A reduction in the unit's overall footprint, volume and weight by up to 85% when compared to traditional technologies such as shell and tube, generates significant cost savings in the following areas:
Heatric PCHEs facilitate each logistical aspect of employing heat exchanger technology in your company including installation and relocation due to the unique diffusion bonding process involved in their construction.
By employing this solid state wielding procedure, we are able to integrate intricate networks of internal flow passages within the solid, high integrity block which assists in achieving their high performance transfer capabilities.
The efficiency-to-volume ratio of Heatric PCHEs is simply not obtainable using conventional fabrication techniques and is just one of the many benefits of diffusion bonding technology.
‘It has been estimated that the employment of Heatric Printed Circuit Heat Exchangers in the Pagerungan Gas Processing facility has saved U.S. $10.4 MM in total capital costs over what would have required if conventional shell and tube units had been utilized instead'
