Enerquip to attend
Shell and tube heat exchangers are important to the pharmaceutical industry. They are used to ensure medicines and their liquid components are safe before entering the market. This process is done by circulating the product through the sterile tube side of the heat exchanger while introducing a heating medium on the shell side. This will heat the medicine according to Current Good Manufacturing Practices.
These direct heat exchanger applications are important to the pharmaceutical industry, as are indirect heating and cooling applications like CIP heating, clean steam generation, reactor jacket heating, vapor condensing and biowaste neutralization.
