High performance and excellent heat transfer even at low temperature differences – these are essential requirements for heat exchangers in power plants, steel production and district heating and cooling network or for cooling data centers.
With the new NX350M, Kelvion has developed the right plate for this task.
Thanks to its 350 mm connection diameter and plate dimensions of approx. 1,000 mm width and 3,000 mm height, it can be used to build units for thermal outputs in the double-digit megawatt range.
Thin, pressure-resistant, plates with a corrugation depth of only 2.4 mm and a highly turbulent media flow ensure efficient heat transfer. The Optiwave design reinforces this effect by ensuring an exceptionally uniform flow over the entire width of the plate.
The NX350M plates are available in stainless steel and titanium. There is also a choice of corrugation angles to suit the operating conditions. Other features of the new plate include compatibility with NT universal racks, the proven EcoLoc system for perfect fit of the adhesive-free seals or the PosLoc design that automatically aligns the plates during assembly.
With the new NX350M, the NX plate series now comprises six different sizes with connection diameters from DN 25 to DN 350. They cover various performance requirements in industry, power supply or data center cooling.
The effectiveness of the new NX350M plate's heat transfer was tested using a unit five meters long and weighing around 20 tons. An output in the 2-digit megawatt range, as requested by the customer, was achieved under all operating conditions. Because the test unit results are incorporated into the characteristics for dimensioning Kelvion heat exchangers, it benefits all Kelvion customers, as well as commissioning companies.
