All-thermoplastic heat exchangers

May 18, 2009

Expanded line includes polytetra Series shell and tube heat exchangers. The Series heat exchangers feature an industry leading design that diverts flow to the side of the shell, avoiding high fluid flow forces that may damage the thin-wall internal tubes of the shell and tube style heat exchanger. This design provides longer life and more even heat transfer by spreading the temperature control media beyond the point of its initial concentrated contact area. The all-thermoplastic, corrosion resistant heat exchangers are designed and built per customer specification, and are fully customizable. Available in PFA, E-CTFE, PVDF and PP, the all-thermoplastic heat exchanger is an ideal solution for otherwise corrosive environments. Ideal for electroplating industries and clean chemistry applications such as photovoltaic and semiconductor processes, Polytetra heat exchangers are available in a variety of designs and sizes.
