Thermal Oil Heating Plant

Postby danyd19 » Mon May 13, 2013 12:34 pm

If I was going to generically name categories for the main components of a Thermal Oil Heating System. What would they be?

1. Burner Equipment
2. Motors
3. Pumps
4. Valves
5. Regulation and Control

Can anyone suggest anything else for me?

I'm working on a planned maintenance project.

Expansion and storage tanks for the thermal oil, level alarm for expansion tank.
Heat exchangers to other systems such as steam or hot water.
It is always better to ask a stupid question than to do a stupid thing.
