Dimpleflo Modubloc Sludge Heat Exchangers are ideal for heating and cooling of sludge and slurries containing particles. Most of Australia’s capital city sewerage treatment plants use Dimpleflo Sludge Heat Exchangers for processing thickened sludge in the anaerobic digestion process.
As with all Dimpleflo Double Pipe configurations the single fluid flow path ensures viscous and fouling liquids are processed without blockages and costly maintenance procedures and can withstand high pressures and temperatures.
The dimple profile on both the inner tube and jacket of the heat exchanger, increase turbulence to substantially enhance heat transfer coefficients. An added benefit that has been proven over many decades, is that the dimple profile minimises fouling. The highly turbulent flow provides effective in-place cleaning and greatly increases run times between cleaning cycles, compared to traditional plain tube heat exchangers.
Dimpleflo Sludge Heat Exchangers are configured for specific requirements, ensuring a compact design that is tailored to each application.
