Why Are Compact Plate HEs Such A Good Choice For Retrofits?

Many facilities have been built using shell and tube heat exchangers. When time for expansion comes, whether involving HVAC or process thermal systems, sizing and installing a larger shell and tube exchanger is expensive or impossible because the larger unit: Causes impossible-to-resolve piping conflicts with existing systems Exceeds the load capacity of support structures Has […]

How Heat Exchanger Performance Affects Building Comfort, Efficiency and Process Control

It is important that your thermal systems respond quickly to control signals, which generally come from thermostats or building automation systems, or from process control systems. Responding slowly can affect your business many ways: Excessive energy consumption Uncomfortable indoor environment incidents that are slow to correct Under- or over-processed products Variable quality Fast-responding heat exchangers […]

Reduce Fuel And Maintenance Costs With Plate Heat Exchangers

All heat exchangers transfer heat energy between two or more fluid media contained in channels. These channels scale or foul over time, accompanied by declining performance and higher fuel bills. If your facility uses old technology shell and tube heat exchangers, you will have higher fuel bills, plus a more frequent cleaning burden than with […]

How Does Tranter OEM Multi-Brand Service Reduce Overhead Costs?

Whatever brands of plate heat exchangers are installed in your facility, they originally started up delivering OEM nameplate performance. Tranter Service Centers want to ensure that you continue to enjoy nameplate performance. Our fast, economical and reliable service means minimal downtime for your exchanger and reliable protection for your equipment. That’s why we offer OEM […]

Why Are Plates Designed To Reduce Fouling And Scaling So Important?

Clean heat exchange surfaces in both channels are critical for the controllability and energy efficiency of a heat exchanger. Fouled surfaces result in complaints from your employees. Typical problems include interior comfort complaints, off-grade product from lack of temperature control, excessive flash steam vapor, escalating utility bills and related troubles. Some problems are minor but […]

Why Specify Shell And Plate Instead of Shell And Tube?

The Tranter SUPERMAX® Shell And Plate welded heat exchanger enables you to obtain the thermal efficiency and compactness of plate and frame heat exchangers in elevated pressure/temperature applications. Until recently, heat exchangers in elevated pressure/temperature or corrosive media applications had to be shell and tube units. This meant constant tradeoffs in thermal efficiency, material mass […]

Why Specify Plate And Frame Instead Of Shell And Tube?

SUPERCHANGER® Plate And Frame Heat Exchangers transfer heat more efficiently than shell and tube units in most applications, due in large measure to the turbulent flow created by the corrugated patterns of their plates. They use only 20% to 50% of space required by shell and tube units including service footprint and are much lighter […]
