LAUDA Heating and Cooling Systems, the plant construction division in precise temperature control, specializes in the manufacture of individual solutions based on customer requirements. The experts from LAUDA hold sway over a temperature range from -150 to 550 °C which is required for production facilities in the pharmaceutical industry or test stations in the automotive sector. The temperature control specialist has now designed and manufactured a heat transfer system for a long-standing customer, one of the German chemical companies.
The customer ordered a system which must reach a working temperature of 400 °C without any problems. The heater is used in the field of materials research, in so-called scale-up tests and for the preparation of reactions which make such a high temperature essential. However, this is increasingly in demand in the meantime because it allows more effective heat transfer, thereby enabling a higher throughput and optimization of temperature-relevant production processes.
The particular feature of the jump from 350 to 400 °C is that the engineers at LAUDA have to deal with significantly higher working pressures. This requires expertise in pipeline construction and the individual equipment components which not every manufacturer can offer.
