Tranter Acquires Heat Transfer Technologies, SA
Tranter Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dover Corporation, has purchased HTT Heat Transfer Technologies SA of Fribourg, Switzerland, which operates under the trade name SWEP throughout the world.
Tranter President Ken Kaltz announced the acquisition, noting that it is part of Tranter's ongoing program to expand its heat transfer product line.
"SWEP designers and engineers are the thermal experts in brazed heat exchanger technology," said Mr. Kaltz.
"(The acquisition) expands Tranter's own high standards of heat transfer technology beyond our plate and frame, prime surface and all-welded plate heat exchangers." Mr. Kaltz also said SWEP's spacesaving designs and high heat transfer capabilities were part of a new generation of OEM systems that are less expensive to install, maintain and operate.
SWEP recently introduced what Tranter reports is the smallest fullyfunctional PHE unit in the world, which can fit in a human palm. Tranter, Inc. is located in Augusta, Ga. and has manufacturing facilities in Wichita Falls, Texas and Edgefield, S.C.
