Benefits of Inflated Heat Transfer
Paul Mueller Company’s original, patented Temp-Plate® inflated heat transfer surface is a highly versatile panel-type heat exchanger that serves as an efficient alternative to shell and tube, pipe coil, and more. When compared to shell and tube, Temp-Plate panels require significantly less space and minimizes chance of fouling, all while providing efficient heat transfer rates in high pressure or corrosive environments.
What is Temp-Plate Inflated Heat Transfer?
Temp-Plate utilizes two sheets of stainless steel, titanium Grade-1, carbon steel or high alloy metals that are spot welded and seamed around the edges to create a single panel. After the panel is welded, it is inflated to create space for the flow of a heating or cooling medium that keeps a constant and turbulent flow between the welded panels.
Uses for Inflated Heat Transfer
Temp-Plate can be welded, formed or designed to meet your exact needs with irregular shapes, high pressures, or corrosive environments. Designed to meet nearly any application, Temp-Plate can be used as an immersion, clamp-on, or integral heat transfer surface. We can work with you to find the best application for your heat transfer equipment needs in a wide variety of industries. Whether it be in chemical processing, energy recovery, or oil & gas, applications for Temp-Plate go as far as the imagination will take you.
