Where particular product information is required but not readily available, Teralba Industries has an in-house, state-of-the-art rheological testing facility to process and record data on specific products.

An industrial heat exchanger is designed to exchange heat from one fluid to another. Most industrial applications use heat exchangers for cooling purposes: in addition to transferring heat to or from process fluids, they form a vital component of industrial HVAC systems. This heat transfer equipment is often used to maintain volatile chemicals at safe temperatures.

The most effective heat transfer system for your company will depend on the application for which you need it. Scraped surface heat exchangers are often the best solution for extremely demanding and viscous applications. Accu-Therm plate heat exchangers are an excellent choice to heat or cool clear fluids such as pool water or wine. For applications where space is at a premium, compact Coilflo heat exchangers are recommended. For high heat transfer rates with low-pressure drops, Dimpleflo tube heat exchangers are likely to be the most effective. Temp-plate immersion heat exchangers are ideal for applications where high flow rates are required.

Heat transfer heat exchanger systems are used in many industries, including food & beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical process and manufacturing. In the food & beverage industry, a well-designed heat transfer system can help to reduce overall energy consumption and harmful emissions. In the pharmaceutical industry, sealed heat exchangers cool electrical equipment without compromising hygiene standards. Many companies use heat exchangers for heat recovery applications involving waste water and other waste fluids in the environmental sector.

Different heat exchangers work differently; some heat exchanger manufacturers use their proprietary designs and technologies. Still, they all have one thing in common: they transfer heat by passing a hot fluid and a cool fluid over a metal surface, one on either side. The heat from the warmer fluid is transferred via the metal surface to the cooler fluid.

Heat transfer equipment is widely used in process industry facilities, with Dimpleflo heat exchangers and Accu-Therm plate heat exchangers being among the most commonly seen types. The flexible design, efficiency and reliability of these two heat exchanger types ensure their continued popularity.

Assuming no catastrophic failure exists, a heat exchanger can certainly be repaired. At Teralba Industries, we have an experienced repair and refurbishment team of highly qualified engineers who can repair all types of heat transfer equipment.

Recommended maintenance intervals depend on the type of heat transfer system, usage patterns and operating temperature. Common maintenance tasks include gasket replacement, pressure cleaning and hydrostatic testing. If you don’t have the necessary in-house expertise, Teralba offers a professional maintenance service for all heat exchanger systems.

This depends on the application and level of fouling that may occur. You should have your heat exchanger professionally maintained and cleaned to minimise any build-up on the heat transfer surfaces. A check every 6 months should be sufficient for plate heat exchangers however, tubular Dimpleflo heat exchangers can go for years without cleaning. When your heat transfer heat exchanger fails to achieve the correct product temperature, it’s time to have it checked & cleaned.

Heat transfer efficiency is usually measured to assess a heat exchanger’s performance regarding how much energy is lost and how much gets used during the heating process. If you want to know more about heat exchanger efficiency and how each system differs, contact our heat exchanger manufacturers.

While recuperative heat exchanger equipment usually has separate flow paths for each different fluid put into the exchanger, a regenerative heat exchanger has an individual path through which hot and cold fluids can be passed through alternately. The type of heat exchanger system you require depends on your industry and objectives.
