Liquid Heating

Liquid heating applications are a major use of energy for a wide range of industries covering chemicals, engineering, brewing, food and textiles.

Traditional liquid heating systems have relied on centrally generated steam systems which often have low overall efficiencies of between 40 and 50%.

Nordsea engineers offer expert advice and specialist services, including system design, installation and commissioning.

In-direct Liquid Heating

Nordsea Process Heating Division have developed a range of gas fired burners and heat exchangers that provide:

GT and Compac immersion tube burners are incorporated into process tanks and production lines in textile finishing, food processing and metal finishing. Other applications include tank heating within bottle washing and spray tunnel pasteurising machines.

In-Line liquid heaters can be used as direct replacements to steam heat exchangers for efficient "indirect" heating (i.e. no contact between product and burner exhaust gases) of textile dye liquors, acids, chemical cleaning solutions and food products such as fruit juice, ‘wort’ for beer brewing and milk pasteurising and sterilising systems.

Direct Liquid Heating

Very high efficiencies are achieved by contact between burner exhaust gases and the liquid being heated. Conventional designs of ‘submerged combustion’ direct-contact heaters have limitations on outlet temperature of around 50 C.
