Indirect Steam Generators

Steam is the most widely recognized heat energy transfer mechanism and is capable of providing rapid and even heating for many large-scale industrial applications.

Steam is regularly used as a driving force in turbines and as a motive force to keep liquid and gas streams flowing. Process fluid heat exchangers, dew point heaters, reboilers, combustion air preheaters and many other types of heat transfer equipment frequently use steam as the heating medium.

Sigma Thermal offers a unique option for indirect steam generation that utilizes high-temperature hot oil and a customized heat exchanger.  In facilities that have several high-temperature users and that plan to use a hot oil system in addition to steam, the need for a separate fuel-fired boiler can be eliminated. This configuration can also be advantageous areas that may not require licensed staff for operation due to the indirect nature of the generation.

To learn more about the heat exchanger or the hot oil system option, contact our process heating experts. Our team will ensure that you get a custom engineered solution that integrates fully into your plant environment.
