Steam Heat Exchanger - Indirect Heater is used to heat the well effluent after it flows out of the well and prior to the separating process.
Heat is required for the following reasons:
This Type heat exchanger is also called direct heating furnace which allows to heat up the process coil directly. This is a kind of heating furnace that has the maximum heat exchange efficiency among the heating furnaces which are used in well testing. The superheated steam from the steam generator enters the pressure shell of the heating furnace to heat up the coil directly. Higher heat exchange efficiency and lower heat consumption are achieved on this equipment when compared with indirect heating furnaces. The coil is divided into upstream and downstream sections with an adjustable nozzle fitted between them to reduce the flow rate in the downstream coil section by throttling thus enabling more adequate heat exchange
Steam Heat Exchanger - Indirect Heater requires an adequate steam supply for operation. Some rigs have a sufficient steam supply, but usually a steam generator is required.
The typical specification of steam heat exchanger are 4 MMBTU/HR capacity, Process Coil 3" NB, 10,000psi, 10 passes Upstream of Choke, 14 passes Downstream of Choke, Process Inlet Connection 3", 1502 Union, Female (Thread half), Process Outlet Connection 3", 602 Union, Male (Wing half),Steam Inlet 2", 602 Union, Female (Thread half), Steam Return 2", 602 Union, Male (Wing half), Safety Devices Relief Valve, Rupture Disc, skid mounted.
