WATLOW company has offered its new HELIMAX ultra-efficient electric heat exchanger along with Continuous Helical Flow Technology which helps in reducing the coking and fouling typically associated with standard heat exchangers, a press release cited.
The statement elaborated that the reduction of coking and fouling rates will minimize heat exchanger maintenance intervals so that downtime can be decreased.
HELIMAX with Continuous Helical Flow Technology enables ultra-high heat transfer rates that lowers the skin and shell temperature rise above the process fluid and offers the ability to push the limit on high outlet temperature applications.
In addition, it minimizes fluid bypass assuring tighter sheath temperature control and provides smaller shell diameters. As a result, high pressures can often be handled with thinner shell walls or without resorting to expensive exotic materials.
“Watlow is excited to now offer the new HELIMAX heat exchanger to our customers. HELIMAX’s Continuous Helical Flow Technology improves the velocity profile on the heating elements, allowing better heat transfer and flow rates improving overall system performance. This technology also reduces coking and fouling which keeps a system up and running. All of this in a smaller profile… the product is a win for any application requiring a heat exchanger.” Dennis Long, director of strategic marketing said.
