Thermal Fluid Heating Systems
Astec 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. Thermal fluid systems use heat transfer fluids such as oils (natural or synthetic), water glycol, or gases as an indirect way to heat another component in the system. We package heaters with a heater (fired or electric) and all the peripheral equipment required for a complete system.
