Heatec Warm Oil Skid

Overview

The warm oil skid diverts some of the oil from the main supply line of the hot oil system (thermal fluid system). It blends that oil with cooler return oil in order to lower its temperature for heating waste oil tanks and other components that need lower temperatures.

The skid is connected to the main supply and return lines. It has pumps that circulate hot oil in independent circuits. Having independent circuits provides maximum flexibility and ease of control. The system incorporates a 3-way modulating valve that provides precise temperature control and minimizes temperature overshoot.

Hot oil circulating in these circuits is maintained at a different temperature than the main lines. These circuits can heat the asphalt piping and pumps for asphalt storage tanks, asphalt piping and pumps for tank cars and hot box, polymer blending system, waste oil storage tanks.

Warm oil skids are commonly found at asphalt terminals and roofing products manufacturing plants.
