Benefits of Scraped Surface Heat Exchangers
For all heat exchangers, there is a great sensitivity to any loss in heat, making efficiency the number one priority. With a build up of thicker liquid near the heat transfer surface, there can be a sizable loss in efficiency and pressure, resulting in higher running and pumping costs for the operator. One way of overcoming this problem is to physically scrape the layers of fluid that are causing the inefficiencies, through the use of a scraped surface heat exchanger. These heat exchangers are specially optimized to use a rotating blade that continually removes layers of thick fluid, foul, or ice that could otherwise build up over time. The blades can be metal or plastic, depending on the application, and should have FDA certifications for safety.
