The OMV Thermal Fluid Heaters are our direct fired thermal fluid heaters. A direct
fired thermal fluid heater imparts its thermal energy directly into the process
fluid, in this case thermal oil. The OMV utilizes a helical coil design with up
to 4 concentric coils, containing up to 7 pipes in parallel. There is an extended
convective section that continues the heat transfer process, gradually exchanging
heat, while reducing thermal stresses in the heater structure.
The OMV has also been designed to be supplied with a variety of forced draft burners,
provided by some of the world’s leading burner manufactures. This allows us to
utilize a variety of fuels, meet stringent emissions requirements, and even allow
our customers the opportunity to select the burner of their choice.
The OMV can be supplied in either a horizontal or vertical configuration, dependent
upon the customer's requirements. The horizontal orientation is the most common
configuration due to its ease of access to the burner and heater coils. The vertical
orientation is the best option when it comes to optimizing facility floor space.
The OMV-PA is our high efficiency option of the OMV Thermal Fluid Heater. The
OMV-PA is constructed in a vertical orientation and is supplied with a combustion
air preheater alongside the heater. The simple addition of the combustion air preheater
can increase the efficiency of the heaters to upwards of 92%.
The OMV and OMV-PA Thermal Fluid Heaters’ are designed and constructed to various
local code requirements around the world. The most common codes are ASME with National
Board registration for the United States, CRN for Canada, and CE/PED/TUV/DIN for
Europe. Additional code requirements may be met if necessary.
Package and containerized systems are available for both the OMV and OMV-PA Thermal
Fluid Heaters. These package systems can be customized to meet each of our customer's
needs, including but not limited to: pump skids, expansion tanks, drain tanks,
pipe spools, tank towers, ladders and platforms, and ancillary components.
