Heat exchangers come in a wide range of sizes. They can be plate heat exchangers, tubular heat exchangers designed for heating and cooling viscous products. Compact and heavy-duty plate heat exchangers offer improved heat transfer, lower plate inventory requirements and a wide range of sizes. Scraped surface heat exchangers can be employed in continuous, closed processing: cooking, cooling, mixing, gelling, heating, slush freezing, crystallizing, plasticizing and aseptic processes.The Shell and Tube (u-tube) is one of the most common type of heat exchanger. It contains a number of parallel utubes inside a shell. Shell Tube heat exchangers are used when a process requires large amounts of fluid to be heated or cooled. Due to their design, shell tube heat exchangers offer a large heat transfer area and provide high heat transfer efficiency.
Alfa Laval, Model Contherm 6×11, vertical, scrape surface heat exchanger system with (6) 80" long stainless steel tubes, (4) for heating and (2) for cooling with amount of product per hour each tube – depending on materials and application. All stainless steel contact parts. Equipped with 10½ ft² of heat transfer area each heating tube with a working temperature range of -30°F to 300°F, has top mounted 10 HP motor drives and 3½"OD / 3" ID product inlet and outlet ports each cylinder. Main top mounted control panel with individual controllers for each tube has motor, speed and temperature start, stop controls with readout and also CIP system controller with start, stop and e-stop controls. Each mounted on individual stainless steel stands. Product enters cylinders through the lower ports and flows upwards through the cylinders simultaneously and media travels in a countercurrent flow through the narrow channel and the rotating scraper blades remove product from cylinder wall to ensure uniform heat transfer to the product and is ideal for food products as well as other applications.
