This unique and innovative technology eliminates the large channel cover flange and bolting of other conventional high-pressure exchanger designs. A special threaded ring hold the channel cover and contain channel pressure. Designed and manufactured with the closest tolerances and highest attention to detail for reliability, easy maintenance and enhanced safety. Detailed design has been improved and optimized over the years, even on minor details that can affect reliability and maintenance.
APPLICATIONS & RELIABILITY
Suitable for high-temperature, high-pressure applications with rich hydrogen streams in hydrocracking and hydrotreating gas compression, ammonia/urea synthesis, methanol and other such processes. Both shell and tube sides at high pressure (H/H type) and for applications with high pressure only on the tube side (H/L type).
Easy to operate and comparatively easy to dismantle and reassemble, which results in more reliable operation and shorter shutdown time. Lower capital expenditure, easier maintenance, shorter shutdown time means higher plant reliability, lower total life-cycle cost.
