Inproheat Industries Ltd. is a longtime representative of Tranter Inc. in Western Canada. Working as a team, Inproheat and Tranter Inc. work to provide new equipment and aftermarket support to customers.
Tranter Inc. leads the way in heat exchanger technology – tailoring the design to meet the needs of the customer.
To offer a better understanding of these products, let’s take a closer look at these heat exchangers with special attention to those manufactured and serviced by Tranter Inc.
A heat exchanger – What is it?
To begin, we need to look at what heat exchangers are.
At its core, a heat exchanger is best explained by its primary goal. This is the facilitation of the transfer of heat from one individual application flow to another. Furthermore, heat exchangers are unique because the transfer must take place without any direct contact between the two applications.
On the subject of transfer efficiency, it is based primarily on its configuration and the development of the flow relationship between the two applications. With that in mind, heat exchanger models come with configuration options of flow channels, port or nozzle connection, as well as various design and size options.
What are the application flows?
The most common application flows used in heat exchangers are:
- Liquid to liquid cooling applications.
- Steam to liquid applications.
- Liquid to steam cooling applications.
- Gas to gas applications.
- Liquid to refrigerant applications.
- Slurry, Emulsion, and produced water applications
Naturally, the intended types of heat transfer and flow applications will determine which type of heat exchanger is suitable for the task.
Of course, this leads to our next question…
What Types of Heat Exchangers are there?
Heat exchangers fall into a number of different categories. We’ll examine a few different kinds in individual posts:
- First, we’ll cover Plate Coil Heat Exchangers.
- After that, we’ll look at Plate and Frame-Gasketed Heat Exhangers.
- Finally, we’ll discuss All-Welded, Brazed and Semi-Welded Heat Exchangers.
