Maritime Plate Heat Exchangers Highlighted by GEA
GEA Heat Exchangers, represented in Russia and CIS by its subsidiary GEA Mashimpeks, will present sealed, high-performance plate heat exchangers for high-level output in use with maritime engines at the upcoming NEVA 2013 Expo.
These heat exchangers provide dedicated cooling of engine fuel, which reduces the viscosity below the level recommended by leading engine manufacturers. In addition, the fuel burns with less residue and emits less pollution.
The models in GEA's NT range of heat exchangers cool the light fuel oil in use; in addition, they are flexibly scalable and have a small footprint. In addition, the fuel burns with less residue and emits less pollution.
These plate heat-exchanger coolers are externally installed, which enables retrofitting without difficulty. No modifications are necessary for the engine itself.
The NT range was especially developed for maritime use. Its OptiWave technology assures maximum flow over the entire plate surface and guarantees a high heat-transfer rate. The plates are exactly positioned with the aid of GEA PosLoc technology, to ensure that the seals remain fully functional longer, according to the manufacturers, the result is a stable, perfectly aligned, and tightly sealed plate package.
GEA will be exhibiting this and other products at NEVA 2013, September 24 to 27, 2013. in St. Petersburg, Russian Federation at, at the Lenexpo Fairground, Hall 8.
