Hot Condensate Cooling Recycles Maximum Heat To Desalination


Upgrade capacity and performance of heat exchangers used to cool hot condensate; make use of recovered heat to provide energy for desalination system.


Tranter SUPERCHANGER® Plate Heat Exchangers.


  • Compact–fits into 20–50% of a shell and tube footprint including service and maintenance space.
  • Lower metal mass and reduce hold-up volume for greater stability.
  • Higher heat transfer coefficients for improved heat exchange performance, faster response.
  • They can handle temperature approaches of less than 1°C (2°F), with “U” or “K “ values 3 to 6 times higher than shell and tube exchangers.
  • Lower operating costs through reduced energy consumption.
  • Lower purchase price, especially with higher alloys.
  • Faster delivery time.
  • Reduced maintenance dead space by eliminating need to pull tube bundle.

Tranter Plate Heat Exchangers with titanium plates use surplus heat to preheat sea water feeding the desalination system.
