The exceptionally high heat transfer efficiency-to-volume ratio provided by Heatric’s Printed Circuit Heat Exchangers (PCHEs) is one of the most profound benefits to utilising this technology.
PCHEs provide 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, and generate significant cost savings in the following areas:
Heatric PCHEs also offer significant improvements to the logistical aspects of deploying heat exchangers in a system, including installation and relocation, due to the significant size reduction the technology offers.
As a benefit of the diffusion bonding process used in the manufacturing of Heatric’s PCHEs, Heatric is able to integrate complex networks of internal flow passages. These intricate flow paths provide high-performance heat-transfer capabilities that are unachievable through traditional heat transfer technologies.
“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.”
