The heating of tanks is a common industrial practice in many applications. Heating may be required to maintain pumping viscosity of heavy oil or resins, to prevent crystalline precipitation (sodium hydroxide), to facilitate production processes, for freeze protection, and hundreds of other applications. MATRUSREE offers literally hundreds of ways of heating tanks of all sizes. Included in this guide is an overview of the types of tank heating approaches. The manual is not meant to be a complete guide to each of these heating methods, rather an overview of what is available. Once a specific method is selected, further investigation should be made into the suitability of the heater for the application. Finally, the manual is a detailed guide on sizing heaters for large tanks. This guide includes sizing details that are beyond the scope of the sizing guide presented in the general catalog.
A list of some materials commonly stored and heated in tanks is listed as follows:

A. Liquids and aqueous based solutions:
  • Heating of Liquid carbon dioxide
