API Schmidt Bretten

API_logo8

API Schmidt-Bretten plate heat exchangers provide optimum heat transfer performance with lower surface area and lower capital cost. The unique design of the API Schmidt-Bretten plate results in a very small heat transfer area because of the high heat transfer coefficient and pure counter current flow. API Schmidt-Bretten plate heat exchangers can cool hot fluids to within one degree of the cold fluid, making heat recovery in excess of 96% technically and economically possible. Unique features of the API Schmidt-Bretten plate include lower liquid volume, minimal fouling, superior sealing, expandability and ease of maintenance. The plates are available in 300 series stainless steel, titanium and other high alloys. Brazed and welded plate designs are also available in a wide range of 

Typical Applications Include:

  • Lube Oil Cooling
  • Free Cooling
  • Boiler Blow Down Recovery
  • Cooling Tower Isolation
  • Swimming Pool Heating
  • Greenhouse Heating
