enerquip, a wisconsin company that specializes in a wide variety of shell and tube heat exchangers, recently added a new line of compact heat exchangers to meet the growing demand from customers with low flow-rate applications.
enerquip has been one of the leading providers of heating and cooling equipment for production plants and the oem's and system integrators that support them.
the company crafts stainless steel and high alloy shell and tube heat exchangers of the highest quality, with delivery lead-times that are half of the industry standard. the size of enerquip heat exchangers can vary from the length of a loaf of bread to the size of a school bus.
"until now, we haven't had an efficient solution for product flow rates from 1 to 10 gallons per minute," explained ron herman, director of sales & marketing.
"these scaled down versions of our exchangers utilize smaller tubes that keep tube side velocities high for better heat transfer, while avoiding problems with bypass seen in larger exchangers when they are used at low flow rates."
available in both u-tube and straight tube designs, these space-saving exchangers are easy to clean, are high quality and built to last a long time. enerquip's compact exchangers are also asme code stamped, to provide customers with peace of mind that their product and their people will be safe during production.
the sanitary version also meets the rigorous 3-a sanitary standard, and the pharmaceutical models are more asme-bpe compliant than other low flow coil models and other current designs in the market.
this new product line is perfect for small batch processes, point-of-use streams, or r&d or pilot scale applications where a smaller compact exchanger would be an advantage.
