TMA-Joy's Indirect heaters are offered in a wide variety of output ratings that are widely applicable to the petroleum industry, in power generation and industrial uses. Indirect Heaters operate reliably, efficiently and safely.TMA-Joy offers four (4) types of Indirect Heaters.
Water Bath Heaters
Water Bath heaters have a vessel filled with a transfer media of water or glycol/water mixture (see diagram). The combustion chamber (firetube) and the process coil are submerged in the media. The firetube transfers the heat released by the burner to the media which then transfers the heat to the process through the process coil. The maximum operating temperature of the Water Bath heater is 190°F.TMA-Joy's standard sizes for Water Bath Heaters are available.
