical cylindricals, and convection boxes. (read more)
Electric thermal fluid ("hot oil") heating systems provide high efficiency and low pressure operation for temperatures up to 750°F (399°C). Electric heaters can be used for small capacity applications and where a fuel supply is not available ranging in size from 50 kW to 5+ MW. (read more)
