Turbulators Improve Process Heater Efficiency
How Process Turbulators Work
Our process turbulators are a simple, yet highly effective solution for reducing maintenance, extending equipment life and increasing efficiency of process heaters. Process turbulators are NOT turn-key products – each is designed specifically to fit your equipment exactly. As combustion gasses flows past them, the nuanced geometry of the turbulator disperses the gas/fluid and forces it to mix, that is, add turbulence. Dispersal causes gasses to transfer more energy to the tube wall.
