Cargo heating

Cargo heating

Framo deck-mounted cargo heaters eliminate the need for in-tank heating coils. The cargo tank interior can be made with flush tank  top free from coils, brackets and clamps. A flush tank top facilitates quicker stripping with less cargo remaining in the tank. The cargo tank washing can be performed quicker, with less consumption of washing water and less slop handling.


High flexibility to heat all traded cargoes, such  as heavy fuel oils, oil products, palm oils and  other chemicals that may be temperature sensitive and requires a gentle heating procedure.

The specially shaped heating elements secure  easy cargo circulation and have a low surface temperature against cargo.

The high capacity and low pressure drop  through the cargo heater gives a low power consumption during circulation and secure  a good mixing and heat distribution inside the cargo tank.

The heating medium can be saturated steam, hot water or thermal oil.

Framo deck mounted cargo heating system  is supplied as an integral part of the cargo pumping system for all sizes of oil tankers, chemical tankers and FPSOs.
