A custom heat exchanger design allows a salsa manufacturer to effectively complete process cooling of the product and expeditiously clean-in-place between batches and shifts. California-based Southwest Thermal Technology was approached by one of its OEM customers to provide a shell-and-tube cooler to chill a client’s salsa prior to bottling. The request was more challenging than it sounds. Because of the viscosity of the salsa — around 2,000 cP while warm and much thicker at 9,165 cP when...
The Helpful Heat Exchanger Experts
Fall and winter present the perfect opportunity to address any maintenance concerns.
As more consumers seek out raw milk, instances of foodborne illness linked to raw milk consumption are going up.
A few aspects of this are ensuring your process is designed to prevent and detect potential contamination and that your equipment is adequate for the job and thoroughly cleaned.
When the pressure drop is well below the allowable maximum, the heat exchanger may not be reaching its full heat transfer rate potential.
Choosing the right heat transfer fluid for your operation involves many considerations. Here are some key details to know about HTFs.
Two of the most common types of expansion joints are metal expansion bellows (sometimes called packless expansion joints) and packed slip expansion joints.
Shell and tube heat exchangers used for pharmaceutical condensers should be easily cleaned and resistant to contamination and corrosion.
Condensing economizers have a place in virtually every industry. However, they often require highly specialized design and are fabricated to meet the specific needs of one facility’s operations.
Pressure drop is one of the most important design considerations before fabricating a shell and tube heat exchanger.
