Heatec specializes in thermal fluid heaters, especially those with helical coils heated by fired burners. They are extremely versatile and used in a wide variety of industries. They are also known as hot oil heaters. Oil and gas producers know them as HMO (Heat Medium Oil) heaters.
Our process heaters are designed to directly heat a fluid product as it flows through the heater. The product may be liquid or gas. Process heaters heat products directly whereas thermal fluid heaters heat media (thermal fluid) that in turn heats products or other equipment indirectly
Convectec™ is the brand name for our all-convection heaters. We designed these heaters to heat materials that are sensitive to overheating due to high film temperatures. The heater avoids high film temperatures by exposing its heating coils only to heat energy borne in convection gases.
This type of heater is used in a variety of industries, including the food, chemical, petrochemical and petroleum industries. It can be used either for liquid or vapor-phase heating.
Heatec manufactures three basic types of water heaters for a wide variety of industrial uses. They have burners that are gas fired. Special versions are available with burners that operate on diesel fuel. Firestorm® is the brand name of our most popular water heater. It is a direct contact water heater that heats water on demand and provides a continuous supply of instant hot water at a constant temperature.
We offer a variety of electric heaters. They use resistive heating elements heated by electric current. Some versions are used to heat thermal fluid systems that heat other equipment. They can also be used to heat other liquids or for process heating.
