The CALORPLAST thermoplastic shell and tube heat exchanger is an external heat exchanger utilizing a traditional design for cooling, heating, condensing or evaporating of high-purity media.
The all-plastic heat exchanger features a compact design and a very high heat transfer capability due to the use of thin-walled, non-fouling tubes. The tube bundle, with its tube sheets, is welded or bolted within the shell of the heat exchanger, allowing the use of many different types of material for the design of the heat exchanger.
Pressure drop though the exchanger is low at approx. 1.45 to 7.25 psi. Due to the choice of material, this heat exchanger is resistant to almost all corrosive media, (low maintenance costs).
The heat exchangers are easy to clean with liquids and, depending on the material, also low pressure steam.
