  • Onshore terminals and gas plants
WHRU types:
  • Vertical
  • Horizontal
  • Integral bypass
  • Separate bypass
BIH global success and reliability in fired heater design and supply is being utilised into this area of heat transfer technology.
Within the WHRU package BIH can take responsibility for:
  • Silencing
  • Supplementary and Auxiliary firing
  • Internal / external bypass
  • Dampers
Energy Conservation Plants
  • Air preheating systems
  • Steam generation systems

BIH internal staff covers the complete variety of engineering disciplines necessary to execute the most composite projects required by the International Clients.
Base and detailed engineering are completely executed by our in-house team of engineers, in accordance with the Client’s specifications, the International codes (ASTM, ASME, API, DIN, BS, AISC etc.) as well as our Company standards with the state of the art software available (see also http://www.bihl.com/design_tools.html)
The 3D drafting of all drawings is carried out by our internal staff, that also execute the structural and dynamic calculations and the coils analysis.
BIH engineering has extensive competence in the design, supply and erection of complete “heater packages”, including: civil works, process and burner piping, external insulation, local and control room instrumentation and panels, burner management systems (BMS) , DCS, MCC, lighting and earthing systems, AWL etc.
3D modeling of the heater or WHRU enables our customers to evaluate precisely any piping interference in a “walk-in” mode with unmatched accuracy.

Other services include:
  • feasibility studies
  • energy saving studies and optimizations
