In highly corrosive media, successful heat exchange is highly dependent upon many factors including the materials resistance to the combined elements of chemical attack, high temperatures, and pressures. There are many exotic materials that can be used to handle corrosive chemicals, such as special glass, titanium, and zirconium; however, a short service life may be expected.
The all-plastic Georg Fischer CALORPLAST immersion heat exchanger was designed specifically for heating or cooling highly corrosive media. Georg Fischer CALORPLAST immersion heat exchangers are manufactured from PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride), polypropylene, and polyethylene. The extreme chemical inertness of PVDF and its flexibility in fabrication make it an ideal material of construction in many chemical processes. The smooth surface of plastics tends toward very low contamination and incrustation even in extreme applications. This enables use of the Georg Fischer CALORPLAST immersion heat exchanger in applications where metal exchangers require frequent maintenance to remove buildup from exchanger tubes.
Georg Fischer CALORPLAST immersion heat exchangers are produced by a patented process of continuous tube extrusion and manifold injection overmolding to assure tight connections between the exchanger tubes and the manifolds. There are no mechanical joints which can be weak spots subject to chemical attack and stress cracking. CALORPLAST is constructed of modular elements which enable the heat exchanger to be adapted to suit a particular vessel geometry. Unlike many other plastic heat exchangers, CALORPLAST is a self-supporting design. Hangers, brackets, etc., are not necessary unless specifically requested by the customer.
All Georg Fischer CALORPLAST immersion heat exchangers are custom designed for specific operating conditions. Please use the Application Advisor to submit your operating data for quotation.
