Cooling of copper sludge by means of using heat exchangers
In this case, the energy recovery is carried out by cooling the sludge from 90 to 62 ° C by means of the same sludge from another process, entering the casing at 30 ° C.
With a shell diameter of 36″ (DN900) and more than 600 corrugated inner tubes, we get a power of more than 8.000KW in each line.
These industrial shell and tube heat exchangers consist of 4 passes being manufactured entirely in stainless steel 316L.
Heat exchangers technical documentation
The importance of rheology in the design of any processing plant is crucial since the sizing of many of the elements composing it is very dependent on this “resistance”, also taking special relevance with food products: heat exchangers, pipes, valves, pumps, mixers, etc.
To design a heat exchanger it is necessary to have certain data, such as the process flow rate, the temperature and the physical properties of products.
Hairpin heat exchangers have a more efficient and economical design compared to a multiple pass heat exchanger when the process requires a temperature crossing between the cold and hot fluid.
