Liquid and Gas Fuel Fired Hot Oil Boilers are heating equipment used to fulfill heating requirements in industrial facilities, large buildings, and energy production. These boilers produce high-temperature heat using liquid fuels (such as diesel or fuel oil) or gas fuels (such as natural gas or propane). This heat is stored within hot oil (thermal oil or heat transfer oil). The generated heat is then transferred to heat transfer systems within the facility.
Fuel Feeding: Liquid or gas fuel is transported into the boiler through specialized fuel feeding systems or direct connections. These fuels are introduced into the combustion chamber or combustion unit of the boiler, where they undergo the combustion process.
Combustion Chamber or Combustion Unit: Liquid or gas fuels undergo combustion in the combustion chamber or specialized combustion unit. During combustion, the byproducts of combustion (heat and exhaust gases) are generated.
Heat Transfer: The high temperature and energy produced during combustion are transferred to thermal oil through pipes circulating within the hot oil boiler. The hot oil absorbs and carries this heat.
Heat Storage and Distribution: The thermal oil present within the hot oil boiler maintains its high temperature and stores the absorbed heat. This hot oil is then transferred to systems or processes within the facility to meet energy needs. Heat transfer typically occurs through heat exchangers or steam generation systems.
