Heat Exchanger Materials

PCHE heat exchanger flow plateHeatric exchangers are currently available in the following materials depending on duty, process materials and operating environment:

  • Stainless steels: 316L, 304L
  • Duplex 2205 (S31803)
  • Titanium grade 2
  • 6 Moly (NO 8367)

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is the most common material used in the construction of Heatric PCHEs as its innate properties are able to facilitate the wide range of benefits offered by diffusion bonded exchangers.

These corrosion resistant alloys are able to operate effectively under both extreme hot and cold temperatures without becoming damaged as a result of thermal fatigue.

This is crucial when working with heavy industrial machinery capable of producing substantial amounts of heat when online and helps in achieving the high performance attributed to our uniquely constructed PCHEs.

Material development is continually ongoing with current research into Alloy 59 (NO6059), Stainless steel 310 (S31008) and Alloy 800H (NO8810) amongst other potential materials for use in advanced and specialised duties.
