Abstract

In certain processes it is necessary to heat a process fluid indirectly by immersing it in a tank containing a heat transfer fluid. This article teaches a novel approach wherein temperature of both the heat transfer fluid and the temperature of the process fluid are both detected and used to control the heater unit which heats the heat transfer fluid to speed up the heating rate of the process fluid and eliminate the undesirable temperature drift of the process fluid under load transients.
