Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is obtained by cooling methane gas down to -162° C which converts it into liquid state. That is why LNG is a cryogenic material that must be transported and stored in specially constructed heat-insulated tanks. Storing a liquid in -162° C results in ice formation and frost swelling, which damages the floor plate and the ground under the tanks. Here comes the advantage of SAMM Teknoloji anti-frost electric heating systems, which can heat the LNG tank floor plate and prevent any deterioration damage.
Ice formation on exposed surfaces is one of the most serious problems that face sea vessels and off shore plants in polar and arctic environments. Ice formation occurs at low ambient temperatures, especially in the presence of rain, fog, snow or strong wind, and it can be very dangerous to the general operation or the personnel.
SAMM Teknoloji offers anti-frost protection, ice accumulation prevention and ice melting solutions and applications for shipping and support vessels, icebreakers, semi-submerged drilling plants and any offshore or floating surfaces.
Offshore electrical heating systems ensure the continuous operation of all onboard pipes, tanks, and ship equipment in low-temperature environments; even when the most critical ice-formation elements (low temperature, cold sea water and wind) are present at once.
Materials used in an environment with high corrosion and abrasion effects must be highly resistant to corrosion and abrasion, in addition to mechanical properties and temperature range consideration.
In this regard, SAMM Teknoloji provides various products that provide piping, heating and instrumentation in pre-assembled tubing. The most popular solutions of this category are TubeTrace® Pre-insulated and Heat Traced Tubing, which are assembled from various tubing materials, heating cables and accessories. Pipe heating bundles are used for frost-protection and temperature maintenance in small diameter industrial piping, pulse process lines and and small pipelines.
Electrical or steam heat tracing is a very common application for liquid or gas loading equipment and transfer lines in chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and food industries.
However, maintaining the properties of fluids and gas while transferring them under severe conditions is very challenging.
The reason why loading equipment heat tracing is different is that it includes severely exposed, not insulated, areas and large masses of metal that sink the heat very quickly. That is why only a comprehensive experience in loading equipment heat tracing, as the experience of SAMM Teknoloji in this field, is able to result in efficient solutions.
Our typical loading equipment heat tracings applications include:
- Sea loading arms.
- Top and bottom loading arms for truck and railway transport.
- Pharmaceutical and food industry.
Heat tracing in the shipping industry is useful for various applications, each of which requires special knowledge and experience of electrical heat tracing systems. Typically offshore heat tracing is used for decking lines on shipping tankers transporting oil, chemicals, bitumen and food substances.
SAMM Teknoloji solutions in tanker heat tracing, temperature maintenance and anti-frost protection include:
- Loading and unloading lines
- Gas/steam return lines
- Rims and cleaning lines
- Oil and fuel lines
- Storage tanks and ships
- Deck and tank cleaning lines
- Fire protection lines
- Engine room fuel and dripping lines
- Cross-over lines
- Safety showers
Heat tracing is very common for protecting offshore oil and gas plants, floating production and offloading facilities, ships or drilling rigs. In such applications electric heat tracing is essential for protection against freezing temperatures, which ensures process temperature maintenance and personnel comfort.
Biodiesel is an alternative diesel fuel derived from renewable sources such as animal or vegetable oils. Biodiesel is produced from any natural oils, such as soybean oil, using a refinery process called transesterification. This is process also produces glycerin as a side product. Although, biodiesel does not contain petrol, it can be mixed with petrol or oil to form a biodiesel blend.
In order to have an efficient biodiesel refinery process, a complete system of heat tracing and tank isolation is required. In this regard, SAMM Teknoloji offers heat tracing and tank isolation solutions that meets all customers’ requirements in biodiesel production facilities.
Solar energy is an important clean renewable energy source, which will shape the future. SAMM Teknoloji , with all the heat tracing technologies and engineering expertise that has been accomplished, can meet the heating and anti-frost requirements of every application that relies on solar energy.
SAMM Teknoloji produces insulation jackets with integrated heating cables, specially designed to fit certain pipe connection points or industrial equipment.
