SONDEX® Free Flow plate heat exchangers
Our SONDEX® Free Flow sets the new standard for improved performance and reliability when your media require gentle treatment and are unsuitable for regular heat exchangers due to viscosity, fouling tendency, or particle contents.
What does that mean for you?
Prolonged production time and loss of product due to frequent, unscheduled maintenance or cleaning are undesirable consequences of operating with hard-to-handle media.
Our Free Flow plate heat exchangers eliminate these problems entirely and let you benefit from maximum uptime with powerful solutions designed to handle challenging applications. The Free Flow pattern’s contact-free plate channels counteract fouling and clogging by providing ample room for the media to flow and preserving optimal heat transfer.
Experience reliable, high performance and gentle media treatment coupled with very long intervals between service. If your media contains solids, fibers, or other particles the service intervals can be extended even further by regularly back-flushing the system.
Easy cleaning, maximum uptime
CIP (Cleaning in Place) is the preferred option for media with fouling tendencies. The efficient design of our SONDEX® Free Flow units ensures a low hold-up volume which minimizes the amount of chemicals needed for the CIP process, and thus greatly reduces cleaning time while also being environmentally friendly.
Features and benefits
- Gentle treatment and even distribution of the media provide the highest possible product output quality.
- High heat transfer efficiency and extended intervals between cleaning ensure operation for an entire campaign with minimum downtime and maximum value for money.
- Large plate gap designed to counteract fouling with sizeable plate channels and no stagnant zones.
