Assessing product properties for optimal heat exchanger performance
January 8, 2020 Categories: Food - Opinion Piece

In every situation where a heat exchanger is required, the combination of products and service fluids, application, temperature and other variables will be different. Understanding these properties ensures the correct heat exchanger is supplied. For example, high fouling materials may require a scraped-surface unit. Having adequate information will also ensure that the heat exchange process…
