Why Tranter For HVAC? Technology On The Front End

And Service On The Back End


With so many choices for HVAC heat exchangers, what makes Tranter Plate Heat Exchangers and Tranter Shell & Plate Heat Exchangers stand out? First, it’s our technology, with many plate styles and sizes for a precise thermal length and a finely tuned solution. Time after time, our solution involves a smaller unit with fewer plates than our competitors, which saves you money. Second, it’s after-sale OEM service from our worldwide network of Service Centers.

Consider these Tranter Plate Heat Exchanger advantages:

  • Practical for close approach duties, with High “U” or “K” values and temperature approaches (1°C or 2°F) for rapid response, high efficiency and maximum possible heat recovery

  • Can be fitted with pressure breakers for quiet, safe and damage-free operation

  • Unique turbulent flow design for fouling resistance, especially important with cooling tower water

  • Immediate availability (made in factories strategically located worldwide)

  • Compact and light weight for easy retrofits in existing mechanical spaces

  • Expandability and easy servicing within its own footprint

  • Design flexibility makes them ideally suited for a wide variety of applications

 Tranter Plate Heat Exchangers for HVAC are found in sites such as:

  • Municipal district heating/cooling

  • Institutional or campus district heating/cooling

  • High-rise buildings

  • Industrial facilities
