Dimpled tube/pipe technology adds a new dimension to scope of use.Turbulent flow conditions are achieved at low flow rates.
Up goes the efficiency!
Product flows through multiple inner tubes and is cooled/heated by service fluid/gas travelling in the opposite (counter current) direction. Dimples generate efficiency.
This remarkable innovation was developed by the founder of Teralba Industries as a result of his observations of how much quicker liquids heat / cool when laminar flow patterns are disturbed/interrupted. By arranging dimples at just the right pitch and centres, the liquid is 'jostled' but not restricted and there is little change in the pressure drop characteristics compared to plain (undimpled) surfaces.
There is a HUGE change in the heat transfer rates, efficiency rates soar and the cleanability of the tubes remain closely comparable to plain tubes as there are no continuous corrugations which retain product/ cleaning solutions.
- Highly versatile: suits most fluids/gases.
- Particulates or solids in suspension are easily processed with this configuration.
- Ideal for foods, slurries, UHT pastuerisers.
