The global manufacturer of gasketed and welded plate heat exchangers is adding its SPW shell and plate heat exchangers suitable for CO2 cascade applications to the product database. The all-welded shell & plate heat exchanger features both high thermal efficiency and compactness.

Designed for pressures of 100 bar and above and temperatures up to 900 °C, Tranter’s SPW offers extreme performance even under extreme conditions and for a very wide range of applications. The fully welded heat exchangers feature alternating channels for hot and cold media to provide true countercurrent or co-current flow. The special design of compact plates produces a high performance due to the turbulent flow created by the corrugated and dimpled plate patterns.

High-quality heat exchangers all around the globe

With welded products manufacturing facilities in Germany, USA, China and India, Tranter has become a global and specialised manufacturer for high-quality products. All of their products are ISO certified adhering to the highest standards in the design, manufacturing and testing of plate heat exchangers.

Basic specifications SPW
  • Operating temperatures: between -200°C to + 900°C
  • Operating pressures: 100 bar
  • Plate range: from 200mm (0.66 ft) - 1000mm (3.28 ft) (depending on the model)
  • Extreme performance for extreme conditions

Tranter natural refrigerants technology for distribution centre

The high reliability of Tranter’s SPW heat exchangers is for example proven in a 11,500m2 distribution centre for fruits and vegetables in the Netherland. The system for the company Hilfresh International, provided and installed by Tranter, includes an ammonia (NH3) separator, NH3 – CO2 cascade heat exchangers, a CO2 vessel and emergency unit. It not only reduces the consumption of energy and the refrigerant but improves also the safety compared to conventional systems.
