Custom Heaters for Transferring Liquefied Gases for Chemical Processing Applications
(Click image to enlarge)
We were asked by a large liquefied gas equipment manufacturing company to help them design an effective heating source to transfer liquefied gases, such as ammonia, in order to achieve a consistent flow rate and pressure, both for small portable steel containers and very large steel transport vessels with integrated heating systems.
We assisted our customer's engineering staff in order to effectively achieve the correct heat output and temperature measurements for targeted processing goals. The correct design and shape of each heater had to conform to the shape of the vessels and avoid obstacles while maintaining thermal uniformity. We identified the available power source and the power density required to achieve a consistent process rate as well as the multiple integrated thermocouple monitoring needed to insure safety and transfer rate efficiency. We designed heating systems that allowed for redundant temperature monitoring and integrated high limit fail safes in case of electronic equipment failure.
The heating system had to withstand harsh environmental conditions and exposure to possible rough handling by service technicians. We helped our customer create a satisfactory solution for a difficult multifaceted problem.
