Barriquand Technologies Thermiques PLATULAR® All-Welded Plate Heat Exchangers
Barriquand Technologies Thermiques (BaTT) specialises in innovative heat transfer solutions for a wide range of industries, including petrochemical, pharmaceutical and food.
Heat transfer solutions for chemical applications
BaTT provides reliable and versatile heat transfer units for a wide range of various applications, including:
- Electric heaters
- Fin tube heat exchangers
- Plate and gasket heat exchangers
- Platular® easy-to-clean welded plate heat exchangers
- Shell and tube units with straight or corrugated tubes
Each heat transfer unit is sized and built following accurate thermal and mechanical input data. The combination of new materials and innovative manufacturing techniques is expanding the scope of reliable and straightforward applications.
On each production site, the company’s quality management staff are continuously involved in the design, construction and final reception, according to international standards such as CE, TÜV, U-STAMP and Safety Quality Licensing Office (SQLO) China.
All-welded plate heat exchangers
As the manufacturer of PLATULAR® technology, BaTT has extensive, unique and exclusive knowledge.
Originally based on the requirements of the textile and chemical industries, the company’s heat exchangers are designed to meet the growing demand of a wide variety of new applications in various process industries such as the chemical, pharmaceutical, sugar, and hydrometallurgy markets.
These exchangers offer enhanced thermal performance, compact designs and higher flow capacities.
The versatility and reliability of the PLATULAR® wide-gap all-welded plate heat exchangers is suitable for solving many process requirements such as cleanability, compactness, thermal capacities, low hold-up volume, and visquous and fibrous liquids.
Each PLATULAR® plate-pack is available under many types of headers such as fully welded, with access covers, or only hand-holes, to address inspection and / or cleanability requirements.
In comparison, PLATULAR® units can be designed and constructed according to major international codes, including common online data analysis platform (CODAP), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and German standards Ad Merkblatt.
Exchanger units for vapour condensation and VOC recovery
BaTT’s heat exchanger units are also developed for vapour condensation under vacuum and volatile organic compound (VOC) recovery.
Units can also be designed to cater for large temperature changes with minimum log mean temperature difference (LMTD). Multi-stream applications are also possible within a single exchanger unit.
Hydroblasting devices for high-pressure cleaning
Free flow channels usually increase operation times between cleaning and consequently reduce cleaning frequency. Routine cleaning is easier to predict and can be scheduled at the most convenient time.
BaTT’s hydroblasting device can be introduced into the heat transfer channels from both ends of the unit.
Featuring hinged access covers and free flow channels on the process side, no additional lifting devices, process connection nozzles or scaffolding is required.
Hydroblasting can be performed in-situ, so there is no need to transport the heat exchanger to a specialised workshop.
Products and Services
Demethaniser Column Condenser
For cryogenic duty, a welded condenser is required and a compact design is preferred also as installation on top of a column (with a small diameter) of a shell and a tube condenser is too bulky.
HP Absorber Feed / Bottom in Reformer Plant
This interchanger is operated at 24 bar G and is transferring heat from a feed-to-bottom stream.
Lean / Rich Amine Welded Plate Heat Exchanger
This unit has been manufactured from 1.5mm thick AISI 316L plates.
Overhead Condenser: Scrubber Condenser
These units are flanged directly on a column and a close temperature approach is a very important design factor.
Quench Water Coolers in Ethane Cracking Plant (Olefin Plant)
The process gas is sent to a quench water tower where it is being cooled by direct contact with cooling water. This cooling water is further cooled by cooling tower water in series of Barriquand Platular® easy-to-clean welded plate heat exchangers.
