The Experts in Pharmaceutical Heat Exchangers
Enerquip is proud to be a leading supplier to the pharmaceutical industry, and understands that our high quality and attention to detail help our customers in their mission to cure illnesses and save lives. We take our role in this process seriously, demonstrated by the highest level of craftsmanship, rigorous in-process inspections and testing and full traceability of our materials.
Our experts have the knowledge and experience to design your pharmaceutical grade heat exchangers to ensure efficient heat exchange, while increasing productivity, minimizing production costs, and keeping compliance in your industry.
Our engineers participate in ASME-BPE committee meetings to ensure that our talented craftsmen are leading the industry in hygienic design and fabrication. Our cGMP’s and strict tolerances lower the risk of contamination and provide peace-of-mind to our customers.
Enerquip exchangers are fabricated with multiple measures to ensure proper hygienic design and production. All of our pharma grade exchangers are made with double tubesheets to prevent cross-contamination of process fluids between the shell and tubes. The gap between the tubesheets helps to minimize stress on the tube to tubesheet expansions, allows for leak detection, and meets TEMA standards for radial thermal expansion.
During fabrication, we roller expand the tubes into double-grooved tubesheets, seal weld the tubes in place, and polish the tubesheet surface to the specified finish, enhancing stability and contamination prevention.
Enerquip’s return pockets and weep slots are fully radiused and polished to enhance cleanability and drainability. Our expert designers have designed our O-Ring to allow exposure to cleaning fluids, whereas many manufacturers install O-Rings in separate grooves that cannot be easily cleaned.
Our exchangers are pitched to encourage gravity draining of both sides of the unit, and the incorporation of weep slots in pass partitions helps to facilitate draining of fluids. Due to surface tension in highly polished tubes, air or heat may be required to fully drain exchangers.
Enerquip polishes the exterior of our exchangers and insulation jackets to 40Ra, giving your equipment not only a more sanitary look and feel, but also enhancing its cleanability. Our in-house electropolishing capabilities ensure your equipment gets the best surface finish available, while allowing us to control cost, quality and lead-time. Our in-house passivation capabilities also ensure your equipment is clean, degreased and more passive to corrosion, and ready for installation when it arrives on site.
When customers request insulation for their exchangers, Enerquip uses a Thermalux moisture barrier, covered with non-asbestos, chloride free Inswool ceramic insulation material. Our polished schedule 10 pipe jackets are fully welded and robust and are polished to beautiful 40Ra finish. Nozzle covers can be either tack welded stainless sheet or PipeTite boots.
