With over 30,000 units handling tough duties worldwide, Compabloc is the market champion when it comes to heat transfer. It is engineered for superior reliability and performance under challenging conditions, with 3-5 times the thermal efficiency of traditional shell-and-tube solutions – along with a compact design that is easy to install and service. For higher pressure demands, the Compabloc+ secures all of these benefits on top of safe operation at up to 60 bar.
Discover how you can improve sustainability
- Superior heat transfer and minimal fouling combine to give exceptional thermal efficiency and energy savings
- Asymmetric flows handled easily with flexible flow configurations
- Crossing temperatures in a single unit maximizes energy recovery and reduces power bills, and boosts your process performance
- Fully 100% mechanically cleanable with no crevices that can cause corrosion issues
- Laser-welded plates provide ultimate reliability
Why switch from traditional heat exchangers?
Compabloc can handle demanding positions and applications with duties that involve aggressive media, extreme temperatures and high pressures. Find out more about the applications and positions in which you can use the Compabloc heat exchanger.
