A heat exchanger suitable for use in chemical process applications is available from Cometec.

High overall heat transfer coefficient can be obtained with a tantalum heat exchanger due to the material's good thermal conductivity and the exchanger's thin walls. With a low fouling factor, the exchanger from Cometec is suited for use in chemical process applications and with corrosive media. It resists corrosion caused by most organic and inorganic compounds.
