Why Industries Use Circulation Heaters?

Circulation immersion heaters are especially designed to heat liquids (like heavy fuel, oils, superheated water, water, fluids and fuel oils). As well as thermal heating of gases (such as hydrogen, steam, methane nitrogen etc) at the target temperature. They are available in a huge range according to the needs of different industries. Companies can connect them in a hydraulic series or/and parallel to maximize heating power.

DOUBLE-SKID-WITH-CONTROL-02- Created with high manufacturing standards for specified temperature ( ASME) and pressure, circulation heaters are capable of working at high power (2000 KW) along with monitoring the fluid rate.

Their heater vessel part is stainless steel, making it ideal for fluid characteristics (i.e. corrosion) and its temperature. Their number of spacers and shapes provide maximum heat transfer and allow them to work for all types of industries. There is a separate range of circulation heaters for every industry that help in smooth gas flow or direst heating of fluids.

Below are some of their industrial uses that have supported circulation heaters to satisfy different needs.


Circulation heaters have incredible significance in petrochemical industry for its heating chemical and fluid properties. These heaters types have a huge tube shaped heating component, immersed in the liquid that is required to be heated. These immersion heaters can work for a variety of task, ranging from gasoline refining to chemical processing. A thermostat controls their heating power, so companies can adjust them as they want.

Nuclear Power Plants

Since nuclear power plants work on heat power and always need to have an equipment that can control their temperature, companies install circulation electric heaters to operate in a highly protected as well as sensitive environment. The design of high limit controlling options reduce heat power if it exceeds the target temperature level.

Oil and Gas Industry

Oil and gas industry uses circulation heaters where a circuit of flowing liquid is needed. They are customizable to meet different heat controlling and liquid flowing needs in order to smoothen daily operations. The process starts with flowing liquid at a moderate temperature followed by an insulated circuit to give a power boost for efficient performance.

Apart from their industrial uses, circulation heaters can also work for:

Heated Corrosion

These heaters can smoothly transfer heat to the medium without affecting its surrounding. As they heat fluid in a separate vessel, equipment are always safe from getting any sort of damage. They have incredible corrosive solutions and allow ease in maintenance or replacing its components.

Chemical cleaning

It is one of the most amazing benefits of circulation heaters where, they can easily clean different equipment with certain chemicals. However, companies should have to understand the techniques to use it because every heater has its own way of cleaning. They cannot just start chemical cleaning with any method they know. It needs a lot of care, knowledge and expertise because anything can go wrong and there should be an expert to handle the situation.
