Hot Oil & Heat Transfer Skid Packages

With over 100 years of collective expertise, Heat Exchange and Transfer, Inc. excels in the design of hot oil systems and heat transfer skids. Our team of sales engineers tailors heat transfer solutions to meet the unique needs and specifications of each customer, regardless of the project's scale or intricacy.

Hot Oil Packages Defined

A hot oil skid is a specialized device used for regulating temperature in industrial settings. It pumps a heat transfer medium, like thermal fluid or hot oil, within a sealed pipe network. The device heats the oil and directs it to a designated part of the production process, enabling precise temperature control through fluid movement.

Skid-mounted heat sources allow for accurate temperature management for both batch and continuous operation processes. They function at temperatures surpassing 750 degrees Fahrenheit, which is higher than steam with the allure of operating at lower pressure levels, eliminating the need for a boiler operator during safe usage.

For tailor-made hot oil skids or complete heat transfer skid systems, HEAT Inc. stands ready to collaborate with you to design an ideal solution. Contact us to initiate your project immediately!

Types of Heat Transfer Skid Packages

HEAT provides different types of heat transfer systems to meet various requirements. We also offer heat transfer skid packages with various kinds of heat sources.

Electric Heat Source

Electric heaters utilize a resistive element in direct contact with a fluid, ensuring an efficient energy-to-heat conversion for use in manufacturing.

Gas-Fired Heat Source

Gas-fired heaters ignite a flame to warm air, which then heats the fluid via a coil, offering less efficiency but greater energy transfer due to higher temperatures, enabling more significant heat recovery or transfer with smaller transfer areas.

Exchanger Mode Heat Source

Exchanger Mode heating separates the heat source from the fluid, facilitating heat exchange between two circuits. It leverages available plant steam or thermal fluid, optimizing utility use and allowing thermal fluid circulation at varying temperatures for external processes. Various exchanger types, like shell and tube, air-cooled, or plate and frame, enable both heating and cooling.

Direct Inject Heat Source

Direct Inject heating modulates process fluid temperature by injecting an external heat source directly into the circulating fluid, allowing for large temperature differentials and higher flow rates of the thermal fluid, with only a minimal amount of hot external fluid needed to maintain the desired energy levels.

Greater Temperature Control with Exchangers

An exchanger can be used in the design of any hot oil package no matter the heat source. Exchangers are used to add cooling and greater precision over the temperature of the heat transfer medium that the system is pumping to the equipment.
