Heat Transfer Fluid Systems

Heat Transfer Fluid Systems

Abstract

The Heat Transfer Fluid Systems designed by Fluor include liquid phase heating and cooling, vapor phase heating, and combination liquid and vapor systems. The operating temperatures have varied from read sub-zero for cooling or greater than 700°F for heating applications. Since many batch and semi-batch processes require both heating and cooling in the same equipment, such as jacketed reactors, Fluor has designed many heat transfer systems involving a single heat transfer fluid but with multiple temperature levels for heating and cooling. Where control of process temperature was critical, Fluor designed systems to operate in temperature ranges as close as ±1°F.

Client Benefits

Unit operations in specialty chemical or batch processes are typically more complex and require a high level of knowledge and experience. Fluor's extensive experience in designing and simulating systems for specialty chemical processes allow Fluor to predict the behavior of a process and simulate actual plant behavior, resulting in better designs to meet Client specifications.
