Pumps for safely handling hot oils
Hot oil systems are designed to store and move heat transfer fluids used for midstream gas process heating. The heat transfer fluid is normally stored in an elevated insulated vessel. Sundyne HMD/Kontro sealless magnetic drive centrifugal pumps are utilized to circulate the heated fluid from the storage tank through an electric process heater, gas fired heater or exhaust heat exchanger. The heat transfer fluid’s elevated temperature is then used to safely heat a process system and is then returned to the storage vessel.
HMD/Kontro Sealless Magnetic Drive Pumps
HMD/Kontro sealless magnetic drive centrifugal pumps have a large temperature range and do not leak, making them a perfect choice for handling heat transfer fluids. Worker and environmental safety are paramount in plants processing harsh chemicals. Metallic construction enables the pumps to effectively handle harsh materials, at a wide range of temperatures. ZeroLoss containment shells increase temperature ranges from -40°C to +150°C, while bolstering the pump’s resistance to thermal shock.
