Heat transfer fluid for chemical processing
Chemical engineers may require heat transfer for indirect heating of:
- process liquids and polymers
- single fluid batch processing
- pipeline tracing
- energy recovering
- low pressure cogeneration
- drying and heating of bulk materials
- gas processing.
These chemical reactions often occur at high temperatures, which must be maintained for prolonged periods. To safely and efficiently complete chemical processing at these temperatures, manufacturers can use either steam or thermal fluid.
