TRANTER Shell & Plate Welded Heat Exchanger
Extending Capability Into Even Tougher Duties with Welded Heat Exchangers

The Tranter Shell & Plate Heat Exchanger is designed as a performance upgrade over shell & tube, block-type welded and brazed aluminum heat exchangers. The exchanger offers high thermal performance with compact size, similar to that of gasketed plate heat exchangers, with low hold-up volume and low installed weight, especially when filled.
Now in its second generation of refinement, today’s Shell & Plate Heat Exchanger is the fruit of Tranter’s Welded Competence Center in Artern, Germany. Combining field experience with design input from Tranter’s global R&D operations, this test bed of advanced manufacturing processes and equipment has introduced extended-capability refinements.

 

 

TRANTER Shell & Plate Welded Heat Exchanger
Supermax for amazing efficiency in a small footprint

The SUPERMAX® Shell & Plate Heat Exchanger is designed for pressures to 200 barg (2900 psig) and at temperatures up to 900°C (1650°F) for standard range units. Extended range units are available for higher temperature and pressure applications.Turbulent flow, even at low velocities, enables stable capacity regulation and minimizes fouling. In refrigeration and cryogenic service, the exchangers require a low refrigerant charge. They are also resistant to freezing because of high fluid turbulence induced by the corrugated plate pattern. SUPERMAX wide temperature/pressure ratings offer good performance with natural refrigerants such as ammonia and carbon dioxide.Fluids can undergo phase change on either the plate or shell side. The SUPERMA X is particularly suited to applications having a large flow imbalance, allowing higher flow rates on the shell side. The SUPERMAX can be installed horizontally or vertically; horizontal installation is recommended for condensing/evaporating/boiling applications.
MaxChanger – The Design Engineer’s Friend
MAXCHANGER single- and multiple-pass designs fit virtually any application requirement. The unique geometry of the patented MAXCHANGER’s variable interspaces produce extremely high “U” values. Channels formed between the specially dimpled, welded plates direct the two heat transfer media countercurrently through alternate paths for maximum efficiency, immediate thermal response and a close temperature approach capability of less than 1°C (2°F).
Constructed for long life cycles
The 1-mm (0.039-in.) thick dimpled heat exchanger plates are sandwiched between top and bottom plates specified to withstand the design pressure. Special spacers separate the plates, isolating the channels and establishing countercurrent flow. Four corner angles (or half-pipes) are welded to side plates, top and bottom plates and to the heat exchange plate points, forming inlet and outlet headers.
The corner angle fittings or corner half-pipe fittings, enable inlets and outlets—NPT or flanged—to be located in any number of configurations for maximum flexibility in tight spaces.
