Improving Thermal Control Of Water-Based Coolants In Rolling Mills

CHALLENGE

Improve uptime and durability of heat exchangers used to cool coolants sprayed on the aluminum reducing rolls to maintain proper temperatures.

SOLUTION

Tranter SUPERCHANGER® Plate And Frame Heat Exchangers or SUPERMAX® Shell And Plate Heat Exchangers.

RESULTS

  • Excellent heat transfer rates.
  • Good temperature control.
  • Corrosion resistance overcomes intermixing problems often experienced with shell and tube units in this duty.

Tranter heat exchangers remove heat from closed-loop coolants sprayed on the rolls in various metal rolling mills to maintain proper temperatures. Their excellent heat transfer rates offer good temperature control.
