Immersion heaters play a vital role in the oil pipeline industry. The increased demand for these heaters has forced many companies to look around for reliable heating solutions. Immersion heaters exist in three types as described below.
- Flange immersion heaters – designed for use in tanks and pressurized vessels, and are used for heating gases and liquified material.
- Over-the-side immersion heaters – used in the heating process and are placed over the side, since no tank modifications are required.
- Screw plug immersion heater – commonly used to solve problems related to connections and spacing. These heaters are immersed in any liquids, including oil.
With the rise of many pipeline projects comes great demand for effective equipment and tools to make the entire process efficient. AccuTherm has stepped in to address this issue and provides solutions that meet the demands of clients.It’s obvious the risks that come laden with the entire heating process are detrimental; hence the need for immersion heaters which make the entire process secure.

You may wonder how important heaters could be in our fast evolving world with the technological and economic advancements. Consider how much time it takes to transit thousands of oil drums from Canada or the United States down to the Gulf coast into refineries. It could be ridiculous to oversee such transportation using oil tanks, trucks, or even large ships. But installing a pipeline could ultimately solve issues of time wastage. Through immersion heaters, more time has been save in terms of transporting oil, as well as helped in eradicating unreasonable expenses by far.
Besides immersion heaters, oil pipeline industries also employ a number of different technologies and equipment at work. Pumps, compressors, and valves are some examples of equipment that are used. Several systems in oil pipeline industries also use real-time digital twin technology that help in detecting issues like a gas leak and help in responding to it before it becomes a major disaster. Additionally, twin technology helps in visualizing large spaces like building complex or factory floor without any hassle. If you want to know more about real-time technologies like this, you can check out websites like Vantiq (you can also read a blog post by Vantiq on digital twin technology).
