What materials are used in Hydroheaters?
The standard material for Hydroheaters is grade 316 stainless steel. Other metallurgies are available based on requirements for corrosiveness, abrasiveness, or other conditions that may require a variance from our standard materials. we can use 317L, Hastelloy, 254 SMO, up to AL6XN
Are Hydro-Thermal products ASME certified?
They are designed per ASME code, but are not certified. They can be certified upon special request.
Can your products be used to heat abrasive fluids?
The Hydroheater is very robust and reliable, and can be further enhanced as needed for heating abrasive fluids. For many applications, a weld overlay and enriched material in key areas is sufficient. Some applications such as slurries with sand content require additional overlays outside the basic weld overlay. This technique has greatly increased the heater’s internal component lifespan. Other fluids have required more extensive modifications. In oil sands froth heating applications, for example, a combination of a weld overlay as well as the use of hard, abrasive resistant materials is recommended.
