Sanitary tube heat exchanger
In some food and chemical applications, heat treatment is applied at very high temperatures or pressures.
At these temperatures and pressures, plate heat exchanger cannot be used since heat resistance and compressive strength limit of the gasket is exceeded. For such applications, MIT engineers developed demountable and sanitary tube heat exchangers.
For this type of heat exchangers, the temperature limit reaches up to 350 °C. Welding of this type of heat exchangers should be done in a very sensitive manner to achieve a smooth flow surface.
In MIT manufacturing plant, this type of welding is carried out by certified welders and is inspected by expert engineers during 3-phase quality control stage. MIT engineers, who are experts in food processing, take capacity, location and type of the food to be processed into consideration while offering the most convenient solutions during design.
In high pressure applications, matters such as material thicknesses and welding technologies are of vital importance apart from the capacity calculations.
So, each heat exchangers manufactured by Ekin Industrial are tested 72 hours long at a pressure 1.5 times more than normal operating pressure and are only dispatched if a problem does not occur during the test.
