Tranter has received an order for several NovusBloc® welded plate heat exchangers for a refinery expansion project in North America. The project was engineered and procured by an American based global EPC contractor focusing on onshore and offshore oil and gas projects.
Tranter’s scope of supply includes a number of NovusBloc welded plate heat exchangers in different sizes that will be made of both 254SMO and 316L SS materials, plus a single Superchanger® gasketed plate heat exchanger.
Additionally, the plate heat exchangers will be installed inside the boundary limits of the main production process and thus handle flammable liquids and/or high temperature fluids.
The welded plate heat exchanger comes with a patented plate design that provides high weld quality and enhanced resistance against cyclic pressure and temperature process conditions while also minimizing unnecessary non-value adding pressure loss.
The NovusBloc is mechanically durable, as mechanical stress is reduced with a proprietary design that creates uniform stress contours in the weld seams.
