Clients throughout the world use Mosman bulk solids heat exchangers to heat or cool free-flowing bulk solids: whether as part of the final process step, to cool down the end product, or as an intermediate step, when the product is pre-heated. The ingenious design of the Mosman heat exchanger makes it the ideal solution for these treatment processes.
The bulk solids heat exchangers have a modular product structure, based on first-class pillow plates, developed by Mosman. These pillow plates are assembled into one or more plate banks, between which the bulk solids, to be cooled or heated, flow. These are heated or cooled to the temperature required by the heat-exchanging medium – primarily water, steam or thermal oils – which flow through the channels of the pillow plates.
This indirect method of heating or cooling is up to 90% more energy efficient than the direct exchange of heat would be.
Mosman uses an innovative and unique construction to assamble the pillow plates: the Mosman Slot Manifold. Many other bulk solids heat exchangers feature hose connections, which lead the heat exchanging medium from an external manifold to the pillow plates. Mosman uses internal manifolds, to which the pillow plates are connected up directly. The result is a certified, leakproof design that minimizes the risk of caking, lump formation and contamination. The fixed connection between the pillow plates and the connection pipe also functions as a plate support, eliminating the need for a separate structure with horizontal surfaces, on which product residue could be left behind. This structure also guarantees highly consistent plate spacing.
