Prime Surface Heat Exchangers
Consider For Banks
Configure PLATECOIL as banks…you’ll benefit from lower engineering, fabricating and maintenance costs. In tanks, compact PLATECOIL banks give you twice the surface area in a given space, at half the weight as equivalent pipe coil. PLATECOIL banks’ rigid design requires fewer supports, requiring less labor for installation and making replacement easier.
In tanks or vats, the PLATECOIL planar shape induces a “chimney effect” for natural convection circulation and improved heating uniformity. Countercurrent flow circuits maximize heat transfer, while wide interspaces and open turns effectively pass solids or fibers. PLATECOIL panels can efficiently recover heat from dirty wastewater, reducing thermal pollution. Cleaning is much simpler, because entire units are removable without dumping the solution.
PLATECOIL heat recovery banks in wet gas and liquid streams cut industry fuel bills significantly. At the same time, they knock out troublesome vapor plumes and reduce thermal load on effluent plants. Wet flue gas streams as low as 67°C (150°F) are a candidate for big savings from PLATECOIL heating banks.
PLATECOIL banks can also be configured within a shell as a shell & plate exchanger where other heat exchangers are impractical because of fouling, particle plugging and/or high viscosity. These units are finding success as sulfur remelters, asphalt emulsion coolers and thermosyphon and kettle reboilers.
PLATECOIL Heat Recovery Banks can be furnished with a mounting flange for easy installation in flue ductwork.
