  • Sulphuric Acid
  • Titanium Dioxide/Pigments
  • Chloride Process
  • Zinc
  • Acrylic Fibers
  • Caprolactam
  • Desulfurization
  • Glycols
  • Ethylene Oxide
  • Formaldehyde and Resins
  • Polyester
  • Polyols
  • Polystyrene
  • Waste Water
  • Fermentation
  • Alcohol/Ethanols
  • Textiles
  • Metal Finishing
  • Automotive

Benefits of using APV Heat Exchangers:

  • Wide selection of gasket and plate materials to stand up to aggressive process fluids
  • Ease of cleaning & inspection
  • Welded & weld-free plate pairs available
  • Limited use of gaskets by design reduces chance of leakage
  • Flexible configurations can be adapted to meet your changing process needs
  • Compact Design -- Maintenance area requires far less space to remove plates, than a shell & tube needs for tube bundle removal
  • Achieves up to 97% heat recovery
  • Efficient operation
  • High thermal efficiency saves money through reduction in required heat transfer area
  • Low liquid hold-up improves start-up time and reduces operating fluid costs
  • Eliminates complicated maintenance such as x-ray, ultrasonic and other non-destructive test procedures
  • Corrosion resistant materials reduces inspection and maintenance while ensuring reliable operation
  • Life cycle cost reduction
  • No moving parts eliminates vibration & reduces maintenance
  • Reduced fouling leads to higher thermal efficiency, reducing maintenance and operating costs
