To maintain a fluid storage (large volume) at temperature, or to raise it to temperature after loading, a multitubular heater is a suitable solution, particularly if the hot fluid is water vapor.
Quiri, as a specialist of heat exchangers
, can provide you a process fluids reheater.
Equipment delivered in France in 2015 on behalf of a company specialised in the lube oil additives.
This heat exchanger
is part of a set of 2 exchangers installed in order to heat a polymer in a full tank of 2400 m3
from 80 to 100°C in 30 hours.
In order to design this exchanger as best as possible, a thermal study has been performed taking into account the heat losses of the tank, those of the process fluid as well as those of the line of production
The thermal design was carried out in order to heat the whole quantity of polymer of the tank in a maximum time of 30 hours.
To do so, we have designed a shell & tube heat exchanger which heats the polymer in one pass in the sequence from 80 to 140 ° C at the start of the sequence and from 100 to 146 ° C at the end of the sequence.
The function of this shell & Tube exchanger
is to heat a process fluid from steam coming from the line within the plant.
The heat exchanger
, of Quiri thermal design, condenses the steam on the tube side and supplies and heats the polymer on the shell side, which is reinjected into the tank after being reheated in the exchanger.
