Heatec fire tube reboiler
THE HEATEC FIRE TUBE REBOILER is a fired heat exchanger that can be used in systems that process natural gas for pipeline distribution. Two of these units may be used in a gas processing system.
One may be used to regenerate glycol.
The other may be used to regenerate amine.
When glycol is used to remove moisture from gas the glycol becomes a mixture of glycol and water. It must be regenerated before it can be reused. Regeneration removes the water fromthe glycol. Our re-boiler provides heat for this process. Heating the glycol-water mixture vaporizes the water, while the glycol remains mostly liquid. The vapors are usually piped to a distillation column, which recovers glycol that may have vaporized.
When amine is used to remove hydrogen sulfide (H2 S) and carbon dioxide (CO2 ) from gas, it too must be regenerated before it can be reused. Regeneration removes these contaminants from the amine.
Our re-boiler provides heat for this process. Our reboilers can be configured for a specific use and to suit customer needs. In its standard configuration the unit consists of a steel shell that contains two long-life fire tubes, each with a separate burner. The fire tubes are removable and can be replaced if necessary. The forced draft burners are gas-fired. Natural draft burners are optional. Each burner has a turndown ratio of 10 to 1. Use of two burners provides a combined turndown ratio of 20 to 1.
