Heat exchangers in organic and mineral chemistry
In organic and mineral chemistry, various steps require the use of heat exchangers in order to perform operations such as unit heating, cooling, condensation, evaporation and drying.
Barriquand heat exchangers are used in numerous chemical processes such as:
- Ammonia and fertilizers
- Organic solvants
- The Polymers industry: PEHD, hydrogen peroxide, propylene oxide
- Production of methionine, ethyl acetate, fatty acids, siliconized products, etc.
A construction file and quality tracking for every exchanger
Particular requirements and technical specifications for each process impose suitable heat exchanger dimensioning and design.
Thanks to our extensive experience in organic and mineral chemistry and more than 50 years of know-how, Barriquand thoroughly understands the specific needs of each of its clients. Therefore, we are in a position to choose between different designs, various construction types, and distinct materials grades, according to the codes (CODAP, ASME, AD MERKBLATT, etc.) and regulations applicable depending on the country (PED, U STAMP, SELO, TÜV, etc.).
For each exchanger, a construction file is prepared in our engineering and design departments at Barriquand and ASET. Each step in its production, right up to its final reception in the plant, is validated by the quality
