Bath Heaters

Customized Solutions. Options for Low NOx & Low Noise Applications.

Water Bath Heaters

Water bath heaters are typically used in the following applications:

  • High pressure gas and oil in oil or gas production
  • Produced gas in gathering lines to prevent stoppage due to hydrate formation
  • Fuel gas at city gate stations or take-off from the main transmission pipelines upstream of regulation
  • High viscosity oils to reduce pumping pressures and to increase pipeline capacities
  • Superheat light hydrocarbon liquids (propane) for alternate or standby fuel
  • Light hydrocarbon liquids for stabilization or turbo-expansion
  • Fuel gas conditioning for turbine power generation, +50°F superheat

ETI designs and fabricates water bath heaters from 24” to 138” diameter for the oil, gas, gas storage, gas transmission and utility industries.  The ETI units can be customized with the following options:

  • Natural Draft or Forced Draft Burners
  • Bath or Process Temperature Control
  • Blending Valve Skids for Process Control
  • Pneumatic or Electronic Burner Management
  • Natural Gas, Propane, Fuel Oil Burners
  • High Efficiency Firetube Designs
  • Low Noise Burners/Sound Enclosures
  • Skid-Mounted Modules
  • High Pressure Coil Designs
  • Vertical and Horizontal Thermal Expansion Tanks
  • Clean Burning Technology – Low NOx and Low CO Burners

Salt Bath Heaters

As an alternative to hot oil medium heaters, ETI provides high-temperature heating systems for regeneration gas systems requiring gas heated to 450° to 700°F. The most common indirect heating system employees a molten eutectic salt mixture with a melting point of 288oFand is referred to as “Salt Bath Heater.” It utilizes conventional “U”-Tube firetubes to keep the salt molten. It is a convenient way to heat the regeneration gas stream indirectly to regenerate Molesieve or Silica gel adsorbents (dry bed adsorbents).
