Indirect Water Bath Heater

This project was for the design, construction and supply of an Indirect Fired Water Bath Heater. (Water-Glycol) heaters are an excellent method of indirect heating, efficiently transferring energy through process media. Temperature ranges for the process media and bath fluid are typically lower than those used in other heaters.

We included provision for the skid base to be levelled on a gravel/pebble stone grade and to permit the entire assembled skid to be safely transported around site by an all-terrain fork lift truck.

Our work scope also included supply of a comprehensive QA documentation package supported by our design calculations to demonstrate fit for purpose, material traceability, weld/NDE maps including weld procedures, qualifications, NDE reports and hydro test certification etc. Works was carried out in accordance with ANSI B31.3 and we also demonstrated strict compliance to the PED requirements.

Our in house design team made all necessary design checks to identify expected pipe stresses to ensure process dynamics including any potential shock loadings in operation, Joules Thompson chilling and any jet reaction were known.

Third party verification of the above system was undertaken by our approval Authority (Royal Sun Alliance).
