Technology Showcase: Heat Exchangers
Koss Industrial, Inc.
A unique gasket design prevents intermingling of opposing streams by directing any leaking fluid to the outside of the unit. Modular design facilitates re-streaming of heat exchanger to accommodate expanding or changing loads. Controlled turbulence assures the highest rate of heat transfer even at relatively low pressure drop and velocity. When required, higher allowable differential operating pressures permit increased fluid velocities and turbulence. All plate surfaces can be cleaned and sanitized safely and effectively by properly designed in-place recirculation systems. All units easily opened for thorough internal inspection.
The Pro5Plus™ plate, from AGC Engineering is a high thermal efficiency plate formulated to increase regeneration and save plant energy costs, and it is specifically designed for fluid milk applications. The gasket is snap-in style for easy plant maintenance. It is available as an upgrade for your existing plates or in a brand new AGC unit. It will fit in your existing AR56-SH, AR51-M, or AR51-H (self-contained hydraulic closure) frame. The Pro5Plus™ is the latest addition to the ProFlow™ sanitary series of plates. The ProFlow™ range has been specially designed for food and dairy applications, including an expanded port area, superior inlet design and a partially relieved gasket groove. AGC Engineering offers complete sanitary heat exchanger services, including new units, spare parts, re-gasketing, plate exchange programs and field inspections.

Ultra corrugated™ Tubular Heat Exchangers from Advanced Process Solutions (APS) provide higher heat transfer efficiencies than standard corrugated tubes. The unique design features deeper corrugations that induce multiple mixing zones and minimize the product boundary layer. Increased product rotation is especially advantageous for efficient processing of highly-viscous products, such as cheese sauce and pudding. APS offers a complete line of double-, triple-, multi-, and coiled-tube heat exchangers. In addition to specializing in heat transfer applications, APS manufactures complete process systems for the dairy, food & beverage industries including pasteurization systems for milk, cream or yogurt; extended life (UHT) systems for ice cream mix or coffee creamers; and aseptic systems for a wide variety of dairy products. APS engineers also are available for complete technical audits and process evaluations to optimize the performance of your current process system.
