Cataract Steel Industries is ASME certified, and all designs are based on Tubular Exchanger Manufacturers Association standards.
This enables the Compabloc to pack as much heat transfer capability into just 3 cubic metres as an equivalent, conventional tubular exchanger with a heal transfer area of 1000[m.sup.2].
"If refiners employed Plate Heat Exchnagers instead of tubular exchangers, the difference in efficiency levels (thermal efficiency is 200-300% greater in sugar applications) means that they could employ lower grade heat sources such as condensate or low pressure vapour in place of expensive steam for many parts of the process."
Tubular exchangers, where the product flow is more straightforward than plate-and-frames, can handle high incoming pressure more easily.
