Reboilers

The heating of process fluids for column distillation is necessary in most processes of refineries, petrochemical and chemical plants. When the steam operating pressures/temperatures are not satisfactory for the heat source, then a direct fired heater must be used for the reboiler.

In most cases the reboiling process service is simple enough for vertical cylindrical heaters. However for some services, special care is required in the design to obtain the necessary reboiling temperature but not exceed the maximum inside film temperature limit of the fluid.

Due to the variety of industries served, liquid or gaseous fuels are burnt in this process. We have designed many reboiler heaters of different types and capacities.

The typical services of reboilers are:

  • Splitter reboilers
  • Stripper reboilers
  • Debutaniser reboilers
  • Naphtha splitter reboilers
  • Product fractionators reboilers
