Spiral Heat Exchanger Applications

Gooch Thermal spiral heat exchangers are superior to conventional heat exchangers for difficult heat transfer services involving fouling process fluids and high solids slurries, whether present on one side or on both sides.

As column-mounted condensers, our spiral heat exchanger is an elegant solution for condensing of column overhead vapors under vacuum with practically nil pressure drop and compact footprint.

Single Phase Flow - Liquid to Liquid Heat Transfer
Ideal for handling fouling fluids, viscous media, slurries, sewage sludge, and other dirty process fluids and effluents with suspended solids or fibers

  • Product coolers & heaters
  • Heat recovery economizers
  • Feed to bottoms interchangers
  • Sludge digester heaters, coolers & pasteurizers

Two Phase Flow - Vapor to Liquid Heat Transfer
Ideal for condensing and cooling of mixed vapors with inert gases under vacuum or steam heating of slurries and other viscous media

  • Steam heaters & vapor condensers
  • Overhead reflux condensers
  • Vaporizers & column reboilers
