Brand & Trade Names

  • Concitherm Ideally suited for high vapour volumes The Concitherm range offers particularly high performance in rising-film plate evaporators. Its optimized corrugation design allows wide gaps without any contact points, up to 3m² of plate surface area. At the same time the minimum pressure drop means that there is no need for an intermediate pump. A further advantage of Concitherm over conventional tube heat exchangers is an almost 100% higher temperature transfer. Concitherm plate evaporators can also be used as boosters in combination with conventional plate evaporators. Concitherm 193 With its three m² of surface area, the Concitherm 193 cassette is the largest rising-film plate evaporator available on the market worldwide. Due to its special flow gap geometry, it is particularly suited for concentrating products forming deposits and containing solid particles, with large vapour volumes. This is a Free Flow plate evaporator with a 4.5 mm free flow gap on the vapour side and a 7.5 mm free flow gap on the product side. Its maximum connection sizes are DN 500 for the heating steam inlet and DN 600 for the outlet. The plate pack can be extended by integrating additional cassettes as with any conventional plate heat exchanger. The maximum heating surface per single unit is 1200 m². Plate evaporators are much more powerful When comparing the k-values of tube-rising-film and plate-rising-film evaporators, plate evaporators have a k-value which is about twice that of tube-type evaporators (2000 - 4000 kcal/m²h°C), i.e. 1000 m² of plate evaporator surface is equal to 2000 m² of tube-type evaporator surface. When processing products with a higher viscosity, the k-value of plates exceeds that of tubes even further.

It is used primarily in HVAC applications and performs well in other applications with the same conditions: HVAC Chemical Power Sugar Renewable Energy Food Improved Efficiency Pays Off for You. Our new OptiWave™ plate configuration takes heat transfer efficiency to a new level. Conventional plates allow most media to flow directly from one port to the other, reducing the flow on the far side. This means that they don’t make full use of the heat transfer area, and require more plates. Optiwave plates provide even media flow over the entire width, making full use of the area, and increasing efficiency with fewer plates. The result? Plates with Optiwave deliver the same or better heat transfer efficiency with fewer plates. The NX Series uses Optiwave, requiring less heat transfer surface to achieve the same capacity and thus significantly reducing your cost without compromising performance.
  • REKULUVO and REKUGAVO The GEA solution for gaseous media The names "REKULUVO" (recuperative air pre-heater) and "REKUGAVO" (recuperative gas pre-heater) describe two highly efficient, fully welded plate heat exchangers for gaseous products, working according to the countercurrent principle. This system achieves very high heat recovery rates. The heat transfer surfaces consist of profiled plates with a high specific capacity which are welded together into self-supporting packs. Both gases flow through the plates in countercurrent and are separated from each other without leakage. Mixing of the two gas streams is thus almost completely excluded. Fields of application The REKULUVO is particularly suitable for pre-heating the combustion air in petrochemical plants (fired heaters) or in methanol and ammonia plants. The REKUGAVO is the perfect heat exchanger for heating up flue gas to the catalyst reaction temperature, e.g. in denitration units of refuse incinerating plants. Technical data The capacities are between 5,000 and 2,000,000 Nm³/h. Air and flue gas in these volumes at up to a temperature of 600 °C can be circulated without any problems, and the recovery rate is up to 97 %!
  • Safetytherm No chance of product intermixing With Safetytherm you are always on the safe side. Our developers have created a perfect design that absolutely excludes the possibility of non-compatible products mixing with each other.
