Gas Fired Thermal Fluid Heaters

GFO Series (Gas Fired) Thermal Fluid Heaters

GFO SERIES HOT OIL SYSTEM

The GFO Series Hot Oil Systems are high capacity, natural gas fired thermal fluid heaters. These systems are commonly used as a central heating source in conjunction with our Satellite Series (SS) units to provide temperature control of multiple, independent process zones. With three heater coil designs, our GFO Series systems have maximum operating temperature of 750⁰F and a heating capacity ranging from 500,000 to 20MM BTU/HR.

HELICAL COIL – 2 PASS DESIGN

This horizontal, two-pass, helical coil offers a simple, low coast, low maintenance design for a thermal fluid heater.  The heater chamber is based on a horizontal center fired burner utilizing radiant heat from the flame on the coil for the first pass.  Hot combustion gases turn back along the outer side of the coil for convective heating on the second pass.  Typical heater efficiency is 80% LHV.  Capacities available for this style design range from 700,000 to 18 MM Btu/hr.

DUAL COIL – 3 PASS DESIGN

This three pass, helical coil design offers very high thermal efficiencies for a compact thermal fluid heater.  The heater chamber is based on a vertical down fired burner, utilizing radiant heating on the first pass and convective heating on the second and third passes.  The large chamber diameter and increased surface area of the dual coil ensure long life of the thermal fluid.  Typical heater efficiency is 90% LHV.  Capacities available for this coil design range from 500,000 to 20 MM Btu/hr.

ISOLATED COIL DESIGN

This multi-pass, nested coil offers high thermal efficiencies and extended coil life for a compact thermal fluid heater.  The isolated combustion chamber eliminates impingement damage to the coil.  Forced draft gases exiting the combustion chamber provide both radiant and convective heating in the coil chamber.  Combustion air is preheated for increased fuel efficiency.  Typical heater efficiency to 85% LHV.  Capacities available for this coil design range from 2.5 MM to 20 MM Btu/hr.
