Plate Heat Exchangers

Tranter is soon entering its fifth decade engineering, manufacturing and supporting gasketed plate heat exchangers. We have listened carefully to our customers. Beyond simply purchasing a plate heat exchanger that meets a spec, customers tell us they want an added-value solution with maintenance-friendly designs and life cycle support. We have responded with significant investments in global coverage with a local presence. We are committed to extending our support to you through our specialized Service Center network, with preventive maintenance services and emergency uptime restoration service devoted solely to plate-type heat exchangers.

Shell & Plate Welded Heat Exchangers

Extending Capability Into Even Tougher Duties with Welded Heat Exchangers
The Tranter Shell & Plate Heat Exchangeris designed as a performance upgrade over shell & tube, block-type welded and brazed aluminum heat exchangers. The exchanger offers high thermal performance with compact size, similar to that of gasketed plate heat exchangers, with low hold-up volume and low installed weight, especially when filled
Now in its second generation of refinement, today’s Shell & Plate Heat Exchanger is the fruit of Tranter’s Welded Competence Center in Artern, Germany. Combining field experience with design input from Tranter’s global R&D operations, this test bed of advanced manufacturing processes and equipment has introduced extended-capability refinements. We are now only beginning to explore the shell & plate exchanger’s potential in ever-more-difficult duties. In addition to design improvements, we have added larger plates and extended-thermal-length oblong plates to the product line.

Spiral Heat Exchangers

The Single-Channel Alternative
Heating or cooling of particle-laden or viscous fluids is a difficult duty for most types of heat exchangers. Spiral heat exchangers with their compact, single channel design are ideally suited for outstanding thermal and uptime performance in these duties. Spirals can attain high heat-transfer coefficients with particle-loaded fluids, while avoiding fouling, plugging, unequal fluid distribution or dead spots in both channels. Other significant duties involve vapor/liquid and gas or vapo/liquid service where the spiral's subcooling capability and long condensation path maximizes recovery.

​Prime Surface Heat Exchangers

PLATECOIL® Prime Surface Heat Exchanger

Tranter PLATECOIL® Prime Surface Heat Exchangers deliver efficient and uniform thermal control in immersion duty; jacketing vessels, reactors or dryer shells; within fluidized beds or configured as gas phase heat recovery banks. In thermal processing of any kind, PLATECOIL exchangers give you better thermal control than pipe coil, half pipe, dimple sheet or gridcoil (see pipe coil comparison below).


Processors worldwide have used PLATECOIL to:
•Eliminate sparging for reduced water and steam consumption
•Capture waste energy from moist, wet flue gases at temperatures as low as 67°C (150°F)
•Recycle low-grade heat energy from drains
•Improve economic performance in existing tanks and vessels using clamp-on retrofits
These highly versatile exchangers conform to ISO 9001 standards for design, manufacture and testing for either one-off, special fabrications or high-volume engineered subsystems. Consider all the factors—flow rate, flow balance, heat transfer coefficient, durability—PLATECOIL is engineered and crafted for faster start-ups, constant temperatures, better control and longer service life.

​MAXCHANGER® Mini-Welded Plate Heat Exchangers

Description And Benefits of Mini-Welded Plate Heat Exchangers

Tranter PLATECOIL® Prime Surface Heat Exchangers deliver efficient and uniform thermal control in immersion duty; jacketing vessels, reactors or dryer shells; within fluidized beds or configured as gas phase heat recovery banks. In thermal processing of any kind, PLATECOIL exchangers give you better thermal control than pipe coil, half pipe, dimple sheet or gridcoil (see pipe coil comparison below).


A quick look at the MAXCHANGER® Mini-Welded Heat Exchanger may lead you to dismiss it as a compact brazed heat exchanger (CBE) type. Yet there is nothing brazed in this unit—its standard materials are all-welded 316L SS or titanium. In most applications and even under extreme conditions, compared to other smaller size heat exchangers, MAXCHANGER is truly worth a second look.
