A thermal oil boiler fires through a helical coil and generates energy from the hot products of combustion by heating the coil through radiation and convection. The coil heats thermal oil or fluid that is pumped through the thermal oil boiler. The thermal oil heats coils in various types of heat exchangers. Unlike a water or steam boiler, this heating process does not heavily pressurize the system.
Why are thermal oil systems superior to water boiling systems?
A thermal oil boiler is nearly always cheaper to operate and maintain than water boilers. Unfortunately, due to the high pressure required to operate water and steam boilers, they can become far more hazardous than thermal oil boilers.
Other noticeable advantages are the lack of corrosion, lime deposits and scale that are common within heated water or steam boilers. This can raise the operating costs of a water boiler considerably. You should also realize that thermal oil boilers don’t require makeup water or efficiency draining steam traps.
