Shell and tube heat exchangers for the modification of a biodiesel plant in Spain
SACOME has successfully concluded the supply of 8 shell and tube heat exchangers for the modification of a biodiesel plant in Spain.
To get an idea of the scale of this project, SACOME has manufactured a total of 8 tubular heat exchangers which have consumed 16 tons of stainless steel 316L and an equivalent length of more than 12 km in tube.
Once again, SACOME has demonstrated its ability to carry out large projects and its close collaboration with the engineering company involved, for both, thermal design and mechanical design of this industrial heat exchangers.
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.
