Graphite exchangers utilize multiple bundles to improve heat transfer rates and simplify maintenance. Model RM allows the entire heat exchanger to operate in a countercurrent flow regime, thereby reducing the required surface area by up to 40 percent vs. traditional shell and tube technologies. Applications with close temperature approaches or even temperature crosses are easily handled. The bundle modules can be removed for cleaning or inspection by maintenance personnel. Graphite exchangers are used for heating and cooling corrosive chemicals such as hydrochloric, sulfuric and phosphoric acids.
