Heat exchangers provide high heat transfer coefficients

February 2, 2009
Equipped with streamlined Kenics Static Mixer elements, Kenics Heat Exchangers are the most efficient units available today, according to the manufacturer. These high-performance thermal units offer maximum transfer rates even with highly viscous, difficult-to-process materials. Used in a wide range of process applications, the heat exchangers require less space, less energy and less time to process than other designs. Kenics Heat Exchangers provide heat transfer rates of three to seven times greater than conventional empty tubes. Other features of the product are: design pressures to 10,000 psi; construction from all metals and alloys; special connections and fittings; X-ray, hydro, dye penetrant, and halogen testing; and ASME/TEMA compliance.
