Indirect Heaters

Overview Advantages

Fully mobile, high-pressure indirect heater for severe applications

Heaters are used in almost every phase of oil production and processing.  In gas applications, where lower flowing or ambient temperatures are present, production challenges exist when a pressure differential is anticipated. These conditions can lead to the formation of hydrates, which can cause damage to equipment and lower overall separation efficiency. In these cases, Cameron recommends the use of an indirect heater to raise the inlet process temperature and control the pressure drop prior to separation.

When flowback, well testing, or early production applications dictate the use of an indirect heater, the Cameron split, removable coil design provides an alternative to the use of chemical injection into the process stream, eliminating associated logistics and risk.

Having process coils rated up to 15,000 psi on some systems and the ability to heat up to 2.0 million Btu/h, our indirect heater features a burner management system to control the electronic ignition source, industry standard safety devices such as flame and stack spark arrestors, fuel gas scrubbers, and pressure control, which allows the unit to stay within the maximum allowable working pressure. These indirect heaters provide efficient heat transfer using a bath fluid that features a glycol-water mix, and they can achieve outlet process temperatures of up to 180 degF. They are skid- or trailer-mounted with onboard piping and instrumentation.
