Calorplast® Heat Exchangers

Calorplast® Immersion-Style (In-Tank) Heat Exchangers

CALORPLAST immersion-style heat exchangers are an all-plastic fabrication, designed for in-tank applications where the heat exchanger is in full contact with both internal and external solutions.

Benefits

 
  • Designed for the heating and cooling of highly corrosive chemicals
  • Consistent performance over the life of the heat exchanger
  • Resists chemical attack at elevated temperatures
  • Full range of cost effective standard catalog sizes and configurations
  • Modular elements allow custom configurations and size options for specific applications
  • Available in PE-RT and PVDF

Applications

Plating and Metal Processing

Utilized in applications for cleaning, etching, pre-plate process, plating and other aggressive chemicals. Made from non-corrosive, non-conductive materials designed specifically to maintain optimal performance in critical applications. Used to cool plating tanks to maintain temperatures when a rectifier load is applied to the plating solution.

Chemical Processing

Commonly used for heating and cooling of acids and caustics, cooling of exothermic reactions, most commonly Sulfuric Acid dilution and evaporator systems. They are also used in applications where metal heat exchangers can be compromised when buildup of solid residue occurs.

Semiconductor and Pharmaceutical

Provides heating and cooling of aggressive chemicals and process cooling water. Superior chemical and thermal qualities allow the heat exchangers to be cleaned or sanitized with pressurized water, saturated steam or other chemical detergents.


Calorplast® Tube-Plate External Hear Exchangers

CALORPLAST tube-plate heat exchangers are an external heat exchanger designed for use in standalone application and are ideally suited for heat transfer between low-viscosity fluids. Tube-plate heat exchangers are suitable for clean and moderately polluted media

Benefits

 
  • Designed for maximum effectiveness with most lowviscosity fluids
  • Modular fabrication allows for scalability to fit specific applications
  • When installed vertically, the design allows for larger heat transfer areas while maintaining a small footprint
  • Can be mounted either horizontally or vertically
  • Available in PE-RT and PVDF

Applications

 

Plating and Metal Processing

Optimized for applications where either internal tank space is limited or where tanks are recirculated by means of an overflowing weir design. Used to cool solutions against temperature rise caused by the application of exothermic and electrical loads.

Aquariums and Sea life Support

Generally used in aquariums and zoo exhibits for heating and cooling of critical aquatic life support systems (ALSS). Provides an excellent non-contaminating solution, as it will not rust or corrode and can be disinfected using controlled amounts of ozone and UV.

Renewable Energy

Frequently found in the cooling of chemicals used in the production of batteries. Also used for the cooling of the highly acidic and corrosive chemicals that are often found in large capacity electrical storage facilities.

CALORPLAST® Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

CALORPLAST shell and tube heat exchangers feature a compact design and a very high heat transfer performance due to the use of thin-walled, non-fouling tubes. With minimal crevices and low levels of extractables; when fabricated in PVDF these heat exchangers are the superior choice for heating and cooling in high-purity water applications.

Benefits

  • Suitable for high-purity (HP) water applications*
  • Very high heat transfer performance with low pressure loss and minimal space requirements
  • Modular fabrication allows for scalability to fit specific applications
  • Can be mounted either horizontally or vertically
  • Available in PVDF and PE-RT

*Special cleaning and packaging available for HP applications

Applications

Chemical Process

Commonly used for heating and cooling of acids and caustics and cooling of exothermic reactions, most commonly Sulfuric Acid dilution. Can be installed as modules in parallel on racks to provide scalable capacity. Non-metallic and low levels of extractables minimize contamination when heating and cooling of refined chemicals is required.

Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

 

Semiconductor and Pharmaceutical

In applications where critical manufacturing equipment must be supplied with cooled ultra-clean water, shell and tube heat exchangers are a superior choice over other commonly available options. Made from PVDF materials and cleaned for use in applications requiring heating and cooling of high-purity water. Superior chemical resistance allows for use with acidic and caustic chemicals. Installed in either horizontal or vertical configurations as needed to minimize space requirements.


CALORPLAST® Gas-Liquid Heat Exchangers

CALORPLAST gas-liquid heat exchangers are manufactured entirely from plastics and are commonly used for condensing of gases to extract aggressive chemicals, as well as for recovering heat from a gas for use in other secondary applications.

Benefits

  • Used in many industries when there is a necessity to extract hazardous fumes from hot exhaust gases
  • Commonly used to exchange heat from a volume of hot gas to a cool liquid solution, or inversely to preheat cool gas utilizing a hot liquid solution
  • Available in PE-RT and PVDF

Applications

Plating, Metal Processing and Chemical Processing

Commonly used for scrubbing of exhaust gases containing aggressive acidic and caustic fumes prior to release into the atmosphere. Can also be used for heat recovery from exhausted gases and exchanged into a liquid media for reuse, with other GF heat exchangers, in secondary heating of other liquid media.

Factory Exhaust/Ventilation

Commonly used in the removal and disposal of CO2 in hot exhaust gases readily found in metal processing factories. Can also be used to heat or cool air for circulation in factories during extreme hot and cold climate changes.

Agriculture and Livestock Farming

Commonly used in the removal of Ammonia and Carbon Dioxide CO2 from indoor shelters and large greenhouses for environmentally friendly disposal. Heated return loop liquid can also be recovered and reused for pre-heating of fresh inlet air, reducing the energy cost of secondary air heating.
