As oil is slowly becoming less plentiful in the world, it’s becoming more important to be able to extract oil in any and all environments, even in the harshest and most difficult areas of this planet. The tar sands have become nothing short of essential over the last 2 decades since the bitumen that can be recovered in these harsh areas is indispensable to being able to fulfill the world’s need for oil. The difficulty in doing this, though, is that the separation of oil from these sands is an extremely difficult process and needs a tough and reliable inline steam heater to achieve this separation. Our Severe Inline Steam Heater is perfect for this situation.
The Severe Inline Steam Heater uses tungsten carbide construction, a compound which ranks 9 on the Moh’s hardness scale, making it highly durable and very long lasting. This heater is a far more rugged and durable model than any of Komax’s other inline steam heaters. It can furnish small or large amounts of heated liquids and has an exacting temperature control module. What’s more, is that it is more energy efficient than other heating systems and will provide a supply of hot water instantly when needed. The steam and bitumen froth or slurry is instantly combined together by this heater’s unique internal six element equalizer mixing module. These elements add minuscule steam bubbles into the process flow stream, and this makes the separation process far easier than you see with other steam heaters.
In addition to those advantages, though, there are no moveable parts on this steam heater. This means maintenance is always minimal. It also means vibration and noise levels are almost non-existent, which make the heater even more durable and longer lasting. This Severe Inline Steam Heater will provide the hot water that is needed exactly when it’s needed and at very precise and exact temperatures each and every time.
