Inproheat Industries Ltd. is a longtime representative of Tranter Inc. in Western Canada. Working as a team, Inproheat Industries Ltd. and Tranter Inc. work to provide new equipment and aftermarket support to customers.
Tranter Inc.’s signature product is the heat exchanger. With that in mind, we’re sharing knowledge about these sophisticated products with special attention to those manufactured and serviced by Tranter Inc.
Let’s take a closer look at the all-welded, brazed, and semi-welded heat exchangers.
All-Welded Heat Exchangers, Brazed Heat Exchangers, and Semi-Welded Heat Exchangers
This family of heat exchangers is best defined by a series of embossed plates – herringbone or washboard-pattern – with alternating 180 degree turned plates. This intersecting formation of plates creates a heat exchanger that is more efficient in its size and more resistant to pressure, making all of its materials and components part of the process of heat transfer.
Uses for All-Welded Heat Exchangers, Brazed Heat Exchangers, and Semi-Welded Heat Exchangers
The most common types of application flow for these heat exchangers are:
- Gas applications, like gas-to-gas or gas-to-liquid.
- The processing of vegetable oil.
- Cooling, such as liquid to liquid or liquid to steam.
- Thermal oil processing at a high temperature.
- Organic chemical heating (ie. solvents).
- High temperature interchangers.
- Desuperheaters during heat recovery.
- Liquid to refrigerant and its associated components, such as ammonia.
With these application flows in mind, the most common areas for these heat exchangers are:
- Evaporators and refrigerants, air dryers, chillers, and condensers.
- Challenging environment industries and chemical process industries, especially those that harbour corrosive chemicals, extreme temperatures, and high levels of pressure.
- Diesel engines, hydraulic packages, compressors, and chillers.
- The cooling of electrical and mechanical equipment, as well as the cooling of gas, water, and general purpose oil.
The Features and Benefits of All-Welded Heat Exchangers, Brazed Heat Exchangers, and Semi-Welded Heat Exchangers
- The efficient nature of these heat exchangers and their packaging allows them to flourish in a market that seeks compact heat exchangers.
- Compared to other heat exchangers, these ones are highly durable and lightweight.
- Depending on the intended use, a variety of different materials are be used in the creation of the heat exchanger. Among the options available are titanium, stainless steel, and carbon steel plates or shells.
- Additional add-ons are available, such as different nozzles and variations in plate numbers and passes.
