HEAT EXCHANGERS

For over 80 years, SPX APV Heat Exchangers have been in the industry and are not going anywhere. During that time, heat exchangers have revolutionized food production through efficient heat transfer. As a result, F&H has several heat exchanger experts that can help you with configuring new and existing systems. In addition, they can help with troubleshooting and maintenance.

Here at F&H, we offer three types of heat exchangers: scrape surface, plate, and tubular. With heat exchanger solutions, it is important to know the different types of heat exchangers and the application advantages each one has. The table below lists the advantages and situations where the certain heat exchanger would be better suited.

We also offer an experienced service department with the ability to travel to the facility or take a heat exchanger for repair in house. Contact us today to see how we can service your heat exchanger!

A SCRAPE SURFACE IS A BETTER SOLUTION FOR:

  • Higher viscosity products
  • Higher capacities
  • Thorough cleaning

A PLATE IS A BETTER SOLUTION FOR:

  • Places with less space
  • Low viscosity products
  • A need for adjustable parameters
  • Regeneration (“Regen”) cycles
    • Sections in the system that utilize the hot product to heat the cold product and cool the hot product by passing them on opposing plate sides
      • Leads to substantial increase in efficiency

A TUBULAR IS A BETTER SOLUTION FOR:

  • Higher flow applications
  • Higher Temperature Applications
  • Cost effective solutions
  • Low pressure drop applications
  • Low maintenance applications
