LPG is gaining popularity as a fuel source due to the abundant supply, low-cost and eco-friendly alternative. However, implementing LPG in industrial, commercial or residential applications requires a deeper understanding of the systems and related variables. These include the boil-off rate, size and fill level of the storage vessel, storage tank’s pressure, ambient storage temperature, safety issues, failure rates, fuel consumption rate, and more. If you’re looking for a vapourizer for your application’s continuous and steady operation, we bring you a comprehensive guide to help you make the right choice.
Vaporizers are often distinguished based on the heating source for the fluid. Here are a few common vaporizers with different heat sources:
Ambient Vaporizers – They channel heat from the surrounding air in order to vaporize cryogenic and other low-temperature liquids.
Hot Water Vaporizers – Also known as water bath vaporizers, they use pre-heated water or any other hot liquid as a heat source for vaporization. As a result, there’s better precision in temperature control.
Radiant Heat Vaporizers – They use radiant energy from a combustible or any other heat source to vaporize and offer an alternative to conduction heating.
Steam Vaporizers – They use pre-heated steam or any other hot gas for vaporization and offer precise temperature control and efficient heat transfer.
Electric Vaporizers – These use electrically powered resistance heating coils to transfer heat for optimum vaporization.
Some key specifications define the performance of vaporizers.
Capacity – It is the rate at which the liquid is vaporized in the device and it is specified by kilograms per hour. For instance, customers who have a requirement of up to 1000 kg per hour can choose a classic vaporizer and those with a requirement of up to 50 kg per hour can opt for a mini vaporizer like MX Pro.
Maximum Temperature – This is the maximum operating temperature of the vaporizer or the highest temperature that the device is designed to reach. Depending on the requirements, you can choose one that best suits your highest temperature needs.
Power Requirements – If the vaporizer uses electric heat or any other electric power, the requirement is usually specified in kilowatts (kW).
Operating Pressure – This specifies the maximum pressure conditions under the operations at the maximum temperature.
Based on your individual requirements, you can find a vaporizer that aligns with your needs and fulfils all the criteria for your operations.
