Self-cleaning Heat Exchanger for heating a Zinc Phosphate Solution
Together with our partner Sistemas in Turkey (Izmir), a self-cleaning heat exchanger was successfully installed at a plant of a large manufacturer and supplier of iron and steel (products) in the Kocaeli Province in Turkey. The self-cleaning heat exchanger is used to keep the temperature of a zinc phosphate bath constant in which steel components are treated with a zinc phosphate coating. The self-cleaning heat exchanger, made of stainless steel, operates with ceramic cleaning particles of 3 mm to prevent fouling of the heat exchanger tubes. Since the installation, the self-cleaning configuration has kept the heat exchanger tubes clean.
