Plate Heat Exchanger for Chemical Processing

Now you can enjoy plate heat exchanger performance and efficiency at shell & tube-class temperature and pressure. Tranter plate heat exchanger technology enables you to improve both capacity and thermal control within a compact footprint. Plate exchanger size and weight efficiency also handles erosive and corrosive streams with higher alloys at an attractive price. Through long maintenance cycles, you'll enjoy reduced downtime and boiler fuel savings in energy recovery, reactor thermal control, condensing, vapor separation and other duties.

Plate Technology Flexibility Gives You More Control Under Changing Conditions

Do more with less. Plate heat exchanger technology answers today's challenge for chemical processing. Plate heat transfer efficiency promises and delivers benefits in:

  • Size and weight efficiency helping to accommodate capacity expansions

  • Compact size helping make higher alloy units more affordable, with shorter lead-times

  • Low hold-up volume with rapid thermal response, for precise process control throughout load swings

  • Extremely high heat transfer rates and practical temperature approaches as low as 1°C (2°F)

  • High internal turbulence, reducing fouling and scaling tendencies for longer maintenance cycles

  • Highly configurable thermal length for outstanding performance in boiling, evaporating and condensing duties

  • A rapidly growing portfolio of diverse, successful CPI applications spanning commodity, life science, specialty and consumer chemical segments, signifying a maturing technology base

Within our CPI market section see a sampling of just some of the segments and applications in which our exchangers are improving processes and economy. See why leading CPI companies choose Tranter plate heat exchangers and shell and plate heat exchangers for high-performance plate technology that optimizes thermal and hydraulic design in difficult duties such as:

  • Reactor thermal control (internal/external)

  • Reboilers (kettle or thermosyphon)

  • Corrosive/erosive fluid thermal control

  • Multi-level distillation condensers-coolers/preheaters

  • Flue gas heat recovery banks

  • Waste gas treatment heat recovery

  • Wash water heating systems

  • Waste water heat recovery

  • Solids drying (drums and shells)

  • Closed cooling loops protecting critical equipment
