Vesper™ PVDF/PFA Heat Exchangers

Vesper PVDF/PFA Heat Exchangers

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Vesper series of PVDF/PFA heat exchangers offer a variety of solutions for heating, cooling, and temperature trimming of fluids used in ultra-pure manufacturing processes. Vesper models are ideal for heating and cooling deionized water, solvents, and Piranha/SC1, among other fluids. Moreover, all Vesper heat exchangers feature the efficient and patented Heateflex heating coil. Furthermore, these heaters come either as standalone heat exchangers, or as an integrated heater/heat exchanger. Models are available in 2 kW to 5 kW.

PROCESS PURITY IN A COMPACT PACKAGE 

High-purity polypropylene, PVDF, or PFA are used to construct the Vesper’s heater housing. Most importantly, though, the heat exchanger tube bundles are all-PFA to ensure chemical compatibility. Furthermore, all Vesper models feature a compact design, with the maximum heating surface in the smallest possible footprint for efficient heat transfer. These heat exchangers are typically 10″ to 30″ tall, and range from 2″ to 6″ in diameter.

PLUG-AND-PLAY HEAT EXCHANGER

Vesper heat exchangers come with a microprocessor-based temperature controller in a NEMA-rated external switching chassis. Besides that, this chassis includes all controls and components needed to meet your stringent heating requirements, and easily integrates into current systems. Furthermore, as options, these heat exchangers can also be configured with a Type-K thermocouple and a fluid drain for simplified cleaning.

KEY SPECIFICATIONS

Vesper heat exchangers are available in outputs of 2 kW to 5 kW (dependent on model and customer voltage), and in voltages from 200 VAC to 480 VAC, 1-phase (dependent on wattage). Ambient temperatures are 95º C (203º F) for the shell, and 180º C (356º F) for the tubes. Operating pressures are dependent upon the model.
