Immersion Heaters For Fuel Oil and Lube Oil Systems
A large user of lubrication systems for rotating equipment was unhappy with the premature failure of immersion heaters. The heaters keep the oil warm during downtime.
Solution: Durex examined the heater sheath in our in-house metallurgical lab and discovered that the heater sheath was being corroded. A lube oil analysis showed an additive in the oil that was corrosive to the steel sheath employed in the heater. Durex proposed a 304SS sheath with appropriate watt density for the oil viscosity with a high limit temperature sensor.
Result: Durex provides a wide variety of time-tested lube oil and fuel oil heating solutions. We applied this expertise to optimize the heater solution and provided a design change that solved the customer’s problems and enhances equipment up-time.
