Heat Exchangers

Decarbonization efforts worldwide,led both by industry leaders and legislation, have increased efforts to shift fossil fuel use to renewables. One way many industrial o industrial organizations can embrace this- and already have- is by shifting process heaters systems from fuel-burning to electric.

Companies in liquified natural gas (LNG) and other industries have been taking bold steps to reduce their carbon footprint. The overall strategy of these companies is to tackle carbon emissions not only through alternative energy investment and increased efficiency, but also through converting key industrial processes (like process heating) to electric (rather than fuel-fired). This paper explores pressures to electrify process heating, as well as the role that electric heat exchangers are playing, particularly in light of innovations in the design of these heaters.
