- Reduce frequency of downtime resulting from failure of both heat exchanger channels in caustic solution heater.
- Improve safety for nearby personnel and equipment.
- Reduce steam consumption, conserve space.
A Tranter MAXCHANGER Mini-Welded Plate Heat Exchanger with Monel 400 alloy plates to replace the existing 10-ft-long (3-m) carbon steel shell & tube exchanger.
- Saved space–length only one-third the length of the original shell and tube heat exchanger.
- Reduced size and weight also reduced the materials cost of the high alloy exchanger.
- Corrosion and leakage problems ceased.
