Our heaters are designed for direct immersion into the majority of solutions, acids or alkaline and are manufactured in various materials such as Teflon, FEP, PFA, porcelain, quartz glass, PTFE, stainless steel and titanium.

GMF Equipment Ltd stock SYNOTHERM Plate Heat Exchangers

Plate Heat Exchanger Synotherm

The metal plate heat exchanger SYNOTHERM is designed as an indirect heating or cooling system for use in galvanising lines and tanks where small assembly dimensions and a good resistance to process fluids are required. The space saved (1/3 compared to pipe coil heat exchangers) with the same performance data is a particularly good reason for using plate heat exchangers.

The heat exchanger is made from stainless steel or titanium and is designed for the passage of hot and cool fluids (e.g. water, heat transfer oil, steam).

For the efficient design of the plate heat exchanger SYNOTHERM we Kindly request two forms:

a) the form for the heat demand calculation

b) the form for the dimensions of the heat exchanger

Immersion Heaters for metal treatment processes

We stock removable core and rod type immersion heaters. They are suitable for positioning on the side or bottom of tanks and can be used for frost protection and keeping constant temperature in storage tanks or IBC’s.

We can recommend the correct power of heater for your chemistry  – simply complete either a frost calculation or power calculation form online and our experts will get back to you.
