The electroplating industry in particular uses a number of tanks in processing plants, used for the surface treatment of components. The process parameters in the tanks and vessels have an essential influence on the quality of the product surface. Critical parameters include not only the acid and metal content, but also the exact temperature control of the solutions. A key factor for homogeneous temperature control is the heat exchanger. Water or steam have proven to be the most reliable and also safest heating and cooling media in this type of production environment.
For the steel pickling industry, it is necessary to steam heat inorganic acids including mixed acids such as hydrofluoric/nitric acid for treatment of steel or titanium. Calorplast PVDF heat exchangers are corrosion resistant in all pickling applications and are designed to utilize minimum space in the tank.
CALORPLAST USA relies on the proven and tested immersion-type heat exchangers for heating and cooling, operated with warm water, steam or a liquid cooling media. With their large heat transfer surface in a relatively small space, the modular heat exchangers insure optimal temperature control in the heating and cooling process.
