Heating coils

Heating coils. Vessels carrying cargo oil in bulk may be fitted with steam heating coils in order to maintain the required temperature for pumping.


By circulating steam through the coils it is possible to increase the temperature gradually to the required level to facilitate pumping by reducing the liquid viscosity. 

Fuel oil tanks are also equipped with the necessary heating coils, in order to ensure sufficient liquid fluidity for pumping at all times.
