The heat exchanger is a device used to transfer the heat from one medium to another. The heat exchangers are not only used to heat but majorly are used for cooling the substances and are used by the processing industries to transfer the heat. The exchanger separates the substances by a solid wall so that they can be prevented from mixing. It is majorly used by the waste water treatment industry, refrigeration systems, wine-brewery industries, and petroleum industries.
The main features of heat exchangers are flow configuration, construction method, heat transfer mechanism. We are the heat exchanger equipment supplier to meet the different processing industrial requirements. We make sure to meet the industrial requirements for all the machinery, whether it’s an evaporator, crystallizer, or any other processing machinery. We are capable of providing the utmost trustable heat exchanger available as we are the heat exchanger maker and hence are the most suitable option to meet our customer’s processing requirements.
Optimization of the heat exchanger design
The heat exchanger optimization design can be understood at three levels are first, to identify the heat exchanger that can meet the process specifications at the lowest primary cost; secondly, to identify the heat exchanger that operates with satisfactory over the lifetime of a plant with process specifications; and, thirdly, to identify heat exchanger and auxiliary elements to meet process specification with the minimum total amount for the process that includes utility cost and lost production.
Meeting process specification means that the heat exchanger should be capable of desired changes if required so in the thermal conditions of the process streams within the acceptable pressure drops. It should be able to bear any kind of mechanical pressure of transport, manufacturing, installation, operating under normal and powerful conditions that could be emergency forced shut down and during maintenance, and should be capable of lesser effects during fouling and corrosion. It should be sufficiently flexible to make required changes in process conditions in service stream temperatures such as normal fouling transients, diurnal and seasonal changes. The heat exchanger must be able to support with minimum downtime during cleaning, repair, or replacement of short-lived substances such as tubes and gaskets. Considering all these points, the heat exchanger should be as less costly as possible.
In retrofit applications, the heat exchanger might need to meet certain special requirements such as weight, diameter, length, or inventory standards. There could be certain special requirements during manufacturing or the capacity and experience of the maintenance and operating personnel.
Heat Exchanger’s Networking Process
Heat exchanger network synthesis is the calculation of a cost effective network that exchanges the heat among a set of process streams where if any heating and cooling are not satisfied by exchange among these streams they must be provided with an external utility such as cooling water, hot oil, refrigerants, steam, etc. For designing a network the base heat exchanger uses is thermodynamic pinch analysis. The pinch technology is used to investigate the energy integration and the efficient design of heat exchanger networks.
Alaqua Inc is the heat exchanger equipment supplier worldwide along with evaporator, crystallizer, solvent recovery systems, distillation equipment, and spray dryers. The heat exchangers are majorly used by the waste water treatment, refrigeration systems, wine-brewery industry, and petroleum industry.
