Thermal oil boilers are designed to work with the three types of fuels: fossil, biomass and non-conventional fuels.
This type of boilers have important advantages compared to conventional steam equipment:
The oil does not need any treatment and allows to obtain performances of more than 85% for biomass boilers or greater than 90% for fossil fuel boilers (with the use of gas / air economizers).
Thermal oil boilers do not need a boiler room or a boiler operator, reducing costs considerably.
The oil acts as a lubricating fluid and its properties allow no corrosion in the installations, which means less maintenance of the installation.
These types of boilers work at very low pressures, which increases safety and reduces the risk of explosions by working at high pressures.
Fuels: Fossil / biomass / unconventional fuels
Power: Up to 50MW
Design: Coils and oil preheaters of cross flow
Max. Service: Up to 395 ºC in HTF
Location: Vertical / horizontal
Construction methods: AD-2000 / ASME
Boilers with one to three smoke stages.
Coils connection in series without temperature mixtures: Allows an exact control of circulating thermal oil flow through the inner part of the boiler.
Collector cooled by the fluid itself which avoids the assembly of refractory material. Thus, minimal maintenance is guaranteed inside the boiler of all the parts subjected to radiation. This type of collector also prevents, in the event of stoppage of the pump, that the oil inside the boiler degrades when receiving an additional energy input from the refractory mass.
