MegaFlow - Bulk Speciality Gas Heater System
The MegaFlowTM System was developed to maintain high gas flows of thermodynamically intense bulk liquefied compressed gas applications. A specialty designed heater skid, able to securely support the common "ton" size cylinders, provides an efficient method for delivering heat to the cylinder.

One of the technical difficulties associated with bulk delivery is the drop in temperature of the system resulting with reduced mass gas flow and reduced delivery pressure. Lowering of the system's internal energy by high gas removal rates causes the temperature drop. A direct consequence of high gas flow rates for many gases is evaporative cooling. In this case the lowering of internal energy is caused by the vaporization of the liquid chemical to the gas- eous state in order to sustain high gas flow rates.

The MegaFlowTM System successfully delivers energy, in the fonD of the heat, to the bulk cylinder and contents to offset the associ- ated energy losses of high gaseous flow rates. Steady state conditions are achievable for even the most demanding high flow applica- tions for maintainin~ specified delivery pressures and mass-flow rates.
