Immersion Heaters and Oil Flushing

For those in the petrochemical industry, piping is very important. Piping is used to transport liquids and other substances, often at high pressures and temperatures. Contaminants and deposits tend to build up in the piping, which can be dangerous when these corrosive and combustible substances are being transported. Because of this, it’s vital that the piping be cleared of these contaminants and deposits.

A popular way to clear piping of contaminants and deposits is to use the oil flushing process. Oil flushing is a process that helps to remove contaminants and deposits by forcing fast moving and hot fluids through the pipes. This causes the deposits to loosen from the pipes and flushes them out, effectively leaving a clean pipe. Because hot fluids need to be used for the oil flushing process, immersion heaters are vital to this cleaning method. Immersion heaters are submerged into the piping, heating up the fluid, which is then forced through the piping.

The following infographic gives you more information on why you should use oil flushing to clean out your piping. It also gives you tips and hints on choosing the right immersion heater for your oil flush. Continue reading to discover the answers to your oil heating questions.
