Thermic Fluid Heaters: Fluidtherm
What are Thermic Fluid Heaters?
“Thermic Fluid Heaters are heating equipment, used in industry where heat transfers are primary need of process instead of pressure.”
Thermic Fluid Heaters are most efficient and highly effective equipment used in process heating which uses high viscous oil as a heating medium.
Thermic fluid heating system generally used in a system where the pressure is not desired in a process and temperature requirement is higher and using the boiler for high-temperature services may increase the cost of a project.
Thermic Fluid Heaters can improve process consistency and reduce downtime leading to a further increase in profitability.

Thermic Fluid Heater Working & Design
Fluidtherm Construction Design
Fluidtherm, Thermic fluid heater, consists of two concentric coils in which inner coil acts as a radiation zone and outer coil act as a convection zone.
Flue gas velocity is generally higher between the 2 coils and between the coil and the outer shell, so higher the velocity higher will be the convective heat transfer between the flue gas and fluid.
Thermic fluid heaters can be made either 3 pass or 4 pass depending on the design of thermic fluid heater and the type of fuels to be burnt. The efficiency of the heater increases with an increase in the number of passes.
Working Process of Thermic Fluid Heaters
The maximum temperature of 350℃ of thermal fluid can be achieved in a Fluidtherm although the higher temperature of the thermal fluid can be achieved provided the temperature of fluid does not exceed the auto-ignition temperature.
Thermodyne, Fluidtherm – thermic fluid heater also consists of a deaerator and expansion tank. The density of fluid decreases with increase in the temperature of fluid so a tank is generally installed in a process to help accommodate the extra volume of fluid which is increased due to increase in the fluid temperature. For every 100℃ rise in the fluid temperature, the volume of fluid increases by 7% so expansion tank is added to take care of that extra volume.
Deaerator tank is combined with the expansion tank and is generally used to vent out air from the fluid which acts as resistance in transferring heat to the fluid.
Industrial Thermic Fluid Heater Fuels
Fluidtherm, Thermic heating system made by thermodyne, can be used to burn the different type of fuels such as:-
Solid Fuels: Wood, Coal, Petcoke, Rice husk, etc.
Liquid Fuels: Light Diesel Oils, Heavy Oils, etc.
Gaseous Fuels: Natural Gas, Liquefied Petroleum Gas, etc.
