Unique sustainable heating solutions

Vermeer Thermex, specialists in external process heating systems

Vermeer Thermex International and their European principals, designs, manufactures and supplies the Thermex Thermal Maintenance System for all kind of piping, vessels and tanks maintaining the required process temperature enabling melt-out requirements.

The ThermEx Thermal Maintenance System is used in cases where cross contamination cannot be tolerated and/or the wall temperature uniformity is critical to prevent condensation and corrosion.

The combination of its cost advantage over jacketed piping and its thermal and reliability advantages over tube tracing make it an attractive thermal maintenance solution for most processes.

Vermeer Thermex International (VTI) is a company established in 2016. A professional joint venture between an industrial manufacturer with 65 years of experience and a supplier with more than 30 years of ample experience in process heating . VTI designs, engineers, manufactures and supplies the ThermEx Thermal Maintenance System for all kind of piping, vessels and tanks maintaining the required process temperature enabling melt-out requirements.

SCOPE OF SUPPLY

From design to commissioning

The ThermEx Thermal Maintenance System is used as external heating system on piping, vessels, drums and tanks, in cases where contamination from internal coil leaks cannot be tolerated and/or the wall temperature uniformity is critical to prevent condensation and corrosion.

01

Design: thermal analyses

Based on received information like : process data, material take off lists, eventual Isometric drawings, a thermal analyses is performed to determine the quantity of elements needed to guarantee the specified temperature range. This is normally done during front end engineering and design phase.

02

Engineering: compliant to CE/PED

– Detail engineering and thermal calculations based on final process data and isometric drawings at order intent phase. – Optimized heating medium routing specifying the supply and return locations as well as the preferred manifold locations. – Calculation of steam consumption (for steam supplied systems). – Installation drawings of the ThermEx Thermal Maintenance System. – The ThermEx Thermal Maintenance System will be designed , classified and manufactured in accordance to ASME Code VIII Div 1, compliant with to CE/PED.

03

Manufacturing: fully traceable

– Prefabrication in our shop of all TE elements or TE panels, pressure tested and tagged- Materials are fully traceable (Material and Test certificates) – Certificates : ISO9001, BS5750, AD 2000-Merkblatt HP 0 and a DIN EN ISO 3834-2, PED. – Design codes : ASME, BS, AD Merkblatt, EN 13445.

04

Supply

– All prefabricated TE elements or TE panels: Standard rating 10 barg – 260⁰C, higher rating is available on request. – All installation hardware : Band-It, Bolting, Clips, Straps and Heat Transfer Mastic. – Interconnecting jump-overs to interconnect all parts of the TE system. Different type of jump-overs are available – Installation drawings of the ThermEx Thermal Maintenance System and the CE/PED documentation. – Installation manual. – Site supervision on request of the client.

05

Alternative supply: on request

On request of the client, supply of preformed sections and prefabricated fittings for onsite fabrication. In addition to the standard engineering, VTI will provide individual shop drawings to produce the system on site and will supervise the prefabrication as well as installation on site.

06

Applications

– Piping from 1/2” up to unlimited – Vessels (Degassing vessels, Coolers) – Drums (Knock-out) – Storage Tanks up to a OD of 35 meter.

07
