The THM HydroFlux heater line is the high quality solution for customers that desire more than an “off the shelf” product. The HydroFlux line, similar to our other heaters, are custom engineered for your specific application using a set of pre-designed models as the base, and include both indirect fired (with a coil) and direct fired (without a coil) options. With duties ranging from 0.25 MMBtu/hr to 30 MMBtu/hr, there is a HydroFlux heater that can meet your project needs.
HydroFlux Indirect Fired Heaters
Hydroflux heaters (also known as “bath heaters”) have been used in gas plants, pipelines, power plants, gas storage and transmission, and other applications. Typical services for HydroFlux Indirect Fired (IF) heaters include:
- Line heater (for natural gas)
- Crude oil heater
- Fuel gas heating
- Gas vaporization
- Gas dew point heating
- Condensate stabilizing
This type of heater can be designed using bath mediums that help meet your specific project needs. Common bath mediums include:
- Hot oil
HydroFlux Direct Fired Heaters
Similar to our HydroFlux IF, the DF (or Direct Fired) model does not contain the process coil, and is used to heat fluids directly. Inside the heater, a weir is designed, along with level controls, to ensure that the firetube never goes dry. This model is used regularly in applications such as amine or glycol (TEG) reboilers, along with asphalt or tank heating.
THM utilizes API 12K as a guiding design standard for most applications. These guidelines have been used for industrial heater applications for more than 40 years and ensure the heater is designed to meet the latest industry standards.
THM offers a variety of burner options for the HydroFlux heaters, including both natural and forced draft burners. We also have a selection of burners that help you meet your emissions requirements, whether that means ultra-low NOx or standard emissions levels.
The HydroFlux IF (indirect fired) heaters include a custom designed process coil to meet your heater and hydraulic needs. This process coil can be designed to be fully removable if desired. Process coils can also be made using various metallurgies based on your specific project.
