Hydrocarbon Engineering,

Available for global energy intensive markets, the NovusBloc™ welded plate heat exchanger encompasses a Tranter premium design concept offering a boost in heat exchange performance and durability for these processes.

As confirmed by extensive heat transfer, plus both pressure and temperature fatigue qualification testing, the NovusBloc offers potential for reduced unit size, weight and footprint with increased durability in a wide range of applications.

The patented design offers unique features and benefits. The NovusBloc is fully accessible for mechanical cleaning and visual inspection, making it particularly suitable for applications with high fouling tendency.

The NovusBloc comes in four different models, depending on the user’s heat transfer duty requirements.

It is able to withstand tough design conditions and the heat transfer plates can be pressed in many different materials. The product is available for the design specifications tabulated below:

The NovusBloc range incorporates unique premium design approaches in the following areas:

  • Novel plate design, which minimises unnecessary additional pressure loss at the fluid inlet of each pass and enhances the weld quality of the plate welds.
  • Highly innovative column lining design, which enables the lining to move naturally when exposed to high temperatures, thus minimising failures due to thermal shocks by providing a uniform stress contour and reducing overall stress concentration in the lining.

In summary, the NovusBloc is a premium product for your heat transfer needs!
