Bulk Heat Exchangers

In many handling processes of bulk materials it is necessary to thermally treat powders or pellets, ie to cool or to heat them.

The heat exchangers Enge Plas supplies is a high-efficient cost-saving apparatus, compact in design. For many industries, eg plastics, food, fertilizer or chemical, this offers an ideal solution for thermally treating the respective bulk materials.

Range of Options

  • Gravity
    • Original design was developed for free-flowing coarse powders and pellets.
    • Bulk material flows from top to bottom due to gravitational forces through the vertical tubes which are surrounded by a heating or cooling medium on the shell side.
    • As a result the bulk material is either heated or cooled.
  • Inline Gravity
    • If vertical installation in the process building is not possible due to lack of height, this can be used for free-flowing coarse powders and pellets.
    • Heat exchanger is then integrated into a pneumatic dilute-phase conveying system and the heat exchanger can be positioned as required.
    • Also attractive for retrofitted systems, as it can be installed during the ongoing production process at variable locations.
  • Inline
    • Developed especially for fine powders.
    • The principle of this is the direct installation of the heat exchanger in a vertical pneumatic conveying line.
    • Pneumatically conveyed powder is fed into the vertically positioned heat exchanger from below with the conveying gas.
