Unicus is designed to provide effective heat transfer with difficult materials, particularly those which have a high fouling potential yet need delicate handling. Suited for industrial and hygienic applications, the exchanger design is based on traditional shell-and-tube heat exchangers with the addition of a patented stainless steel scraping mechanism. The scrapers are hydraulically moved back and forth within each interior tube. This movement performs two key functions: it minimizes potential fouling and creates turbulence within the material. Both of these actions help to increase heat transfer rates. Together, they create a heat transfer process suited for viscous and high fouling materials.
