Compact Size, Light Weight And Easy Maintenance Make Tranter Plate Heat Exchangers Ideal For Marine Thermal Systems


There is no room for compromise when the sea is rough and the harbor far away. And inefficiency can be as dangerous to your bottom line as unreliable thermal systems are to safety. That is why Tranter specializes in reliable, compact, and efficient plate heat exchangers that are easy to service and maintain. This, combined with our extensive experience and solid technical expertise within marine and industrial applications, makes us a reliable partner for Plate Heat Exchangers, Shell & Plate Heat Exchangers and Prime Surface Heat Exchangers.

Why fill up engineering spaces and burden topsides with heavy, bulky equipment, when efficiency and economy are readily available with Tranter plate heat exchangers? Consider these exclusive plate heat exchanger advantages:

  • Higher “U” and “K” values and close temperature approaches (1°C or 2°F) for rapid response and high efficiency

  • Unique turbulent flow design for fouling resistance

  • Immediate availability (made in factories strategically located worldwide)

  • Compact and light weight for lower cost in higher alloys such as titanium

  • Expandability and easy servicing

  • Design flexibility makes them ideally suited for a wide variety of applications

  • Prime surface banks surpass field-fabricated linear pipe coil in initial cost economy and thermal performance

The advantages of Tranter Plate Heat Exchangers are found on:

  • Tankers of all classes

  • Bulk carriers

  • Container vessels

  • Drilling ships

  • Offshore rigs

  • ATBs

  • Naval vessels; transport, support and combatant types

  • FPSO vessels
