Torpedo Preheaters

Torpedo Preheaters are used for drying and heating torpedo ladles. Each preheater is unique and is customised according to the client’s needs.

Torpedo ladle is long and cylindrical and as such might require to be designed with two burners, the number of burners depend on the size of torpedo.

These can be vertical and horizontal type.
We are offering the following additional enhancement:-

  • Recuperative Type Preheater: Flue gases exhaust from the ladle at a very high temperature ( 1000 C and above), We use the heat from flue gasses to preheat the air by using a customised heat exchanger specially designed for Ladle applications and are able to save up to 25% in the running cost.
  • Oxy Enrichment: Oxy enrichment is used either to achieve higher heating temperature more than 1200 C or to reduce the fuel consumption or reduce the cycle time. The energy saving can vary from 10 to 25% depending upon the level of enrichment.
  • Multi Fuel Fired: All the burners are custom designed and are for specific requirement and as such we can use multiple type of fuel in the same burner (liquid/Gaseous) without changing the burner, we also supply burners which can fire multiple gaseous.

These systems can be energized by almost all Liquid and Gaseous fuel. We are supplying systems which are using blast furnace gas (800 Kcal/Nm3)

We can offer various type of hood movement for the system using hydraulic, pneumatic or geared motors.

We can offer your highly customised solutions according to your needs.
