: our is a bopp film plant & we burn HFO IN STEAM BOILER & IN POWER HOUSE.WE RECIVE HFO TANKERS OF 24000 LITRS( ABOUT 24 TON) IN A TANKER.OUR FUEL OIL TANKERS CAME FROM ABOUT 200 KM IN WINTER. THE OIL BECOME SO COLD AND THICK THAT IT BECOME DIFFICULT TO UNLOAD THE CARRIAGE &IT TAKE SEVERAL HRS TO RAISE THE TEMPERATURE OF OIL TO POUR POINT BY STEAM COILS.I WANT TO ASK IS THERE ANY QUICK METHODE AVAILABLE THROUGH WHICH WE WILL BE ABLE TO RAISE THE OIL TEMP. IN LESS TIME.
: ANY VALUEABLE SUGGESTION WILL BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.
Unfortuntatly once the oil has become thick it needs to be warmed up to reach the pour point in which the vicsocity of the oil will change. In your case the only solution that quickly comes to my mind at this time is placing a small heated recirculation pump on the transport vehical, so that the oil my be kept warm. I'm sure one of the suppliers in your area may have some sort of relief for you truck operator as I know he is not payed to wait around and wait till the pour point is reached.
