 Tranter Heat Exchangers - Plate and Frame 


Modularity for Flexibility

The Tranter heat exchangers provide outstanding efficiency, transferring heat from one liquid to another or from steam to liquid. These modular exchangers combine frames, plates and connections to form a variety of configurations. By using different types of plates, with different characteristics, Tranter heat exchangers can be adapted to a wide variety of applications. The exchangers can easily be disassembled for inspection, maintenance or even expansion by adding plates.

High Heat Transfer Rates

The flow turbulence created by Plate Heat Exchangers promotes maximum heat transfer. With their high efficiency, the Tranter heat exchangers can handle temperature approaches of less than 1°C (2°F). The unit also offers “U” or “K” values 3 to 6 times higher than shell and tube exchangers.

Tranter is a market leader in the development of high-efficiency plate pattern designs and flow configurations. Among these are Ultraflex plate patterns, our unique, neutral-plane gasket groove design and the ability to configure our units in either a parallel or a diagonal flow configuration. These options improve the utilization of available pressure drops and increase the efficiency of our units. Our diagonal flow option is especially important on larger flows and low NTU duties.  

Compact Design

With its high efficiency, the Tranter Plate Heat Exchanger conserves footprint and floor loading far beyond what is possible with an identical duty shell & tube heat exchanger. These Tranter heat exchangers can fit into 20–50% of a shell and tube footprint, including service and maintenance space. This compact footprint makes productive use of tight spaces, especially important with production expansions.

Lighter weight makes transportation and rigging less costly. And, it costs less. McRae Engineering also offers plate and frame heat exchanger repair, so with Tranter heat exchangers, you won’t have to worry about looking for spare parts or quality service technicians – we are here to take care of your equipment quickly and effectively.
