Aitesa has performed the basic and FEED engineering services for the installation of an air preheating system in the Fired Heater H3-H2 of H3 Unit located at Cepsa Refinery “La Rabida” Palos de la Frontera, Huelva.
Currently the Fired Heater H3-H2 is a vertical cylindrical heater with natural draft. The absorbed duty design is 8,170 MM kcal/h. It aims to increase the heater capacity to 13,910 MM kcal/h, so we have verified the validity of the fired heater for the new required duty, as well as for the new operating conditions, hot air draft.
The project consists of:
