Temporary Heating Solutions for Oil & Gas Construction
Cahill has worked closely with Oil and Gas contractors across North America in the most severe environments. Oil & Gas construction projects operate under strict budgetary constraints and time schedules. Satisfying these budget and time constraints becomes incredibly challenging during winter. Construction contractors must trust the equipment they use, as construction delays can have severe financial implications. Oil & Gas contractors tend to focus on three key aspects when choosing what equipment to use:
- Safety Implications
- Equipment Reliability
Why is Cahill the Industry Leader in Temporary Heating?
SAFETY CONSIDERATION: Open Flames
Three major types of heating are available in the market:
Direct-fired heaters containing an open fire source are usually prohibited on Oil and Gas construction projects. The open flame from a direct-fired heater provides a significant fire risk. While more efficient than indirect-fired heaters, they are not as safe.
Flameless heaters from Cahill provide enhanced job site safety by eliminating the risks caused by an open flame.
SAFETY CONSIDERATION: Spillage Containment & Equipment Decluttering
Cahill Heaters are equipped with built-in secondary containment systems. Oil & Gas construction projects must follow rigid environmental protection protocols. This includes fuel spill mitigation. Most heaters require external trays or spillage containment equipment.
Cahill Heaters have 110% fuel containment capacity for all the fluids within the system. Using a Cahill Heater eliminates the need for additional on-site spill containment equipment.
In addition to not needing additional spill containment equipment, Cahill Heaters also provide industry-leading BTU output per unit. You also need fewer heaters to generate the same amount of heat. For any sized job site, less equipment means:
EQUIPMENT RELIABILITY: Reduced Downtime
An important consideration when selecting equipment for an Oil & Gas construction project is the potential for downtime caused by an equipment malfunction. Cahill Heaters provide industry-leading ease of service and equipment maintenance. All our heaters are designed for easy, on-site part replacement. All parts on a Cahill flameless heaters can be replaced within 2-hour.
INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE: Un-Matched Heat Delivery
A heater’s static pressure design determines how far air can be delivered from the source. Usually, when temporary heaters are used on a project, contractors employ a fire watch as an additional safety measure. However, if the static pressure is high enough to deliver heated air from hundreds of feet away, the need for an expensive fire watch can be eliminated. Thus, static pressure becomes a key consideration with economic implications and safety improvements. Cahill heaters far outperform competing heaters through their capability to deliver 500ft of either horizontal or vertical air. Fire watch is determined by a heater having a flame or not having a flame… not how far the air is pushed from the heat source.
