When Conditions Are Tough... Think Plates Instead Of Tubes
Now you can obtain the thermal efficiency and compactness
|Plate Heat Exchanger Performance At Shell & Tube Pressures
Tranter’s SUPERMAX® and MAXCHANGER® Welded Plate Heat Exchangers require only a fraction of the space of the equivalent shell & tube exchangers. Turbulent flow induced by the corrugated and dimpled plate patterns produces high heat transfer rates. This high efficiency allows Tranter to design compact exchangers with a 1ºC (2°F) temperature approach. Another benefit is the small hold-up volume which offers fast start-up times and close following of process changes. The advantages of the SUPERMAX and MAXCHANGER
exchangers can be applied to challenging applications involving liquids, gases, steam and two-phase mixtures. This includes aggressive media, organic solvents, steam heaters and as interchangers which are beyond the capability of traditional gasketed plate & frame heat exchangers. In addition to efficiency,
the units offer cost effectiveness and minimal maintenance.
SUPERMAX®—For Amazing Efficiency In A Small Footprint
The SUPERMAX® Shell & Plate Heat Exchanger is designed for pressures to 200 barg (2900 psig) and at temperatures up to 900°C (1650°F) for standard range units. Extended range units are available for higher temperature and pressure applications. Turbulent flow, even at low velocities, enables stable capacity
