SONDEX® sanitary plate heat exchangers
Our SONDEX® sanitary plate heat exchangers are designed for use in food, dairy, and beverage applications as well as other applications with strict sanitary requirements. We have the in-depth process knowledge and extensive experience needed to engineer hygienic, high-performance solutions.
What does that mean for you?
We take pride in providing superior end product quality through gentle handling of the media while adhering to the strict cleanliness requirements of each industry. Available with both Fishbone and Free Flow plates, we have the tools needed to provide you with the exact right heat exchanger for your application.
The frames of our sanitary plate heat exchangers are designed with cleaning and maintenance in mind. Sturdy nylon rollers make the movable cover slide open effortlessly, and locking bushes with ball bearings allow it to be closed tightly again. Service access has never been easier!
Ultimate Leakage Protection
Our Sonder Safe technology is a double-walled plate system designed to make any leakage, however unlikely, visible from outside the heat exchanger. This safety measure ensures that the malfunctioning unit can quickly be identified and repaired.
Because all leaks are external instead of internal, the media are always separated. This makes double-walled sanitary plate heat exchangers the ideal solution when operating with media that must not be contaminated at any cost.
Multi-section design for advanced applications
Our sanitary plate heat exchangers are also available as multi-section solutions which can be regarded as multiple heat exchangers combined into a single installation, divided by intermediate frames.
