Indirect water bath heaters are designed to heat process fluids like natural gas or hydrocarbons via the indirect transfer of thermal energy.
Indirect water bath heaters are used for various applications in the fields of oil and gas production, processing, and transportation.
The heat is generated by a burner, which heats a water bath containing a tube bundle through which the process fluid flows. This results in the indirect heating of the fluid passing through the tube bundle itself.
