CEI Hot Oil Heater

CEI's jacketed firebox hot oil heater heats and circulates heat transfer fluid that provides heat to storage tanks, fuel preheaters, and numerous other components of hot mix asphalt plants. The heater's design makes it easily adaptable to other heating applications, such as industrial processing and bulk liquid storage facilities.

Asphalt-Rubber Blending Systems are typically comprised of two main components: a portable mixing unit that initially mixes ground rubber with liquid asphalt, and a reaction tank that both agitates and stores the mixture.

Features include:
  • Works at any hot mix asphalt plant.

  • Heats and circulates heat transfer fluid for heating storage tanks and other equipment.

  • Proven dependable and durable since 1969.

  • State-of-the-art digital controls.

  • 90% peak thermal efficiency. Uses less fuel than others.

Full Modulation Burner allows the fire rate to closely match the heat demand. This conserves fuel, reduces temperature over-shooting, and eliminates constant on-off recycling.

Temperature Controllers — Two microprocessor-based controllers provide control over output temperatures. The temperature controller regulates the flow of fuel and combustion air to the burner to efficiently maintain the temperature set point on the controller. The high media temperature limit is a safety control. If the temperature of the heat transfer oil reaches the temperature limit set on this controller, it will shut down the burner.

Flame Monitor — The flame monitor is a microprocessor-based burner management control system. The monitor provides proper burner sequencing, ignition and flame monitoring protection. In conjunction with limit and operating controls it sequences the burner/blower motor, ignition, and fuel valves to provide for proper and safe burner operation. Other features include:

  • Self-diagnostic for safety and reliability.

  • Non-volatile memory retains information even when power is interrupted.

  • Microprocessor-based for accurate timing, comprehensive diagnostics and precision control. Display can be viewed through window on panel door.


Circulating Pump and Motor — The heater's centrifugal pump circulates heat transfer oil through the heater and its heating circuit. Viton shaft seal rings provide a reliable seal with virtually no leakage.

Operating Controls and Indicator Lights — Lights and switches on the control panel provide for easy operation of the heater. Operator can determine heater status at a glance. The control panel includes a pressure gauge for the circulating pump and the alarm horn. The panel meets NEMA 4 requirements to protect against windblown dust and rain, splashing water and hose-directed water.

All CEI Jacketed Firebox Heaters are factory-tested for 8 hours prior to shipment.
