Vaporizers are devices which heat and vaporize a working fluid. In many cases, they are similar to industrial boilers except that they do not build up high pressures. Vaporizer units are most commonly used for low pressure heat transfer by incorporating the vaporized stream as the heat exchange fluid. They can also be used to vaporize liquid fuels or cryogenic liquids.
The most fundamental distinction between different types of vaporizers is function. Vaporizers are used for one of two basic purposes: to generate a vapor or to transfer heat.
Vaporizers designed solely for generating a vapor from a liquid stream are used in a broad range of applications. Propane vaporizers, for example, are designed to vaporize liquid propane (lp) in order to supply propane gas tHorizontal electric vaporizero equipment. This is essential for cold environments where natural vaporization from storage is insufficient, or in systems where vapor requirements are very high. Vaporizers can be used similarly with other fuels such as gasoline and kerosene, most notably in applications such as fuel-injection for engines. They may also be used in cryogenic applications for superheating or vaporizing low temperature fluids (between -280 and -420 °F) such as liquefied natural gas or liquid nitrogen. Or they may simply be used for generating steam or other hot gases by heating liquid feeds.
Vaporizers can also be used specifically as heat transfer devices which use heat transfer fluids and refrigerants in their vapor form. Using vapors over liquids or solid surfaces allows for lower pressure heat exchange as well as better temperature uniformity. These units typically incorporate a shell and tube heat exchanger and may incorporate the vaporized fluid either inside or outside the tubes. Heat exchange vaporizers may use either single or multi-component heat transfer fluids.

These features can quickly meet the urgent needs of clients and establish a trustworthy repair and maintenance services with good reputation.
Ambient air vaporizers use the relative “heat” of the atmosphere to derive the energy necessary for the vaporization of the liquid cryogen, which is the most simple type of LNG vaporizer. LNG is flowing through tubes and it is vaporized by air. It can be done naturally or by force. If it is done naturally, then it requires no power, and vice versa. Ambient vaporizers represent the most cost effective equipment to vaporize or re-gasify liquid cryogens.
Water bath vaporizers for high volume vaporization and regasification of industrial gases and LNG. Energy sources utilized are hydrocarbon fuels of all types, except diesel, natural gas, steam, electricity and externally sourced hot water.
Shell and tube direct contact vaporizers for high and low pressure vaporization and regasification of industrial gases and LNG. Energy sources utilized are Steam, and externally sourced Hot Water.
