A California-based company specializing in nutritional drinks such as teas, extracts, cultured beverages and specialty yogurts required sanitary shell-and-tube heat exchangers for a critical product cooling application.
Fürth-based Wolf ButterBack KG is a specialist in Danish pastries, which the company produces for bakeries. The bakeries receive the pastries frozen and ready-to-bake in-house to sell to their customers.
A lack of effective cooling due to heat exchanger failure can cause production losses and unplanned downtime. Fortunately, two common causes of exchanger loss — mechanical failures and chemically induced corrosion — can be prevented.
Heat exchangers are used in many critical processes to protect other valuable manufacturing equipment, optimize energy consumption and reduce associated operating costs. A properly selected, installed and maintained heat exchanger can help enhance the reliability and efficiency of a fluid system.
When choosing which low temperature heat transfer fluid to use for your process, data such as density, viscosity and pour point need to be taken into consideration. In Process Cooling’s annual Cooling Capabilities Chart on Low Temperature Heat Transfer Fluids, we have compiled all of the data you need to choose a fluid for low temperature heat transfer fluid processes.
Using computational software and additive manufacturing to design, test and manufacture heat exchangers for electronics cooling demonstrates how heat sinks can be optimized, thereby improving the performance of consumer electronics.
Just like a car’s radiator keeps its engine from overheating, the heat associated with the processing of electricity must be reduced significantly in order for consumer electronic devices like computers, televisions and smartphones to function properly.
Shell-and-tube designs incorporate fixed or floating tubesheets, fixed or removable tube bundles and expansion joints as needed to create an effective heat transfer vessel. Gain a better understanding of the TEMA types to improve your selection process.
Among the most common types of heat transfer equipment used in industrial applications are the various configurations of shell-and-tube heat exchangers. Suitable for a range of pressure and temperature conditions, shell-and-tube heat exchangers can be robust enough to handle corrosive or even lethal fluids.
The Process Heating & Cooling Show is a conference and tradeshow that will bring together industrial manufacturing and engineering professionals to learn, connect, share and explore all things related to the process heating and cooling industries.
