Kelvion launches new heat exchanger plates

Published by

With its new NW150L stainless steel heat exchanger plates, Kelvion has complemented its range of heat exchanger plates for viscous and particle-containing media by introducing this new product in the lower range.

The NW models have a wider plate gap than those in the NT series. This enables efficient heat treatment, with only slight pressure drop, of viscous media and of liquids with particle diameters up to 5 mm.

The extremely wide herringbone plate corrugation, with a gap width of 10 mm, ensures highly turbulent flow at all points of the plate, which in turn counters fouling. As a result, the new plates are well suited for the production of bioethanol, in treatment of industrial wastewater, and in petrochemical processes.

PosLoc assembly means that re-assembling the heat exchangers after cleaning or inspection work is easy. It ensures optimal centering of the plate pack, which positively affects the service life of the gaskets. The new NW150L is compatible with the frames of the extensively used NT150L series. As a result, users with NT150L plates of the same size – which require cleaning more frequently owing to particle fouling – can change to the new plate without great expense.
