Quality Industrial Processing Equipment

Teralba Industries is actively involved in working with clients throughout the application process to determine best practice and technical specifications that ensure effectiveness and maximum efficiency gains once products are installed on-site.

The engineering staff conceptualise, design and manufacture products for use in industrial environments, utilising high grade stainless steel to provide corrosion resistance and robustness within the confines of the processing requirements.

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.

FAQ

An industrial heat exchanger is designed to exchange heat from one fluid to another. The majority of 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 type of heat transfer equipment is also 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. For extremely demanding applications, scraped surface heat exchangers are often the best solution. To heat or cool clear fluids such as pool water or wine, Accu-Therm plate heat exchangers are an excellent choice. 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 different industries, including food & beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical process and manufacturing industries. 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 are used to cool electrical equipment without compromising hygiene standards. In the environmental sector, many companies use a heat exchanger for heat recovery applications involving waste water and other waste fluids.

Different types of heat exchangers work in different ways and some heat exchanger manufacturers use their own proprietary designs and technologies but they all have one thing in common: they transfer heat by passing a hot fluid and 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 types most commonly seen. The flexible design, efficiency and reliability of these two types of heat exchanger ensure their continued popularity.

Assuming there has not been a catastrophic failure, a heat exchanger can certainly be repaired. At Teralba Industries, we have an experienced repair and refurbishment team that consists 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 expertise in-house, Teralba offers a professional maintenance service for all types of heat exchanger systems.

You should have your heat exchanger professionally maintained and cleaned every 4 to 6 years, though you may want to clean it more frequently if you suspect a problem. When your heat transfer heat exchanger fails to achieve the correct product temperature, it’s time to have it checked/ cleaned.

Condensers are used to convert vapours from a gaseous state into a liquid state while a heat exchanger system usually cools down a heated substance without changing its state. Some of the most popular heat exchanger brands include Coilflo, Accutherm and Dimpleflo. Always invest in a top-rated heat exchanger to minimise cleaning requirements.

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

In the process industries, the most common type of heat exchanger system is the shell-and-tube heat exchanger, which is also used for a wide variety of HVAC equipment. Other popular heat exchangers include scraped surface heat exchangers, plate exchangers and immersion exchangers. Find out which you need by calling us.

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, which hot and cold fluids can be passed through alternately. The type of heat exchanger system you require depends on your industry and objectives.
