Manufacturing API 560 Fired Heaters
Fired-heaters play essential roles in oil and gas industries. FEPCO, acquiring the knowledge developed in HEDCO, is able to design, construct, and commission the following type of heaters according to API 560;
However, FEPCO also benefits from its joint venture with well-known fired heater suppliers; and therefore, is able to manufacture various types of process heaters, such as pyrolysis cracking, and vis-breaking.
Process fired heaters consist three major parts; radiant section, convection section, and stack. Burners are utilized in the radiant section to control the firing of the fuel with air, keeping the flame stable. Heat is majorly transferred to the tubes by the means of radiation in this section. In the convection section, heat is absorbed from the flue gas passing over bare and finned tubes. Stack is used to ensure the required draft for burners and guarantee the proper flow rate of the flue gas. Due to safety requirements, the burner management system is subject to strict design and manufacturing standards.
FEPCO has achieved the know-how of designing heaters including thermal and process design, mechanical and structural design, and the fire control system. FEPCO provides the following services
