Description

The SUPERMAX® Shell And Plate Heat Exchanger is designed as a performance upgrade over shell and tube, block-type welded and brazed aluminum heat exchangers. The unit can overcome footprint constraints, extreme pressures/temperatures, fouling/scaling conditions and corrosive attack with liquids, gases, steam and two-phase mixtures.

REDUCED FOOTPRINT
Compact size and low installed weight, especially when filled

WIDE TEMPERATURE/PRESSURE RATINGS
Good performance with natural refrigerants such as ammonia and carbon dioxide

EXCELLENT THERMAL PERFORMANCE
Close temperature approach of 1ºC (2°F) --similar to that of gasketed plate heat exchangers

OUTSTANDING UPTIME
Highly turbulent flow produces high heat transfer efficiency and limits fouling, or freezing in refrigeration/cryogenic service

SMALL HOLD-UP VOLUME
Fast start-ups and close following of process changes; low refrigerant charges for refrigeration and cryogenic service

TWO-PHASE FLUID FLEXIBILITY
Extended-thermal-length oblong plates expand capabilities to wide-ranging evaporation and condensing applications

RELATED SHELL AND PLATE APPLICATIONS
• Particulate-laden flows: Turbulent flow, even at low velocities, enables stable capacity regulation and minimizes fouling
• Refrigeration and cryogenic service: the exchangers require a low refrigerant charge; are also resistant to freezing because of high fluid turbulence
• Internal phase changes: on either the plate or shell side
• Large flow imbalance: Allow higher flow rates on the shell side
• Installation factors: Can be installed horizontally or vertically
