Where robust operation and ballast heat is desired water bath vaporizers are recommended.
The water bath can be heated by electricity, steam, or combustion gases. A stainless steel vaporizing tube bundle is submerged in the water bath, ready for immediate use. The heat into the bath is controlled to maintain a steady bath temperature. A mixture of glycol can also be used if planned downtime in a freezing climate is expected. Water Bath Vaporizers can be used to vaporize various cryogens and liquefied gases such as: nitrogen, oxygen, argon, carbon dioxide, ammonia, chlorine, ethelene and LNG to name a few.
Fuel Fired Water Bath Vaporizers offer high-capacity and economical operation. The water bath is heated and temperature controlled by hot combustion gases flowing through the Thermax Vortex-Flow™ submerged fire tube. Fuel fired water bath vaporizers offer a safe and reliable cryogenic or liquefied gas source for standby or continuous operation. Standard models are available with flow rates up to 4,000 MSCFH.
Thermax Electric Water Bath Vaporizers offer an extremely reliable and high flow vaporizer option. The cryogen is vaporized and superheated through a stainless steel tube bundle that is fit with proprietary vortex generators. The water ballast provides a large thermal mass that reduces peak power demand. Full power distribution and water bath temperature control is provided as part of the standard package. Standard units are available from 40 Kw to 2000 Kw.
Thermax Steam Sparged Water Bath Vaporizers offer a highly reliable and high flow vaporizer option. The water is maintained to a set point by injecting steam though proprietary sparges into the bath. Condensate is continually drained off. The cryogen is vaporized and superheated through the tube bundle that is fit with proprietary vortex generators. The bath provides ballast for vaporization even during steam outages. A steam control valve with controller is included as part of the standard package. Standard units are available to 1.5 MSCFH.
