Industrial Significance of Process Heating
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF PROCESS HEATING?
An industrial process heater is a form of thermal energy source that is specifically used in the manufacture, treatment, or modification of goods. Process heating is required for various manufacturing operations. The primary function is to transfer heat indirectly to a process material (liquid, gas, or solid) rather than generating steam. They can be used for both direct as well as indirect heating, depending on the application.
VARIOUS INDUSTRIES THAT RELY ON PROCESS HEATING
- Oil and Gas Processing – Process heaters are used to maintain heat in a liquid medium such as oil and different chemicals, as well as stabilise the gas.
- Chemical and Petrochemical – To maintain the heat inside storage containers and tanks for optimal viscosity.
- Food & Beverage– Heating provides proper freeze protection as well as fluid temperature control.

Marathon heaters can engineer, design, and manufacture electric process heater such as Circulation heaters, Immersion heaters, Screw plug heaters, Tubular heaters, and so on. We also build process heaters with other processing components such as valves, pumps, blowers, piping, as well as sensors. We can also provide temperature control panels to power the electric process heaters.
