The Chemetator is a scraped surface heat exchanger ideal for many applications in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. During operation, the product flows through a jacketed cylinder containing a rotating central shaft on which the scraper blades are mounted. These rotating blades continuously remove the product from the heat transfer tube.
The Chemetator is particularly suitable for the continuous processing of high viscosity and heat sensitive materials that cannot be handled efficiently using batch methods or conventional heat exchangers.
The Chemetator features variable speed rotating scraper blades which clean the heat transfer surface several hundred times a minute. This ensures excellent product mixing and high heat transfer efficiency on a continuous basis. Product mixing can be improved still further with the use of an optional eccentric shaft.
The Chemetator will handle a wide range of heat sensitive and viscous materials at temperatures from –35ºC to 170ºC and operating pressures up to 120 bar.
