Since we began manufacturing industrial boilers of thermal oil at INNERGY 50 years ago, this thermal fluid has not stopped evolving and specializing, offering users considerable advantages in its different applications, compared to other heat transfer media. These improvements not only affect the technical and operational part, but also the economic and profitability of the plant.
Industrial boilers of thermal oil allow you to take advantage of the heat generated from the use, both of biomass and conventional fuels, and transfer it to thermal oil. The flame that originates in the combustion process, and is housed in the furnace, allows you to heat the thermal oil circulating inside the coils, which not only have to be designed with adequate quality to withstand high temperatures, but also with a dimensioning that allows the optimum speed, which will guarantee a long service life, both for the industrial boiler and for the thermal oil. It is precisely the configuration of water tube coils that is the most recommended for this type of thermal oil heating process, because it is ideal to avoid excessive oil degradation, as it not only speeds up the start and stop processes but also avoids the evaporation process instantaneous, among other problems and deteriorations.
TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES OF THERMAL OIL
ADVANTAGES OF THERMAL OIL OPERATION
There is a large number of varieties of thermal oil, each of them recommended for one type of process or several, depending on certain specifications such as working temperature.
The heating system by thermal oil, whether mineral, synthetic or medicinal, allows its use applied to the specific needs of each industry or company. Whether it is the petrochemical, food, automotive, wood or any other type, it is necessary to consult the types of thermal oil to choose the one that contributes to the greater efficiency of the process.
As we have seen so far, the thermal oil offers advanced heat control systems, a performance and savings much greater than other heat transfer media, and also the ability to adapt to the specific and specific needs of each industrial activity.
In order for the procedure to be as safe as possible and effective in each of the applications and industries, the following variables must be evaluated in all cases:
Throughout this article we have been able to verify the advantages and applications that the thermal oil presents for a great variety of industrial sectors, from the chemical and pharmaceutical industry to the automobile industry, as well as other industries such as asphalt, hotel, food, water treatment, naval, etc.
In closing, it is important to emphasize the importance of choosing the type of oil suitable for the system/application process and without only considering the costs, since in the end, the bad choice of thermal fluid can lead to a premature deterioration, not only of oil, but also of the equipment through which it circulates.
Finally, we recommend carrying out an annual analysis, as a means of guaranteeing the optimum condition of the oil, only in this way is it possible to ensure the quality of the processes and the high performance of the plant.
