This heater consists of a bundle of longitudinally finned U-tubes mounted in a shell. The shell is open at one end and furnished with a mounting flange, which can be bolted directly to the tank manway flange. Standard mounting flange sizes are normally one flange size larger than the shell pipe size and are drilled to match a 150 lb. ASA/ANSI flange of that size. Unlike the large circular heating coils (sometimes placed in bottoms of storage tanks that heat all the liquid in the tank) a BROWN FINTUBE® Tank Suction Heater heats only the liquid being pumped. Also, the heater is placed above the bottom and consequently does not lose efficiency in heating through a layer of sediment.
