The future of heat transfer technology rests largely with welded plate heat exchangers. Developments in thermal modeling, flow modeling, materials science and robotic welding have combined to accelerate the acceptance of these exchangers in a rapidly expanding list of retrofit and specified new duties.
Among the most exciting of new welded technologies are
shell & plate units in a variety of sizes and configurations. Advanced engineering and quality construction make these units able to withstand thermal cycling and shock, pressure excursions and difficult flows without compromise. At the same time, they are reducing fuel consumption and lengthening maintenance cycles over longer life cycles than conventional heat exchangers can provide.
When shown alongside an equivalent thermal duty shell & tube exchanger, the Tranter Shell & Plate Heat Exchanger demonstrates the true meaning of compact heat transfer.
