Stainless Steel Heat Exchangers

Stainless Steel Heat Exchangers

Heat exchangers are devices that realize the heat transfer of liquids or gases. These devices are often used in industrial plants, heating, cooling and air conditioning systems. They save energy by utilizing the temperature difference between two fluids. Heat exchangers can be found in various designs, such as plate, tube or shell-and-tube type, and the material is usually stainless steel, copper or aluminum. Heat exchangers play an important role in industrial processes and are used for efficient heat transfer.

Heat Exchanger Types

Plate Heat Exchanger and Pipe Heat Exchanger are two common types of heat exchangers used in various industrial applications, including sanitary hygiene projects. Both types serve the purpose of transferring heat from one fluid to another without the fluids coming into direct contact.

A plate heat exchanger consists of a series of thin, corrugated plates arranged parallel to each other and held together in a frame. The plates create a series of channels through which the hot and cold fluids flow alternately. Heat is transferred between the fluids through the thin metal plates.

Advantages of Plate Heat Exchangers

  • Compact size compared to other heat exchanger types.
  • High heat transfer efficiency due to large surface area.
  • Easy to disassemble and clean.
  • Suitable for high-pressure and high-temperature applications.
  • Energy-efficient.


Applications of Plate Heat Exchangers

  • HVAC systems
  • Food and beverage processing
  • Chemical processing
  • Refrigeration
  • Sanitary hygiene projects

A pipe heat exchanger, also known as a shell and tube heat exchanger, consists of a series of tubes enclosed within a cylindrical shell. One fluid flows through the tubes while the other fluid flows around the tubes inside the shell. Heat is transferred between the fluids through the tube walls.

Advantages of Pipe Heat Exchangers

  • Versatility in handling high pressures and temperatures.
  • Suitable for applications involving high temperature differentials.
  • Can handle fluids with high fouling potential.
  • Easy to maintain and repair.
  • Well-suited for applications requiring a large heat transfer area.

Applications of Pipe Heat Exchangers

  • Power generation
  • Oil refining
  • Chemical processing
  • HVAC systems
  • Sanitary hygiene projects

As Özimeks, which specializes in hygienic products, we offer products for different needs.

DIN 11850 and EN 10357 are standards related to stainless steel tubes used in the food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries, among others. They specify the dimensions, tolerances, and material requirements for stainless steel tubes used in sanitary applications.

Both plate and pipe heat exchangers used in sanitary hygiene projects often utilize stainless steel materials that conform to these standards. The choice of materials and adherence to these standards ensure that the heat exchangers meet hygiene requirements and are suitable for use in sensitive applications such as food and pharmaceutical processing. In summary, both plate and pipe heat exchangers play crucial roles in sanitary hygiene projects, facilitating the efficient transfer of heat while maintaining hygienic standards. They utilize materials and design specifications in accordance with standards like DIN 11850 and EN 10357 to ensure compliance with industry requirements.
