Continuous Helical Flow Technology™ for Electric Heat Exchangers


As companies take steps to reduce their overall carbon footprint, it makes sense to switch to electric heat exchangers. However, there is a lot of conflicting information in the market. It’s important to understand that the best heaters have technology that will meet future electrification needs.

Traditional heat exchanger designs, such as segmental baffles, are known to have dead zones where hot spots can occur, causing coking and fouling of the heat exchanger. This Tech Talk examines a solution to these problems. Continuous Helical Flow Technology™ enables ultra-high heat transfer that not only reduces coking and fouling but also increases uptime.
