Reduction in operating costs
Due to the constant removal of the light-ends, you can use your thermal oil for a longer time, without system downtime by boiling out the light-ends and thus saving money and time
Light-ends are continuously generated in thermal oil systems depending on the operating temperature. Basically: The higher the operating temperature, the more light-ends are formed. If the light-ends content increases, the flashpoint of the thermal oil decreases. The lifetime of the thermal oil thereby decreases rapidly over time.
Most of the light-ends are generated in the hot supply line, in the heater, and to a lesser extent in the cooler return line. For typical thermal oil heating systems with mineral oil and a supply line temperature of 280 °C, the decomposition rate is 3.5% per year. For 30,000 l of thermal oil this amounts to 1,000 l per year! The light-ends removal system can be integrated modularly and in a size adapted to your system up to 250,000 liters volume.
