For many fracking operations, efficient heating solutions are essential. The right solutions can allow your fracking to go smoothly year-round, enabling you to maximize productivity and stakeholder return on investment. On the other hand, an unreliable water heater can end up causing unnecessary delays, cost your organization money, and endanger your workers and equipment. Choosing the right heating solution is critical to your operation’s success.

Below, you’ll find several key things to look for in your next frac water heater, as well as how Vortex Energy Services frac water heaters can take your operation to the next level.

1. Performance To Get the Job Done

Above all else, frac water heaters need to have the performance capabilities to meet your operation’s needs. Northern Albertan winters can be brutal and unforgiving; you need to be able to rely on your equipment to get the job done consistently, no matter the conditions.

Vortex Energy Services offers 12 million and 36 million BTU frac water heaters suitable for projects of all sizes and scopes. They are engineered for maximum performance in a wide variety of operating scenarios, ideal for tank, pond, slip-stream, and in-line heating. No matter what your next project requires, Vortex offers high-performance heating solutions that stand up to the most demanding requirements.

2. Efficiency To Keep Your Project Running

All fracking operations need to be focused on delivering ROI and value to their stakeholders. By maximizing efficiency and minimizing unnecessary time and financial costs, organizations will be able to make their projects a success.

Vortex frac water heaters are engineered to deliver exceptional value and efficiency. Our units feature 99% thermal output, meaning nearly all heat generated is transferred directly to the water, with minimal energy lost to radiant heat. Vortex frac water heaters are among the most efficient heaters available today, designed to add value to any operation by minimizing heating time and fuel costs.

3. Safety at the Forefront

Safe operations are paramount to the success of the fracking industry. Protecting workers, equipment, and the environment is critical to any operation’s success; mitigating the risks associated with fracking has been proven to save both time and money in the short and long-term.

Vortex Energy Services puts safety at the forefront of everything we do and are proud to offer some of the safest frac water heaters on the market. With 99% of generated heat transferred directly to the water, our units operate with minimal emanating heat and safety risks. Unlike many frac water heaters, Vortex units feature a fully-enclosed flame, minimizing fire hazards to protect your crew and equipment. Finally, all Vortex frac water heaters feature remote operation capabilities, state-of-the-art emergency shutdown controls, and other safety features to protect your operation.

4. Go-Anywhere, Do-Anything Solutions

Many fracking sites are in remote locations, making accessibility a challenge. Large equipment can be challenging to transport and install, and getting fuel to your site (not to mention storing it) can prove to be a logistical nightmare. Ideally, your frac water heater should be easy to transport and install, with the unit and fuel requiring as little space on your job site as possible.

Vortex frac water heaters are designed to have small footprints, making them ideal for operating environments with limited space. Small but powerful, our units are designed to be transported, installed, and put into operation quickly, all without sacrificing performance. Vortex frac water heaters can run on propane, compressed natural gas, or diesel for maximum versatility, efficiency, and performance in any operating scenario.
