  • Experts in combustion control - Expert Paper

    Fired heaters are integral to hydrocarbon processing (HP). Specifically designed for the reaction of fuel and air to produce extremely high gas temperatures, heaters transfer this energy to potentially highly flammable process fluids via heat exchangers. They consume large quantities of fuel, produce large quantities of emissions and are a potential safety hazard to personnel and plant. However, ...

  • Advantages of plate heat exchanger

    1. The heat transfer coefficient of plate heat exchanger is higher than that of other heat exchangers. When designing plate heat exchangers, some special corrugates are designed on the plates. Never underestimate the role of these corrugates. They can make the fluid flow with strong turbulence at very low flow rates. The self-purification effect of turbulence can prevent fouling. The ...
