The Silver Weibull USA, Reheater consists of a robust, reinforced vessel with a replaceable heat exchanger bundle. The construction is modular so that a double size vessel uses two identical heat exchanger bundles. The all welded construction uses 3/8" carbon steel plate with adequate angle stiffeners and is tall enough to provide sufficient head to the massecuite being reheated. For best performance with heavy massecuites the vessel should be kept as full as possible. If more volume is desirable the vessel height can easily be extended. The vessel is designed for up to 20 feet of head.
