Efficient Control Of Waste Liquids Heating And Separation

CHALLENGE

Heat mixed waste in liquid waste treatment tanks to facilitate settling out of solids without fouling the heat exchange surfaces.

SOLUTION

Tranter PLATECOIL Prime Surface Heat Exchangers are versatile products for heating mixed waste, reducing viscosity to facilitate the settling out of solids. Large surface areas, as required, can be provided by a combination of internal banks and external prime surface panels.

RESULTS

  • Very large surface area
  • Configurable as external jackets or internal banks
  • Rapid and uniform heating using different styles for thermal oil or steam
  • Effective circulation thanks to convection heating producing a chimney effect within the tank
