Using Low-Pressure Steam for Railcar Tank Heating

There are many products required to be heated to a specific temperature to be able to efficiently unload them from rail tank cars. As the temperature gets colder, a wider range of liquids and chemicals are affected and need to be heated in order to unload them.

There are three main methods to heat a tank rail car for offloading or transloading:  1) hot water from an industrial water heater pumped through the heat lines of the tank car, 2) steam from a high-pressure boiler system, and 3) low-pressure steam from a steam generator. Hot water and high-pressure steam are used for very specific applications and facility layouts. Low-pressure steam from a steam generator is the most versatile when it comes to products to be unloaded and facility layouts.
