The HEATPAC heater is designed mainly for use in the following applications:
Preheating of fuel oil prior to centrifugal separation. Preheating of lube oil prior to centrifual separation.
The heater uses either thermal oil or hot water as a heating medium.
Working principle and design
The HEATPAC heater contains a series of corrugated stainless steel plates mounted together to form channels through which the heating medium and the oil flow in opposite directions. Heat is efficiently transferred from the heating medium to the oil through the corrugated surface of the plates. The media are kept apart in the unit by a brazed seal around the edge of the plates. The contact points of the plates are also brazed to withstand the pressure of the heating medium.
