Industrial Heating Equipment from American Heating CompanyAs leaders in the industrial heating industry with decades of experience, our team has fielded hundreds – if not thousands – of questions from our clients and customers.

Here, we provide the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about thermal fluid heaters and industrial heating systems.

Why Should I Choose a Hot Oil Boiler Instead of a Steam Boiler?

There are number of things that make hot oil heating systems better than steam boiler systems for facilities in most industries. Hot oil boilers are able to operate at higher temperatures without requiring pressurization or chemical regulation. They provide safer, more efficient heat than most industrial steam boilers on the market. And those are just a couple of the advantages they offer!

What Are The Different Ways You Can Build an Industrial Hot Oil Heater?

From our perspective, there are two ways you can build industrial hot oil heaters: you can build them with helical coils (like most manufacturers do), or you can build them with serpentine coils (like we do).

At American Heating Company, we specialize in building serpentine coil heaters and encourage our clients and customers to invest in these heaters because we feel they are the superior thermal fluid heater model. They offer a number of benefits and advantages, including increased efficiency and more effective heat transfer.

What Is The Difference Between a Serpentine Coil and a Helical Coil?

There are a number of differences between serpentine coils and helical coils. Besides being structured differently, these two types of coils vary in terms of efficiency, heat transfer, operating temperature, fluid degradation rate, and more.

The following resources will provide you with more information on the key differences between serpentine coil and helical coil heaters.
