Safe and efficient heat transfer for higher equipment and process efficiency

Wieland Thermal Solutions at the WTT-Expo 2016

Ulm – 28 April 2016 – At the WTT-Expo 2016 in Karlsruhe from 1 to 2 June 2016, Wieland Thermal Solutions will present sophisticated thermal solutions for process as well as machinery and plant technology at booth D.11in the dm-arena. Enhanced surfaces on the tube inside and outsided as well as heat exchangers with designs optimised for customer requirements,made of a variety of materials, lead to considerable improvements in energy efficiency as well as capacity utilisation and moreover to an increasingly compact design.

In the field of machinery and plant technology, Wieland Thermal Solutions offers heat exchangers for a wide range of applications as well as double-wall safety tubes for the highest standards regarding equipment safety, for example in chemical processes such as the production of polysilicon.

GEWA-safe safety tubes are used in processes like the pre-heating of fuel gas for gas turbines, for the protection against environmentally harmful and toxic substances and for the insulation of heat transfer oil in so-called safety heat exchangers. The tube-in-tube solution has defined leakage paths between inner and outer tube for the absolutely reliable separation of fluids, e.g. reactive fluids,. This ensures highest equipment availability, efficiency and safety, as damage to inner or outer tube is immediately recognisable and can be fixed during planned maintenance. Good thermal contact of the two tubes results in very good heat transfer without additional heat transfer fluid.

At the trade fair, Wieland Thermal Solutions will also showcase current solutions for the increase in equipment efficiency in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries as well as for power plant technology. GEWA-PB evaporator tubes have in the meantime proved successful in ethylene production as well as natural gas liquefaction. They enable a compact heat-exchanger design. The surface structure of the tube enhances the effect of nucleate boiling, thus intensifying the evaporation process. For the different requirements regarding thermal conductivity, mechanical properties and corrosion resistance in the oil and gas-processing industry, Wieland Thermal Solutions will also present the product portfolio of low finned tubes in a wide range of materials. GEWA-K, GEWA-KS as well as Trufin S/T and Turbo-Chil tubes are made of carbon steel, stainless steel and titanium. They are mainly used in coolers, preheaters, condensers and evaporators to achieve savings in the overall design, for example regarding fluid inventory, piping, racks and foundations.
