cargoFARAD is proud to introduce cargo deck heaters. This follows the successful drop-in replacement of existing heat exchanging equipment with Farad heaters for a number of clients. The deck heater Heat Exchangers, is an integral part of the cargo handling system on a crude carrier. It provides heating to the cargo in each tank, when heating is required in order to prevent solidification.

FARAD cargo heaters are of the shell and tube type, which is a tested heat exchanger type used in many oil and gas applications. FARAD Cargo Heater design does not tie the ship owner to a specific equipment vendor. The heat exchanger is installed vertically onto the deck. The shell is easily removed for cleaning, inspection and access.

Engineering Design
Heat transfer design is based on state of the art software. The heating capacity will be adequate even after extensive use and accumulation of fouling on the heat transfer surfaces. Additionally, the heater has been designed to cope with the most viscous crude oil cargoes. Overall, the deck heater is designed for reliability and long service life.
Approval is available from all major classification societies.
