Liquid Phase HTF & Hot Oil Heating Plant

Dove Thermal Engineering has designed and built unblanketed Thermia B systems for hot oil heating at 290 deg.C using conventional hot oil boilers, Therminol 66 thermal fluid process heating installations working to 340 deg.C at atmospheric pressure, and re-engineered Dowtherm A installations running at 370 deg.C and 6.7 bar(g).

Solid State Coolers & Appliances

Thermo-electric devices allow unique opportunities for compact applications – particularly in aerospace and electronic environments. Consumer Products we have prototyped and developed include a table-top wine cooler, a chill box with freezer compartment, an immersion cooler, cooling jug and various machine coolers.


Process Cooling Design

We apply the maths – and practice - of heat transfer & fluid mechanics to all types of process cooling design projects. Accurate modelling enables "right first time" results in the design and construction of (for instance) batch and batch-continuous cooling plant and equipment, with accurate prediction of processing times.


Process Heating Systems

Many of the reverse flame heaters now firing industry-standard continuous baking ovens are of our original design, whilst more recent work includes plant and equipment for hot box buffer storage, pressurized HTF systems and biomass autoclaving processes. We have designed and installed several boilerhouses and steam heating plants driving a variety of manufacturing operations, where isothermal operations offer significant advantages over sensible heating mechanisms.


Heat Transfer Design

This page reviews how the fundamentals of heat-and-mass transfer underly all natural and man-made operations. Following from our design and construction of host systems, we develop working profiles to match duty conditions and originate specialist heat exchange plant aimed directly at process improvement.
