Is Your Fouled Heat Exchanger Costing You?

Fouling is the deposition and accumulation of undesirable materials such as scale, algae, suspended solids and insoluble salts on the internal or external surfaces of processing equipment, such as heat exchangers. Heat Exchangers are process equipment in which heat is continuously transferred from a hot to a cold fluid directly through a heat transfer surface that separates the two fluids, such as a plate or tube.

Servicing a Welded (BLOC) Plate Heat Exchanger

The welded (BLOC) plate heat exchangers contain more robust plates with greater thickness and do not have standard PHE rubber gaskets. This different design allows higher temperature and pressure ranges. Compact in design, they still pack a punch with outstanding heat transfer coefficients, even under the most stringent applications. Heat Exchangers WA provide servicing of welded (BLOC) plate heat exchangers, having serviced several COMPA-BLOC from mineral processing plants.

Cooler Savings in the Scorching Heat

The Pilbara region is a beautiful part of North West Australia, where red earth and deep rocky canyons contrast the dazzling white beaches and untouched coral gardens. The Pilbara is commonly referred to as the ‘engine room’ of Australia, home to a massive mining and processing industry of crude oil, natural gas, iron ore and salt. The climate can be harsh and the heat scorching, with an annual average high temperature of 32 °C. Due to the high ambient temperature year round, it is crucial that the cooling tower equipment operates at peak efficiency to sustain the throughput and revenue of processing plants.
