Our aluminium plate-fin heat exchangers (PFHEs) are key components in many process plants. Their compact footprint helps save space and costs in a wide range of facilities, including air separation plants, petrochemical and gas treatment plants as well as natural gas and helium liquefaction plants.
Our PFHEs are brazed in vacuum furnaces without using flux. This means that all cores are delivered completely free from corrosive residue and post-brazing cleaning steps are not required.
Highlights of our PFHEs:
Proven vacuum brazing technology
High thermal efficiency through variable fin configurations
Aluminium alloys for optimum heat exchange between clean gases and liquids at low temperatures
Simultaneous heat exchange between multiple streams
Suitable for single-phase and mixed-phase fluids
Arrangement of streams in counter-flow, cross-flow or flow combinations
Wide range of fin types with different surface areas for optimised equipment design
Superior computer software for thermal and hydraulic design
